Predicted Crystal Palace line-up to face Everton in the Premier League

Crystal Palace were well beaten by newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers in the league last time out. The Eagles succumbed to a 1-0 loss and will be aiming to make amends when they come up against Everton this weekend.

The Toffees are on the back of a superb win against Leicester City and looked renewed under new manager Marco Silva. Roy Hodgson has done a good job at Selhurst Park so far but the manager now needs to pick up a positive set of results, starting with the game at Goodison Park.

Team News

Apart from the long-term absentees, Wilfried Zaha is also a doubt for this game after suffering a knock. Hodgson has no other immediate concerns apart from their top scorer this season, but it could be worrying given that the Eagles are extremely poor on the field in the Ivorian’s absence.

Probable Crystal Palace XI

Manager: Roy Hodgson

Formation: 4-4-1-1

Wayne Hennessey (GK)

Hennessey has done a brilliant job at the back for the Eagles this season. He should retain his place for this game as well.

Wan-Bissaka (RB)

The Palace youngster has been a standout performer for the club so far. He is flourishing under Roy Hodgson.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

James Tomkins (CB)

Hodgson will be glad to have Tomkins back after an injury, with the defender proving to be a vital member of this squad.

Mamadou Sakho (CB)

Sakho is excellent when partnered next to Tomkins and poor when not. He should start in central defence once again.

Van Aanholt (LB)

His pace and ability to surge up the field make the Dutchman a massive asset to this side.

Andros Townsend (RM)

He hasn’t played to his best ability yet and needs to show more consistency in the final third.

Luka Milivojevic (RCM)

The Serbian has done well with his passing and distribution, but he hasn’t been able to find the back of the net like last season.

Luka Milivojevic

James McArthur (LCM)

He has been defensively very fruitful for the Eagles but he needs to be more careful with his tackles.

Jeffrey Schlupp (LM)

Schlupp has thrived after making his way back into the starting eleven this season.

Max Meyer (CAM)

Meyer should start in place of Wilfried Zaha for this game. He should sit behind the striker and dictate the play.

Jordan Ayew (ST)

The Eagles’ new signing should start up front after impressing in the last outing against the Wolves.
