First match of the second day of the Premier League, that this Everton – West Bromwich.
In the first match, Everton defeated Tottenham (1-0), an ideal result to start a season.
This Saturday was to follow up against West Bromwich, which just promoted and heavily beaten by Leicester in the opening (0-3).
West Bromwich Albion started the game well by quickly opening the scoring, thanks to Diangana (0-1, 10th). What to doubt the men of Carlo Ancelotti? At least for 20 minutes, until the equalization of Calvert flew in following a heel on the goal line (1-1, 31st).
Then the match completely changed in 3 minutes.
First, James Rodriguez gave the advantage to his team with a perfectly placed left foot strike (2-1, 45th + 1).
Then, this same Colombian came to get a red card 2 minutes later, on a gesture of humor from the yet experienced Kieran Gibbs.
This triggered the anger of Slaven Bilic, also expelled. We say to ourselves that it is off to a good start for the Mersey club, but that was before Matheus Pereira’s brilliant free kick and his left foot (2-2, 47th).
He will have only 7 minutes in Everton to regain the advantage thanks to a Michael Keane who took a free kick (3-2, 54th).
Dominating and carried by a gala James Rodriguez, the Toffees offered themselves a 4th goal,(4-2, 62nd).
The former Real Madrid then dropped a ball over the head of Calvert-Lewin, who offered himself a hat-trick (5-2, 66th).
With this great success, Carlo Ancelotti’s men take the lead in the Premier League.
