Everton blows slim survival hopes on Norwich

Scoring with seven minutes left, Aston Villa’s substitute Ahmed El Mohamady gave his beleaguered side a potential help for relegation, as they gained a crucial point in a 1-1 Premier League draw at Newcastle United on Wednesday.

Villa will be fortified by their fightback, as they remained in the bottom two at St James’ Park after Dwight Gayle put the host team in front in the 68th moment.

Newcastle, who defeated Sheffield United 3-0 in their first game on Sunday after the COVID-19 lockdown, remained in the thirteenth situation as they advanced to 39 points from 31 matches. Villa has 27 points, having drawn from the playoffs two out of three played in seven days after coming back to action.

Norwich City’s thin survival aspirations were dealt a blow as Everton kept alive their European football dreams thanks to a Michael Keane header. Daniel Farke ‘s side at the bottom of the table went into the nineteenth place six-point adrift game and had to compel a victory to close the gap.

In the primary half, Farke ‘s four changes irritated Everton as the visitors held at bay in any case, Keane’s gestured goal at the start of the subsequent half gave the Toffees the lead.

The 27-year-old defender got himself unmarked for his season’s subsequent Premier League goal and was able to push a corner in the Norwich net past Tim Krul.

Prior to the game, Carlo Ancelotti said he accepted that his side’s European qualification was a fair target, and the success took them a bit nearer to raising a gap while Norwich ‘s battle against the target proceeded.

The Canaries scored only once in their last seven matches.

Another Adama Traore-Raul Jimenez display gave Wolverhampton Wanderers a valuable 1-0 win over the Premier League battle of Bournemouth on Wednesday.

In an almost identical image of Saturday’s opener against West Ham United, Jimenez reached Traore ‘s charging run and inch-ideal traverse the hour for his fifteenth league goal of the season.

The victory put them at 49 points in the 6th position, the same number as fifth-placed Manchester United that has the best contrast in goal. Pending the consequences of Manchester City ‘s second-placed appeal against a UEFA suspension, a Champions League compartment may almost certainly be offered in fifth place this season.
