Everton take on Crystal Palace at Goodison Park, aiming to win and secure their much wanted Premier League safety before going into the final game of the season against Arsenal. With 36 points in 36 games, the Toffees sit 16th with a game in hand over Leeds United. A win will guarantee their safety but getting past Patrick Viera’s side isn’t going to be a stroll in the park.

Palace are comfortably placed in the mid table with 45 points and are playing some fine quality football. The Eagles will be a stern opposition to get past but Everton’s desire and survival instincts should kick in and give them a tough fight.

Crystal Palace will be without Michael Olise, James Tomkins, James McArthur and Nathan Ferguson. On the other hand, Everton will also have some significant absentees such as Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph, Salomon Rondon and Jarrad Branthwaite missing through injury and suspension. Michael Keane has recovered from his illness and is likely to start alongside Mason Holgate.

Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford

Jordan Pickford’s assured hands have kept Everton alive in the relegation scrap. If it had not been for his heroics against Chelsea and Leicester City, the Toffees would have crumbled. In the past he has been subjected to slander for his errors, it’s time people appreciate his solidity in between the posts. Odsonne Edouard and Wilfried Zaha together average 4.36 shots per game and there’s a high possibility that they will keep Pickford busy.
