Everton were unable to put together a composed performance and had to settle for a 2-2 draw at the Premier League’s bottom-side Hull City. The Tigers went ahead early from a Michael Dawson shot in a corner. However, the Blues slowly grew into the game and finished the first half strong, including a tying goal off an own goal by goalie David Marshall.
Both sides hit the woodwork in the second half, with Robert Snodgrass showing the home side how invaluable he is to the team with a stinging freekick that Joel Robles was unable to keep out.
The Toffees continued to press, and were at times lining up to take potshots at the home goal. However, it took a delightful cross from Leighton Baines delivered right to Ross Barkley’s head with just five minutes left in the game to tie it up.
Youngster and substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin even had a chance to win it all, but his header fizzed just wide, and the game ended in a draw.
