Liverpool news Everton lineups vs Crystal Palace as James Rodriguez returns PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Our writers have shared their thoughts on how Everton should set up against Crystal Palace in their latest Premier League fixture, with at least one welcome return
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Adam Jones - Fingers crossed for James Rodriguez Predicting Carlo Ancelotti's Everton lineups is becoming an increasingly tough task. What formation will the Blues play? Who's fully fit? Will there be a surprise inclusion? Well, fingers crossed we'll at least see James Rodriguez back in action from the start this evening, as the side has really missed him. He should play just behind the two strikers as, yes, I'm going for a three-at-the-back again. Michael Keane, Yerry Mina, and Ben Godfrey should be those central defenders, giving the side a solid base to build from. Lucas Digne and Seamus Coleman can provide some much-needed width, while a midfield pair of Allan and Tom Davies should give some steel in front of the defence, while also providing some creativity going forward. There's enough quality in this side to beat Crystal Palace...you'd think.

Robin Olsen will be needed to cover for an injured Jordan Pickford while defenders Michael Keane and Ben Godfrey in front of him have been some of the standouts this season and should continue in the starting lineup. However, making sure that is in a back three alongside Yerry Mina should allow the side to push forward as much as possible. That's helped further with Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne providing plenty of threat in wide positions. With no Doucoure, it will fall to Allan and Tom Davies to shepherd the midfield but James Rodriguez will hopefully return in an advanced position and deliver some killer passes to Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison up top. My team (3-4-1-2): Olsen, Keane, Mina, Godfrey, Digne, Allan, Davies, Coleman, Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin
