Everton went a long way toward staying in the Premier League when Alex Iwobi scored a stoppage-time winner to sink Newcastle.
wobi attacked to death as soon as Allan saw red for the home team, reducing them to ten.
The previous match went on for six minutes when a protester tied himself to one of the goalposts.
The man, wearing a T-shirt supporting a group called Just Stop Oil, entered the Goodison Park field early in the second half and attached himself to a pole by wrapping something around his neck.
The match was stopped while security tried to remove him. The man was eventually freed using a pair of bolt cutters and led up from the ground, to boos from the crowd, by police.
Just Stop Oil was quick to claim responsibility for the stunt, releasing a statement on Facebook that read: “Tonight, Louis, a 21-year-old Just Stop Oil supporter, was locked out on the street. goal at Goodison Park while wearing a Just Stop T-shirt with oil on it, prompting the referee to briefly stop the game.”
The environmental group’s statement continues to criticize the Government’s policy on oil in the North Sea.
The incident followed an apparent attempt by the same group to disrupt Wednesday’s match between Arsenal and Liverpool but on that occasion a protester failed to arrive on the pitch.
