Both teams are going for this! Nobody is settling for a point!


Four added minutes to come.


Kinda works.


SAVE! Surprise, surprise it is Richarlison with the shot, but Guaita is again equal to it, low to his right.


Poor defending from Michael Keane gets punished. Zaha picks the ball up, Keane steps out, Batshuayi slips in behind, before slotting into the far corner. Can they win it from here?

GGGGGOOOOOAAALLLL!!! Everton 1-1 Palace. Substitute Batshuayi has stolen an equaliser


Final change for Palace, as Michy Batshuayi comes on for Ayew.


CHANCE! Ball falls kindly for Schlupp, but he snatches at the shot, and drags wide from a good position.


MISS! Another chance goes begging for Richarlison as he drills into the ground from a good position, enabling Guaita to fling up a hand and tip the ball over.

Name the others...


Everton looking a little nervy when they get on the ball here.


Benteke looks to get on the end of a free-kick but cannot get there.

Change for Palace with Jeff Schlupp on for Riedeweld.


Ayew with the spin and shot, but it is straight at Olsen again.


Zaha does well to stay on his feet, gets it onto his left, fires for goal, but it is straight at Olsen.


What can Palace do here? They have had plenty of the ball, and still look a threat...


A great signing.


Eze gets caught by Calvert-Lewin, but there is no booking for the Everton hitman.




SHOULD BE TWO! Calvert-Lewin has to score. He charges through the middle and only has Guaita to beat from 15 yards. He snatches at the finish though and the goalkeeper makes the block.


It looked like Sigurdsson had passed up another opportunity to break the deadlock, as Guaita saved smartly from point-blank range, but the rebound comes out to James, who expertly arrows in a strike at the near post. His 100th career goal in European football.

Everton still look a little short in the final third.


BLOCK! Ball finds kindly for Sigurdsson on the edge of the box, he drills for goal, but it is blocked well by Cahill.


Lovely move from Palace sets Van Aanholt through, but Coleman recovers well to make the tackle.


Richarlison again in the thick of it, but this time doing the defending to dispossess Zaha.


Richarlison is involved early again, winning a free kick off Cahill down the left. James steps up and decides to curl one towards Guaita instead of finding a team-mate but the goalkeeper makes an easy take.

  • 2nd Half

KICK OFF! We are back under way. No further changes.


They should really be in front.

  • End of 1st Half

HT: Everton 0-0 Palace. The hosts have had the better of the openings, with Richarlison especially guilty of missing glaring openings. This could be a opportunity missed for Everton...


Two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.


OVER! Sigurdsson whips a free-kick into the middle, Richarlison gets up highest, but heads over the top.


James lines one up from distance, drills for the bottom corner, but it flies just wide.


Richarlison lines up a free-kick in a dangerous position for Everton, but he curls just over.


Over 70 per cent possession in the last 10 minutes for Palace.


Benteke brings the ball down well, swivels and shoots but it is blocked. Good pressure from Palace.


Palace enjoying more of the ball at the moment.


Patrick van Aanholt also stays down and requires treatment. Looks like he can continue however.

Blow for Everton as Gomes limps off, with Gylfi Sigurdsson coming on in his place.


Zaha picks the ball up about 25 yards out and moves into space. He then drills a pretty poor effort well wide of the far post. He then has a moan about something in the direction of a team-mate.


They haven't needed to!


Can Everton make this pressure count? They are well on top at the moment.


DOUBLE SAVE! Game is really opening up now and Everton should be in front. Gomes wins the ball in midfield, threads it though for Richarlison, who checks onto his right foot, but is denied by Guaita, before the Palace stopper gets up to smother the rebound at the Everton forward's feet.


DOUBLE CHANCE! Long ball over the top catches Palace out, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is clean through, but Vicente Guaita does well to race from his line to block, before the ball comes back in, and Richarlison heads over from a good position.


SAVE! Lovely one-two between Eberechi Eze and Ayew, the former then rifles a powerful strike for goal, but Robin Olsen gets down well to make a smart save.


Scrappy game as Everton commit more fouls.


Jordan Ayew carries the ball down the right, but Richarlison makes the foul.


Palace growing into this more and more. Everton on the back foot.


Nice switch of play from James to Digne, who has lots of room. He clips a cross into the middle but Guaita is there to claim.


Palace look a real threat on the counter attack every time they get on the ball.


Waste from Everton. Andre Gomes does well to win the ball off Luka Milivojevic, but he elects to pass to Richarlison, who is well offside.


Nice swift break from Palace, but Zaha's powerful strike is blocked.


All Everton possession so far here. Not doing much with it.


Joel Ward fortunate there to avoid an early yellow card for putting his arm across Lucas Digne.


KICK OFF! We are up and running here at Goodison.


So here we go. This is a shoo-in for Champions League chasing Everton, right? No. Everton have lost seven of their last 11 Premier League home games (W3 D1), having lost just one of their 15 previously (W7 D7). Their seven home league defeats this season is their most in a single Premier League campaign since 2015-16 (8). We are minutes away!


With little else to play for, Palace will be looking to shore up their backline on the road. Palace have kept just one clean sheet in their last 18 Premier League away games (W5 D2 L11), with that coming in a goalless draw at Arsenal in January. Only Sheffield United (0) have kept fewer clean sheets on the road than the Eagles this season.


Ahead of kick off, catch up with all the latest transfer talk from across Europe as Neymar and Lionel Messi could be set for a reunion.

Video - Neymar and Messi set to reunite? But not at PSG?! - Euro Papers


Wonder what they are discussing?


A added incentive for Roy. Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has never won away against Everton in the Premier League (D1 L8), losing each of his last seven visits. Indeed, Goodison Park is the ground Hodgson has managed at the most without ever winning in the competition.


Not everyone rises over Easter.


Everton are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace (W6 D6), though they’ve not done the league double over the Eagles since the 2004-05 campaign. Palace have lost their last three away league games against Everton, more than they had in their previous 10 visits to Goodison Park (W4 D4 L2). They’ve never lost four consecutive away games against the Toffees before. Four of Crystal Palace’s five Premier League wins against Everton have been at Goodison Park, with their most recent victory there coming in September 2014 (3-2).
