Crystal Palace are set to be without four first-team players for their Premier League clash against Everton at Selhurst Park on Saturday, according to Ben Dinnery.
The Toffees will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to five games when they travel to South London on 11 November to take on a Palace side sitting four points above them in the Premier League table.
Injury expert Dinnery shared the data on his website and has listed the players who will not be available and are “ruled out” for the game at Selhurst Park, with Michael Olise and James Tomkins unavailable until after the forthcoming international break.
Youngster Jesurun Rak-Sakyi and Dean Henderson are also both ruled out of the game with no return dates listed.
Everton are on something of an upward trajectory under Sean Dyche’s tutelage after recent results, a run now spanning four games unbeaten in all competitions and just one defeat in their last five games.
Wins over West Ham United and Bournemouth certainly pointed towards Dyche finally getting a tune out of his men both defensively and in attack.
The Toffees could well have recorded another crucial and impressive victory against Brighton at the weekend but for Ashley Young’s unfortunate own goal which shared the spoils in the end.
Dyche will have certainly been gutted by that result but must pick his men up again when they travel to Crystal Palace who will be delighted by their 2-0 win over Burnley on Saturday (4 November), after two disappointing consecutive defeats.
Palace have been considerably blighted with injuries the past couple of months but it certainly seems to be improving right now with key man Ebere Eze now back in action for the Eagles.
One player Everton will have to be wary of as they face off in another crucial encounter in the Premier League, a game which could go either way.
