Everton lost ground in the race for seventh place in the Premier League as they were held to a goalless draw by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Substitute Cenk Tosun’s brilliant back-heeled effort was saved by Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita in the closing stages, while winger Bernard and left-back Lucas Digne hit the post for Everton in the second half.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin missed opportunities to put them ahead in a lively first half, but was denied by Guaita from close range and failed to hit the target from with Seamus Coleman’s cross.
Palace had chances too, as Max Meyer fired wide early on and James McArthur struck the side-netting during a positive spell for the Eagles after the interval.
The result lifted Everton into eighth in the table, although they are now four points behind Wolves, who won 2-1 at Watford on Saturday.
Palace, who secured their Premier League survival with victory over Arsenal last weekend, remain 12th.
