Everton staged a remarkable comeback with a 2-2 draw against Tottenham


Arrad Branthwaite's 94th-minute goal salvaged a crucial point and lifted the Toffees out of the relegation zone in a dramatic encounter on Saturday.

Richarlison, making his return to Goodison Park, appeared to put Spurs on track for a comeback, scoring twice. However, Ange Postecoglou's side was denied victory when Branthwaite connected with a free-kick at the far post, boosting Everton's hopes of avoiding relegation.

Despite the draw, Tottenham, still in fourth place, now faces the risk of being overtaken by Aston Villa. Reflecting on the match, Postecoglou acknowledged the challenges of playing at Goodison Park, stating, "It’s obviously never going to be an easy game here. You have to deal with a fair bit, but most of the time we handled it ok. Unfortunately, we couldn’t hold out."

Richarlison, who has been a vital attacking force for Everton, scoring nine times in the team’s last eight Premier League matches, offered no celebrations for his goals and even apologized to the home supporters.

The Everton faithful directed their frustration towards the Premier League due to a 10-point deduction imposed on the club for financial rule violations at the end of the 2021/22 season, putting them in a relegation battle. Everton may face further penalties as they confront another charge of exceeding profit and sustainability limits for the previous season. Supporters displayed placards and chants criticizing the league's leadership before kickoff and during the 10th minute of the match. Everton's appeal against the severe sporting sanction, considered the harshest in Premier League history, was heard this week, with a verdict expected by mid-month.
