Demarai Gray’s late goal ensured Everton did not lose their opening three top-flight games for the first time since 1990

Brennan Johnson looked to have scored a winner for the visitors that would have condemned Everton to a third defeat in their opening three games for the first time in the Premier League.

Not since 1990 have the Toffees endured such a poor start, but winger Gray’s 88th-minute leveller ensured Frank Lampard’s side avoided that unwanted piece of history.

Johnson finished smartly in the 81st minute after Jordan Pickford palmed out Ryan Yates’ effort from range but Forest led for only seven minutes.

Anthony Gordon – who continues to be linked with a move to Chelsea – then had a chance to win it for the hosts but could not lift his effort over goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
