Everton – Toffees to seize safety at second time of asking?

Having already fluffed one opportunity to make mathematically certain of their top flight status for next season, Everton are at least afforded another. Beat mid-table Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on Thursday and Frank Lampard’s men can breathe easy going into the final day, knowing they are safe. Failing that, though, they will possibly end up needing a positive outcome away at top-four chasing Arsenal on Sunday.

The Toffees have tasted defeat twice against Patrick Viera’s team this term. Both, however, were at Selhurst Park. It has been a different story on Merseyside where Everton are unbeaten in six such meetings, winning three in a row prior to a 1-1 scoreline last season. They’ve also leaned heavily on home comforts this season, securing eight of their ten league wins in front of their raucous home support.

Key Stat: A 3-2 defeat last time out at home to Brentford marked a first league loss in four games (W2 D1) for Everton, which was their longest such streak since a four-game unbeaten run at the start of the season.

Crystal Palace – Viera’s Eagles won’t be lacking for motivation?

Aiming to spoil the survival celebrations on Merseyside are Crystal Palace. A four-game unbeaten spell (W2 D2) coming into this penultimate fixture of their maiden campaign under manager Patrick Viera, coupled with the incentive of becoming the first-ever Palace team to secure a Premier League top-half finish, not only keeps them honest going to Goodison Park but also makes them dangerous opponents.

Particularly as the Eagles already boast two wins from two competitive meetings in 2021/22 against Thursday’s opponents, scoring seven for the loss of one goal. Even last Sunday’s performance at Villa Park, scoring late to salvage a 1-1 draw, will leave them with a spring to their step. Moreover, Viera’s enterprising outfit have been obdurate travellers, losing just two of nine away league games in 2022 (W3 D4).

Key Stat: Crystal Palace have only sustained two defeats in their last eleven Premier League games (W5 D4 L2). However, both of these losses were away from home: 2-1 vs Leicester and 1-0 vs Newcastle.

Everton Vs Crystal Palace Betting Advice

Although the visit from mid-table opponents might seem a plum fixture with which to confirm your top-flight status for next season, Everton can afford to take nothing for granted against Patrick Viera’s Crystal Palace. The latter aren’t lacking for motivation either, with the club’s first-ever top-half finish in a Premier League campaign still very much plausible. The 10/11 about Palace Double Chance looks appealing.


Everton Vs Crystal Palace – Key Facts:

  • Having beaten Everton 3-0 in the league in December, Crystal Palace can complete their first ever league double over Everton, at what would be their 22nd attempt.
  • Four of the past five competitive meetings between the teams featured three or more goals. However, four of Everton’s last five home matches went Under 2.5 Goals, as did six of the last nine away from home for Crystal Palace.
  • All four Everton home league wins under Frank Lampard were ‘to nil’. However, Crystal Palace have only failed to score in two of their last nine away Premier League games.


To their credit, Everton are rallying well. Especially here at Goodison where they hold a record of W3 D1 L1 in their last five outings, which includes impressive victories over Chelsea and Man Utd. However, Palace – unbeaten in four having lost only two of their past eleven league fixtures – will feel they have the beating of their opponents after defeating the Toffees convincingly this season in the league (3-1) and cup (4-0).
