Everton with three straight wins to start the season, for the first time in 27 years!! Premier League Full time stats 90+3’ - DCL doing very well winning two niggly fouls, running down the clock. 90’- Richarlison going off now, Tom Davies is on. We’ll have 4 minutes added on. Davies promptly gives it away just outside his own half. Never change Tom. Meanwhile, Iwobi has had about five touches and every single one has...

Everton 2-1 Crystal Palace: Instant Reaction | Onward

Photo by Tony McArdle/Everton FC via Building steam. Allow me to put a twist on an old sports adage. You can’t qualify for Europe in the first month of the season, but you can certainly fail to do so, and Everton are succeeding at not doing that. Debuting their beautiful away kits in a monsoon at Selhurst Park, the Blues dispatched Crystal Palace for their fifth consecutive win to open the season. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his league leading 5th goal of the season at the end of an attacking move created by - you guessed it - James Rodriguez. Richarlison would later dispatch a...

VAR advises the ref to take a look for himself on the pitchside monitor, that was pretty blatant. Friend gives a penalty! Richarlison steps up to take.. slows his run up, and then hits it midheight to his left, GOAL! Guaita dives the right way, but it’s too high for him. Ward is still complaining and gets booked...

Into the box again, but cleared and Everton break. James finds Richarlison streaking away, but a poor first touch allows defenders to regroup. The Brazilian twists and turns, and then shoots and it appears to go off Ward’s arm and for a corner, shouts for a penalty. VAR says no penalty, though that...

Everton at Crystal Palace: Live | DCL puts Blues up 1-0!

Photo by BRADLEY COLLYER/POOL/AFP via Two sides with 100% records meet, something’s gotta give Live Blog 22’ - Zaha and Mina tangle in the middle on a Palace break, and Friend straightaway shows the Palace captain a yellow. Didn’t look like much honestly. 19’ - Poor clearance from Sakho wins the Blues their first corner. They take it short though and it eventually fizzles out. 16’ - Digne clears for a corner to Palace. Townsend to swing it in, goes for the back post to likely knock it back into the middle like they have done in the past, but it’s too deep. Now Ward finds...
