Crystal Palace cracked a tie with Everton

On Monday evening Everton’s Champions League hopes were dented in a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park after Crystal Palace earned a point. Thanks to a late strike from substitute Michy Batshuayi.

In the first half, the home side should have scored, but Vicente Guaita held them at bay, with Richarlison in particular disappointed by the Spaniard’s brilliant form.

But it didn’t take much time for the hosts to equalize after the restart. Seamus Coleman picked up a ball on the left flank and played it into the feet of James Rodriguez, who hammered a precise effort past the despairing Palace goalkeeper.

To keep Palace in the game Guaita kept up his incredible shot-stopping form, but it looked as if Everton would find a second goal.

But it didn’t arrive; instead, Batshuayi struck first, ensuring a share of the spoils.
