A superb strike by Raphinha earned Leeds United a 2-2 draw with Everton in an entertaining contest in front of a packed Elland Road in the Premier League for the first time since May 2004.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot on the half-hour, after the striker adjudged to have been fouled by Liam Cooper following a VAR review.
The lead was cancelled out shortly before half-time as Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich linked well before the latter dinked the ball past Jordan Pickford.
Everton started the second half well and restored their advantage five minutes after the restart through Demarai Gray, who fired low past Illan Meslier to score his first goal for the club.
However, Rafael Benitez’s team were pegged back for a second time as Raphinha’s rasping effort with 18 minutes remaining made it three goals in three matches for the Brazilian against Everton.
Moise Kean and Micheal Keane were both denied in second-half stoppage time as the spoils were shared.
