Daily Mail compares Everton fans vs Isaac Success to Raheem Sterling’s abuse at Chelsea

Watford draw at Everton

Watford picked up a point in a 2-2 draw at Everton on Monday night.

A 96th minute free-kick from Lucas Digne earned Everton a point.

Richarlison had given Everton the lead in the first half, but three main incidents turned the match for Watford.

A Seamus Coleman own goal and a second from Abdoulaye Doucoure – two goals just after the hour – gave Watford the lead.

Ben Foster also saved a penalty from Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Isaac Success vs Everton

Isaac Success was subbed out the game in the 74th minute for Nathaniel Chalobah.

Everton’s fans booed Success off the pitch after the forward had repeatedly fallen over in the game.

Just before the break, Success hit the deck under a challenge from Yerry Mina.

Mina was lucky to avoid giving away a free-kick on the edge of his box. It was a foul.
