Everton win or draw

Crystal Palace have managed to reverse the negative trend and have made significant progress recently. Main credit goes to experienced Roy Hodgson, who has been in charge of the team’s last three games after Patrick Vieira’s resignation. The Englishman improved the tactical scheme on the pitch and in a short time achieved an impressive result.

Under Hodgson’s leadership, the Eagles became much more reliable defensively and more inventive in the last third of the field. Thanks to this, they alternately defeated Leicester (2: 1), Leeds (5: 1) and Southampton (2: 0).

Everton share 17th position in the table with Nottingham with 7 matchdays before the end of the season. It was only thanks to the advantage over the “foresters” in additional indicators that he managed to avoid the relegation zone.

In the last 5 games “toffees” are not the best, in each of them they lost to opponents xg, and they managed to get points only thanks to a favorable coincidence.

In the upcoming meeting, key defensive midfielder Onana and main defender Coleman will not help the club. In addition, Ducuré, who got in shape, was disqualified (2+2).

Everton’s poor performance in recent years is primarily due to the relatively high level of their rivals. In the next match, despite defeats in the “taffy” composition, it will be easier to resist the “Crystal Palace”. In addition, their tournament motivation is much greater, and Calvert-Lewin, who has recovered from the injury, is able to independently decide the outcome of the meeting.
