Coleman Eyes In-Form Eagles

by Daniel Alston

Seamus Coleman is confident Everton can maintain their top-four charge on Wednesday by disrupting the momentum of in-form Crystal Palace.
The Eagles have won their last three games without conceding a goal, recording vital victories against Chelsea, Cardiff City and Aston Villa in their battle against the drop.
Now sitting 12th in the table, Tony Pulis' side have a seven-point cushion above the relegation places and travel to Merseyside to face an Everton team looking for an eighth successive victory and 10th in a row at Goodison Park.
And according to right-back Coleman, home advantage can aid the Blues as they look to strengthen their grip on fourth spot.
He told evertontv: "It's where we want to be and we're taking it one game at a time.
"We know Palace are on a good run of form, so it's going to be a difficult game on Wednesday. But they're coming to our home, so we're looking forward to it.
"At this stage of the season, we just wanted to be playing for something, and we certainly are.
"We're playing very well at the minute and long may that continue."
Coleman operated in tandem with Gerard Deulofeu in Saturday's 1-0 win at Sunderland, with the Spanish winger playing a pivotal part in the decisive goal.
It's a partnership the Republic of Ireland international is enjoying and he's sounding a warning to the Eagles' full-backs ahead of Wednesday evening’s game.
He added: "He (Deulofeu) is one of those players where you've just got to give him the ball and let him face his marker one-v-one and support him as much as you can.
"Once he gets in those positions, he's dangerous for the opposing full-back."
