Crystal Palace

Last updated: Sat 10 August 2019 08:31
In Brief

Eagles start second season in a row having the oldest manager in entire division. Sakho, Tomkins and Schlupp set to miss. Zaha set to play.

Looking Back

Palace enjoyed very comfortable last season, but pre-season was bad for Eagles. Only win in 7 friendlies was against lower league Bristol City, while bad defeats suffered against Barnet (2:6), Nottingham (0:1) and Hertha Berlin (0:4).

Schlupp used a lot in pre-season as supporting striker and he could start campaign in advanced role.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hodgson seems set on giving Benteke another chance as leader of attack, but Belgian can be effective only if quality of crosses is high.

Sakho and Schlupp ruled out, but after failed transfer saga big star Zaha set to play against the team Palace refused to sell him to.

Tomkins start season injured, while Ward set to replace sold Wan-Bissaka as main right-back.

Points of Interest

On nine-game winless run in this fixture – 5 draws and 4 defeats.

Everton

Last updated: Sat 10 August 2019 08:32
In Brief

Another summer of impressive recruitment increased ambitions even more. Struggled for goals in pre-season. Baines doubtful. Delph ruled out.

Looking Back

Everton had third best defensive efficiency in league last spring, only Liverpool and Man City had better stats, with solid form at the back continuing in pre-season – 4 clean sheets in 7 friendlies.

Issues in pre-season at other end, just 3 goals scored in 7 games, but recent big-money signing of Kean and return after extended holiday from Richarlison should remedy that.

Looking Ahead

Coach Silva happy with Mina’s displays in pre-season and after first year at the club ruined by injuries Colombian expected to be key figure from now on.

Kean comes a bit behind with his preparations, in Italy new season doesn’t start until end of August, and Calvert-Lewin likely to be preferred to lead attack from off in this one.

Baines doubtful + Delph sidelined after taken off early in last friendly.

Points of Interest

Ended last season on run of 8 clean sheets in last 11 rounds.

Manager Comments

Silva made clear state of intent for season ahead: “We will do our best to do something special in the FA Cup and League Cup - and in the Premier League."
