Everton have had an up-and-down season, with many believing they would be relegated tonight, but they have avoided it. Meanwhile, Frank Lampard and his team set a Premier League record with their hard-fought victory today.
Everton struggled in the first half, falling behind by two goals. Crystal Palace finished the first period with total control after Jean Philippe Matieta gave the visitors the lead in the 21st minute and Jordan Ayew doubled it in the 36th minute.
Everton staged and completed a comeback in the same half, as Michael Keane, Richalison, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin ensured the game ended 3-2 in their favor, helping them secure a place in the Premier League next season.
Prior to tonight, Everton had never won a Premier League game after trailing by two or more goals at halftime. However, during Frank Lampard's reign, they broke the record by scoring all three of their goals in the second half, ensuring Premier League survival in the process.
Michael Keane scored in the 54th minute, as a reminder. In the 75th minute, Richalison scored. Calvert Lewin scored the game-winning goal in the 85th minute. Nonetheless, Frank Lampard's team has moved four points clear of the relegation zone.
Looking at how the ex-Chelsea manager began his tenure with the Merseyside club, one could conclude that he's done a good job so far. And he's looking forward to breaking more records with them next season.
Lampard was relieved and overjoyed at full-time because he knew he would lose his job if they were relegated, but now the club management will set him other goals to achieve next season, which could include finishing in the top six or top eight on the Premier League table
