A Minute's applause for the Hillsborough Support Group, to the song 'He's my Brother'. Very emotional.
I've just spotted Brendan Rodgers in the crowd at Goodison - a bit of scouting for when his Reds play the Eagles in May!
Jon Saunders says: "Tonights re-arranged fixture, it wont be the bad weather lifting the roof off Goodison Park this evening, it will be the toffee's attacking play and 3 points that will see the crowd lift the roof. COYB!!! My prediction 3-1 to the blues. Lets make 4th place our own!!" That's the spirit Jon, I always like a bit of confidence going into the game! Enjoy the match!
Charles Hawkins says: "Both teams are in good form and Palace were unlucky not to win the previous encounter. So, I anticipate a tight game and hopefully Everton can nick it otherwise my Liverpool FC "mates" will give me a hard time. Everton to win 2-1." I've seen a few Liverpool fans on our website wanting the Toffees to get into the Champions League too - it would be good for the city, they say, while just imagine if they were drawn together in the latter stages of the competition, or is that just a dream?
James Newton says: "We maybe playing Palace but it's Everton who need to soar like Eagles tonight. Nothing but a win is good enough for that 4th spot and Lukaku and Deulofeu will win it for us 2-0 in our push for Europe." Cheers James, enjoy the game!
Stewart MacLaren from a cool & cloudy Torrevieja in Spain says: "Everton will beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Goodison Park this evening with good goals from Ross Barkley & Romelu Lukaku." Cheers Stewart, enjoy the game!
Bernadette Cranny says: "With Goodison rocking and a very attacking line up for Everton, Martinez has gone for 3pts.Palace will sit back and try to attack on the brake, but there will be no brake. Everton to win 2-0 COYB" Cheers Bernadette, as you say, it is an attacking line-up. I'm looking forward to seeing Barkley again, he has impressed me, while I also think McGeady will be a top signing for the Toffees in the seasons to come. Enjoy the game!
Chris has been back in touch to ask: "Do you believe that Pulis' men are capable of upsetting the odds by beating Everton in their own backyard?" They're certainly capable of it Chris - well-organised, they haven't conceded a goal in the last three games, while with Bolasie and Puncheon they have pace and trickery down the wings. That said, Everton have won seven league games on the bounce and I think that momentum will see them win, but only by the one goal. Any more views? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post up the best.
MY VIEW - I also think Everton will prove too strong and Roberto Martinez is going for it with the team he has picked. That said, Tony Pulis is one shrewd customer and it will be tough to break the Eagles down. My heart says a 3-0 win to the Blues but my head thinks it will be just the solitary strike - so 1-0 to Everton, with Lukaku to get it late on, which pays a handsome 15/1 with Sky Bet! What are your views / predictions for tonight? Send them to email@example.com
James Pendleton says: "One of the biggest games of the season, they're in good form are Palace, but I think we should be able to get an early goal and push on, going for a 3-0 Everton win, COYB!"
One of our regulars, Chris Green from Huddersfield, has been in touch to say: "Everton to win 2-1, with Deulofeu and Lukaku scoring the goals." Cheers Chris, enjoy the game!
FIRST VIEW - Dan from Sunny Midsomer Norton in Somerset says: "I think this will be a tough game for Everton, but under the floodlights of Goodison and it's Magic Atmosphere we will be too strong for Palace. I'm going for 3-1 Everton. Naismith, Lukuku and Coleman to score. COYB." Cheers for your view Dan, let's hope this sun carries on for a great summer! Enjoy the game!
