Eagles fans had precious little to cheer at home last season and we think they will be frustrated once more by an exciting Toffees team on Saturday

A busy summer transfer window for Everton has created plenty of optimism in the blue half of Merseyside ahead of their Premier League opener at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Marco Silva's side travel to Selhurst Park, where they have not lost since 1994, and are highly fancied to keep that run going this weekend.

Latest odds

bet365 offer the visitors at 11/8 (2.38) for the win, although Everton did win only five of their 19 away matches last season.

Palace's home form was identical, with Roy Hodgson's men too only winning five games in front of their own fans. A victory for the Eagles is available at 2/1 (3.00) with the draw at 9/4 (3.25).

Team news

New Everton signing Fabian Delph picked up a groin injury in the friendly game with Werder Bremen last weekend and while it is not thought to be too serious, it remains to be seen whether he can feature on Saturday

Gary Cahill is set to make his Palace debut in the heart of defence, with his partner likely to be Mamadou Sakho as James Tomkins remains sidelined. The Toffees had bids for Wilfried Zaha rejected this summer and the forward could start on Saturday.

Preview

Everton managed to keep clean sheets in both of their meetings with Palace last term, winning 2-0 at Goodison Park before the sides played out a goalless draw in London.

Despite winning just five matches on the road, Everton conceded only 25 goals in those fixtures - a better defensive record than 15 other teams in the division.

Palace, for their part, had the second-worst scoring record at home, netting just 19 goals at Selhurst Park and failing to score in eight of those clashes.

Roy Hodgson's side have not seemingly addressed this problem in the transfer window and the Eagles could once more struggle in front of goal.

Tips and predictions

Everton are offered at 7/4 (2.75) to keep a clean sheet which should appeal, while opposing both teams to score at 11/10 (2.10) could also be of interest.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
