The historic Everton of English football was in danger of losing the category for the first time in 68 years, but came back from 2-0 down to defeat Crystal Palace 3-2 and was guaranteed to remain in the first division.
Everton have the second-longest run of consecutive seasons in the First Division in English football, appearing in every season since 1954 and in total amassing 117 seasons in the top flight, more than any other team.
Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew put Crystal Palace ahead 2-0 at Everton’s Goodison Park before the end of the first half. But in the supplementary would come the epic comeback of Frank Lampard’s team.
Michael Keane, at 54, scored 1-2. With 15 minutes to go, Richarlison tied the game and at 85′ Domini Calvert-Lewin’s 3-2 came, blowing up Goodison Park and the fans celebrating by invading the pitch.
With 39 points, Everton can no longer fall to the relegation places on Sunday’s final matchday and are therefore saved.
Burnley (17th), who drew 1-1 with Aston Villa (14th), left the red zone on goal difference (-18 against -38) compared to Leeds (18th).
The Argentine Emiliano Buendía was the protagonist in that match. He first took a penalty which Ashley Barnes converted together before half-time for Burnley and then made up for by leveling for the Birmingham club in the 48th minute.
On the final day, Burnley host Newcastle on Sunday, while Leeds visit Brentford.

In a match that had emotions until the end, Luqueño returned to victory in the Intermediate Division and taking advantage of Pastoreo’s braking, he returned to the top of the classification table, accompanied by the team from the Department of Caaguazú.
Kevin Núñez was the author of the auriazul goal and it ended up being the only one of the game, despite constant searches by Atyrá in the final minutes of the game.
With this result, Miguel Ángel Zahzú’s team remains undefeated in the competition and achieved its fifth victory, reaching the 18-point line, equaling Pastoreo.
Likewise, he cut a streak of two consecutive draws against Santaní and Iteño, who had dropped him from the top.
On the next date, Sportivo Luqueño will receive Martín Ledesma at the Feliciano Cáceres stadium. The match will be played on Monday May 23 from 17:00. Pastoreo, meanwhile, will receive Rubio Ñu at the Antonio Aranda in Ciudad del Este on Sunday 22 from 10:00.
Away from the fields due to an injury, but just as close to soccer. Libertad’s jewel, Julio Enciso, is in the process of recovery (maxillofacial sinking) so he will no longer be taken into account in the first team for the remainder of the Apertura.
Similarly, the footballer is in the news for a solidarity act he had with his first club, Carlos Antonio López from the city of Caaguazú. The president of said institution, Esteban Quintana, wrote on his Facebook account a text of thanks to the striker from Libertad.
“Many thanks to the player Julio Enciso for the contribution to the players of the sub 20 of the Carlos Antonio López club” he published a photograph with the gumarela figure in the director’s office. Enciso always helps his former club financially and this time was no exception.
Enciso does not forget his roots and in addition to standing out in Libertad, he is very aware of the club that saw him born sportingly.
While recovering from maxillofacial collapse, Julio Enciso made a financial contribution to the U-20 team of the Carlos Antonio López club in his hometown, Caaguazú.
