The visitors led 2-0 at halftime thanks to Mateta’s close-range goal, before a series of defensive errors led Ayew to double the lead.

Everton struggled to come back into the game, only Richarlison came close to getting a goal from a free kick, but they came back from the half time break with a huge fighting spirit.

Keane pulled one back for the Frank Lampard team before Richarlison finally grabbed his goal to level the scores.

The home side kept fighting for the winning and it all paid off when Calvert-Lewin sealed the win with a diving header from Gray’s free kick.

Palace, on the other end, blows an opportunity to move into the top half of the table. They are still in 13th place, with one game left against Manchester United.
