THE TEAM NEWS

CRYSTAL PALACE

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Guaita; Ward, Dann, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, McArthur, Meyer; Townsend, Benteke, Zaha

Unavailable: Tomkins (Injured)

Doubtful: Zaha (Personal reasons)

  • It is has been a difficult summer for Crystal Palace in the transfer market and their focus will once again be on survival primarily.
  • The loss of Wan-Bissaka is a blow but they have reliable players that can fill in for him although they are without the injured Tomkins.
  • Further forward, they are likely to rely on Christian Benteke to lead the attack and they will desperately hope he can rekindle old form.

EVERTON

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne; Andre Gomes, Schneiderlin; Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Richarlison

Unavailable: Delph (Injured)

Doubtful: Baines (Injured), Gbamin (Rested)

  • Everton will be hoping to start the season how they finished the last as this is a big campaign for the club and boss Marco Silva.
  • Of the new signings, Delph is the most likely to earn an immediate starting spot in midfield alongside Andre Gomes who joined permanently.
  • Yerry Mina will play alongside Michael Keane in central defence but this team otherwise has a familiar look about it from last season.

THE PREDICTION

Everton ended last season in fine form with their attack playing well but their defence showing major improvement. They will look for that to continue but they are missing a couple of key players from last year, and this could very well be a lively opener with goals at both ends of the pitch.
