Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace registered four wins in four under Alan Pardew at the weekend with an impressive 3-2 victory away to Southampton in the FA Cup. Their last Premier League match also ended in a 3-2 victory as the Eagles came from 2-0 down away to Burnley to take home all the spoils. Crystal Palace have gained the same amount of points as Everton this season and are only lower in the table on goal difference so a home victory would take them above their opponents. Crystal Palace have come from behind to win in both of their Premier League matches under Pardew after failing to win any match they went behind under the stewardship of Tony Pulis.


Crystal Palace have conceded on average 1.50 goals in premier league home matches this season which is the worst in the league, though they've played one less match than most other teams. Crystal Palace conceded in their last match at Selhurst Park against Tottenham to extend a run of home fixtures without a clean sheet to 7 matches, the longest streak in the Premier League. The Eagles have kept the joint lowest amount of clean sheets (2) in the Premier League this season alongside Stoke City, Leicester City and Sunderland.

Possible Line ups




Everton

Everton have failed to find a win in any of their last 8 matches in all competitions and by the time this match is played, it will have been 47 days since Everton last tasted victory, a 3-1 home win against Queens Park Rangers. Everton kept their first clean sheet in 11 matches as a result of the 0-0 home draw against West Brom in their last Premier League fixture but they've not kept a clean sheet on the road since the reverse fixture against West Brom which came on the 13th September in a 2-0 victory. Everton have lost 5 away matches in a row in the Premier League going into this match and have lost their last two meetings against Crystal Palace 3-2.


Everton's 4m summer signing Muhamed Besic has played more than expected this season due to the injury problems of James McCarthy and he's wasted no time in becoming a cult figure to the Everton supporters. The Bosnian international has a success rate of 69% (25/36) taking on opposition players which is the highest percentage of any player in the squad (With more than 10 take ons). Besic's passing success of 88% is only beaten by Ross Barkley and Phil Jagielka (89%) in the Everton squad but no player has committed more fouls (Per90) in the Everton squad than Besic this season.

It was massive back in the day. Only second to the Anglo-Italian Cup.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Wouldn't be too disappointed with a draw in this one

A booking for Gareth Barry and he misses the Derby
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Which would mean Besic and McCarthy in midfield.

Every cloud....


Joking aside, I dunno how I'd feel should he get a ban, do we want him in the team for the derby or do we go for the two above...?

That was another cup we never won. Will never forget the final against Forest though, we went down 4-3 but it was a great game. Southall not at his best in that one from what I remember.

Give me a Besic/McCarthy midfield for the Derby, and I may have to predict a win, even if it costs me the Prediction League crown.
