Richarlison scored the equalizer with literally the last kick of the game to help Everton produce one of the close football results of the weekend in the Premier League. Harvey Barnes opened the scoring for the visitors in the fifth minute before Richarlison equalized in stoppage time. The Brazilian had earlier missed two golden chances to score the equalizer.

Everton manager Frank Lampard: “A late goal that gets you a draw feels a real positive. That is something we want to change. Something we haven’t been able to do well enough in my time here is drawn games when we are either are not playing as well as we should do, and there have been games recent where are performances were good and we got nothing. As long as we stay in games and keep fighting in games then anything is possible. It’s a small run but it is the bounce of coming off a good result against Manchester United to get another point on the board.”
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: “I thought performance-wise we were excellent. Once we get into the second half we just need a wee bit more composure in the final third of the pitch to close the game out. At 1-0, you always have to go right to the end and unfortunately, just at the end, we conceded the goal. You think of the great result Everton had here 11 days ago (beating Manchester United); this is our fourth game in that period. The level the players played at was a really high level. Overall, I’m delighted with how we played.”
