Pre-game odds and win probability: A clean sheet could prove the key for Everton

  • HOME: 3/4 (1.75) – 57.1%
  • DRAW: 11/4 (43.75) – 26.7%
  • AWAY: 22/5 (5.40) – 18.5%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Everton lost 2-0 at Man City last time out but defended really well against the Champions, limiting them to just a couple of shots on target during the 90 minutes. Crystal Palace were looking to bounce back from a heavy away defeat at Brighton only to lose 3-1 in their own backyard against Chelsea, putting Roy Hodgson's job at risk, in a development that has seen Oliver Glasner earmarked as an imminent replacement.

Player to watch – Abdoulaye Doucoure

Doucoure proved a big miss for Everton last season and his recent injury has shown just how much Sean Dyche relies on the midfielder as Everton have struggled for goals and wins.

Everton have missed their top goalscorer

Doucoure top scores in the league this season for the Toffees with six goals, three more than striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has managed. If Doucoure returns on Monday night as expected, Everton should have what it takes to secure a big three points against one of their relegation rivals.
