We’re now less than 24 hours away from Palace’s crunch clash with David Unsworth’s Everton at Selhurst Park; a game that both sides will feel they have to win if they hold genuine hopes of climbing above the relegation dogfight in the near future.
In today’s round-up, Toffees frontman Oumar Niasse opens up about the breakdown of his proposed Deadline Day move to Palace back in August, speaking rather cryptically about the whole matter throughout. We hear from Roy Hodgson, who clears up any uncertainty over the possibility of Chelsea recalling Ruben Loftus-Cheek early from his season-long loan, actor Will Ferrell predicts a comfortable Palace win and we take a look into why Jordan Pickford & co. are likely to be quaking in their boots at the prospect of going head-to-head with Christian Benteke.
Everton striker Oumar Niasse came incredibly close to signing on the dotted line at Crystal Palace in the last few hours of this summer’s transfer window before the deal mysteriously broke down. Now, for the first time, the Toffees’ hitman has spoken about the failed move.
The hype surrounding Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek over the last few days has been startling to say the least and now, amidst suggestions that the Blues may call the 21-year-old back from his loan at Crystal Palace, Roy Hodgson has been forced to weigh in.
Mark Lawrenson and Will Ferrell may not be the most reliable of men when it comes to predicting Crystal Palace’s results but ahead of this weekend’s clash between ourselves and Everton, I’ll take any crumb of comfort I can lay my hands on.
It’s been an extremely long few weeks for supporters of Crystal Palace FC but tomorrow, we are set to welcome Belgian international striker Christian Benteke back into the starting XI following his recovery from a knee ligament injury.
