Everton struggles to draw with last-place Crystal Palace

Everton struggles to draw with last-place Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace languish at the bottom of the English Premier League table with five points from 12 games and will welcome Stoke City to Selhurst Park for their next league outing on November 25.

Gylfi Siggurdsson played in striker Oumar Niasse after a mistake from Scott Dann, and he punished them with a calm finish.

And after the game, Hodgson couldn't hide his disappointment at not getting three vital points: "It was two points lost, not thrown away".

Country Legend Mel Tillis Dies at 85
But rather than attempting to disguise it, Tillis used the speech impediment as one of the trademarks of his act. Among the many honors bestowed on Tillis, President Barack Obama awarded him the National Medal of Arts in 2012.

He said: "The first goal for Everton was to say the least softly given and the other goal we gave them and in the mean time it was all one-way traffic".

"The main thing is that we didn't lose because that would have killed a lot of people's confidence today". Picking up points every game is going to be a big thing for us.

The Eagles twice took the lead in a wild first half with James McArthur giving Palace the lead less than a minute in but Leighton Baines soon equalized from the penalty spot.

Tsunami Warning After Massive Earthquake Near Vanuatu And New Caledonia

"We weren't good enough at the start of the season but the players are determined to turn it around".

The Toffees have been without a manager since they parted ways with Ronald Koeman following their 5-2 Premier League defeat against Arsenal last month.

Sigurdsson added: "The gaffer's been doing really well". He's been getting us fitter and he's turning it around. The Senegalese forward came so close to joining Palace on Transfer Deadline Day back in the summer and came back to haunt them. "We just need to move on to the next game". He tells us that he has belief in us and we're good enough.
