EPL Match of the Week: Everton vs. Crystal Palace

It's a slightly quiet week in the EPL, as there are no matches between teams in the top 6.

We have to dig a little deeper this week to find our Match of the Week, and it goes to Everton hosting Crystal Palace.

Palace and Everton are both in good form and their recent run has seen them both enter the top 10. Palace especially are turning some heads and making some noise as they sit in 7th in the table, riding high after their 5-1 drubbing of Newcastle last week.


Striker Romelu Lukaku is playing some amazing football, and his performances this season have been more impressive than ever before. He currently sits second in the league's scoring tables with 10 goals, behind the untouchable Jamie Vardy.

Midfielder Ross Barkley has recovered his form, too, after a tough campaign last year. The team are playing admirably and are one of the more fun teams to watch in the division as they score loads of goals.

They're coming off a wild draw with Bournemouth where they will feel like they dropped points, as they let the bottom-dwellers come back and earn a 3-3 draw at the death.

Crystal Palace

Winger Yannick Bolasie was named ESPN's Player of the Week last week after his performance putting in 2 goals against Newcastle, and he isn't the only one playing great. James McArthur had a wonderful match, too, and finally seems to be getting the credit he deserves for doing the dirty work in Palace's midfield alongside Yohan Cabaye.

Wilfried Zaha and Connor Wickham are both playing extremely well, too, with the latter just coming back from injury and doing his finest to solidify his place in the first XI for manager Alan Pardew.


. I'm not sure they'll be able to hold off Palace's attack long enough to sustain this one despite having a home crowd behind them.

I'll say 2-1, Palace. Cabaye and Wickham on the scoresheet.
