While Everton fans were busy letting off fireworks outside the Brentford team hotel at 3.30am in the morning, the Bees made sparks fly on the pitch, as Everton ended the game with zero points and nine men after a five-goal classic.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison both struck for the Toffees in a first half that also saw Jarrad Branthwaite shown a 16th-minute red card and Seamus Coleman‘s own goal handing Brentford a lifeline, but two quickfire headers from Rico Henry and Yoane Wissa turned the game on its head before Salomon Rondon‘s dreadful challenge and subsequent sending off.
However, with Leeds United and Burnley both failing to win at the weekend as well, 16th-placed Everton would ensure that they could not be caught by the Whites with all three points on Thursday evening before a trip to Arsenal on the final day.
A four-game unbeaten run on home soil came to an abrupt end for Everton against Thomas Frank‘s side, but they are now 90 minutes away from salvaging their top-flight status, and defeat to Brentford represents just a second loss in seven for Lampard’s men.
Furthermore, not since January 2015 have the Merseyside outfit lost a Premier League game on a Thursday – winning three and drawing four since – and Palace travel to Goodison Park with far less on the line than their survival-scrapping hosts
Everton duo Branthwaite and Rondon will serve suspensions this week owing to their red cards against Brentford, so Lampard will be desperate to have Michael Keane back in the fold to cover for the former.
Nathan Patterson, Andros Townsend, Fabian Delph and Yerry Mina remain confined to the infirmary, but the duo of Donny van de Beek and Ben Godfrey could force themselves back into contention for their side’s final home game.
Andre Gomes was given the nod in midfield alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure last time out, but Allan and Tom Davies will both have their eyes on starting roles in midweek.
Meanwhile, Palace will be forced to cope without starlet Michael Olise for the remainder of the season owing to his recent knock – joining Nathan Ferguson on the long-term absentee list after his recent setback.
James McArthur‘s calf strain may not let up until the final-day meeting with Manchester United, while James Tomkins is also out, and Vieira has no reason to take unnecessary risks over his players’ fitness at this stage.
Schlupp is certainly pushing for a return to the first XI after coming up with the goods at Villa Park, which could see Eberechi Eze drop back down to the bench.

Cheikhou Kouyate will also be spoken to by the club after appearing to show support for Idrissa Gueye’s refusal to play for Paris Saint-Germain while they were sporting LGBTQ+ rainbow colours, but there is nothing to suggest that the Senegal international will not be involved here.
