Everton will lock horns with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this Saturday afternoon as they focus on securing a result on their travels in the Premier League. The Toffees had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Brighton and Hove Albion recently, so they would be eager to put in a solid performance away from home this weekend.
Sean Dyche will set his men up in a 4-4-1-1 formation and is expected make one change to his first XI for this clash. Amadou Onana will get an opportunity to impress from the start of this contest while Idrissa Gueye makes way for him and drops to the bench.
4-4-1-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace
Jordan Pickford will function in between the sticks for the Toffees after shipping in one goal in his last league outing. James Tarkowski will resume his defensive partnership with Jarrad Branthwaite at the centre of Dyche’s defence as they try to keep the home team at bay during the game.
Ashley Young will once again fill in as the right-back while Vitaliy Mykolenko looks to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Dyche will ask both of them to perform their defensive duties well this Saturday.
Nathan Patterson and Ben Godfrey will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Amadou Onana will try to impress alongside James Garner at the centre of Everton’s midfield. They will both have to retain possession well if Everton are to cause problems for the opposition on the counter.
Dwight McNeil could get another chance to catch the eye on the left flank while Jack Harrison tries to put his pace to good use as the right-sided wide player.
Abdoulaye Doucoure will get the freedom to express himself as an attacking midfielder in the opponent’s half.
Idrissa Gueye will have to be content with a place on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if required.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will lead the charge for the Merseyside club in the final third. He has to find a way to cause some headaches for the Palace defenders this weekend.
Beto will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if needed.
