Richarlison makes amends for two sitters with injury-time equaliser to boost survival bid

RICHARLISON grabbed a dramatic injury-time equaliser after missing two sitters to earn a crucial Everton point against Leicester.

The Brazilian striker somehow stabbed wide of Kasper Schmeichel’s goal with the whole frame to aim at in the first half.

And then he glanced a free header from six yards wide in the closing stages.

But he made amends with a deflected strike in the second minute of injury time against Leicester at Goodison Park.

Leicester took the lead through Harvey Barnes on five minutes.

James Maddison did well down the right and his low cross was played on by a combination of Kelechi Iheanacho and Yerry Mina.

And it fell kindly for Barnes to tuck into the bottom corner.

Maddison had chances to add a second for the Foxes, who played a ‘midweek’ team amid their fixture congestion.

And they were made to pay for failing to get another as Richarlison struck late.

The draw leaves Everton 17th, but now four points clear of Burnley with seven games to go.
