Jordan Pickford made up for his earlier mistake with an incredible double-save for Everton in the final few minutes of Saturday afternoon’s early Premier League kick-off against Sheffield United.
In action at Bramall Lane, Pickford, who was named in Sean Dyche’s starting lineup, was tasked with stopping the Blades and making sure the Toffees registered their first points on the table.
And despite taking the lead after just 14 minutes thanks to a strike from midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure, Everton found themselves trailing 2-1 at the halftime break following a goal from Cameron Archer and an unlucky own-goal conceded by Pickford.
However, striking back through Arnaut Danjuma after 55 minutes, Everton quickly found themselves back in the contest, and although they failed to take the lead again, they almost fell behind in injury time following a late flurry from the home team.
