Everton and Ireland defender Seamus Coleman snatched an 89th-minute equaliser to crush Swansea's hopes of a first league win since the opening day of the season.

The Welsh club's long wait for three points goes on after Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty was cancelled out after a late defensive lapse from Jordi Amat in the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

As a result, new manager Bob Bradley became the first Swans manager in the Premier League to fail to win in his first five games, having taken just two points since assuming control. And, if the American thought things could not get any worse, his side dropped to bottom place after Sunderland's victory over Hull. It was cruel on the visitors but as the second half wore on they invited more pressure and their fragile confidence was eventually exposed.

For 88 minutes, it had all looked so much better as Sigurdsson's penalty led to the visitors' breakthrough. But just when they appeared to have held out, Amat's weak header dropped to Coleman, who nodded a looping effort back past Lukasz Fabianski's reach.
