JULIAN Speroni hailed Crystal Palace's win at Everton on Sunday and believes they were good value in the end despite a late rally from the hosts. It was a similar scenario to what happened in April between the two clubs, producing a five-goal thriller on Merseyside. And the shot-stopper was delighted for Yannick Bolasie, who finally grabbed his first Premier League goal to put the Eagles 3-1 up. "Yannick had chances for us, he played really, really well and to score was the icing on the cake for him," Speroni told the Advertiser. "He deserved that goal. He was desperate to score his first Premier League goal. "It was a fantastic win and I thought we deserved it. We had a lot of chances and we could have actually scored four or five, so we're really pleased. "We knew Everton would start well, they're a great team and we knew they were going to keep the ball and create. "They have players with great movement who can create something out of nothing, and I tried to make myself big for Lukaku's goal it had pace and placement. "But credit to the whole of our team with the build-up, we were solid, recovered the ball and played on the counter. "We could have had one at the end with Adlene Guedioura too but he couldn't put it away. It could have been 4-2 in the end. "We knew they would come on to us. It was very similar to last season when we went 3-1 up and they threw everything at us. "That is normal though. When your team is at home and losing, they will try to do all they can."
