Everton v Crystal Palace, 1945
Roberto Martinez’s team are a 4/9 chance to win this encounter and they are bidding for an eighth straight Premier League victory which will take them back to fourth place and in line for a Champions League spot come the end of the season.
However, the game might be a good deal closer than the match odds suggest, with Crystal Palace enjoying some fine form themselves which has seen them beat Chelsea, Cardiff City and Aston Villa without conceding a goal.
Indeed, Martinez is aware that the task will be difficult on Wednesday night and the home crowd might need to be patient before a breakthrough is achieved.
BetVictor offer 6/1 about a 1-0 or 2-0 victory for Everton and they are proving to be defensively solid as could be seen with a 1-0 win at Sunderland which followed a 3-0 victory against the Gunners.
The same bookie go 5/4 about a Toffees win to nil and we should bear in mind that Palace have managed to score just nine goals on their travels this term, three of which came against Cardiff on their last road trip.

Manchester City v Sunderland, 1945
Sunderland are like a punch-drunk boxer at the foot of the Premier League and Manchester City should come along and deliver the knockout punch even without the services of Yaya Toure.
As Toure exits for the season, Sergio Aguero comes back into the fold and the Argentine is likely to make hay against a side that were thrashed 5-1 at White Hart Lane and appear to be losing faith in the prospect of staying in the division.
Gus Poyet will put his faith in Sunderland winning their remaining three home matches although it will be a defensive rearguard action from an early stage of this game and perhaps City might take a little while to find the breakthrough.
BetVictor go 4/1 about the game being level at half-time before City win the match and the Black Cats were recently close to going in goalless at Anfield before Steven Gerrard despatched a free-kick before the interval.
However, the home side could run out big winners in the end as the visitors start to tire and bet365 offer 11/8 about City with a -2.5 goal handicap.
