English Premier League

Manolo Gabbiadini’s brace helped Southampton to snatch a point in a match against Newcastle on Sunday.

Newcastle went on the lead in the 20th minute courtesy of Isaac Hayden’s strike before Gabbiadinni cancelled it out moments in to the second half. A minute later, Ayoze Perez restored the lead but Gabbiadini was again the Saints’ hero as his emphatic penalty 15 minutes from time sealed a point.

In another match played, Wayne Rooney rescued a point for Everton as they drew 1-1 with Brighton. Anthony Knockaert put the hosts ahead in the 82nd minute. The visitors were awarded a 90th-minute penalty that Rooney converted after a silly foul from Brighton captain Bruno on Everton player.
