Tom Davies’ 96th-minute equaliser denied Southampton a huge three points in their fight for survival in a 1-1 draw at Everton.

Davies’ deflected effort, more than 60 seconds after the four minutes of added time had elapsed, was not enough to save Sam Allardyce from a chorus of boos at the full-time whistle at the end of a flat performance from the hosts.

Nathan Redmond, a half-time substitute, had turned Cedric’s cross beyond Jordan Pickford from close range (57) with a goal which looked like it would earn the Saints a valuable, and rare, away win.

The visitors had looked like keeping Everton at bay even after Maya Yoshida was sent off with five minutes remaining until Davies’ heartbreaking late strike, which leaves Southampton outside the relegation zone on goal difference ahead of a trip to 18th-placed Swansea on Tuesday night.
