Everton is hosting Crystal Palace at Goodison Park in round 33 of the English Premier League. Everton is still fighting for their lives in the EPL, and if everything goes well, they will secure their spot in this game. Crystal Palace hasn’t been anything special this season, but they are away from the relegation zone, and that is all that matters.

Everton has lost only 1 of their last 4 games, and it was a tough loss considering they lost 2 of their players because of the red cards. With 36 points, Everton is now in 16th place, which is 2 points above the relegation zone. The good news for Everton is that Burnley has 2 tough games left to play, and that will certainly help Everton to stay in the league. Everton is struggling with scoring goals this season, they have scored only 39, while their defense hasn’t been the worst, but it was bad with 59 conceded goals. Richarlison has been carrying this team with 9 scored goals and 5 assists, while Gray added 5 goals. On paper, Everton is a fantastic team, they have a lot of talent, but they just couldn’t start playing well, not even after the coaching change.

Palace is now undefeated in their last 4 games, but they have nothing to play for here as they are far away from Europe, and the relegation zone. With 45 points, Crystal Palace is now in 13th place, they have scored a solid 47 goals, while their defense has been decent with 43 conceded goals in 36 games. After this game, Crystal Palace is hosting United at home, and I would say they are more worried about that game than this one. Crystal Palace will certainly want to end the season with a positive result at home, and seeing how United is playing badly right now, I think they might. Zaha is leading Palace with 13 goals, while Olise added 5 assists. There are a few injuries in Crystal Palace right now, but it doesn’t really matter. Crystal Palace has been hot and cold this season, but even that was enough for them to stay in the league.

At home, Everton hasn’t lost to Crystal Palace in their last 6 games, and they will need to keep it that way if they want to stay in the EPL. With a point here, I think Everton will secure their spot, and I think that will be the case.
