Michael Olise also turned the midfield in the Eagles’ favour whereas Everton struggled throughout the game and ended up with a tough loss. Crystal Palace FC has now qualified for the semi-finals and will face the winners of Liverpool FC and Nottingham Forest or Chelsea FC, as the draw will be decided later on.
