Everton score in 94th minute to draw with Tottenham

Richarlison scoresRicharlison has scored nine goals in his last eight games for Tottenham

Jarrad Branthwaite scored an equaliser deep into injury time, following Richarlison’s double, to salvage a point for Everton against Tottenham.

The hosts looked to be heading for a deflating defeat but the despair turned to joy as defender Branthwaite converted at the back post in the 94th minute.

The result momentarily takes the Toffees out of the relegation zone on goal difference, before Luton visit Newcastle later on Saturday.

Before that late leveller, in-form Richarlison looked like returning to haunt his former side with a delightful double in front of the Gwladys Street End.

It took the visitors just four minutes to prise open the Toffees backline as Destiny Udogie pulled the ball back for Richarlison to guide home a lovely volley from eight yards out, and after the hosts drew level, he curled in a sumptuous second from the edge of the box.

Everton had improved in between those goals and Dominic Calvert-Lewin nodded over the crossbar before the striker’s header from close range flicked in off Jack Harrison for the leveller.

Sean Dyche’s side went in search for another equaliser and substitute Youssef Chermiti came close late on before Branthwaite bundled in to bring much-needed relief.

More to follow.
