Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace: Toffees' European hopes dented as Michy Batshuayi snatches a dramatic late equaliser at Goodison Park after James Rodriguez had fired the hosts ahead

Unsettled Crystal Palace striker Michy Batshuayi forcefully made his point to manager Roy Hodgson as Everton’s Goodison Park blues continued to derail their European aspirations.

Batshuayi, who said on international duty he felt more “trust” from his Belgium boss Roberto Martinez than Hodgson, was given just six minutes as a late substitute to try and save Palace, and only needed two of them as he coolly converted Jeffrey Schlupp’s pass into the corner.

While a draw virtually guarantees another season of Premier League football in south London, it represented another dreadful home result for Everton who had gone ahead through the returning James Rodriguez and saw other chances squandered by misfiring strikers Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison.
