Everton 2-3 Crystal Palace – Premier League – 21st September 2014
Everton’s poor start to the season continued on Sunday with the Toffees losing at home to Crystal Palace.
The hosts had started much the brighter and went ahead courtesy of a Romelu Lukaku goal as Palae struggled with the pace and movement of the Toffees, However, on the half-hour mark, the Eagles were level when Mile Jedinak converted a penalty after Tim Howard fouled James McArthur in the box.
Neil Warnock’s side started the second period superbly and goals from Fraizer Campbell and Yannick Bolasie put Palace 3-1 up with 20 minutes still to play. The Toffees did get a goal back via a Leighton Baines spot-kick but ultimately it was the south Londoners who would take all three points.
Both sides now have five points from five games.
