Liverpool were winners of the 25th matchday weekend, earning a top table spot after Manchester City suffered a loss. City has a makeup game (Week 18) against Brentford on Tuesday that could get them back on track, but for now, Liverpool is top of the table.

At the other end of the table, Luton put forward a great match against the far superior Manchester United losing 2-1, but ultimately couldn't earn any points to get themselves some breathing room in the relegation half of the table.

Everton absolutely needs a win here. The club, based on its on-field perforrmances, should be 12th or 13th in the table, but take a 10-point deduction because of breaching profitability and sustainability rules relating to financial losses. They have already appealed.

In this outcome, Crystal Palace is the obvious winner, adding three points of breathing room in their quest to stay out of the relegation zone.

A draw is not enough for Everton to get out of the three bottom relegation spots in the table. They would be tied up with Luton Town F.C.

Palace similarly will take the point over nothing, but one point does not earn them much reason to be calm with their spot in the table moving forward.

Everton standings in EPL table if they lose vs Crystal Palace

Luton Town, who couldn't get out of Sunday's game with any points, will hate to see Palace lose to Everton because it means they'd be back in the relegation zone.

Crystal Palace may feel the pressure of Everton on the pitch, and will also feel them pressing up on them on the table if they surrender three points on Sunday.
