Every team has played 36 games or more at this stage of the season, but for some reason, it feels like Everton have played fifty because of the sheer drama associated with their campaign.

I’m genuinely exhausted. I swear to God, Frank Lampard’s only been in that job for four months. Don’t ask me how, but he’s only overseen nineteen games.

But the end is in sight. And I don’t mean that in an Armageddon-type fashion, more that a win against Palace here will be enough to secure them a spot in the Premier League next year, given that Leeds will be more than three points behind them with just a game remaining.

That level of finality and clarity will do absolutely nothing to calm the nerves of an Everton fanbase who probably feel more let down by the one thing they love more than I do every time my missus asks me to watch a TikTok.

Maybe we can all win a few quid and bribe them to stop playing videos of dogs all day?

Palace and the Draw

Originally, I tossed and turned about this selection. In my mind, Palace are having a particularly good year and they’ve no final day worries. So you might think, particularly for the midweek game before the final day, that they’d down tools.

But you’d have thought the same thing about Brentford, only for that catastrophe to happen. So now, where do we stand? Do you want the sub-even money price about Everton winning, or do you want the sub-evens price about them not winning? That’s the only picture you need to paint here.

Richarlison to Score Anytime

This is bit-part because he is their best player; it’s in-part because he takes penalties – but moreso than anything else – it’s because half of their squad is suspended for this game.

The Brazilian scored the important goal against Leicester, scored the winner against Chelsea, and put Everton back into the lead against Brentford. In times of trouble, turn to your talisman.

Over 2.5 Goals

There’s actually a misconception with Everton that they’ve been gung-ho under Lampard, but in recent times, he’s tried to rein it in slightly – to much success. Their 1-0 win over United, their 1-1 draw with Leicester, their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, 1-0 win over Chelsea and then 2-1 away at Leicester were all cagey.

But this is the first time where they know a win can get them what you need, so I’d anticipate, particularly with the suspensions, with the build-up to be less considered, and getting the ball into the playmakers faster will be the right approach.

Over 3.5 Cards

Since Frank Lampard came into Everton, they’ve got five red cards and 33 yellows. For context, Leeds and Arsenal are the only sides in that span to record multiple dismissals – and they have two. And with the stakes heightened further?
