Everton won the most thrilling encounter of the English Premier League weekend on Sunday, coming from two goals down to secure a 3-2 victory against Watford at Goodison Park.
It’s only the second time in Premier League history that the Toffees have come from 2-0 down to win a match, the last coming way back in May 1994 when they accomplished the feat against Wimbledon.
With his side trailing thanks to goals from Richarlison and Christian Kabasele, caretaker manager David Unsworth must have feared the worst, but he managed to inspire the unlikely comeback with bold substitutions and tactics.
Oumar Niasse, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Leighton Baines were the goal heroes with the last goal coming in stoppage time, before former player Tom Cleverley missed a last-gasp Watford penalty to ensure all three points stayed at Goodison.
Fans were of course delighted with the comeback performance and the result, many crediting Unsworth for his impact on the outcome.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…

Unsworth's subs changed the game for us. Won't get credit from those who don't want him though #efc

Yes they rode their luck but if that's David Unsworth's last game no doubt about spirit he's created. Gutsy edge that had been missing #efc
