Everton v Crystal Palace Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm, Wednesday 17th January 2024

 

Everton welcome Crystal Palace to Goodison Park on Wednesday evening in one of just two all-Premier League midweek FA Cup third round replays, the two sides having battled out a goal-less draw at Selhurst Park in the original tie earlier this month.

Neither Everton nor Crystal Palace could find the back of the net in their original FA Cup third round meeting early this month, the highlight of the game being the questionable red-carding of Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The Eagles failed to take advantage of their numerical superiority for the final fifteen minutes of the game but on the whole, Roy Hodgson’s men appear to have regained some resilience over the festive period on the back of some disappointing performances. Indeed, the Eagles have lost just one of their last five across competitions, this sole defeat coming in the 2-1 loss to Chelsea, while they have claimed points from the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion, Manchester City and Brentford during that time.

As for Everton, they seem to have fallen back into old attacking habits with no goals forthcoming in three back-to-back games. They have nevertheless won each of their last four FA Cup replays at this venue and should be more than equal to the challenge of the visitors on Wednesday evening.

Nevertheless, Crystal Palace have been enjoying a thirteen-day rest prior to this midweek affair and this will likely have done their shot-shy attackers some good. As such there is every possibility that both nets will be bulging on Wednesday evening but separating these sides in normal time is a near-impossible task. As such, we’ll be siding with the spoils being shared over the course of normal time.
