Roberto Martinez warns his Everton players to expect a 'tough' match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has warned his players to expect a 'tough' match against Crystal Palace when they meet on Wednesday.

The Toffees, who are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table, continue their quest for Champions League qualification against the Eagles at Goodison Park.

However, Martinez believes that his team will not have it easy against the visitors, who are battling to stay in the top flight.

"It's going to be a really difficult game and we need to be well rested and well prepared," the Spaniard told the club's official website. "And we need [the fans'] support, because Crystal Palace are one of the toughest sides in the division in terms of their defensive focus and how good they are in their defensive intensity."

Everton and Palace drew 0-0 when they faced each other at Selhurst Park back in November.
