Everton secured their Premier League status as Dominic Calvert-Lewin's 85th-minute header saw them complete a remarkable second-half comeback from two goals down to clinch a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on a night of high drama and tension at Goodison Park.

Frank Lampard's side grabbed their second shot at safety having lost at home to Brentford on Sunday to preserve their top-flight status for a 69th successive season.

Everton knew they would avoid a first relegation since 1951 with victory against Patrick Vieira's team on Thursday, but they trailed 2-0 at the break after Jean-Philippe Mateta's opener (21) was added to by Jordan Ayew (36).

Michael Keane's instinctive finish sparked the fightback nine minutes into the second half, and after Richarlison had restored parity with his 10th Premier League goal of the season (75), Calvert-Lewin met Demarai Gray's cross five minutes from time to spark bedlam inside Goodison as fans invaded the pitch to celebrate.

There were unsavoury scenes at the full-time whistle as Palace boss Patrick Vieira had an altercation with one supporter. The result means Everton move onto 39 points, four clear of Leeds ahead of their visit to Brentford on Sunday.
