Crystal Palace find themselves rooted to the bottom of the league ahead of Everton’s visit to Selhurst Park on Saturday.
The Eagles have firmly established themselves as early-season favourites for relegation, and with a point-total of four, they are six points adrift of the safety.
Following their shock 2-1 home win over Chelsea, the Eagles have picked up just one point in their last three games. In their last fixture, they lost 1-0 at Tottenham.
Everton have been equally terrible this season, but a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Watford in the last game must have boosted the confidence in the camp. That win ended a run of five straight defeats for the Toffees and propelled them to the 15th spot on the table. Toffees’ away form doesn’t bode well for their chances as they are yet to claim a win on the road on this season.
This game is a decent opportunity for both sides to earn much-needed points, and we expect an exciting battle in South London on Saturday.
Last season, the corresponding game ended in a 1-0 win for the Toffees, but Palace managed to come out with a 1-1 draw from Goodison Park.
