Video Jukebox – More late heartbreak for Everton

norwich.jpgThe Premier League match that took place yesterday between Norwich City and Everton is one that both teams may look back on and think it had a defining impact on their season.

Everton are chasing European football, with the top four still not out of their sights, whilst Norwich went into the game looking to halt and alarming run of ten league games without a win – a sequence that has seen them drop just six points above the bottom three.

A win was vital to both teams for different reasons and in the end it was the Canaries who took the three points in truly dramatic circumstances.

Chances fell to both sides in an even first 45 minutes, but it was Everton who took the lead courtesy of a fine stooping header from Leon Osman from a Leighton Baines cross.

There were fewer clear cut opportunities in the second half, until the final ten minutes.

Norwich pulled themselves level on 84 minutes, when substitute Kei Kamara escaped Fellaini from a corner and powered a header beyond Tim Howard.

The celebration from Norwich manager Chris Hughton said it all, but the best was yet to come.

In the fourth minute of added time, a deep cross was headed down and prodded beyond Tim Howard from close range by Grant Holt, who seconds earlier had been denied by a last ditch tackle.

Cue jubilant scenes at Carrow Road and frustration from David Moyes who demanded an explanation from the officials as to where the extra thirty seconds of stoppage time came from.

A dramatic game, that is set to have a huge bearing on where both teams ultimately end up this season.
