At the half: Calvert-Lewin brings Toffees level with Swans
Shaky early moments had the Swans on the back foot, but the relegation side has settled in nicely since.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s late finish in first-half stoppage time has Everton level against Swansea City, 1-1, at Goodison Park.
The Toffees looked to go into the break down a goal, but a penalty kick chance to Wayne Rooney sparked the home side’s equalizer.
Despite having his spot-kick attempt saved by Swans keeper Lukasz Fabianski, Calvert-Lewin was in the right place to smash home the rebound.
Meanwhile, the Swans opened the scoring on 36 minutes when Leroy Fer tapped home.
The opportunity came off of a corner kick beyond the hour mark, to which Fer snuck in at the back post, and simply guided the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
Everton struggled to muster up chances of its own during the opening 45 minutes, despite the team’s extensive possession.
It was bad news early for the Swans, when Wilfried Bony suffered a leg injury inside the opening five minutes. That sparked the visitors to bring on loanee Tammy Abraham.
