Full match coverage from 3 historic games from the 2002/2003 season:
Everton 2-1 Arsenal.
It was the day that no Evertonian will ever forget. It was the day that the latest, and youngest, pupil from the School of Science announced himself to the world. Arsenal were on an astonishing unbeaten run and it was always going to take something special to bring them down. It was stoppage time when a 16-year old boy fired an unstoppable shop past David Seaman to clinch a memorable victory for Everton - and didn't Goodison Park celebrate! Wayne Rooney had arrive!
Leeds United 0-1 Everton.
Fifty one years, two months and two days had elapsed since Everton last recorded a league win at Elland Road. But, thanks to another 'Wayne Rooney' special that run is now over! The boy-wonder had only just turned 17, but he showed skill and maturity beyond his years when he danced through the Leeds defence before placing an angled shot past Paul Robinson. He'd done it again and the visiting supporters celebrated an Elland Road winner in the league for the first time since Tommy Eglington had obliged in 1951!
Everton 2-1 Southampton.
The chase for European qualification was still very much alive when the Saints came marching to Goodison in February. The mid-day kick off seemed to affect Everton though, and Gordon Strachan's side took a first half lead, which they then fiercely protected after the break, despite almost constant Blues prseeure. Time was running out and Goodison desperately needed a hero. Step forward...Tomasz Radzinski! The jet-heeled Canadian striker brought Everton level with seven minutes to go and then smashed home a stoppage-time winner to send the home fans into raptures. Yet another unforgettable afternnon in a memorable season.
