Defeating Arsenal in the previous round, Everton ended a series of poor matches lasting for 2 months. The next match The Toffees will have a trip to the holy place of Crystal Palace. Before an opponent who is also in very bad form recently, the opportunity for teachers and coach Rafael Benitez to win points is wide open.
Faced with Man Utd on the rise, Crystal Palace could not do it and had to embrace a 0-1 defeat. Thus, in the last 3 rounds in the English Premier League, “Eagle” lost all. Crystal Palace has not won the last 4 matches (draw 1, lose 3). After 15 matches played in the Premier League this season, the Selhurst Park home team only won 3, drew 7 and lost 5. With only 16 points brought back, coach Patrick Vieira’s teachers and students are currently in 14th place on the table.
Although they are 6 points ahead of the relegation group, Crystal Palace needs to quickly regain their form before falling into a dangerous area. At home this season Crystal Palace only received 1 defeat when welcoming Aston Villa. However, they also won only 2 in the series of matches mentioned above and drew 4 matches. The division of points too much makes this team not get a breakthrough in the rankings. A win in this match will help Crystal Palace overcome Everton on the table. Of course, with the current performance, it is difficult for “Eagle” to have full joy.
For Martin Odegaard on the Arsenal side to concede first, however, two goals later by Richarlison and Gray helped Everton have an emotional comeback. This is an extremely meaningful victory to help teachers and coach Rafael Benitez’s team end their previous series of 8 winless matches (draw 2, lose 6). Remember, since the victory against Norwich at the end of September, Everton have only once more enjoyed the joy. Besides, Everton have lost the last 3 away matches in the Premier League and they need a good result against Crystal Palace to revive their spirits.
Currently, The Toffees are in 13th place on the table after bringing back 18 points through 15 rounds. The goal of breaking into the group with tickets to the European Cup is considered bankrupt and Everton will aim for a position in the top half of the table when the tournament closes. Everton are unbeaten in the last 13 encounters with Crystal Palace (draw 7, won 6). In the last 7 times as a guest at Selhurst Park, Everton did not lose (draw 4, win 3). With the spirit up after the victory over Arsenal, at least Everton will have 1 point to leave Selhurst Park.
