Christian Benteke scored a goal (one shot on target) in Crystal Palace's entertaining and controversial 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Friday.
Benteke was the hero for Crystal Palace for the second match in a row. The Belgian international leveled the score when he headed in a cross from Joel Ward in the 50th minute, which was his third goal in five appearances since moving to Palace. The Eagles continued to press Everton and looked to have went ahead when Damien Delaney converted a header in the 75th minute. However, following a discussion between the two officials, it was decided the effort should not stand as the assistant's flag went up on the goal. The result of the match pushed Palace to 7th in the table and saw Benteke score his fifth goal in six career matches against the Toffees. Sep 30 - 5:44 PM
