Crystal Palace v Everton FC

Everton 3-2 Newcastle (Lukaku x2, Barkley)
Manchester City 3-1 Everton (Lukaku)
Everton 2-1 Hull (Mirallas, Pienaar)

Crystal Palace's last 5 domestic matches 2013/2014:

Southampton 2-0 Crystal Palace
Liverpool 3-1 Crystal Palace (Gayle)
Crystal Palace 1-4 Fulham (Mariappa)
Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal
West Brom 2-0 Crystal Palace




Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace's 2-0 defeat away to West Brom on Saturday increased their run of Premier League defeats to 7 and a total of 9 defeats in 10 games which leaves them rooted to the bottom of the table. With the lowest goal tally in the league (6) and the second highest concession of goals (21) then it's easy to see why they're in such a predicament. However, hope is not all lost as history goes to show that poor starts don't necessarily mean relegation is a fact.


As you can see, there have been four instances in which teams who have accumulated 4 points or less after ten games and have still managed to stay up. Southampton have managed to do it on two occasions whilst Blackburn also achieved this feat having picked up 4 points after ten games. The only side to do it with 3 points at this stage, like Crystal Palace now are Everton who replaced Mike Walker with Joe Royle 19 years ago this weekend. Perhaps a good omen for Palace considering they're due to appoint a new manager soon.



Potential Line Ups





Everton

The Tottenham game was a bit of a damp squib at the weekend with a lacklustre first half and an improved second half with any real chances created by either side being a true description of the drab 0-0. The outcome of the Crystal Palace match will determine whether this will be seen as a good point or 2 points dropped as we head into the international break. The lack of chances in the Spurs match shouldn't have been much surprise as both sides prefer to have a lot of the ball before carving out chances.


Roberto Martinez's new style of play stands up against the other quick starters in the league this season. Having just nudged ahead of Southampton and Manchester United's average possession stats, Everton follow only Manchester City and Tottenham from the top 8 teams in the league. Considering Brendan Rodgers has a reputation for possession football, it may be surprising to see Liverpool a distance behind the rest.




Match stats and Injuries



Crystal Palace have 5 injury concerns ahead of this match with Jack Hunt out with a broken ankle, Johnny Williams out with a foot injury and Glenn Murray out with an ACL knee injury. It's likely to be too early for club captain Paddy McCarthy to return from a groin injury whilst Guedioura is likely to be missing with a rib injury.

Similarly, Everton have 5 doubts for this match. Darron Gibson is out with an ACL knee injury and Antolin Alcaraz will not be fit until after the international break. Arouna Kone has a knee problem and Apostolos Vellios also has a knock. Romelu Lukaku will be a concern following his collision with Hugo Lloris which forced him off with a knee injury.

That is an awful group of players they've got there. Going down for sure.

Might be tough if they appoint a new manager soon but as long as we can break them down I fancy us to win.

1-3 for us I reckon.

This could be the one that we majorly fuck up in and get beat or totally destroy them, we always seem to be the team that teams like this break their duck on, same as we always seem to be the ones to end winning streaks.
We should batter them and after the first half performance of the spurs game they're gonna come out all guns blazing with the hope of scoring early and parking the bus .

Hope Bob Martins has his thinking head on,
It's the roll I way

Reckon Martinez will use his squad for this one.......Deluofeu, Jella and possibly Naismith will start and Lukaku, Mirallas and either Barkley or Osman on the bench......just my opinion.

I think Mirallas and Osman will drop to the bench for Deulafeu and Barkley. To drop Lukaku against these would be madness. He drew his first blank in five against Spurs- any striker would have struggled to score yesterday given the service they got.

I'm with Silas on this one. Not confident at all and think a score draw is on the cards.

If they have a new manager we can kiss the win goodbye.

Fucking hate playing teams with new managers.

Nah, we'll win this. They just don't have the players to have the 'new manager bounce' effect. It'll be more of a 'crushing reality for the new manager' effect, imo.

I hope this will be one where we can see Jela, Lukaku banging them in.

Can see it ended up as a grinded out 1-0 win though

Be very surprised if we do anything other than start our strongest 11. Can we afford not to in the Premier League?
