Crouch scores 100th PL goal as Stoke draws 1-1 with Everton

Veteran striker Peter Crouch scored his 100th Premier League goal as Stoke were held to an entertaining draw at home to Everton.

Crouch's landmark moment came in the seventh minute when the veteran striker tucked home a close-range finish.

The former England global has scored four goals in his last five Premier League appearances to notch his ton after being a bit-part player in the first four months of the season.

Everton's defence, watertight in their last three league games, were caught napping by a hopeful long ball that freed the Austria worldwide on the left-hand side of the penalty area.

However, Everton got back on level terms six minutes before the interval in controversial circumstances.

Everton hit back with an opening of their own when Bruno Martins Indi did just enough to put Seamus Coleman off inside the box, with the full-back only able to fire over the crossbar on his 200th league appearance for the club. The assistant referee flagged for offside but referee Craig Pawson ruled that the ball had struck the Stoke defender and not Romelu Lukaku on the way.

Stoke should have restored their lead before half time when Arnautovic was played clean through on goal, but the forward opted against taking the ball around Robles and instead saw his effort kept out by the Everton keeper.

Both teams had chances to win it inside the final five minutes.

Both sides had chances to take all the points in the second half, with Stoke new boy Saido Berahino nearly marking his debut off the bench with a goal only for Ramiro Funes Mori to head off the line, while Everton teenager Tom Davies saw a bullet header saved brilliantly by Lee Grant.

Everton had a quiet Deadline Day in the end but Ronald Koeman's side did consider two big moves, concerning one incoming player and one experienced midfielder leaving Goodison Park, but decided against moves in the end.

The point keeps Everton in 7th place in the Premiership table.
