Injury time Blues too much for Spurs

Everton 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

What a thrilling end to a fantastic Premier League match. You really can not beat the feeling of an injury time winner and to come from behind in stoppage time, it is often these matches that make the difference between Champions and Runners Up and in the case of Everton, Champions League and Europa League!!!


In fairness, Everton should have been out of sight in a first half they dominated. Poor finishing and disappointing delivery, meant that the sides went into the half time interval all square.

The second half failed to live up to the first until Spurs snatched a fortunate lead through a deflected shot from the American midfielder, Clint Dempsey. This brought the Everton management team to life, if not immediately the team on the pitch with Greek striker Vellios sent on to rescue a point.

With the game drifting to what seemed like a fortunate three points, poor defending from the Londoners left Seamus Coleman with acres of room in the penalty box and the Irishman expertly picked out the onrushing Pienaar to head home against his former club. The Goodison crowd sighed in universal relief, with the teams unbeaten home record protected. However, on this occasion more was to follow.

A hopeful ball into the box from the impressive Gibson, landed at the feet of substitute Vellios who in attempting a dramatic overhead kick, guided the ball into the path of Jelavic, who fired the ball into the bottom corner of the Spurs goal with a trademark first time finish. Goodison was rocking, Jelavic was pumping and the three points and fourth spot was safely in the bag.
