Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Two games to go, last home game of the season. A win today ends weeks of doubt and confirms that Everton will stay in the Premier League. A draw or a loss will prolong those concerns for a further few days.

Here’s the lineup we think Lampard is going to go with tonight. [RBM]
“I am sure the supporters will be coming with everything, maybe even a bit more than they have in the past few weeks. We really appreciate that and it is such a big push for us... and we will try to make it a special night at Goodison.
“Historically, it could be a big night for us, because we know the situation. The players have to turn up and play with the same passion and fight as every Evertonian in the stadium.” - Lampard on the crowd at Goodison. [EFC]

Tonight’s opponents Crystal Palace are missing a couple of players, including forward Michael Olise who ran the Blues ragged the last time the two sides met.
