Three important players for Everton are sidelined, dealing a severe blow to their relegation rivals.

Three important players for Everton are sidelined, dealing a severe blow to their relegation rivals.

Everton has been heavily impacted by injuries this season, a problem not unique to them but rather a widespread issue in the Premier League.

Factors such as the demanding schedule, intensified pace of play, and extensive international

travel have contributed to what is considered one of the worst years for player ailments.

The absence of Abdoulaye Doucoure has been particularly challenging for Everton’s manager, Sean Dyche, as Doucoure has been instrumental in their midfield.

However, his imminent return is expected to provide a significant boost to the team,

while their relegation rivals, Crystal Palace, face a major setback.

Crystal Palace, led by manager Roy Hodgson, are struggling with injuries, further

complicating their already poor form, having won only two of their last 14 games.

The Daily Mail reports a fresh blow to the team, with creative player Eberechi Eze

expected to be sidelined for up to three weeks due to a muscular tear, likely causing him to

miss the upcoming match against Everton.

Additionally, Michael Olise and Marc Guehi are also injured, adding to Palace’s woes.

This string of key absences could be disastrous for Palace, who are already facing the threat of relegation. For Everton, this presents an opportunity to gain ground towards safety in the league standings.

Despite the perception that Everton and Luton Town are the main contenders to

avoid the final relegation spot, other teams remain vulnerable.

Only five points separate Everton in 18th place from Palace in 14th, highlighting the tight competition and the potential for any team in the lower ranks to face relegation.

Losing key players like Olise and Eze could severely impact Palace’s chances of survival, given their significant contributions to the team’s performance.

Their absence in crucial matches could prove decisive in the relegation battle, while

Everton aims to capitalize on this opportunity to close the gap with their rivals in the standings.
