Everton haven’t lost any of their previous 12 meetings with Crystal Palace.

Everton hoping to bounce back

The international break came at a good time for Everton following a run of three straight defeats, and the Toffees look ready to re-start their campaign with a bang against Crystal Palace on Monday.

Carlo Ancelotti will hope to have James Rodriguez back in the fold at Goodison Park and the Colombian’s ability to unlock defences could be key to Everton’s chances of success against Palace.

Everton have won only one of their last seven league assignments in the blue half Merseyside, though a promising head-to-head record against Crystal Palace suggests they can improve their dismal home record next week.

Test of Hodgson’s motivational skills

Crystal Palace eked out a 1-0 victory over West Brom before their players dispersed across the globe to join up with their national teams – a result that all but ensured they won’t be involved in the relegation shake-up in May.

However, the Eagles are now hovering in mid-table limbo with eight games left to contest, and with little to play for, Roy Hodgson could have a job on his hands keeping his players sharp and focussed.

Back Everton to prevail

Everton’s rotten form at Goodison Park is a real worry for Carlo Ancelotti, though the Toffees’ record against Palace is superb, and they are worth backing to find their footing at home at the Eagles’ expense on Monday.

The Blues were unbeaten in each of their last 12 encounters with Crystal Palace, and the last three skirmishes between the sides at Goodison Park resulted in wins for the hosts.

Hodgson’s side have won just twice in their last eight attempts on the road, though both victories were on the fortuitous side, after Newcastle and then Brighton mustered 21 and 25 attempts to Palace’s six and three respectively.

Everton have the quality in the final third to convert more of the chances they create, so stick with the Toffees for Monday’s fixture. Our 2-1 correct score prediction tips the Eagles – who have notched in three of their last four away games – to register another consolation.
