Kone grabs late equaliser as Everton draw 2-2 with Watford

LIVERPOOL: Arouna Kone grabbed an 86th-minute equaliser as Everton twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Watford in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The Ivory Coast striker denied Watford victory in its first top-flight match in eight years when he slotted home a finish following a lay-off by Romelu Lukaku, three minutes after fellow substitute Odion Ighalo put the promoted side back in the lead.

Watford went ahead at Goodison Park through Miguel Layun's half-volley in the 14th minute, only for Ross Barkley to make it 1-1 with a shot from just outside the area after 76 minutes.

It was Quique Sanchez Flores' first match in charge of Watford.
