Our tipster thinks that there will be goals at both ends but expects the Toffees to prevail against the Eagles at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon

Everton are targeting a third successive Premier League win when Crystal Palace visit Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees have been inconsistent so far this season, but Marco Silva will hope that league wins against Fulham and Leicester City before the international break will provide his side a platform on which to build.

Palace, though, should provide a decent test, for the Eagles have lost just two of their last eight Premier League matches away from Selhurst Park.

Latest odds

With just one win in their last seven league games, though, it is no surprise that Roy Hodgson's side are chalked up as a 33/10 (4.30) chance to win on Merseyside.

Furthermore, Everton are unbeaten in their last seven games against the Eagles in this competition.

SportPesa go 20/23 (1.85) that Silva's side extend that run with a win, while the same firm go 51/20 (3.55) that both sides settle for a share of the spoils on Sunday.

Team news

Summer signings, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes, must prove their fitness as they target their first minutes for the Toffees but they have no fresh concerns.

Christian Benteke has undergone knee surgery and is set for a prolonged spell on the sidelines.

The continued absence of the Belgian piles yet more pressure onto Wilfried Zaha, who has scored three of his side's five Premier League goals so far this season.

Toffees to take advantage of toothless visitors?

The shot-shy Eagles have scored just three goals in their last seven games in this competition and SportPesa go 29/20 (2.45) that the south Londoners draw another blank here, while the same firm go 39/20 (2.95) that Everton win without conceding.

Prediction

The Toffees, though, have managed just one clean sheet in 10 competitive matches under Silva's stewardship and it is their attacking impetus rather than their defensive qualities that could give them the edge here.

The 49/20 (3.45) quote, then, for Everton to win a match in which both teams score could represent value for punters ahead of Sunday's crunch clash.
