Everton Fans Created An Incredible Atmosphere After Avoiding Relegation With Comeback Win

Everton fans were on the pitch at full time on Thursday night, after their amazing comeback win over Crystal Palace secured their place in the Premier League.

Things looked bleak at half time of last night's game at Goodison Park, with Palace 2-0 up and Burnley beating Aston Villa in the Midlands.

The scores meant that Frank Lampard's team were staring back down the barrel of relegation from the Premier League, with just one game left to play after the Palace game.

However, the Toffees were able to turn things around in the second half and created history by winning 3-2, their first ever victory in the Premier League from two nil down at half time.

In keeping with recent tradition, fans stormed onto the pitch at full time, and, despite some ugly scenes involving Palace boss Patrick Vieira, some of the images from the celebration showed how magic a night it was for Everton.

Fans covered the pitch, sang and celebrated along with the players and Lampard, with the win confirming their stay in the top tier once again.

The fans were being celebrated for keeping the club up, with their home form the only thing that kept them above the drop zone in recent months.

The win over Leicester City away from home earlier this month was their first win outside of Merseyside since August but then they lost at home to Brentford at the weekend puncturing their chances of staying up.

At 2-0 down on Thursday they must have felt the worst was to come, especially with this weekend's opponents Arsenal needing to win to have a chance of finishing in the top four.

Dele Alli's introduction at half time was credited with the comeback, with the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder turning back the clock to put in a vintage performance.

Lampard can be very proud of his efforts this season, after taking the club from 16th and four points above the relegation zone, when he took over from Rafa Benitez, to 16th place and four points above the bottom three with one game left.

Everton's survival, along with the point that Burnley ended up earning at Villa, means that Leeds United are now favourites for the drop.

Jesse Marsch's side face Brentford on Sunday, whilst the Clarets play Newcastle United and only need to equal or better their rival's result to stay up.
