Competition: FA Cup

Market: Crystal Palace win

Odds: 20/21 @ 888sport

With a spot in the semi-final of this year’s FA Cup up for grabs on Sunday lunchtime, Crystal Palace will welcome Everton to Selhurst Park.

Starting with the hosts, putting in what was a gritty display earlier in the week and snatching a 0-0 stalemate against Manchester City, Crystal Palace do find themselves enjoying a recent purple patch. Continuing to gain plenty of plaudits since appointing Patrick Vieira last summer, the Eagles have their sights firmly set on clinching a Premier League top-half finish. Building off of an eye-catching 2-0 win away at European contenders Wolves on March 5th, the former Arsenal icon should find the mood in his camp at a real high. Booking their spot in the quarter-final of this year’s FA Cup thanks to a 2-1 victory against Championship outfit Stoke, Palace are in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run across all formats. Likewise, it should also be noted that Sunday’s hosts picked up a 3-1 win when they faced off against the Toffees back in December.

As for the visitors, managing to make what was a much-needed return to winning ways earlier in the week, there is no doubt that Everton will be desperate to build off of that result here. However, despite eventually snatching a dramatic late 1-0 win at home against Newcastle on Thursday night, Frank Lampard’s side are still firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap. Recording just a pair of Premier League wins since bringing the former Chelsea boss to Goodison Park, the Blues will be more than aware that they will face a tough task in south London here. Gaining a reputation for their issues on the road and suffering that deserved 3-1 loss against the Eagles earlier in the season, we’re backing a similar home victory that can be found at attractive odds here.

Bet: Crystal Palace 20/21 to beat Everton in Sunday’s FA Cup tie @ 888sport
