EPL: 10-man Everton hold out for point at Palace

Everton escaped with a point from a lacklustre goalless draw with Crystal Palace after midfielder James McCarthy was sent off at Selhurst Park on Wednesday.

McCarthy was dismissed for a second yellow card in the 52nd minute of a possible FA Cup final rehearsal following a clumsy collision with Yannick Bolasie after being booked for a heavy challenge on Yohan Cabaye.

Everton, who will meet Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals, came closest to scoring when Ross Barkley's shot bounced off the top of the bar but could not stop their winless league run stretching to five matches.

Palace, who meet Watford in the Cup semis, had more possession after McCarthy went off, but were happy to settle for a point in their third match unbeaten after ending a 13-match winless streak against Norwich City on Saturday.
