Everton vs. Crystal Palace: Preview, TV schedule and how to watch online

Everton will look to boost their chances of a top-four finish with a win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

There's no doubt that Everton are the Premier League's most in-form team at present, heading into the midweek games having won six on the trot. They've leapfrogged Arsenal by a couple of points, and now have a top-four finish and Champions League qualification within their grasp.

Everton will look to boost their chances with a win at home against mid-table Crystal Palace on Wednesday, though it's a game that could be more difficult than the league table suggests. Palace have recently been on a sensational run of form. Tony Pulis continues to work wonders with a side that looked dead and buried when he arrived at Selhurst Park. The Eagles have won three in a row, and seem to have secured their Premier League status for another season.

Everton still have a fairly lengthy injury list, albeit with no notable additions since they squeaked past struggling Sunderland last weekend. By contrast, Palace only have the doubtful Kagisho Dikgacoi to worry about. The South African picked up a knock in the recent win over Aston Villa.

Everton injuries and suspensions

Out: Arouna Koné (knee), Darron Gibson (knee), Phil Jagielka (hamstring), Bryan Oviedo (broken leg), Lacina Traoré (hamstring), Steven Pienaar (knee). In doubt: None.
