A dramatic late goal from young defender Jarrad Branthwaite secured a vital point for Everton against Tottenham Hotspur at a raucous Goodison Park on Saturday. The Toffees clawed back from two goals down to draw 2-2, momentarily escaping the relegation zone and providing a glimmer of hope in their fight for survival.

Former Everton star Richarlison stole the show in the first half, returning to his old stomping ground with a vengeance. He netted a classy opener in the 4th minute and added another thunderbolt strike in the 68th, silencing the home crowd both times with his respectful refusal to celebrate.

But Everton refused to surrender. They pulled one back through Jack Harrison’s header in the 24th minute, capitalizing on a shaky moment from Tottenham goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario. The Toffees’ persistence paid off in stoppage time when Branthwaite met James Garner’s free-kick at the far post, sending Goodison Park into a frenzy and snatching a share of the spoils.

This result is a lifeline for Everton, who face an uphill battle against relegation. Their fight is further complicated by the looming threat of an additional points deduction for breaching financial regulations. However, Saturday’s performance demonstrated their fighting spirit and ability to dig deep, giving them a much-needed boost in morale.
