Elsewhere, Southampton came from behind to beat Everton 2-1 at Goodison Park, as Amadou Onana’s opener was made of no effect by James Ward-Prowse’s brace for the Saints.

The Toffees board of directors were absent in the game because of a “real and credible threat to their safety”, qnd the defeat piles up more pressure on manager Frank Lampard.
