Everton fans swarmed the Goodison Park pitch in huge numbers on Thursday evening when Dominic Calvert-Lewin completed a miraculous comeback against Crystal Palace. Frank Lampard’s men found themselves two goals down by half time, but a second-half surge saw them snatch the three points and mathematically secure their Premier League safety in dramatic fashion.

Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew put Palace two the good on Merseyside, which made it look as though Everton would be fighting for survival right up until the final day. A daunting visit to Arsenal was looming large for Lampard’s side, and he evidently delivered a rousing half-time team talk. 

After the break goals from Michael Keane, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin completed a stunning fightback, and those in attendance could hardly contain their jubilation. When Calvert-Lewin scored the third with five minutes to play in normal time, clusters of fans ran onto the pitch in celebration. 

The striker himself was visibly fuming with the supporters, ushering them back to their seats so that the match could resume and the Toffees could continue fighting for the three points. And they did just that, seeing out five minutes of stoppage time to topple Vieira’s side and go four points clear of relegation danger, leading to another pitch invasion at full time. 

Lampard and co can now rest up and enjoy their final-day trip to north London while Burnley and Leeds fight among themselves. The Clarets drew at Aston Villa on Thursday which leaves them clear of the relegation zone on goal difference.
