Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace: Christian Benteke cancels out Romelu Lukaku's stunning free-kick as Belgian duo ensure spoils are shared at Goodison
It was battle of the Belgians at Goodison Park on Friday night as a goal apiece from Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke ensured the spoils were shared between Everton and Crystal Palace.
Roberto Di Matteo's first-choice international striker Lukaku opened the scoring with a wonderful first-half free-kick, before Benteke netted his third goal in Palace colours with a wonderful header after the break.
Palace were the better side for much of the second half, but could not break down their Merseyside opponents.
