Everton welcome Crystal Palace to Goodison Park on Wednesday (Watch live, 2:45 p.m. ET online via NBC Sports Live Extra) as the Toffees know a win will take them back in to the top four at Arsenal’s expense.
Roberto Martinez‘s side are flying and are looking for their eighth-straight win in the league, something they have not done for over 30 years. Crystal Palace are no slouches, as they’re looking for their fourth-straight win.
The Eagles have soared clear of the relegation zone and are comfortably in midtable after Tony Pulis has masterminded a remarkable turnaround. Everton will be up for the battle but know that Palace are extremely organized at the back after they kept three-straight clean sheets.
