The breakthrough for Everton came on the eighteenth minute when Theo Walcott raced beyond Patrick van Aanholt and crossed for Bernard to spectacularly volley in on his 50th Premier League appearance.

However, Roy Hodgson’s charges were drawn level six minutes after the break when Christian Benteke’s shot slipped through the hands of Jordan Pickford for his first Premier League goal since April 2019.

Everton restored their lead seven minutes later, as Richarlison raced beyond the Palace defence and fired into the bottom corner, before Calvert-Lewin tapped in a late third.
