Everton relegation scare end with Wolves 1-1 draw

On Saturday, Everton, who are in danger of being relegated from the Premier League, earned a valuable point at Wolverhampton Wanderers by drawing 1-1. Yerry Mina scored the equalizer in the 99th minute.

Adama Traore, a winger for Wolves, carried the ball from the outskirts of his own box before his effort was deflected into Hwang Hee-Chan’s path. Hwang Hee-Chan finished easily for his fourth goal of the season.

But Wolves goalkeeper Dan Bentley, who looked uneasy under the high ball throughout the game, failed to gather a cross from deep, and center back Mina saved the day for the visitors.

After nine minutes of stoppage time had been extended, it was Michael Keane’s turn to pass low for Mina to whisk the ball into the net with practically the final kick of the game.

The outcome of Leeds United and Leicester City will be closely watched by Everton, who are two points above the relegation zone but have now played a game more than their rivals. Everton may conceivably be in the bottom three heading into their last match at home against Bournemouth on Sunday.

“It’s fantastic for our faith. A point is better than zero, albeit we would have like to win tonight,” Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford told the BBC. “We demonstrated moral courage by persevering. That ambition and character ought to be enormous.

I think our possession was a little sloppy; we can do better. That needs to be cleaned up since I thought we had it under control. Before they took a 1-0 lead, we had a few decent chances.

Everton’s growing injury woes have not helped their cause; in the first half at Wolves, they lost right back Nathan Patterson and, more significantly, forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Everton’s struggle to avoid relegation this season is in part owing to Calvert-Lewin’s ongoing ailments, but they also may not have any senior left- or right-backs available for the key match against Bournemouth.
