Frank Lampard’s Toffees were actually in shape after a messed up season and was being mentioned over the line, but had missed the safe relegation last weekend despite the break against FC Brentford (2: 3).

This should now follow in the catch -up game of the 33rd match day against Crystal Palace, but Lampard had to do without Branthwaite and Rondon, both of whom had flown from the pitch. Keane returned to central defense.

Before the game, the fans in Goodison Park made their team hot, because it was clear: a victory and the relegation would be perfect. Accordingly, Everton began the greatest possibility of Richarlison, who raised a free kick to the crossbar (18th).

MATETA too free – Ayew increased

A really sophisticated offensive concept was only partially recognizable, instead the guests gradually became better and did not take the lead undeservedly: The ex-Mainz Mateta appeared freely on the five after a free kick (21st).

Afterwards Everton looked extremely unsettled and always brought himself to Bredouille. So also in minute 36: Coleman failed an assumption, Mateta countered and, after Pickford’s unfortunate defense campaigns, Ayew increased to 2: 0 (36.) before the break. Ayew of all people: The Toffees had demanded two minutes earlier after the Ghanaer’s Gordon, vehemently started, unsuccessfully red.

Keane shortened, Richarlison compensates

Lampard had to come up with something for the second round and brought Alli for André Gomes, who had missed creativity in the first section. The hosts immediately started a little more lively and shortened – even according to a standard. Holgate took a long ball from the center line by head for Keane, which put it in the long corner (54.).

This also made the fans of FC Everton again loudly whip their team forward. And this now had some upper water, but had to rely on Pickford, which parried against Mateta (65.). And very little happened to the front despite more possession of the ball, but if something happened, it crashed: A quarter of an hour before the end, Richarlison poked the ball over the line (75.).

Calvert-Lewin lets the Goodison Park shake

So it was clear: only one goal and FC Everton would have the premature relegation. And that should also be granted the fans in Goodison Park! Five minutes before the end, Calvert-Lewin headed a free kick from Gray in the net (85th) and thus caused an early storm that the folders had to get under control before the seven-minute injury time started. This survived of the Dino of the Premier League – no club in England has more prime minister League than the Toffees on their belt – and thus celebrated the relegation after a spectacular catch -up.

The last matchday of this Premier League season will take place on Sunday at 5 p.m. FC Everton is then a guest at Arsenal, Crystal Palace welcomes Manchester United.
