Everton defender Lucas Digne was delighted to get off the mark for his new club - especially after assuming free-kick duties from top scorer Richarlison - but would have traded a maiden goal for three points.
The left-back secured a 2-2 draw at home to Watford with a set-piece strike seconds from the end of six minutes of added time.
It was more dropped points at home after last week's 1-1 draw with Newcastle and they have now taken just two from the last three matches with top-four sides Manchester City and Tottenham up next.
"I feel like I can score and I said to Richi (Richarlison) to leave the free-kick to me," said the former Barcelona defender, who joined in the summer for £18million and subsequently displaced long-time left-back Leighton Baines.
"We saved the defeat and I'm happy with my goal but we would have preferred the win. We need to stay focused and continue the work.
"We are happy to be playing against two of the best teams next and we need to work this week to prepare in the best manner."

The Portuguese welcomes former side Watford to Goodison Park on Monday evening.
Iceland international Sigurdsson feels Everton are going in the right direction under their new coach.
"I think if you ask any of the players, they are enjoying working with the new manager," the 29-year-old told the club website.

"There is a good understanding within the players."
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been charged after he raced on to the pitch to celebrate his side's Merseyside derby winner on Sunday.
The German was overjoyed by Divock Origi's 96th-minute goal and ran over to Reds goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
He apologised for his actions, but the Football Association announced on Monday afternoon that he had been charged with misconduct.
Klopp has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge.
Klopp said after the match: "I didn't want to run. It was not in my plan.
"I didn't want to run to Ali, I couldn't stop obviously. Not cool, but it happened. The more important things happened during the 95 minutes.
"Immediately after the game I apologised to (Everton boss) Marco Silva when we spoke to each other."
Silva said he did not hear an apology from Klopp, and added: "To be honest I didn't see (Klopp's run). I don't know what he did and the way he did it.
"It was a lucky day for him this afternoon, but that is football. I don't think he expected anything like that either.
"I cannot say it was disrespectful because I didn't see, when I see that moment maybe I can speak more about that situation."
