Richarlison’s stunning solo goal downed Crystal Palace and sent Everton into seventh as the Premier League weekend began.

Everton took the lead after a quiet opening 15 minutes where the best chance fell to the visitors as Patrick Van Aanholt’s deflected shot hit a post.

Bernard tapped the ball home from Theo Walcott’s right-wing cross after 18 minutes to put the hosts ahead.


Just moments after Walcott had provided the assist – continuing his own personal momentum from last week – the winger went down injured with what appeared to be a knee injury. He was replaced shortly after by Sidibe after going down again.

Zaha, who has been anonymous so far at Goodison, switched flanks to come down the right as Palace barely got the ball to him in the opening 35 minutes.

But Roy Hodgson’s side failed to bring a change of fortune as they trailed by Bernard’s opener at the break.

Palace struck back five minutes after the break as Christian Benteke slotted the ball under a beaten Jordan Pickford – who spilled the tame shot as he went down – at the near post to level matters.

But the Toffees regained their lead just before the hour mark as Richarlison went on a run from the halfway line and fired the ball into the far corner from just inside the 18-yard box to make it 2-1.
