Everton avoids drop zone

Everton avoids drop zone

Everton is meeting with Crystal Palace with hopes of improving their place in the league table, as they are just above the drop zone. They are currently sitting at the 17th of the league table, which is not a safe zone for them. Additionally, Everton is with the same points with the team at the 18th, which is why they cannot afford to lose here. Crystal Palace on the other hand is in a safer place in the league table at the 12th. Considering their place in the league table, they are a team who is likely to enter the next round. However, they are still not complacent as the Place still wants better chances in the playoffs. This meeting will be on April 22, 2023, at 10:00 PM (GMT+8), with the Palace as hosts.

Despite their bad record this season, it is actually the visitors who has a good record against the hosts. From the 57 matches these two teams played, the visitors have won 24, while the hosts only have 15 wins. Additionally, the visitors also won during their reverse fixture with a score of 3-0. The hosts on the other hand are not doing well against the visitors as they only have one win from their last 16 games in the league. However, when it comes to playing at home against the visitors, they won in their last two home games. Now that they are playing at home here, the hosts has the confidence they can win in this game.

Everton failed to be at their best this season, which puts them just above the relegation zone. They are at the 17th of the league table with 27 points, and with the same points with the team at the 27th. With that, they are aiming for a win in this match, so they could at least be at the 16th with 30 points. However, they are coming from a disappointing 3-1 loss against Fulham. This loss is just unfortunate for them since they are in-need of wins, or they will continue to be at the drop zone. Everton is now looking to bounce back in this important match so they could avoid early elimination this season. They need to improve their form starting in this match as they are dangerously close from the drop zone. However, that one thing Everton needs to improve is their form as they have a poor form this season, resulting to losses.

Andros Townsend remains to be unavailable in this match, as he is still recovering from his knee injury. He will join Seamus Coleman, Ruben Vinagre, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the sidelines. Abdoulaye Doucoure on the other hand is also unavailable, as he will serve his final suspension.

The Palace on the other hand is sitting at the 12th of the league table with 36 points across their names. A win in this match could make them go at the 11th with an additional three points. However, the Palace have been inconsistent this season, which is why they are sitting at the mid-table. They are fortunate though that they were able to win during their meeting against Southampton. That match ended in a 2-0 win for the Palace, and are now looking for the same result in this match. Luckily for the Palace, they are a team who has a very talented squad. Eberechi Eze is expected to lead his squad, and will be looking to leave a mark through this game.

Wilfried Zaha, who is one of the player who leads the Palace is unavailable in this game due to a groin injury. He will join Vicente Guaita, and Nathan Ferguson on the sidelines, who are both unavailable in this game as well.
