Yerry Mina’s equaliser against Wolves raises Everton hopes of Premier League survival


Yerry Mina’s 99th-minute equaliser saw Everton draw 1-1 with Wolves and give themselves a fighting chance of Premier League survival.

With the Toffees’ relegation rivals Leicester, Leeds and Nottingham Forest playing later in the weekend, Everton knew any result would turn the pressure back on the other sides scrapping to avoid the drop.

It looked like they were heading for defeat when, with almost the final kick of the game, Mina poked home into an empty net to move Everton two points clear of the drop zone with one game to play.

There will be concerns over key man Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who was taken off injured once again at the end of the first half. He was also substituted at half time against Manchester City last weekend with a groin strain, and will be a doubt for the crucial final day match against Bournemouth.
