Everton move up to fourth in PL with 2-1 win over Swansea
Johannesburg – England midfielder Ross Barkley scored a brilliant 84th-minute free-kick to earn Everton a 2-1 win at Swansea City that propelled his side into the Champions League places, according to reports.
According to Sport24, Everton right-back Seamus Coleman broke the deadlock in the 66th minute with a swerving 30-yard shot, but Swansea equalised four minutes later when Dwight Tiendalli’s volley deflected in off Bryan Oviedo.
Barkley settled matters at the death, bending a sumptuous free-kick in off the crossbar from just outside the box to give Everton manager Roberto Martinez victory against his former club, the report said.
The victory left Everton in fourth place, a point above Chelsea, having played a game more, while Swansea remain 11th, the report added.
