The Colombian was clearly in good enough condition to start for the Toffees against Crystal Palace tonight, and he’s grabbed the opportunity to do so with both hands.

With Everton missing chance after chance and struggling to break down Palace’s resolve, Rodriguez has popped up with a superb weak-footed finish to find the bottom corner of the net.
