Everton vs Crystal Palace: Live Gamethread

Revenge on the mind

Clive Brunskill

Last season Crystal Palace quite enjoyed themselves playing against Merseyside. After Everton's stuttering start to the season, Roberto Martinez and his boys have no leeway to drop more points against the London club.

While the Blues had a pretty serene summer, Palace were rocked by manager Tony Pulis' decision to leave the clubs barely days before the start of the Premier League season. In stepped Neil Warnock, who has had plenty of experience at different levels of the English game. The Eagles lost their first two games before drawing with fellow strugglers Newcastle United and newly-promoted Burnley.

Everton meanwhile are right in the middle of a stretch of five games in fifteen days (seven in twenty-three days actually), which they started off by beating West Brom and Wolfsburg. With that in mind, Martinez rang the changes with Coleman not in the squad after taking a knock to the head, and Sylvain Distin, Leon Osman, Christian Atsu and Samuel Eto'o all starting.

See below for starting lineups, and we'll be talking about the game in the comments below, so do stop by, and COYB!

Crystal Palace starting XI: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Bolasie, Campbell, Jedinak (c), McArthur, Delaney, Ledley, Kelly, Puncheon.
