Everton beats Southampton 2-1 in Premier League

Three days after its first home loss in a year, Everton bounced

back to beat Southampton 2-1 at Goodison Park in the Premier League

on Sunday.

The home side took the lead through Seamus Coleman in the ninth

minute when the defender slotted into the net from close range.

Southampton battled back and found the equalizer through Gaston

Ramirez, who converted Adam Lallana’s pass with a left-footed shot

from outside the box in the 71st. But Romelu Lukaku, who came into

the game without a goal in five matches, found the winner three

minutes later to banish memories of the unlikely 1-0 loss to

last-place Sunderland on Boxing Day.
