MATCH REPORT: WATFORD 2-3 EVERTON

SENSATIONAL TURNAROUND AT VICARAGE ROAD

A ten-men Everton side came from two goals behind to take all three points away from Vicarage Road as Theo Walcott’s last-gasp winner pushed Ancelotti’s men into the top half of the table.

A stylish first Watford goal for Adam Masina and Roberto Pereyra’s well-taken finish had put the Hornets 2-0 in front as half-time approached. But during the added time at the end of the first half, Colombian centre half Yerry Mina managed to score from two corner kicks and level the score.

The stage was then set for Walcott to finish off a flowing Everton counter-attack on 90 minutes, slamming home Moise Kean’s miskick from close range and sealing the win for the Toffeemen.

This turnaround was made all the more impressive by the fact that the Blues had played the last 20 minutes with only ten men after Fabian Delph was controversially sent off for a second bookable offence.

The 3-2 victory sees the Merseysiders climb into 9th position, their highest league position since mid-September, which will seem like a lifetime ago for most Evertonians.
