It is match day for Crystal Palace as they face Everton in the Premier League at Goodison Park. The Eagles make the trip north to face the Toffees on Merseyside, with Palace looking for a return to winning ways after losing their last two games in the league at home against Southampton and Sheffield United. Indeed, only league leaders Liverpool have picked up more than the 19 Everton have accumulated in their last ten games as they have risen to eighth place in the table. As such, it could be a tough test for Palace, who have not beaten Everton in the league since September 2014. Below, we take a look at the latest Palace news ahead of the game.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed that he is set to continue talks with chairman Steve Parish over a new contract. The Palace manager's future has been the subject of speculation after the January transfer window ended in frustration for the Eagles, with the 72-year-old out of contract this summer in south London. "The chairman and I have had very positive discussions during the week," he said, speaking at his pre-match press conference. "I said before the game last week I said there was no reason to doubt the club's intention they want me to stay, when it comes to transfer windows, the last was disappointing, with [Nathan] Ferguson falling through because he needs an operation. Crystal Palace will be without four players for the game against Everton.

But Palace have also been dealt another injury setback, with former Liverpool defender Martin Kelly also ruled out of the game. Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Hodgson said: "We've lost Martin Kelly, in the training players sometimes do after a game he managed to pick up a slight calf strain. Palace were close to signing West Brom defender Nathan Ferguson in January, with the 19-year-old's move collapsing over a medical issue. But Dowling has also confirmed that the Baggies still expect Ferguson to leave the club in the summer when his contract expires, with no progress on talks over a new deal. "The discussions we've had with his representatives since deadline day suggest that he will still leave us at the end of the season," he told BBC West Midlands.

If Liverpool keep winning, Manchester City drop three points, and Leicester drop any points between now and the Merseyside derby, Jurgen Klopp's side can potentially claim the title at Goodison Park on March 16. Ancelotti, who has won four of his eight games in charge of the Toffees, was asked about the possibility to which he said: "Liverpool are going to win the Premier League. "I think it would go down well for the Liverpool supporters - I'm not sure about the Everton supporters," Rush told Sky Sports. "But, if it's going to be at Goodison Park, I don't think any Liverpool supporters would be angry with that. "One thing for sure is that Everton will be trying to make certain they don't win it there, so that will be a really entertaining game." Everton midfielder Andre Gomes may yet play in the Merseyside derby despite suffering a horrific injury against Tottenham on November 3.
