Crystal Palace will be hosting Everton in the third round of the FA Cup on Thursday evening in what will be the first game of the year for both clubs.
The Eagles have not had a joyous start to the season and enter the tie with just one win from their last nine games something that has got manager Roy Hodgson worried. Everton meanwhile have left it late in the last two seasons to secure top-flight safety and had looked rejuvenated after hearing the news of their points’ deduction for breaching transfer rules, but three defeats in their last three games does not bode well.
H2H / Stats
11/11/23: Crystal Place 2-3 Everton
22/4/23: Crystal Place 0-0 Everton
22/10/22: Everton 3-0 Crystal Place
19/5/22: Everton 3-2 Crystal Palace
20/3/22: Crystal Place 4-0 Everton
Odsonne Édouard was named in the squad following his recovery from injury last time out, but Cheick Doucouré (toe stitch), Jesurun Rak-Sakyi (hamstring) and Sam Johnstone (calf) are still undergoing treatment.
Abdoulaye Doucouré will again be unavailable on Thursday due to the thigh injury he picked up against Burnley before Christmas. Doucoure is joined on the visitors’ injury list by Dele Alli and Ashley Young, who are both suffering from muscle injuries.
Probable Line Up
Crystal Place XI: Henderson (GK), Clyne, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Lerma, Richards, Schlupp, Olise, Mateta, Ayew
Everton XI: Pickford (GK), Mykolenko, Branthwaite, Keane, Tarkowski, Garner, Onana, Doucouré, Harrison, McNeil, Calvert-Lewin
Both teams scored in each of the last five games involving Crystal Palace with the same being witnessed in three of the last four games of Everton. So we expect both teams to score in this tie.
