Everton 2-1 Crystal Palace: Iwobi, Eze In Action As Everton Top EPL

Eberechi Eze who made his Premier League debut in Palace’s opening game against Southampton, was in the starting line-up before he was replaced by Michy Batshuayi with 15 minutes left.

Everton took an early 10-minute lead when Dominic Calvert-Lewin netted his fifth goal in his opening three Premier League matches of the campaign.

James Rodriguez released Seamus Coleman down the right as the full-back cut the ball back to Calvert-Lewin.

Cheikhou Kouyate brought Palace level when he headed in Andros Townsend’s corner in the 26th minute.

Everton wanted a penalty soon after when Richarlison’s cross hit Ward’s arm, but the referee and a VAR check, did not agree with the shouts.

However, Ward was not so lucky for a second time as he appeared to be harshly penalised when Lucas Digne’s knockdown hit him from close-range.

Richarlison stepped up and made no mistake as he opened his Premier League account for the season and put Everton 2-1 up on 40 minutes.

Everton have now won their opening three games to a Premier League season for the first time since 1993-94 season.
