Romelu Lukaku gave Everton the perfect start just two minutes into the match with a goal from close range, after Steven Naismith was able to get in behind the Palace backline and fire across goal.
The striker had to go off through injury later on, however, meaning that Jordan Mutch was brought on for his Palace debut.
Jason Puncheon picked up the ball 40 yards from goal before pushing forward and firing towards goal, but Joel was equal to the impressive drive and saved down low to keep his side in front before half time.
