MATCH HIGHLIGHTS: EVERTON 3-1 C PALACE
EVERTON 3-1 C PALACE
Davies is hauled to the ground by Milivojevic and that will do. After last week's no-show, Everton put on a show.
Gylfi Sigurdsson opened the scoring just 45 seconds into the second-half before Oumar Niasse stretched the lead five minutes later.
Tom Davies provided the crowning glory before a Luka Milivojevic penalty gave Palace late hope, but the three points stay on Merseyside.
90+2: Everton are off to the Middle East next week and it's always better for teams when they head off after a victory. Pickford will take his time over this goal-kick.
90+1: This result would take Everton onto 34 points and just give them that bit of breathing space on the teams below them. With what the club have spent, the home fans are entitled to demanding a little bit more than that.
90: We're into three added minutes at Goodison Park as Davies takes the ball into the corner to run down the clock.
88: Williams comes out to meet McArthur with a crunching challenge before he looks to set off Niasse. He collides with Tomkins and then squares up to the defender.
Tomkins feels Niasse left his studs in. The home fans respond to the striker's endeavour by crying his name as Rooney slides in to deny Sorloth. Everton may have weathered the Palace storm.
85: Everton look to re-establish that three-goal lead as Sigurdsson's free-kick is tipped around for a corner by Hennessey with Keane lurking. Benteke clears at the near post.
GOAL! EVERTON 3-1 C PALACE (Milivojevic pen, 83)
Palace are back in it as Luka Milivojevic fires his right-footed penalty to the right of Pickford and into the net. The Everton stopper went the right way but he couldn't keep out the venomous shot.
EVERTON 3-0 C PALACE
83: PENALTY PALACE!
Everton fail to clear Cabaye's corner and as Benteke looks to acrobatically fire towards goal, Williams has his arms up and the ball strikes his right hand!
82: SAVE! Palace will look to catch Everton out after that unsavoury incident as Van Anholt flashes a shot at goal that is turned around the post by Pickford.
80: SUB! Schneiderlin comes on for Gueye and it's to boos from large sections of the home crowd. The fans clearly feel he's not giving enough for the shirt.
79: Allardcye will be determined for his side to keep a clean sheet now against his former employers as Williams just eases Benteke off the ball. Morgan Schneiderlin is just preparing himself to come on. There are whistles from a small group of home supporters.
EVERTON 3-0 C PALACE
77: Davies has deserved that goal for his energy today and he was in the right place to tap in his first goal of the season.
Van Aanholt has a pop from 30 yards that loops harmlessly over the bar. This scoreline shows that there's still work to be done for Crystal Palace.
GOAL! EVERTON 3-0 C PALACE (Davies, 76)
Everton crown this convincing second-half performance as Kenny's low cross is fired goalwards by Niasse... Hennessey makes the save but Sigurdsson's cut-back is guided home by Tom Davies. It's a poacher's finish from the youngster!
EVERTON 2-0 C PALACE
74: Walcott gets a round of applause for helping out Kenny and denying Sorloth the chance to get a ball into the box.
Sorloth does get a cross in moments later that finds Ward but his shot is deflected behind off Benteke. Moss awards the corner but Everton clear their lines.
71: Rooney said this week he knew he was the best player at the club when he was 16, and he's been Everton's best player today aged 32. He's conducted things in midfield.
70: Milivojevic gets the touch from Sigurdsson's corner to deny Rooney and clear.
69: Palace have seen more of the ball this second half but it is Everton who have scored both goals as Williams does well to get out of a tight spot before Fosu-Mensah presents the hosts with a corner from a hurried clearance down the other end.
They'll be in no rush to take this.
68: BOOKED! Walcott is booked for a pretty cynical foul on Fosu-Mensah.
67: Palace are on top at the moment and you feel they need to score in this phase as Williams heads the ball beyond for a corner.
Kenny scrambles the ball clear from Cabaye's delivery.
66: SAVE! Excellent move from Palace as a long diagonal finds Van Aanholt on the left and his cross is met well with the head of Sorloth and Pickford does well to turn the effort around for a corner.
65: Theo Walcott is frustrated as a few times he's been on the break before he's been illegally halted in his stride. Milivojevic the culprit this time.
63: McArthur's deep ball is gathered at the second attempt by Pickford. He is grateful there was no Palace player underneath him as he juggled with the ball before holding his knee.
62: Palace come forward down the right with Townsend and his cross is blocked by Martina. The winger claims the ball hits Martina's hand but he's not getting a penalty for that.
59: OVER! Van Aanholt gets forward from his left-back berth and combines well with Sorloth before Andros Townsend slices his effort over from the edge of the box. They've got half an hour to turn this one around.
55: Two Everton goals in five and a half minutes has changed the complexion of this game and Palace must now come out of their shell.
CHANCE! Sorloth combines well with Cabaye before the cross towards Benteke is perfect... he edges Kenny off the ball but his looped header is inches wide of Pickford's left-hand post. The Everton 'keeper was stood watching that. A warning for Everton.
54: BOOKED! Good defensive work from Theo Walcott as he nicks the ball off Van Aanholt before he fouls Walcott and this time, Moss shows the Dutchman a yellow card.
53: Palace are rocking as good movement from Davies enables Walcott to drive at the defence of the visitors but Tomkins manages to scramble the ball clear.
GOAL! EVERTON 2-0 C PALACE (Niasse, 51)
Everton double their lead as Martina picks up the loose ball inside the box on the right, and Van Aanholt has totally switched off, leaving Oumar Niasse unmarked to head home the cross and give Everton a two-goal advantage.
EVERTON 1-0 C PALACE
50: Palace have responded well as Sorloth fouls Keane before Cabaye's shot is blocked. Rooney was back there defending for the hosts.
49: Everton have lost just one of seven games they have taken the lead in this season, and Sigurdsson's sixth goal of the campaign has them in front. How will Palace respond?
GOAL! EVERTON 1-0 C PALACE (Sigurdsson, 46)
The second-half is just 45 seconds old and in the blink of an eye, Everton have hit the front as Gylfi Sigurdsson receives Niasse's knock-down and takes a fine touch on the edge of the box and fires a shot that deflects off Tomkins and flies beyond Hennessey!
EVERTON 0-0 C PALACE
46: Palace get us back up and running for the second half.
Everton have made a substitution at half-time with Jonjoe Kenny replacing Seamus Coleman. Let's just hope that's a precaution.
Wolves are 2-0 up and Derby lead 1-0, so the Super Boost currently depends on Everton if you were on the 10/1 treble pre-match. If you missed out, you can still get involved in-play with 9/4 now available.

Walcott is pulled over by Sorloth to allow Everton one last attack before half-time. Moss blows his whistle as Williams launches it long. That'll do for the first 45 minutes.
Idrissa Gueye has gone closest to breaking the deadlock but Wayne Hennessey was equal to his low shot from the edge of the box.
Palace have defended resolutely so far with their best chance falling to Yohan Cabaye on the halfway line following a mix-up between Jordan Pickford and Eliaquim Mangala but the French midfielder couldn't find the target.
45+1: WIDE! Palace on the attack after a mistake by Seamus Coleman as Sorloth puts a delightful ball in for Benteke but he just can't guide his header on target with McArthur sliding in at the far post.
45: We're heading into two additional minutes at Goodison Park.
44: SUB! Mangala tries to run it off but he's gone down now and that's the end of his afternoon. Ashley Williams is stripped off and ready to go.
42: Gueye has just dropped into the centre of defence as Mangala looks to be running OK.
Everton are down to 10 for the time being as Davies is taken out by Milivojevic. Benteke is holding his face after feeling the arm of Keane but it was the ball that hit him!
40: Mangala is in some pain inside the Palace six-yard box after Palace's Tomkins makes another brilliant interception from Niasse's cross from the left. He's holding his right knee and now receives treatment from the club physio.
The defender collided into Hennessey and it doesn't look good at all.
38: OFFSIDE! Benteke bundles the ball into the net as he goes to meet the hooked ball from Cabaye but Eddie Smart's flag is up for offside.
He was fractionally ahead of the last defender and he also barged into Pickford, but the stopper did slightly spill the ball.
37: SHOT! Out of the blue, it's a really good strike from Cabaye as he catches a right-foot shot that bounces in front of Pickford to force the keeper to scoop the ball wide!
36: Rooney has impressed so far as he scampers back to help the rusty Mangala dispossess Townsend. Here come Everton again as Sigurdsson's enticing low ball is just deflected away from Niasse.
35: Everton's patient approach nearly pays off as Walcott gets to the byline and after Niasse out-muscles Tomkins, Davies' attempt to pass the ball into the net is blocked by Fosu-Mensah.
33: Another half-cooked Palace counter-attack through Patrick van Aanholt is snuffed out by Coleman down the right but Everton's possession is all in their own half and not threatening the visitors.
29: BLOCK! It's deja-vu as Benteke blocks Rooney's curled shot at the expense of a corner.
The home supporters rise to their feet to remember Anthony Condron, a lifelong Blue who passed away this week at the age of 29 after a bar incident in the city centre.
28: More excellent play from the lively Walcott as he drifts past three players before Fosu-Mensah hauls down the former Arsenal man. Will Rooney fancy it this tie, it's again 25 yards out, centre of the goal.
27: SAVE! Brilliant low ball with pace from Walcott looks to find the on-rushing Sigurdsson but Ward does well to stoop and concede the corner.
It's straight onto the head of Benteke from Sigurdsson's set-piece but Gueye picks up the loose ball, cuts inside Cabaye and forces a save to Hennessey's right!
