Team news

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is set to stick with the same line-up that beat Arsenal last weekend. Midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp (ankle), Mamadou Sakho (knee) and James Tomkins (groin) are out for the season. Pape Souare is also sidelined for the Eagles.

Everton attacker Richarlison is a major doubt with a rib injury suffered last week. Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina are both available but Theo Walcott (illness) and Andre Gomes (ban) won't play.

Quotes

Roy Hodgson

"I am happy with it, there have been long periods where we have had to have a long look over our shoulders to make sure we aren't in a relegation battle.

"To be safe with so many games to spare is something we can be proud of, and to finish in the middle of the table would be a good season for us.

"The knife has been taken from the throat, so it should lead to a game where both teams can play with courage and confidence. I am sure Everton, who like us are safe, will look to finish as high as possible, just like us.

"I donít think it will [be hard to motivate players now safety is secured] because of who they are. They are a serious group and a group that is used to needing to fight.

"I donít see characters who might show complacency in terms of knocking off what we have been doing. The games will prove me right or wrong, but I donít fear it. If we donít get good results, people will say that we have taken our foot off the gas."

Marco Silva

"Iím really happy when I can see our team perform like we did (against United), our players enjoying the game and our fans also. But it was just three points for us.

"We have to keep working hard to achieve what we want the week after. This season hasnít finished yet, there are many things to keep winning until the end, even if you are talking just about three games.

"Next season will be the same, in the right moment we will talk about next season, it is not the moment to talk now. Now, for us, it is really important to put full focus on the Palace match, nothing more.

"In my opinion, they have really high quality in their attack line with one player who is the key player who I know very well: Luka will play in the middle zone and can support really well their attack line.

"They will be tough, it is a tough place to play but in my opinion, it is a good place to play, also. Itís up to us to do our best and if we reach our best level we can win the match."
