Crystal Palace face the long trip to Everton this weekend as they look to add further ground between them and the bottom three.

Palace currently lie in 14th place in the table, just three points above 18th placed Stoke City.

Roy Hodgson’s side have improved as of late, collecting eight points from their last five matches in the Premier League, which has brought confidence to the players and management at the club.

They are without a whole host of players who are sidelined with injuries at the moment, with as many as nine of the current first team unavailable for this weekend’s trip to Goodison Park.

Hodgson’s side have become more solid defensively in recent games and will provide a tough test for an inconsistent Everton side this weekend who have won just one of their last five league matches.

Here’s how we think Palace will line-up.
