After a brilliant win on Thursday night by Everton against Wolfsburg, we take on Crystal Palace at Goodison on Sunday. The Eagles have a lot to prove and defender Scott Dann has tipped this to be the Palace's first win of the year, against his boyhood club. So, we asked the questions to our counterparts to see what they make of the challenge on Merseyside this weekend.

After losing your manager Tony Pulis, What do you now make of your chance of staying in the Premier league this season?

We need a solid manager now to take us forward. We have a good balanced team that can hopefully keep us in the league again. It's disappointing the way we lost Pulis. I'm hoping to just stay in the league at the moment this year to be honest, that would be a great achievement.

Who are you looking to to help Palace win the important games and score the important goals?

Well we'll obviously be looking to the strikers for the goals, but I also think our captain Jedinak will be important to keep moral up and keep us moving in the midfield. The team have a creative streak and hopefully we can start to show it sooner rather than later.

Everton might be a tough test for you on Sunday after a solid victory over VFL Wolfsburg on Thursday night, what do you think the full time score will be?

I think the best we can hope for is a draw. But I believe the lads can travel to Goodison park and maybe come away with something. My head says 1-1 and my heart say 3-2 Everton.

I think the Palace fans at home are fantastic. The small corner of supporters in the stand behind the goal really give the place a European vibe and make the place bounce. What do you make of the Everton support, we pride ourselves on taking our full ticket allowance to all away games.

The Everton support has always been great and it does make a difference. Last season for example, the crowded lifted when you were going through a tough patch in the match and you got a goal off the back of it. The away support in particular is the best and vibrate as I've seen so far in the Premier league. The home support at Goodison is something I've not experienced first hand, but I'll be there on Sunday and will get back to you on that one!

Finally, good luck with the season, I personally would love to see you survive another season in the Premier league. Hopefully from our point of view you don't kick start your season this Sunday. I think the score will be 3-1 Everton. Where do you think Everton will finish this season?

Hopefully for us we start at Goodison, but its going to be very difficult. I reckon Everton will finish 5th again this season so good luck with that and the rest of your season.
