Everton 2 – 1 Crystal Palace

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s fifth league goal of the season opened the scoring for the Toffees following neat build-up from James Rodriguez and Seamus Coleman.

Everton continued their perfect start to the season with a deserved victory against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Cheikhou Kouyate’s free header drew Palace level, but Richarlison restored the visitors’ lead from the penalty spot after Joel Ward was controversially adjudged to have handled Lucas Digne’s knockdown.

Everton had chances to extend their lead in the second half, but Calvert-Lewin shinned Rodriguez’s corner past the post before Colombian Rodriguez had a goal-bound shot blocked by Mamadou Sakho.

Palace saw more of the ball in the closing stages but failed to trouble Jordan Pickford in the Toffees’ goal. The win lifts Carlo Ancelotti’s side to the top of the Premier League.
