Read a report and watch highlights from Everton vs Crystal Palace.
Everton fell to a 3-2 loss at home to Crystal Palace that prevented them from reclaiming fourth place from Arsenal in the Premier League.
Victory would have sent Roberto Martinez’s side back into the Champions League places, but they fell behind in the 23rd minute when Marouane Chamakh teed up Jason Puncheon to score.
Second-half goals from Scott Dann and Cameron Jerome completed victory for Tony Pulis’ side, with substitute Steven Naismith and Kevin Mirallas replying in vain for the hosts.
Defeat leaves the Toffees in fifth place, one point below Arsenal, ahead of their home game with Manchester United on Saturday, while Palace have now reached the 40-point mark usually synonymous with survival.
