EPL: What stats say ahead of Everton v Crystal palace

Everton have only lost one of their last 14 Premier League games against Crystal Palace (W6 D7), though it did come in the reverse fixture in December this season.

In what is the 22nd different league campaign in which they’ve met, Crystal Palace are looking to complete the double over Everton for the very first time.

Crystal Palace have beaten Everton twice this season, once in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup. As a top-flight side, the Eagles have only twice before beaten a side three times in the same campaign – Charlton Athletic in 1989-90, and Stoke City in 2015-16.

Everton have won just 25 per cent of their Premier League games on Thursdays (3/12), their lowest win rate on a single day of the week. However, the Toffees are unbeaten in their last seven such games (W3 D4) since a 2-0 loss at Hull in January 2015.

Crystal Palace have won their final away game in just three of their 12 Premier League seasons (D2 L7). Two of these were against teams who were relegated (2018-19 v Cardiff, 2017-18 v Stoke), and the other was on Merseyside (2014-15 v Liverpool).

Everton have conceded 59 goals in the Premier League this season, only in 1993-94 (63) have they ever shipped more. Meanwhile, in a 20-team season, they’ve only shipped more in 1905-06 (66) and 1907-08 (64) in their league history.

Seven of Crystal Palace’s Premier League goals this season have been scored by substitutes, their highest ever such tally in a single campaign. Odsonne Édouard, Jeffrey Schlupp and Michael Olise have netted two each for the Eagles this term, with only Dwight Gayle in 2013-14 (4) ever netting more from the bench for them in a single Premier League campaign.

As well as having more red cards than any other side in Premier League history (104), Everton have had a league-high six players sent off this term. The Toffees last had more Premier League red cards in a single season in 2005-06 (7).

Everton boss Frank Lampard and Crystal Palace’s Patrick Vieira faced each other 13 times as players in the Premier League, with Vieira winning nine of those meetings (D3 L1). The Frenchman was sent off in his only defeat to Lampard, a 2-1 loss for Arsenal at West Ham in October 1999.

Everton’s Richarlison has been involved in seven goals in his last nine Premier League appearances (5 goals, 2 assists). Overall, he’s had a hand in 14 Premier League goals this season (9 goals, 5 assists), only registering more in 2019-20 (13 goals, 3 assists).
