Did you know?

Everton have only lost one of their last 14 Premier League matches against Crystal Palace (W6 D7), although that defeat did come in this season's reverse fixture. 

Everton’s Richarlison has been involved in seven goals in his last nine Premier League appearances (five goals, two assists). Overall, he’s had a hand in 14 Premier League goals this season (nine goals, five assists), only registering more in 2019/20 (13 goals, three assists).

Palace are looking to achieve a Premier League double over Everton for the first time.

Seven of Palace’s Premier League goals this season have been scored by substitutes, their highest ever such tally in a single campaign. Odsonne Edouard, Jeffrey Schlupp and Michael Olise have scored two each for the Eagles this term, with only Dwight Gayle in 2013/14 (four) ever netting more from the bench for them in a single Premier League campaign.
