What a great game of football!

Everton kept their hopes for Premier League survival alive with a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Leicester City.

Though, I feel we should have gone for it, the points were there for the taking.

The Toffees started the match strongly, dominating the opening minutes of play. It wasn't long before they took a well-deserved lead, as Dominic Calvert-Lewin was brought down in the box and converted the resulting penalty with ease.

Despite Everton's early dominance, Leicester managed to turn the game around with two soft quickfire goals from Caglar Soyuncu and Jamie Vardy,

Michael Keane's form continues to cause concern, while Sean Dyche turns a blind eye for whatever reason.

It smacks of nepotism from their days together at Burnley, but let us hope the reason is deeper and well-founded, because Michael has been in very poor form recently.

The questions left unanswered are the true reasons why Dyche will not give Mina or Coady a start next to Tarkowsky.

Dyche insists on defending Keane and saying he is playing well, which is frankly baffling.

It could have been even worse for Everton, if not for "the" crucial moment in the game when goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made an excellent save, standing upright in the middle of the goal and bravely saving James Maddison's penalty just before half-time.

The second half began with a renewed sense of urgency from the Toffees, and they were soon rewarded for their efforts when Alex Iwobi scored a stunning volley to level the score.

Which balanced a sloppy overall performance from Alex Iwob that could have cost Everton the game. Alex's lack of concentration and awareness in the build up to Vardy's goal.

It was in fairness a well-deserved equalizer for Everton, who had been unlucky not to take all three points from the match.

Unfortunately, the night was marred by an injury to Everton captain Seamus Coleman, who was stretchered off shortly before Iwobi's goal.

Coleman had just returned to the starting lineup after missing the last three matches with a hamstring injury. His absence will be sorely felt by the team.

Despite the setback, Everton continued to push forward, with Iwobi and Calvert-Lewin both coming close to scoring again. Leicester also had their chances, but Pickford made some crucial saves to keep the scores level.

The match ended in a draw, which was a fair result considering how evenly matched the two teams were. It was a thrilling encounter, with both sides playing attacking, high-intensity football throughout.

The atmosphere at the King Power Stadium was electric, and the Everton fans who made the trip to Leicester were in fine voice.

Overall, it was a great performance from Everton, who showed plenty of fight and determination to come away with a point. There are still some tough matches to come in the fight for survival, but the Toffees can take heart from this result and look to build on it in the weeks ahead. COYB
