Everton drew 2-2 away at bottom-side Hull City, who climbed up one spot after that result. Twice the visiting Blues went behind, and both times they fought back to equalize. The Toffees have now rescued 12 points from losing positions this season, highest in the Premier League.

After the game, manager Ronald Koeman spoke to the media.

“It was a good football game, really open, and we had the better chances.

“We scored twice and had a good reaction on both occasions to going behind. We didn’t start the game well, conceding very fast, but we had luck to go in level at half-time.

“In the second half we played well. We played really offensively but we knew about the quality of Snodgrass from set-pieces. He had already been unlucky with a free-kick but his second made it 2-1.

“But, once again, the team showed a good reaction and character to make it 2-2 and after that we did everything to try to win the game. Dominic Calvert-Lewin had a big chance with a header but we settle for a point. That’s four from the last two away games and the performance tonight was okay.”

The Toffees hit the woodwork twice, while Hull hit the bar once in the second half just before their second goal.

“Sometimes we are a little short of luck. What was better tonight than against Leicester was we had more ball possession, we created more chances and we were more dangerous.

“We have scored two goals away from home and that is not bad. We have had some other good chances – Romelu Lukaku was unlucky, Seamus Coleman was unlucky, Dominic Calvert-Lewin too. We took all the risk to try to win but in the end it wasn’t to be.”
