Twitter reacts

Here's how Twitter reacted to John Terry's own goal...

It seemed to be a costly error for Terry, who watched his side go 2-0 down moments later when Kevin Mirallas doubled the visitors’ advantage with an excellent goal.

However, goes from Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas made it 2-2 with 20 minutes left to play...

But then... Ramiro Funes Mori popped up in the 90th minute with another for Everton. Yikes.

And then John Terry scored a 97th minute equaliser!
