Everton welcome Crystal Palace to Goodison Park this evening looking to move closer to the Premier League’s top four.
The hosts can move to 49 points with a win, level with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur and two points behind fourth-place Chelsea with a game in hand.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side have struggled at home this season, however, and have picked up just 17 points from 42 at Goodison Park.
Roy Hodgson has said his Crystal Palace side will play with “less pressure” after all-but securing their Premier League status for another season, and will be looking to make a push for the top half of the table.
