Everton vs. Crystal Palace Prediction and Match Analysis

With the rest of the league on winter break, Everton will be playing host to side Crystal Palace at the Goodison Park in a captivating weekend fixture. The match is scheduled for 8th December with kickoff at 15:30 GMT.

Theo Walcott was the savior during the last outing for Everton against Watford with a late strike securing the side’s 9th spot in the league. The side under Carlo Ancelotti has recorded a mixture of results with the side only registering two wins in their past five matches.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, is 14th in league with 30 points. A win at Goodison Park will see the side climb to the same spot as the host. However, Roy Hodgson has been on a losing form while failing to secure a win in their past five matches.

With both sides still trying to find their form in the league, will Carlo Ancelotti add to the disappointments to Hodgson’s side?
