EPL: Everton held to goalless draw at Crystal Palace
Coming into the match on the back of four wins in their last five league games, including a 4-0 victory over Manchester United last time out, Everton had much the better of the action in the first half.
The visitors, however, failed to convert from their 11 shots at goal.
After the break, the visitors continued to press with Dominic Calvert-Lewin side netting.
Everton went even closer in the 54th minute, but Bernard’s powerful effort came off the crossbar.
Palace goalkeeper, Vicente Guaita, then had to be at his best to deny substitute Cenk Tosun, while the hosts offered very little as an attacking force.
But they saw out the draw which means they have won just four times at home in the league this season.
