LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - Crystal Palace came from behind to cling on for its first Premier League win of the season on Sunday, beating Everton 3-2 at Goodison Park.

Winger Yannick Bolasie was instrumental in his side’s surging second-half performance which he capped with the Eagles’ final goal in the 69th minute.

Romelu Lukaku had given Everton a ninth-minute lead, but Mile Jedinak equalized from the spot and Fraizer Campbell took advantage of an error by Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard to change the game’s course.

Bolasie’s display sealed another fine day for Palace in the blue half of Merseyside after a 3-2 win in April eased relegation fears - despite a nervous finale Sunday after Leighton Baines’ late penalty reduced the deficit.

Lukaku and Phil Jagielka both came close in a frantic finale.
