Everton beat Southampton 1-0 to top EPL top four

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) – Everton ended their worst home game since 1958 by defeating Southampton 1-0 in the English Premier League on Monday, keeping their Champions League dream alive.

In the first 10 minutes, Richardson scored in the third game in a row, and “Everton” continued to move to the fourth place “West Ham” with two points in a home game.

But for the Saints, the pain continued with eight draws in the last nine games of the championship, leaving them seven points above the top three, wondering where their next victory would come from.

The Saints would have thought they had a chance against Everton, given their hosts’ poor home form, three defeats in a row, but the only last chance fell to Musa Jen Yepo in the final 10 minutes, when he got off to a good start. It was an escape for Everton, who paid off after conceding a second goal in the middle of the first goal, which was ruled out.

In the ninth minute, Richardson’s corner kick was only the fifth in the league, but since the beginning of last season, Joao Pedro (30) and Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar (19) are the only Brazilians to score more goals in the top five European leagues. than he.

Richardson played both fronts with Dominic Calvert-Levin, who has 13 league goals, and made the most of his opportunity.

Gyfi Sigurdsson, who was left with a hamstring injury due to a minor injury, used the space allotted to him by Mohamed Salisou to go down with Calvert-Lewin և teammate James Ames Ward-Pro.

The Icelandic striker passed to Richardson, who ran the same right-to-right corner as he last saw him score at Anfield, overtaking Fraser Forster.

For the first time since December 2019, he has scored goals in three consecutive league matches.

Michael Keane had a header, which was ruled out by the VAR for out-of-game play, as Southampton’s intention to cross a dangerously high line on free kicks caused more than a few problems, but strangely enough, the hosts became more restrained than daring. It նրանց could have cost them. ,
