Everton snatched a late 1-1 draw with Wolves thanks to Yerry Mina’s stoppage-time goal that kept their hopes of staying in the Premier League alive.
The Toffees were trailing to Hee-Chan Hwang’s first-half strike (34) after a brilliant counter-attack from Adama Traore, and they also lost their star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin to another injury before the break.
But they refused to give up and were rewarded in the 99th minute when Mina tapped in from close range to move Everton two points above the relegation zone with one game left.
The result puts some pressure on their fellow strugglers Leicester, Leeds and Nottingham Forest, who all play later this weekend. Everton will still need to get a positive result against Bournemouth on the final day, but they have given themselves a lifeline in the fight for survival.
Wolves had a chance to take an early lead when Nelson Semedo’s cross found Pablo Sarabia, but he failed to connect properly. Everton then created some opportunities of their own, with Calvert-Lewin hitting the side netting and then heading over from an Alex Iwobi delivery.
