Just three minutes into their final game of the Premier League campaign, Everton looked like they would be crashing out of the top flight after the opposition nudged themselves ahead through a penalty.
The match went from bad to worse after Wimbledon extended their lead through a Gary Ablett own goal and fans prepared themselves to face the dreaded drop into the Championship. But the class of 1993/94 had other ideas. After pulling one back through a Graham Stuart penalty, the Blues kicked into their highest gear and found two more goals through Barry Horne and another Stuart strike.
Should Everton keep or sell Fabian Delph this summer?
The historic comeback kept Everton in the Premier League and fans still remember the spectrum of emotions they went through during that day. One supporter has scolded the club, saying ‘don’t ever do that to me again’. Here’s a look at some of the other replies:

Was there. Lied to my yng son that we had no tickets. Didn’t want him to witness our relegation. I went through every emotion. Couldn’t stop crying for hours after the game. No voice, throat ripped, ears deaf, raw eyes. 💙💙💙. Don’t ever do that to me again @Everton
