What a turnaround, as we come from behind to beat Everton 3-2
Updated: May 16, 2022
When the boys arrived at Goodison Park they were greeted by an amazing atmosphere generated by a passionate home crowd as a win for Everton would have ensured their Premier League survival. Everton started well and had a few chances but in the 10th minute there was a major communication cock-up between two Bees’ players leading to a free kick. The ball was whipped in to the near post and it eventually ended up in the back of the net. Eight minutes later Toney broke away and was brought down by their centre-half. As he was their last outfield player apart from their keeper it was a straight red card. Everton were down to 10-men and in the 37th minute a Toney cross reached Wissa whose shot was deflected in as an own-goal and we were level. Despite being a man down, Everton retook the lead with a penalty in the second minute of added on time in the first half. In the second half we switched to a back three and were on top and in the 62nd minute from an Eriksen corner Wissa equalised with a near post looping header. Ninety seconds later we were in front. A Norgaard cross and a great Henry header. Everton’s miseries went from bad to worse when in the 88th minute they had another player sent off for a two-footed tackle on Henry. Then Eriksen had a shot cleared off the line, but the last few minutes were a bit nervy. We had more possession, more shots (and more on target) so deserved the victory.
