There are times when a manager can seem a genius for his substitutions and Marco Silva certainly finished this game, which seems pretty smart.
At 82 minutes he sent Ademola Lookman and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. In 87 minutes I was celebrating as the couple combined to open the score and raise the roof of Goodison Park.
Silva's changes were in search of victory and his team responded by pressing high to create space for Lookman to produce a fine cross in which Calvert-Lewin got up to enter.

Two minutes later, the first substitute of Silva put the gloss on the victory. The authorization of Michael Keane put Cenk Tosun in a race with Mamadou Sakho and the Turkish forward won comfortably, controlling the ball excellently and then achieved a final between the legs of Wayne Hennessey.
So it's another victory to strengthen the belief that Silva will get Everton where he wants to be, even if this particular result could have been defeated just as easily.
It could have been another game in which the influence of Wilfried Zaha brought three points to his team, but Luka Milivojevic rejected the penalty won by the best Crystal Palace player with the scores at 0-0. Roy Hodgson threw his bottle to the ground when Jordan Pickford saved and it turned out to be a moment of sliding doors.
Luka Milivojevic went straight into the middle with his penalty after Wilfried Zaha was knocked down in the penalty area.

Palace received the penalty after Zaha (right) was raped by Seamus Coleman in the second half on Sunday afternoon.
Zaha passed a late fitness test to play and Everton certainly began to examine whether his hamstring injury recovered in international service was completely cured.
The instrumental player for everything Palace Do did fouls four times in the first half and when the last one was in Hodgson, he blew himself up before the fourth official.
Kurt Zouma had traversed Zaha's back, but Anthony Taylor kept his cards in his pocket. Of the four offenders, only Idrissa Gueye was booked, for having pulled Zaha while it broke, so it seems that his request to the officials for further protection has not yet been accepted.
The lack of Zouma's 35th minute, a cumbersome act rather than a malicious one, gave Luka Milivojevic a shot-dead opportunity and the Palace captain threw an excellent free kick that traveled low and bounced right in front of Jordan Pickford, so that the Everton goalkeeper pushed the post was well measured

From the deep corner of Andros Townsend, James Tomkins nodded and Cheikhou Kouyate stretched his 6 feet 3 inches in height with a giant leap to head towards the goal. The bow of the ball was too high for Pickford's outstretched arm, but it was not too low to prevent the bar and Everton from bouncing behind.
At that point Silva's side had been in charge. Andre Gomes, who made his Everton debut after signing a loan from Barcelona with a hamstring problem, was adding extra creativity from central midfield and Seamus Coleman, who returned to the team after missing six weeks , was giving his usual push on the right.
It was from that avenue that Everton's best chance of the half came in the 28th minute. Gylfi Sigurdsson picked up an abrupt pass from Idrissa Gueye, walked over to Coleman and kept running towards the box. Coleman found him pulled back and Sigurdsson adjusted his feet elegantly to hold an end to the top corner, only for Wayne Hennessey to make a good save.
Richarlison then put a header from the corner of Lucas Digne and Sigurdsson scored from 20 yards, but dragged his shot out.

But the threat of Zaha always rose and, at the time, his quick feet put Palace in penalty. Coleman could not resist the temptation to try a tackle when Zaha made his way to the box, but it was too slow a moment and he cut off his opponent's standing leg just as he cut the ball. Everton protested energetically, and the contact did not have a big impact, but it was enough for Zaha to fall and Taylor had made the right call. This was not a dive.
Unfortunately for Palace, it seems that Milivojevic did not see the shooting of England's World Cup against Columbia. If I had, I would have known that you are going in half against Pickford at your own risk.
Carlos Bacca was frustrated by the strong arm of Pickford in Moscow and here Milovejevic discovered that the goalkeeper of England can react with the same speed with the feet. Pickford fired his leg and the ball extended up and back. He celebrated with as much enthusiasm as in Russia.
Two minutes later it was Hennessey's turn to save with her legs. Everton made a forceful move with Gomes making a direct pass to Sigurdsson, who did the same to leave Theo Walcott clear. But the end of Walcott was too direct and a great opportunity passed.
