Only Liverpool (24) have won more Premier League points than Everton (17) since Carlo Ancelotti’s first game in charge of the Toffees in December 2019. Crystal Palace is without a clean sheet in 10 Premier League games, the longest current run in the competition. However, this was just the second time the Eagles have conceded 3+ goals in a Premier League match this season (also 0-4 vs Spurs in September 2019).

Crystal Palace named their oldest ever starting XI in the Premier League (30y 101d). None of the last 18 occasions a team has named a side with an average age of 30+ years in the competition has won (D3 L15), with Man City against Southampton in April 2017 the last such victory. Everton secures a 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace after a thrilling second half.

The hosts quickly took the lead in a drab first 45 when Bernard volleyed home Walcott’s superb cross and from there it seemed as though Everton would be on for a simple win. However, Palace rallied in the second half and briefly threatened to end their recent run of poor form when Benteke’s shot squirmed beneath Pickford. Nevertheless, it wasn’t enough for the away side as Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin combined to add two further goals for the hosts, ensuring that they ran out 3-1 winners.
