EVERTON 1 HUDDERSFIELD TOWN 1

Sept 1 (Reuters) - Everton gave a Premier League debut to new signing Lucas Digne who marked the occasion with an assist but the hosts were frustrated by a dogged Huddersfield as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

Huddersfield took a surprise 34th-minute lead when Phil Billing headed past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from a corner.

But the lead was wiped out almost immediately when left back Digne’s cross was guided home by Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The closest Everton came to a winner after the break was when Ademola Lookman’s tantalising cross just eluded Calvert-Lewin and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Everton remain unbeaten after four games but have drawn three times, while Huddersfield are yet to win this season. (Reporting by Martyn Herman; Editing by Ken Ferris)
