Everton secured a thrilling 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, thanks to a late goal from Idrissa Gueye. This win marked their fourth away victory in five matches across all competitions. Gueye scored his first league goal since 2018, receiving a pass from Abdoulaye Doucoure and finding the corner of the net to give Everton the lead for the third time in the game. The match started with Vitaliy Mykolenko putting Everton ahead within 52 seconds, but Eberechi Eze equalized for Crystal Palace with a penalty just five minutes later. Doucoure then put Everton ahead again in the second half, but a defensive error allowed Odsonne Edouard to level the scores. Despite having to defend for most of the game, Everton’s performance showcased the team’s fighting spirit and determination. Manager Sean Dyche expressed his satisfaction with the team’s progress, stating that while there is room for improvement, their mentality and willingness to win games are continuously improving. Everton took an early lead through Mykolenko’s header from a cross by Jack Harrison, making it two goals in two games for the left back. In fact, Everton holds the record for the most goals scored in the opening minute of a Premier League game, with 13. Crystal Palace quickly equalized with a penalty converted by Eze, who recently signed a new contract. Everton regained the lead in the second half when Doucoure capitalized on a rebound from Mykolenko’s volley. Despite Palace dominating possession and creating chances, they were unable to find an equalizer until Tarkowski’s mistake allowed Edouard to score. However, Gueye had the final say with his late goal, securing the victory for Everton. Dyche emphasized the team’s ability to find ways to win and expressed optimism about the team’s growth and changing narrative.
