For the first time in Everton’s Premier League history, the Toffees fought back from being 2-0 down at halftime to win 3-2.
The historic win against Crystal Palace couldn’t have come at a better time, as the win ensured that Frank Lampard’s side will be playing Premier League football next season. Safe on 39 points, the Toffees now can’t be caught by either Burnley or Leeds.
Just a few weeks ago Everton looked doomed, but Richarlison has rediscovered his shooting boots. The Brazilian has been excellent and has found the net six times in his last ten appearances. His equalizer to bring Everton back to parity at 2-2, might have been the biggest goal in his career.
Despite securing Premier League football for next season, it will be a tough summer for Everton. Due to previous financial breaches, the club won’t have a great deal of money to spend on new players and may need to sell one of their star men to balance the books.
Despite his recent heroics, it could be Richarlison that the club decides to cash in on.
Richarlison has attracted plenty of attention from clubs within the Premier League and from across Europe, it will be interesting to see what his and the clubs’ next steps will be.
