The 1-0 away defeat to Tottenham would certainly be a tough to take for Everton. The match looked destined for 0-0 until their defense switched off on a quickly taken free kick from Kyle Walker to Emmanuel Adebayor. Just like that and the match was gone.
Prior to this loss Everton had played the previous six Premier League matches with just one loss. That one loss was also the only other match in which they failed to score in that time.
In their last 21 home Premier League matches they have just one loss while in six out of their last seven they have scored at least two goals.
Prior to this weekend Crystal Palace had scored more than one goal in just two previous Premier League matches this season. They had failed to score in four out of their last nine Premier League matches.
In their last six away matches in the Premier League Crystal Palace they managed just one win and have only two away wins all season on the road and not a single draw. In addition, both wins were by the score of 1-0.
My pick is a low scoring Everton win. Palace has set themselves up as a team that is hard to beat and Everton have had some struggles in breaking down some defensive teams this season, with their home loss coming against a difficult Sunderland team.
Crystal Palace could get a much needed result out of this, even a win, if they are able to get their tactics right.

Everton win: 1.44; Draw: 4.33; Palace win: 7.50
Form: Everton (D, W, D, L, W, L) Palace (D, L, W, W, L, W)
Prediction: Everton 1 – 0 Crystal Palace
