Liverpool: Everton squandered an opportunity to reclaim fourth place from Arsenal in the Premier League after Crystal Palace ended their seven-game winning run with a 3-2 away victory on Wednesday. Everton were seeking to return to the Champions League places after Arsenal had leapfrogged them by beating West Ham United on Tuesday, but instead they remain in fifth place, a point behind Arsene Wenger's side with four matches to play.

Palace went 2-0 up through goals from Jason Puncheon and Scott Dann either side of half-time, with Cameron Jerome adding a third in the 73rd minute after substitute Steven Naismith had reduced the arrears for the hosts.

Kevin Mirallas clawed a goal back for Everton with four minutes left, but Tony Pulis's Palace would not be denied a victory that took them to the 40-point mark that usually represents safety from relegation.
