Chance Everton! Mirallas does really well to control a high ball on the right hand side of the Palace box - he spins and sends in a snap-shot but it's just over!
32'
Brendan Rogers, who is in the crowd, will have plenty of food for thought from this Palace performance so far. Tight at the back, effective on the break. Still, Everton are looking threatening.
30'
Here's McGeady wide on the left; his cross finds Mirallas, but it's asking too much of him to do anything with it.
29'

20'
Distin tries to feed Mirallas but Dann clears for an Everton corner.
19'
Mariappa gets a cross in from the right, Chamakh can’t control… when the ball comes back to Ledley, he crosses to Jerome who heads over. But the linesman’s flag is up anyway. Sorry – referee’s assistant.
18'
Here come Everton again – McGeady makes his way into the penalty area. His cross comes off Dann… and Palace try to build from the back.
17'

16'
It’s cleared easily by Jerome; Everton throw-in. Here they come again… but Palace break it down and here comes Bolasie… to Ward… who crosses – but Puncheon can’t reach it and it goes out for a goal-kick. First proper signs of life from Palace.

Everton maintaining possession well, but the Eagles’ defence is well-martialled. Deulofeu wins a corner, though.

They can’t capitalize though – Barkley plays in Lukaku, who is fouled. Free-kick Everton.
7'
Now, some possession for Palace at last. Bolasie tries to cross from the left, he wins a throw in instead.
5'
Palace aren’t getting much change out of Everton yet. Deulofeu bursts down the right again, but he’s ushered out for a goal kick.
3'
Nice through-ball to Jerome from Chamakh, but he's just strayed offside.
2’
Deulofeu has a one-two with Lukaku and skips into the box. He sends a cross fizzing across the face of goal… but it goes out for a corner, which comes to nothing.
2'
The corner comes in - it's a free header from McGeady! But it sails just over the bar.
'1
Lovely interplay on Everton's left by the Palace penalty box. Corner to Everton.

We're about to get underway after a round of appreciation for the Hillsborough victims and their families. Tonight’s referee is Andre Marriner. Don’t forget to tweet your thoughts on the game to @Eurosport.com_EN !
19.40
Pulis: “It’s important that we keep focused, keep working and keep playing as well as we did (on Saturday)… let’s talk about everything when we’ve got enough points and we’re in the Premier League next year. That’s the line that we’ve got to reach at the football club in the dressing room and outside the dressing room. Forty points would be nice!”
19.35
The turnaround in the Eagles’ fortunes have seen Tony Pulis’ name brought up more than once in discussions concerning the Manager of the Year award – but the Welshman is keeping his feet firmly on the ground.
19.30
Wins over Chelsea, Cardiff City and Aston Villa have seen the Crystal Palace leap to 12th in the Premier League table, seven points clear of the bottom three. Nevertheless, the Londoners have only picked up 11 points from their 16 games on the road this season, winning just three.
19.25
The Toffees will be aware this is no gimme, though. Boss Roberto Martinez: “For me, (Palace) have the strongest defensive set-up of any team in this division and they are in a great moment of form…to get three straight wins is a significant achievement for any team, and Tony Pulis has got the players very much understanding what they have to do.”
19.20
Since being beaten by Chelsea in February, Everton have won seven straight games, and haven’t lost at home since the Boxing Day reverse to Sunderland – their only home defeat of the season. Another win this evening – which would be their tenth consecutive at Goodison Park – would move them back into fourth place in the Premier League, leapfrogging Arsenal who won at home to West Ham last night.
19.15
Everton’s form has taken a major upturn since being beaten by Chelsea in February; they’ve won seven straight games since then, and haven’t lost at home since the Boxing Day reverse to Sunderland – their only home defeat of the season.
19.10
Everton skipper Phil Jagielka is nearing a return to fitness, but John Stones will continue to deputise this evening; also close to returning are Steven Pienaar and Darron Gibson after a knee injury. Arouna Kone and Brian Oviedo are long-term absentees. Yannick Bolasie passed a late fitness test for Palace after picking up a knock in the Villa game on Saturday, but Kagisho Dikgacoi is out. Marouane Chamakh comes into the starting eleven in his stead.

Yup - it's confirmed I'm afraid, people. The game is off due to strong winds. Ho hum. Those poor Palace fans who've made the trip up to Merseyside... have a peaceful evening, one and all!
