On May 15, Everton played home games against Brentford. Things looked good for Lampard’s side. Already on the 10th minute they opened the scoring. At one point, the Toffees led 2-1, but ultimately suffered a 2-3 defeat. As a result, they interrupted their three-match winning streak (2 wins and 1 draw).
The Liverpool side have still not guaranteed themselves a place in the elite next season. After 36 games, they have 36 points on their books – enough to ensure their 16th place. The gap from 18th-placed Burnley is only two points.
Having lost at home to Brentford in the last round, the Toffees ended their streak of 4 straight home games without a draw (3 wins and 1 draw). On the whole, they are performing quite well at home, with 8 wins, 2 draws and 8 defeats. 24 goals scored and 23 conceded.
Crystal Palace played host to Villa Park in the last round. The encounter with Aston Villa ended 1-1. Thus, the Londoners extended their unbeaten streak to 4 games (2 victories and 2 World Cup victories). As before, the team are situated in the middle of the standings, in 12th place. After 36 rounds, there are 45 points on the account. There is no threat of relegation for a long time, but the team is not fighting for survival either. Patrick Vieira’s charges are simply finishing the season playing at their own pace.
Palace’s away statistics, within the APL, are unimpressive. In 18 games, only 4 victories were recorded, with 7 worldwide outcomes and 7 defeats. There have been 21 goals scored and 26 conceded.
Everton and Crystal Palace have already played 2 head-to-head games this season – in the APL and the Cup. Both of them were held at Selhurst Park and ended in victories for the Londoners – 3-1 and 4-0 respectively.
Seven of the previous eight face-offs at Goodison Park (in the APL) have ended in a two-goal, two-goal tie.
The last time Everton lost at home to Crystal Palace was back in 2014.
Everton vs Crystal Palace. Outcome with cf. 1,90
I’m convinced that Everton have a stronger squad. And yet, Crystal Palace are having a much better season. The bookmaker is favouring the home side at the moment. They do need a win, but the visitors won’t give up three points for nothing. Firstly, they don’t have the burden of responsibility for the result. Secondly, they’ve been in very good form recently.
My prediction. The home team will be forced by their position in the standings to attack. The visitors will have an opportunity to play calmly on the counterattack.
My prediction is “both to score – yes”.
