Everton and Leicester share spoils at Goodison Park

1 min read

Jordan Pickford was at fault as Everton saw their one-goal lead slip to draw with Leicester at Goodison Park.

James Rodriguez produced a moment of magic to give Everton the lead in the 30th-minute, pouncing after Wesley Fofana took a heavy touch and with a sumptuous curling shot from the edge of the penalty area he gave Kasper Schmeichel no chance.

Leicester controlled possession but rarely threatened in their search of an equaliser, as Everton defended resiliently and restricted the visitors to half chances.

However, all their hard work was undone in the 67th-minute when Pickford got a hand to Youri Tielemans’ weak shot but couldn’t keep it out.

The game ebbed and flowed as both sides searched for the winner, but the best chance fell to Everton’s misfiring striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin who headed over from point-blank range.

The result keeps Leicester in third, two points behind leaders Manchester City who have a game in hand. Everton, meanwhile, remain seventh.
