Everton vs Crystal Palace 2-3 Live Commentary
83′Penalty Goal Leighton Baines
BAINES PULLS ONE BACK! Everton win a penalty when Dann is harshly adjudged to have tripped McCarthy in the box. Baines steps up to the spot and he keeps his composure to send Speroni the wrong way.
69′Goal Yannick Bolasie
BOLASIE MAKES IT 3-1! Everton have been second-best in midfield since going ahead and Osman has his pocket picked by Puncheon all too easily. The former Southampton winger coolly picks out Bolasie on the left corner of the box and the Democratic Republic of Congo man makes no mistake, steering his effort into the bottom corner.
54′Goal Fraizer Campbell
CAMPBELL GIVES PALACE THE LEAD! It’s another howler from Howard as he completely misjudges Kelly’s cross from the right. Campbell contests the aerial challenge with the American goalkeeper and the ball strikes him on the back of the head before bouncing over the line despite the best efforts of Jagielka to acrobatically clear it. Goodison Park is shell-shocked.
30′Penalty Goal Mile Jedinak
JEDINAK MAKES IT 1-1! Howard is the culprit as he needlessly brings down McArthur inside the box following a lapse in communication with Stones. Jedinak steps up to take the spot kick and he makes no mistake, smashing it excellently into the top right-hand corner. Howard was never going to stop that one.
9′Goal Romelu Lukaku
LUKAKU GIVES EVERTON THE LEAD! Osman is the architect once again as he feeds a pass through Dann’s legs. Lukaku latches onto it and he shows his strength to hold off Delaney before coolly slotting under Speroni.
