Toffees Strike Late To Deny Villa

Everton struck deep into stoppage time to fight back and hold Aston Villa to a 3-3 draw at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Villa enjoyed the perfect start to the game with Christian Benteke receiving a pass Andreas Weimann before turning John Heitinga and slipping the ball under Tim Howard.

Marouane Fellaini almost restored parity two minutes later when he got past Ron Vlaar but slid his shot just wide of the target with Brad Guzan at full stretch.

The Toffees continued to look for an equaliser and it would arrive in the 21st minute when Victor Anichebe spun past Ciaran Clark at the edge of the area and drove his low shot into the back of the net.

Their joy lasted just three minutes though as Gabriel Agbonlahor buried a powerful header from inside the area, giving Howard no chance.

South African Steven Pienaar was pulling strings in midfield but wasted his chance to slot Everton's second when he produced a wild finish from the edge of the area with three minutes left in the half.

Weimann could have added a third for Villa six minutes into the second period but he blasted a poor finish over with just the goalkeeper to beat.

The visitors would make it 3-1 10 minutes later though as Weimann played a neat one-two with Lowton on the right before picking out Benteke who finished with a stooping header.

The thrilling action continued as just eight minutes later Fellaini rifled a ruthless finish past the goalkeeper after linking up with Nikica Jelavic.

Villa looked like they had done enough when the game went into stoppage time but three minutes in Everton would snatch a point when Fellaini powered a header home to make it 3-3.
