Richarlison’s stoppage-time equalizer earned Everton a 1-1 draw with Leicester at Goodison Park and a priceless point in their battle against relegation.
Harvey Barnes’ fifth-minute strike looked to have condemned the Toffees to a demoralizing third consecutive Premier League defeat.
Richarlison squandered two gilt-edged chances to haul Everton back into contention but, after Leicester passed up countless opportunities to wrap up the victory, the Brazilian more than made amends when his dramatic, late leveler sparked jubilant scenes at a restless Goodison.
The draw sees Everton establish a four-point lead with seven games remaining over relegation rivals Burnley, who host Southampton on Thursday live on Sky Sports, while Leicester stay ninth having seen three points slip away in added time in their previous two league outings.
