Everton will officially be a Premier League team next season.
For weeks, it looked as if the Merseyside outfit would drop out of the top-flight for the first time in over 70 years.
And Everton mathematically secured survival on Thursday evening thanks to a dramatic 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace.
Frank Lampard‘s side actually fell 2-0 behind thanks to first half goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew.
The Toffees rallied in the second half, though, with Michael Keane and the in-form Richarlison levelling the scores at 2-2 by the 75th minute.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin then fired Everton in front with just five minutes left of normal time, a strike that sparked wild scenes inside Goodison Park.
A small number of fans invaded the pitch after the ball rippled the back of the net, despite the fact the game was not over.
Calvert-Lewin and some of his teammates charged over to the stands to celebrate, although Richarlison opted against doing that.
Instead, the Brazil international decided to perform a comedic head dive right by the touchline and the footage of it is absolute gold.

The still photos of Richarlison flat out on the turf will almost certainly be a meme for the foreseeable future.
Calvert-Lewin’s winner was just the striker’s fifth Premier League goal of the 2021/22 season and it may very well prove to be his last in an Everton shirt.
He has been heavily linked with a move away this summer. Arsenal – the team the Toffees play on the final day of the season – are a possible destination for him.
If Calvert-Lewin does leave, he can certainly say that he bowed out in style and also paved the way for an iconic celebration by Richarlison.
