On Thursday at Goodison Park, a late Everton substitute equalizer Theo Walcott denied Aston Villa three points in their battle to avoid Premier League relegation in a 1-1 draw.
As a center back Ezri Konsa latched on to a free-kick from Conor Hourihane, Villa scored in the 72nd minute with the first target attempt of the game, after a courageous first half.
To perform goal-scoring opportunities Everton strived until the cross of Andre Gomes found the diminutive Walcott who had been heading home for three minutes.
The outcome left Villa 19th in the table, having played a game more than 17th-placed Watford, three points adrift of the safety line.
