2023-24 Premier League: Week 12 – Crystal Palace vs Everton

Crystal Palace host Everton at Selhurst Park as both teams seek to boost their Premier League ambitions.

Victory would see Palace climb as high as eighth with a win should Manchester United lose elsewhere, whilst Everton can climb to 12th with a win if Wolves lose in the lunchtime kick-off.

Stat Attack

  • Crystal Palace have won one of their last five league meetings against Everton (W1, D2, L2).
  • Everton have won just one of their last six visits to Crystal Palace (W1, D4, L1).
  • Palace have never had a player red carded in 28 previous meetings against Everton.
  • Marc Guehi has made more blocks this season than any other Palace player, with 12 blocks in 10 league appearances.
  • Nine of Everton’s 11 goals this season have been scored from inside of the box.



Having produced an effective clinical away win at Burnley last weekend, Palace now should look to build upon that result with another resilient peformance especially in terms of playing out from the back if want back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.

Everton meanwhile have found their groove recently with one loss in their last five games in all competitions, but should be frustrated to have drawn against Brighton last weekend after their end product desserted them after taking an early lead and then conceded a late own-goal.

On that note, I do expect Sean Dyche’s Toffees to bounce back here if they play like they did last weekend but only with better finishing, which should give Palace some thought in a game which should be competitive but close.

Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Everton

Result: Crystal Palace 2-3 Everton
