The Eagles have been fantastic since Alan Pardew took over, and after seemingly being in danger of relegation, already look to have secured their status as a Premier League side for another season.

They have had to deal with injuries and absences, and have not relied too heavily on one or two players. The likes of Wilfried Zaha, James McArthur, and Glenn Murray have been superb, and Palace don’t look like they would be significantly diminished by the loss of a few players.

Everton have certainly been sub-standard this season, and have really struggled in the Premier League.

One of their main issues is arguably their lack of depth, so even though players like Lukaku haven’t been as influential as they were last season, the Toffees would still struggle without them.

Players like Phil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin, and Leon Osman are arguably past their best, so the likes of McCarthy and Stones have become all the more important.

While Roberto Martinez would still have a handful of top quality players at his disposal, you have to think they would significantly weakened by the loss of this trio.

Steve Bruce’s side have arguably already proven that they can cope without these three, as all have experienced injuries and suspensions at one point or another during the season.

More was expected of Hull this season, and while they haven’t been terrible, more is certainly required from their top players.

Leicester have surprised many with their performances this season, but not by their position in the table.

It’s hard to see them doing much worse, so the loss of these three players arguably wouldn’t have much of an impact.
