Howard's Everton suffers costly setback
[AMERICANS ABROAD] The bid of Tim Howard's Everton to finish in the top four of the English Premier League -- and qualify
for the UEFA Champions League -- took a severe hit as it suffered a 3-2 loss at home to Crystal Palace. The defeat ended Everton's seven-game winning streak and string of nine straight victories at
Goodison Park. More important, the Toffees dropped to fifth place, one point behind Arsenal.
The win was the fourth in a row for Palace, which began the season with four points in its
first 11 games but now has 40 points after 34 games and sits safely in 10th place, assured of staying up in the EPL.
Jozy Altidore was back in
Sunderland's 18-player squad for its trip to Manchester City but could only watch from the bench as the last-place Black Cats put a dent into City's title hopes with a 2-2 draw. The result left City
six points behind Liverpool and four behind second-place Chelsea with a game in hand.
