Everton: Predicted XI vs Crystal Palace

Everton will travel to Selhurst Park today in an important game where the Toffees must take their chances for a win that could put them back in the top half of the table.

Rafa Benitez’s side have only won one of their last five games, but their only victory was a convincing one, where they beat Arsenal 2-0 at Goodison Park on Monday evening, with Richarlison looking back to his best and their most recent win should take them into the Crystal Palace game full of confidence.

With that being said, here is how Football FanCast expects to see Everton line up vs Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Premier League - Everton - Predicted XI - Crystal Palace

With only two changes to the starting side in the victory over Arsenal, just Mason Holgate and Andre Gomes get into the predicted XI for Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace.

Mason Holgate comes in for Yerry Mina as the defender sustained an injury in the 31st minute of the Arsenal game, with Rafa Benitez ruling him out of the Premier League fixture this week.

Should Rafa start Gomes?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The £64k-per-week defender has made seven appearances for the Toffees so far this season, so shouldn’t have a problem integrating back into the backline amidst Mina’s injury.

One player who caught the eye against Arsenal but was not in the original line up was Andre Gomes, who put in a fantastic performance when he was subbed onto the pitch in the 66th minute of the game. That substitution effectively changed the game as the midfielder worked well in the centre to lead to two late goals for Demarai Gray and Richarlison.

The Portuguese should get into the team over Andros Townsend today, although the wide man has found good form with Everton, it could be a good chance to give the 30-year-old a rest ahead of a huge clash against Chelsea midweek.

Can you beat this impossible Everton quiz?! Starting off easy...

Gomes assisting Gray to secure the winning goal of the game against Arsenal should comfortably cement his place in the team at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon and we’re sure that the 28-year-old will be hoping to make an impact that will give Benitez a positive dilemma in the way he sets up his team in future.

Richarlison will also be hoping to make an impact as he got back to his scoring ways on Monday evening against Arsenal, with two goals disallowed the Brazilian finally netted a goal that stood in the 80th minute and we’re sure his performance will inject some confidence into the striker going into the game.
