Liverpool continue their push for a first league title since 1980/90 when they host bottom of the table Huddersfield at Anfield in the Friday night Premier League action. Despite having one eye on next week’s mouth-watering Champions League semi-final first leg away to Barcelona, Klopp’s team can’t afford to lose focus in their titanic title tussle with Manchester City on the domestic front. Form Labs return with their betting preview and tips for the game and if you are after some value then head over to our FanBoosts section and check out the enhanced odds on offer.
Everton Recent Form
Whereas Palace have been alternating between wins and losses over their last eight games, showing very little consistency, Everton have won four of their last five as they’ve started demonstrating their true potential under Marco Silva.
These have included wins over Chelsea, Arsenal and of course their most recent outing, a 4-0 demolition of a sorry Man Utd side, with their recent form leaving them amongst the cluster of teams between 7th and 10th hoping to qualify for the Europa League next term.
The Toffees have however suffered on the road, losing eight of 12 trips since the beginning of December across all competitions, including an embarrassing FA Cup loss to Championship strugglers Millwall.
The four exceptions came against Burnley, Huddersfield and Cardiff (all of whom are below Palace in the table), as well an out of form West Ham side, so that doesn’t inspire confidence that they’re ready to do the business away from Goodison Park.
Palace v Everton Head-To-Head
Recent head-to-head meetings would suggest the same, with four of seven clashes since 2015/16 ending in stalemates, though with Everton winning the other three and Palace just W1-D1-L7 hosting top-half teams this term, we’d steer clear of the match outcome market.
Instead, there’s potential for an exciting game full of goals. Seven of Palace’s last 10 games in all competitions have seen at least three strikes, with five of these featuring four or more, while Roy Hodgson’s men have only failed to net once in 19 matches across 2019 to date.
Palace v Everton betting Tips
Palace demonstrated their forward potential with three goals at the Emirates – with even Christian Benteke getting in on the act – but they did still concede twice down the other end.
That means they’ve kept just four clean sheets in 14 appearances in all tournaments – against Fulham, Doncaster, Huddersfield and Newcastle – and Everton’s form at present should see them take a goal or two back to Merseyside.
The Eagles’ prospects of producing a shut out are limited by the absence through injury of first choice centre-back partnership Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins.
The former in particular is a big loss, with seven of last 10 league outings he’s missed featuring at least three goals, as well as seven out of 10 seeing both teams find the net, as Palace themselves conceded twice or more in seven of these too.
