Everton will entertain Crystal Palace at Goodison Park this Saturday afternoon as they look to earn all three points in front of their home fans. The Toffees suffered a lackluster 1-0 defeat away at Newcastle United in midweek which will drain their confidence even further going into this clash.

Frank Lampard will probably set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make one change to his first team for this game. Neal Maupay is likely to play from the start while Dominic Calvert-Lewin drops to the bench.

4-3-3 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace

Defence

Jordan Pickford will function in goal for the Toffees after shipping in one goal in his last league outing. Conor Coady will once again play alongside James Tarkowski at the centre of Lampard’s defence as they focus on stopping the Eagles from scoring this weekend.

Seamus Coleman could keep his spot at right-back while Vitaliy Mykolenko hopes to catch on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them could get the license to get forward but would also have to ensure that they keep a good defensive shape at the back.

Mason Holgate and Michael Keane will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench. However, Ben Godfrey and Nathan Patterson will be sidelined for this match because of injuries.

Midfield

Alex Iwobi, Idrissa Gueye and Amadou Onana will anchor the midfield for the Toffees as they try to make life difficult for Crystal Palace at the centre of the park.

Gueye and Onana would both have to protect their backline well if Everton are to have a chance to secure maximum points from this game.

Tom Davies and James Garner will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if required. However, Andros Townsend won’t be ready in time for this clash as he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Attack

Demarai Gray will get another shot to impress as the left-sided wide player while Anthony Gordon looks to give a good account of himself on the right flank.

Neal Maupay will probably get a chance to lead the line for the Toffees up top after he was rested in midweek.

As mentioned earlier, Dominic Calvert-Lewin will drop to the bench as he waits for his opportunity to catch the eye as a late-game substitute if Lampard decides to call upon his services.
