🔵 Everton avoid relegation after dramatic comeback win over Crystal Palace

Everton confirmed their Premier League status for the 2022/23 season after their dramatic 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace on Thursday night.

The Toffees showed a massive fight from two behind to beat the Eagles, sparking happy celebrations after the final whistle in crowded Goodison Park.

The result puts them four points ahead of 18th-placed Leeds United, with one game remaining.

In a two-half game, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew Palace gave Palace a 2-0 lead before the break, but Frank Lampard’s side turned the match upside down in the second half.

First, Michael Kane gave the hosts a way back into the match with a good shot in the 54th minute, before Richarlison equalized 15 minutes before the end of the match.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin then scored the winning goal five minutes before the end of time, pausing the match after fans stormed the pitch.

Next up for Everton is an away game against Arsenal, a match Arsenal must win to have any realistic chance of playing Champions League football next season.

As it stands, the battle for survival is now between Burnley, who drew 1-1 with Aston Villa, and Leeds United.

Clarett has a better goal difference compared to West Yorkshire before the end of the season.

Leeds travel to Brentford for their last game, while Burnley host Newcastle United.
