Everton vs Crystal Palace Match Details
Everton vs Crystal Palace kicks-off at 12.30 at Goodison Park on Saturday 8 February. The match is being broadcast live on BT Sport 1.
Everton appear to be going from strength to strength under Carlo Ancelotti and last weekends 3-2 win away at Watford was a Herculean effort after going 2-0 down early in the match. Those three points made up for the 2-0 lead the Toffees surrendered in their 2-2 draw at Newcastle, whilst Ancelotti has also steered Everton to 1-0 home victories against Burnley and Brighton.
Stats wise, Everton’s last eight matches have been split over and under 2.5 goals, whilst both teams have scored in five of those matches.
Crystal Palace Form
Consecutive home defeats against Sheffield United and Southampton have seen Palace plummet to 14th place in the Premier League table. That means Roy Hodgson will suddenly be looking in his wing mirrors with 13 games of the season to go as Palace are only six points above the relegation zone.
Scoring goals is Palace’s main problem and, as they’ve failed to win any of their last six Premier League games, the Eagles are a dodgy bet for win purposes.
Palace’s matches often tend to be low scoring affairs, and 10 of their last 12 Premier League matches have produced less than 2.5 goals.
Everton vs Crystal Palace Head-To-Heads
Everton and Crystal Palace have played each other 21 times in the Premier League, with Everton winning nine of those head-to-heads to Crystal Palace’s five, whilst seven have ended drawn.
But Everton hasn’t dominated matches at Goodison Park like you might think those stats suggest, with Everton and Palace both winning four matches, whilst there have been three draws.
Three of the last five matches between the two sides have been draws but a closer inspection shows they were all at Selhurst Park, including a 0-0 draw this season when Everton were struggling. The two matches at Goodison Park in the last two seasons have both been won by Everton, 3-1 and 2-0.
