Everton 1-1 Southampton: Richarlison rescues struggling Toffees against Saints
Brazilian scored late in the first half to earn a point for the blues against dominant Southampton side
Everton earned a hard-fought point against the much better opposition in Southampton who feel they should have left the Goodison Park with the victory.
The Saints could have easily lead Everton by 3 goals before half time, Stuart Armstrong thought he gave his team an early lead against the blues when he finished from a close range when his celebration was cut short for an offside. Southampton skipper James Ward Prowse had the opportunity to give them the lead in the 28th minute when they were awarded a penalty after a foul from Andre Gomes but he hit the crossbar and sending the ball into the Gwladys Street End.
Southampton finally break the deadlock when their top scorer Danny Ings rounded Everton keeper Jordan Pickford to score his 19th Premier League goal of the season.
Richarlison equalised for Carlo Ancelotti’s side two minutes before the halftime when he lifted the ball over Alex McCarthy to score his 14th goal in all competitions after a superb pass from Lucas Digne.
