Crystal Palace and Everton face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Selhurst Park Stadium. When these two teams faced off in April the two teams played to a 1-1 draw.
Crystal Palace currently sits in 14th place in the standings having picked up 16 points. Crystal Palace has lost two games in a row and each of those losses were by a final score of 1-0. In that last game against Manchester United, the defense didn’t look all that bad but it was the one goal in the 77th minute that was the difference as they were defeated. Conor Gallagher has been the top player for Crystal Palace scoring four goals and adding another three assists. Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke have also both scored four goals.
On the other side of this matchup is Everton who sits in 13th place in the standings having picked up 18 points. Everton’s last game was against Arsenal and they were able to come away with the 2-1 victory. It was Demarai Gray that scored a goal in the 92nd minute and led the team to the victory. Everton has scored 19 goals total while their defense has given up 25 goals. Gray has been the top player for Everton scoring five goals and adding two assists. Andros Townsend and Richardson have also been strong scoring three goals and adding two assists. In this game Everton needs to be the team that gets out to a fast start.
The last time these two teams faced off there were only two goals scored, and I expect this game will be lower scoring, Crystal Palace’s offense has had issues getting going, and it’s not going to magically break out in this game. Back the under to cash.
