Everton 1 – 1 C Palace

Estimated read time 2 min read

Oliver Glasner watched on from the stands as Crystal Palace were held to a 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park after Amadou Onana scored late to cancel out Jordan Ayew’s opener.

The new Palace boss, announced ahead of kick-off as it was confirmed that Roy Hodgson was stepping down, witnessed a nervy encounter between two relegation-threatened sides, which appeared close to being settled by a moment of solo quality from Ayew.

Jean-Philippe Mateta held the ball up brilliantly for Ayew in the 66th minute, before the Ghana international rifled the ball across Jordan Pickford into the far corner. The twist came late, but importantly for the hosts, winless in eight games, it came.

Dominic Calvert-Lewis missed a pair of decent chances either side of the break, before substitute Onana made the breakthrough the Goodison crowd craved by heading Dwight McNeil’s corner home at the back post six minutes from time.
