Everton fans applaud Richarlison for reaction after netting stunning double on return to Goodison Park

Tottenham star Richarlison was applauded by Everton’s supporters after apologising for scoring a stunning double in the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.

The Brazilian forward was part of the Tottenham side who travelled to Merseyside on Saturday lunchtime, looking to extend his stunning goalscoring run.

Richarlison refused to celebrate

Incredibly it took Richarlison just four minutes to open the scoring with the striker scoring an instinctive left-footed effort that saw the ball powered into the roof of Jordan Pickford’s net.

Richarlison wheeled away as if to celebrate, but quickly remembered where he was, and then stood still with a straight facial expression as his Tottenham teammates swarmed him with congratulations.

He appeared to apologise to the Everton fans behind the goal, who applauded his respectful gesture.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin grabbed one back for the Toffees, but the Brazilian star was not going to be upstaged on his return to his old club.

Richarlison then grabbed another shortly before half-time, curling a right-footed effort past Pickford, leading him to sheepishly cover his face in front of the Everton fans.

That effort was Richarlison’s ninth Premier League strike in eight games for Ange Postecoglou‘s side.

That run means he’s now scored more top flight goals that Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli combined.

Richarlison spent four years with the Toffees, helping them avoid relegation in the 2021/22 season, before joining Tottenham for a fee worth up to £60million that summer.

It wasn’t the first time that the 26-year-old has paid his respects to Everton either after apologising to their fans for scoring against them during the reverse fixture in north London earlier this season.

Richarlison’s double earned looked like it has earned a valuable three points for Tottenham, however a late equaliser from Jarrad Branthwaite meant that the game finished 2-2.
