Here's how the Palace players rated in their 0-0 with Everton.

Vincente Guaita 7 – Had very little to do. The post came to his rescue when Bernard hit the woodwork early in the second half but produced a world class stop to somehow keep out Cenk Tosun late on.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 7– Made some crucial blocks and challenges, as well as causing Everton a few problems at the other end when bursting forward.

Martin Kelly 7 – Did well to head behind a dangerous Gylfi Sigurdsson free-kick. A good afternoon’s work from the ex-Liverpool man.

Scott Dann 7 – Solid. Won plenty of headers and clearances.

Patrick van Aanholt 6 – Gave the ball cheaply away in the second half but quickly made amends with a crucial block to deny Richarlison.

James McArthur 6 – Produced a simple save from Jordan Pickford midway through the first half and hit the side-netting just after the break.

Luka Milivojevic 6 – Booked for an early lunge on Kurt Zouma. Composed on the ball but volleyed over wildly after a good spell of pressure from the hosts.

Cheikhou Kouyate 5 – Not great. Was lucky to escape after giving the ball away early on to set Everton on the attack. Also played in a poor ball into the box when it looked easier to find a team-mate.

Max Meyer 7 – Had a great chance to put Palace ahead inside two minutes but hit the side-netting. Looked lively when on the ball and a threat. Not quite as impressive after the break and was replaced by Townsend but still a decent effort.

Wilfried Zaha 6 – Always Palace’s best outlet but was kept largely quiet by the Toffees.

Christian Benteke 4 – Anonymous in the first half. Never looked like adding to last week’s shock goal at Arsenal. How much is he on a week again? You are being very short changed Mr Parish.


72 Andros Townsend 5 (for Meyer) – Made little difference to Palace’s prospects when he came on.
