Everton vs Crystal Palace team news: nine players out and three doubtful for Premier League clash - gallery

Everton and Crystal Palace injury news ahead of the Premier League fixture at Goodison Park.

Everton look to lift themselves out of the Premier League relegation zone when they welcome Crystal Palace to Goodison Park on Monday night (20.00 GMT).

The Toffees sit a point adrift of safety as they continue to wait on the outcome of their appeal following a 10-point deduction. The punishment has plunged Everton into another scrap at the bottom of the table, having narrowly survived in the past two seasons.

However, Sean Dyche will also be aware that although the Blues should be sitting 13th in the table, results need to improve. Everton haven't won in the league in the previous eight matches, while it's only one triumph in 11 games in all competitions.

That victory arrived over Crystal Palace, however. The Toffees earned a 1-0 win in the FA Cup third-round replay last month and the two sides will do battle for a fourth time this season. Dyche's men also scrapped to a 3-2 win at Selhurst Park in November, while they played out a 0-0 draw in the original FA Cup clash.

Palace have slumped down the table and there are fears among fans that they could be dragged into a dogfight. The Eagles are five points clear of the relegation zone but suffered a 3-1 loss to Chelsea last time out and pressure is growing on manager Roy Hodgson.

Both Everton and Palace have injury issues ahead of the fixture. Here's an early look at the team news.
