Iwobi was offering another hard-running turn, chasing and harrying Leicester’s tidy trio of midfielders. With the ball at his feet, Iwobi drove through the heart of the pitch, moving Everton from back to front speedily enough to discomfort Leicester. There was home hope, too, in the space Leicester vacated in committing bodies to attack.
For the visitors’ part, they would have been pleased with Schmeichel’s sweeping pass to Ricardo Pereira, hugging the right touchline. Schmeichel had his eye in following an early round of keep-ball under acute pressure from Everton forwards sensing an opportunity to pinch possession. This pass was dropped onto Pereira’s toes and the Portuguese progressed upfield via a crisp exchange with Youri Tielemans.

And an effort from Gray, collecting Gordon’s smart return, went similarly high. The catalyst for Everton, repeatedly, was Iwobi. It was his hounding that robbed Leicester and, ultimately, led to Gray’s attempt. Moments previously, Iwobi’s closing and pressing tight to Leicester’s goalline, switched up the decibel levels inside Goodison. Lampard had shifted the former Arsenal player into a more advanced position for the second 45 minutes, Iwobi operating ahead of Allan and Fabian Delph.
The Belgian defender waited optimistically on his heels for a pass to arrive, only to witness Gordon steal in, quick as a flash, and fire the ball infield for Richarlison. In trying to manipulate the ball to set up a goal attempt, Richarlison inadvertently invited the hastily-retreating Castagne to make good on his error. The Gordon-Castagne duel counted as a source of optimism for Everton. Equally, there was an element of encouragement in the increasingly frantic football.
Leicester’s early control – see a 75-per-cent possession share and a let-off for Everton when Maddison scuffed into Pickford’s gloves at 1-0 – steadily gave way to a stretched, harum-scarum contest. Jonny Evans slammed the door in the face of Richarlison, slipped in by Alex Iwobi. Vitalii Mykolenko similarly checked Barnes’ progress at the other end.
Gray, who rifled a 21st-minute shot into the body of Tielemans after dashing in from the left, came closest to a first-half equaliser. A set-piece routine lifted directly from the training ground – and, by extension, the playbook of First-Team coach Paul Clement – saw Gray clip a left-wing corner low to Iwobi at the near post. It appeared a mis-hit from Gray, at first. Not as the full picture emerged, though. Iwobi directed the ball back for Gray, on the move and flashing a rising shot narrowly past Schmeichel’s left upright. Gray again, a few minutes earlier, swinging in a ball from the right but seeing Richarlison head over at the near post. Iwobi carried the ball forwards for a strike over the top five minutes after the restart.
Salomon Rondon, on since minute 66, pushed Leicester back, eventually squeezing the ball to Richarlison. The Everton attacker had passed up a couple of very good opportunities – but in putting his hand up for another go, Richarlison epitomised his side’s perseverance. His double at Burnley a fortnight ago – goals 48 and 49 of his Goodison Park career – went unrewarded. This right-foot strike, however, dribbled into the corner to claim a draw and open up a four-point cushion to Burnley in 18th. We should have known, Richarlison likes a goal against Leicester, this his fifth in seven Premier League games against the Midlanders. Lampard, speaking on the eve of this match, made no bones about his expectation over Everton’s fight to play Premier League football next season extending to the bitter end of this campaign.
As hard as they pushed and probed and picked away at the lock, Everton couldn’t bundle their way through. Headers flashed wide, shots were scrambled off the line and Kasper Schmeichel, Leicester’s goalkeeper, made a couple of very good saves. It seemed Everton’s race was run when Seamus Coleman steered the ball beyond Schmeichel in stoppage time, only for Daniel Amartey to intervene. But there was still gas in the Everton tank. Forward they came, one more time, to muster a 13th shot of the game. Lucky number 13, as it happened, as, finally, the hosts achieved the desired result.

When Dele replaced Allan after 58 minutes, Iwobi retained his more offensive brief, leaving Delph to guard the back-four. Rondon was next to enter the fray, on for Gray with 25 minutes remaining. And the switch almost immediately paid off. Pickford cut out the middlemen, punting a 60 yarder toward Rondon. He got enough of the ball to help it on for Richarlison, whose direct running forced a Leicester slip. Schmeichel, however, dived right to beat out the right-footed attempt. Leicester’s attacking threat was diminishing – but not, by any means, disappearing. Maddison’s strike from distance forced Pickford into a flying stop to his right, while a slip from Coleman went unpunished after the away side appeared to run out of ideas and, consequently, options in the penalty area.
