Everton equalise late to deny Spurs and move out of drop zone


Jarrad Branthwaite scored a stoppage-time equaliser to earn Everton a 2-2 draw with Tottenham that moves his team out of the relegation zone.

Richarlison had twice put Spurs in front against his former club in the first half to leave Jack Harrison’s goal appearing to have been in vain. But Sean Dyche’s side conjured up an unlikely point thanks to Branthwaite’s rescue act in the 94th minute.

Everton are now without a win in six Premier League games dating back to before Christmas but this was a precious point to move them above Luton and into 17th. Tottenham remain fourth but missed the chance to move further clear of fifth-placed Aston Villa.
