Everton Comeback From 2-0 Down To Secure Premier League Safety In The Most Dramatic Fashion

That could well be one of the most important results in Everton's 144-year history.

On a dramatic night at Goodison Park, the Toffees officially secured Premier League safety on Thursday after coming back from 2-0 down against Crystal Palace to win 3-2.

Three second-half goals from Michael Keane, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin helped Frank Lampard's reach that all-important 39-point mark. You can see that remarkable Calvert-Lewin goal below.

Hundreds of fans scampered onto the Goodison Park pitch in the moments after Calvert-Lewin's winner.

And after holding on for seven agonising minutes of injury time, the Toffees managed to pick up the biggest three points of their season so far.

Everton will face Arsenal in their final game of the Premier League season but it's Burnley and Leeds who need a positive result to avoid the drop.

Here's how social media reacted to Everton's victory against Patrick Vieira's side.

At the start of May, Everton manager Frank Lampard was confident hard work would lift Everton to Premier League safety. He was right.

"We have to have real strong belief," he told Sky Sports. "When times are difficult in terms of results and position, it's important you remain positive and have a belief about what you can do here and that maybe things will go in our favour.

"We need to keep working towards that."
