Everton came back from two goals down to defeat West Brom 3-2 at the Hawthorns on Monday night.

The first half produced a poor spectacle, but the Baggies took the lead on 41 minutes with a decent team move.

James Morrison played a ball behind the Everton defence, and Saido Berahino making a run in from the wing latched on to the ball, before lifting the ball over Tim Howard.

The Baggies doubled their on 54 minutes, as defender Craig Dawson headed home at the far post from a corner kick. That two goal lead did not last long though, as the Toffees were back in the game less than a minute later.

Gerard Deulofeu put in a superb cross from the right-flank and striker Romelu Lukaku looped a header past Boaz Myhill in the West Brom goal.

The visitors were level on 75 minutes, as Lukaku played a ball behind the centre of the Baggies defence, and found Arouna Kone, who looked to be borderline offside position.

The Ivorian striker had time and fired a low effort past Myhill to level the scores. The incredible turnaround was complete on 84 minutes. Deulofeu was involved again, as his cross hit Lukaku on the hand, before the Belgian international scored from close range.

The victory moved Everton up to fifth in the Premier League table, with the Merseyside derby against Liverpool on Sunday, while West Brom drop to 14th in the table with a tricky trip to Crystal Palace up next for the Baggies.

Did Everton deserve to win at West Brom?
