Everton FC v Crystal Palace
Goodison Park
Wednesday 12th February 19:45
Premier League Match 26

Everton's last 5 domestic results:

West Brom 1-1 Everton (Mirallas)
Stevenage 0-4 Everton - FA Cup (Naismith x2, Heitinga, Gueye)
Liverpool 4-0 Everton
Everton 2-1 Aston Villa (Naismith, Mirallas)
Tottenham 1-0 Everton

Crystal Palace's last 5 domestic results:

Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke (Puncheon)
Wigan 2-1 Crystal Palace - FA Cup (Wilbraham)
Crystal Palace 1-0 Hull (Puncheon)
Arsenal 2-0 Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace 3-1 West Brom (Ince, Ledley, Chamakh Pen)

Everton

Everton slipped 5 points below 4th Place at the weekend in 6th place after a harsh defeat at White Hart Lane. Emmanuel Adebayor latched onto a momentary lapse from Everton's defence to seal the only goal of the game despite Everton having the better of the game. It was another game that went by without a clean sheet making it 4 games in a row without keeping the opposition out. Only Stoke (9), CArdiff (9), Aston Villa (5) and Aston Villa (5) are on a worse run.

Only 4 teams have fallen behind on fewer occasions than Everton this season but only Chelsea have gained more points from those teams. The team Everton play at the weekend are amongst the worst in the league having gained just one point from 16 losing positions. Crystal Palace's single point came in a 1-1 home draw to Norwich. Everton came from behind to beat West Ham 3-2 Away from home and Aston Villa 2-1 in their last match at Goodison Park. Everton took a point from Norwich away, Arsenal away, Stoke away and and Liverpool at home after being in losing positions.

Possible Line Ups

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace picked up their 3rd home win in a row at the weekend as they outplayed West Brom in a 3-1 victory. New signings Thomas Ince and Joe Ledley got on the score-sheet whilst Scott Dann put in a good performance at the back. Those 3 home wins coincide with 3 straight defeats on the road with defeats to Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal despite positive displays. Crystal palace sit joint bottom of the away table having picked up 6 points from a possible 36 away from home. They're the only side without a draw in the league on the road.

Crystal Palace have been excellent under Tony Pulis who officially took charge of his first game on 30 November with Crystal Palace sitting joint bottom of the table with just 7 points. However, since his appointment Crystal Palace have accumulated more points than any other team in the Premier League having taken 16 points from a possible 21 at home in the league making Selhurst Park somewhat of a fortress. Despite popular belief, Pulis is yet to implement the sort of football that was criticised heavily at Stoke City.

Stats & Injuries

(http://i.imgur.com/WXNOXT3.png)

Everton will be without long term injuries Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone and Bryan Oviedo. Antolin Alcaraz isn't due back until the weekend whilst Romelu Lukaku still has a couple of weeks to go. Joel Ward and Cameron Jerome are the only doubts for Crystal Palace but both should be fit.

Refuse to give up on 4th yet but this is vital, think Traore is our last throw of the dice, if he hits the ground running we could still feature.

Post by: Dvm23 on February 11, 2014, 04:32:37 PM
i think 4th is still possible because there will be plenty more twists before the end of the season but 3pts is a must from this. As much as Liverpool have looked good against us & Arsenal they still strike me as a team that will still drop points. We need to keep pressure on them to do so & take advantage. A lot of our players coming back from injury will be fresh for the run in & that could be a big factor

Post by: Ross on February 11, 2014, 04:48:02 PM
We need a start to the game that we've not seen since Newcastle, right at them with as much pace up top as possible. Get the crowd up for it early on and get a goal then they've got to make a game of it. Our problems of late have stemmed from not getting the first goal when we are on top and it leads to a few nerves creeping in obviously, get over that hurdle and we should be on for a relatively easy night and a comfortable win.

The one concern is Palace are likely to use the same sort of tactics that did for us at Anfield, sit deep, by pass midfield and look to use the pace of Ince, Puncheon and Chamakh. Although their no way as lethal its still something we need to be ready for.

There's "possible" and then there's "plausible."

I think this fixture could be much tougher than expected.  That said, we've been a high character team all season, and I've no doubt we will show up and give it our best.

This and the lack of sustained pressure on the opponent's goal when we're on top in a game have been my biggest gripes with the season to date.

Their recent home form has been very good with 5W 2D 1L, their recent away from home less so 1W 4L but defeats to Arsenal, Spurs, City and Chelsea is no suprise and non of those teams have put more than 2 past them, plus they managed an away win against Villa so this should be a tough game but you'd have to back us at home.

Post by: Jimmywhack on February 11, 2014, 07:22:27 PM
Id be dissappointed if we dont win, not surprised tho. They will sit back all game and as has been said try to use their pace on the break. Confidence for them will be sky high.

First goals gonna be crucial
Title: Re: Everton v Crystal Palace
Post by: GLewis on February 11, 2014, 07:31:32 PM
I'll take any sort of win (as I will again vs Swansea on Saturday) but at some point we're going to have to start playing well again.

You don't have to play well to win but in doing so you're more likely to give yourself some breathing space either for conceding goals in that game or the ability to ease off/bring players back in etc.

As it is games are very tight (well, apart from the obvious...) against everyone that we're playing at the moment.

lol.

I'm not entirely surprised. They're turning things around and have the feel good boost from bringing in a bunch of new signings. If they go ahead with their first shot on goal like others, it could be a long 90 mins.

We on the other hand need a performance. Something to lift people and make them believe we could go on a run until the end of the season. Right now it's all very stop start and with Palace then Chelsea it has the potential to bring more of the same. We need Barkley back at his best, along with Deulofeu and either Traore or Lukaku up top. We need a game where we hit them early and ideally get 2 or 3 without conceding. All these games of late we play on a knife edge because we can't reliably find ways to score and it does nothing for our confidence.

If Traore or Lukaku come in and start getting goals, I think the whole mood could shift the same as it did when Lukaku came on at West Ham. All of a sudden there was a sharpness to our attacking play, a positivity of getting into the box rather than dancing around it. I don't think many are confident in how we are lining up at the moment though.

Saw the highlights of their game against West Brom. The Baggies missed chance after chance after chance. Palace were pretty fortunate to win so comfortably. Really think we should win and win quite comfortably.

We were playing pretty well but Osman and Pienaar going off and the switch to 3 at the back made the last 30 mins uncofortable viewing.

It's part of the reason why I was disappointed that it happened as it looked like we were on for a 3,4,5-0 result.

As it was it was a nervy 2-0 and it does seem like ages since we played well.

We did ok like for a team with 10men. Sunderland didnt even try and score though once they had gone 1-0 up. I've decided that possesion stats aren't as good as scoring more than the opposition

Our good performances this season were all between West Ham away 2nd half and the Arsenal game. Since then we've not really impressed.

Really hoping we get a second wind once Lukaku is back and Traore, Barkley and Deulofeu are back upto speed

Could be frustrating but we should go all out from the offset. Would like to see deulefeu start to go at them. I think the evening atmosphere will help us as well.

As SS says it was ok for 10 men.

My issue in that game was that the 3 closest attempts to equalise were Oviedo's long range shot; Barkley's free kick and a header from a corner.

Apart from the free kick save and the header from the corner there was little to no sustained pressure on their goal.

This will be one of the things that will improve with understanding of RM's approach I'm sure but it the build up of pressure does need working on.
Title: Re: Everton v Crystal Palace
Post by: Jimmywhack on February 12, 2014, 02:09:07 PM
We need a performance tonight from a forward, whether its Naismith being clinical, Mirallas dancing passed players and drilling a few in or sommet alike. We cant just pass in front of them for 80 mins and hope that eventually we will break them down. Lets gets them turned and play in behind them and fill the box a bit more

Once again, we had trouble breaking down a team that got men behind the ball and weren't interested in playing. Can be forgiven though, as we did only have 10 men. Marrone got Mom if I remember correctly.

If we concede first again though , they'll just sit and kill the space in behind . Much better teams than us have had trouble breaking down teams that park the bus. Likewise, most teams are dangerous if the opposition allows them time on the ball and space in behind.

Barkley is clearly not right at the moment, would rather we rest him until he is better, just hope we have enough in us to beat Swansea in the cup without him, would be great to go into a quarter final with players back, and upto fitness

As for tonight, I'll take the scrappiest 1-0 win going if needs be

reminds of arriving in Coventry train station in about 1986 when the game had been called off an hour before kick off due to "snow on the streets" even though Coventry had under-soil heating and the terraces had been swept leaving the ground in tip-top condition

it wasn't the club's decision....and if the game tonight gets called off, it won't have been Everton's either

I think Traore was on the bench to experience the atmosphere of the Prem? But that's only what I thought at the time, that maybe Martinez had in mind? It's something imo he would do. Imagine Moyes doing that.

Manchester City P-P Sunderland
BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan at Etihad Stadium: "I've just spoken to Manchester City's director of communications Vicky Kloss and she says that the game was called off by the police for safety reasons. Although the game could have gone ahead from a playing perspective, programme booths have been blowing over and a nearby wall has blown down so safety of fans cannot be guaranteed.

"There is no word on when the game will be re-arranged for, but having just travelled across Manchester, it seems like a good decision to postpone the game."


Probably a similar situation to ours then. As you say it was harsh for it was left so late though. Seeing as we got as far as announcing the line up we seemingly were happy for it to go ahead.

Once the Man City games was called off though, I think it may have caused a ripple effect on the decision making process for us as if someone had got injured it would have looked like negligence to let the game go ahead.

Yeah, when you consider the distance the away fans in both Palace and Sunderland's case had travelled. You'd think they could have got a fairly accurate weather situation about 3pm? It's the right decision from a safety point of view but ironically the message is not to travel in the area, yet there are 30-40k fans all out in this weather because the decision wasn't made earlier.

After seeing the team,i'm pretty relieved that the game is called off.Tbhb it's hard to see where the goals were coming from.Should have a much stronger line up for the rearanged game.

It would've been a twat of a game. Especially with these new balls.

Went to get in the car at 6.30 and the wind was insane. Had to stop three times on my estate to move things out the road. Got on the main road and the traffic was at a standstill. Turned back round and went back. Pretty sure it would get called off.

Got to chows chippy and on the way there, there wee roof slates and tiles coming off,  a few windows had blown in, got within 200 yards before being told you couldn't go any further (by the bookies at the Gladys street).
Had a very luck escape on queens drive going back to the car, a gust blew a tree in to a lamppost and the whole light fitting fell to the ground only  foot away from me... Shit myself

How would him getting behind the scenes at Everton have come about then? Would someone working there shot downstairs and had a word?

Who is the bloke with Martinez in the pic and why is everyone dead pleased about it?

Blessing in disguise the game was called off imo. Id still of expected us to win but it wouldn't have been pretty and by the time it's rearranged we should have Gerard, Lacina and Rom all back in the action up front.

He was in a lounge anyway and tweeted a pic of his ticket, which showed he was in the joe mercer suite. I'm made up for the lad.

He's up to 5,327. When I started following he had just under 3,000. I think It's a real nice touch. He must be made up.

I'm not blaming the club as they were taking advice from the Police but for fuck sake if the forecast is for 40 mile an hour winds gusting to 70 then surely you can expect some structural damage to buildings.

I only travel from Manc land so it was a pain in the arse for me but those poor cunts who traveled from London & Sunderland mist be gutted.

I know it's easy to be wise after the event but at 12pm today I posted on here wondering if the game would be called off due to the high winds that were forecast for kick off time. I can't fucking believe the Police didn't call it off earlier as it was clear there was going to be dangerous winds later in the day.

Anyway, I've had my little moan now, I actually think it may have done us a favour as I thought the conditions would have been a great leveler, shame the other results didn't go our way. It also gives us a bit longer to get some proper strikers fit.

 According to this 'questionable' link,

Deulofeu joined Everton last summer on a one-year loan deal and has impressed under the guidance of Spanish boss Roberto Martinez. However, injury has stalled his start to 2014, seeing him miss the whole of January and that has led Barcelona to re-think his availability for next season, prompting them to allow Everton the option to keep Deulofeu for another year.

Italian side AC Milan are also interested and although that move would offer the young Spaniard possible European football next season, Barca are keen to keep Deulofeu under the management of Martinez.

Talks about the deal will commence at the end of the season with Barca also keen to discuss the possibility of Isaac Cuenca to follow Deulofeu on loan.

Cuenca has fallen out of favour under Barca coach Tata Martino and has previously been out on loan to Ajax.
