EPL: Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace

Romelu Lukaku scored his 65th Premier League goal but this was his first from a direct free-kick in the competition as Christian Benteke cancel out his Belgian contingent with a header to share the spoils at Goodison this Friday Night Football.



Everton took the lead in the 35th minute when Romelu Lukaku converted a freekick from the edge of the box after Palace, Delaney was penalized for high boot on Toffees and England defender Jagielka.

Lukaku lines it up, bends it over the wall and into the corner. Not much Mandanda could have done about that.

Everton took the lead to the end of the interval but were pecked back in the 50th when Ledley finds McArthur, who whips in an early cross to Benteke at the back stick. The Belgian rises above Coleman and heads in cross-goal, past Stekelenburg, from quite a distance



Delaney nearly made two in the 57th minute but his effort was ruled out as an offside.

Both side spurn chances to take the initiative but it all ended all
