Batshuayi leveller denies Everton win

Michy Batshuayi of Crystal Palace scores their first goal during the Premier League match between Everton and Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on April 5, 2021 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Crystal Palace's Michy Batshuayi scored a late equaliser to dent Everton's Champions League qualification hopes.

The substitute latched on to Jeffrey Schlupp's pass and placed the ball beyond Robin Olsen into the bottom corner after 86 minutes.

Returning from injury, Everton's James Rodriguez had given the Toffees a deserved lead with a superb right-footed strike in the 56th minute.

The result all but guarantees safety for Palace, who are 12 points clear of the bottom three with eight games remaining.

Everton are four points off fourth-placed Chelsea, having played one game fewer.
