Premier League: The ending of Everton vs Arsenal in 2016 was crazy

Everton vs Arsenal in 2016

The ending of West Ham vs Manchester United on Sunday was wild.

Jesse Lingard scored an 89th-minute winner for the away side to seal a 2-1 win at the London Stadium.

But that goal was the start of the drama, rather than the end of it.



Cristiano Ronaldo then believed he should have been awarded a penalty for a foul by Kurt Zouma as West Ham went up the other end in search of an equaliser.

And they were handed - quite literally - the perfect opportunity to level late on as Luke Shaw was adjudged to have handled in the penalty area.

In the final minute of injury-time, David Moyes sent on captain Mark Noble to take what was virtually the last kick of the game.

However, Noble’s spot-kick was saved by David de Gea to preserve their 2-1 lead and earn all three points.

However, we think we know of an ending of a Premier League match that was equally crazy - even if it didn’t result in a goal.

Let’s take you back to 2016 and a match between Everton and Arsenal at Goodison Park.

The home side led 2-1 when Phil Jagielka was sent off for a second yellow card in the 93rd-minute.

Arsenal would have one last chance to equalise from the resulting free-kick and up came goalkeeper Petr Cech in an attempt to grab it.

What happened next was classic Barclays.

Arsenal had two shots cleared off the line, while Cech ended up in the Everton net after launching himself at a header. A penalty appeal was also turned down before Everton broke down the other end with Cech scrambling back but somehow the home side couldn’t score. There was even time for Arsenal to go up the other end but they couldn’t fashion themselves a dramatic equaliser.

The entire sequence (following Jagielka’s red card) was filmed by an Everton fan in the stadium.
