Goals from Harry Kane and Gylfi Sigurdsson ensured that the two sides shared the spoils in the end.
Jose Mourinho’s side came into the game needing a win, and the draw here will be a huge blow to the top four hopes. Spurs are now five points adrift of fourth place, having played one extra match.
Everton started the game brightly, but it was the visitors who scored the opening goal of the game through Kane. The Toffees will be disappointed with the way they conceded the goal. An error from Michael Keane allowed the England striker to score.
Carlo Ancelotti was without the injured Yerry Mina today, and Everton struggled defensively. Keane and Holgate were responsible for both goals, and the Toffees could have easily picked up all three points with a better defensive showing.
Everton dominated the proceedings despite their injury problems and created the best chances. The fans will feel that they would have won with Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the pitch. The Everton striker missed the game with an injury.
Meanwhile, Spurs were quite mediocre in terms of performance today, but Harry Kane made the most of the mistakes from the Everton centre-halves and kept his side in the game.
Richarlison had the chance to win the game for Everton towards the end, but the Brazilian failed to hit an open net from the edge of the box. That said, the likes of Alderweireld and Kane hit the post for Spurs as well.
The home side can be pleased with the performance from their midfield and attack, considering the number of injuries they had. But Ancelotti will have to sort out the defensive problems if the Toffees are to secure European football anytime soon.
Meanwhile, the draw was not the only blow for the Spurs tonight. Harry Kane hobbled off with an ankle injury in the dying moments of the game, and it remains to be seen whether he is fit for the League Cup final against Manchester City later this month.
Kane and Sigurdsson show
The former Spurs midfielder was in excellent form for Everton tonight, and Sigurdsson grabbed a vital brace for Ancelotti’s side.
He was undoubtedly the best player on the pitch for his side.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane continued his exceptional run of form, and he will definitely be the frontrunner for the player of the year award in the Premier League.
The England striker has now contributed to 62 goals (45 goals and 17 assists) in 62 games under Jose Mourinho.
Harry Kane was forced off with an injury at the end of Everton vs. Tottenham clash. 9 days until the League Cup final against Manchester City.
