Final Thoughts

Both teams will be disappointed with a point from that game. But a good goal and a penalty from Sigurdsson and two great goals from Kane sees the teams share the points.

Questions will be asked over whether Everton should have had their first half penalty, but they had plenty of attempts at goal.

Hugo Lloris kept the visitors in the game for much of it when he continued to make save after save, but Kane pounced on mistakes from the backline.

In the concluding moments of the game, Kane walked off injured, which will be a big problem for Mourinho with another game in midweek and a final in just over a week.

Both teams needed the win, but didn't get it.

Spurs warm-ups!

19:145 months ago

Those starting line ups:

A change of shape for Mourinho's men as he changes to three at the back with two wing backs. A return to the starting line up for Sissoko and Alderweireld is the noticeable difference to the team. Spurs need to get back on track to secure that top four spot and with Reguilon and Aurier chasing down the wings, the Lilywhites need the three points this evening.

Coleman is on the bench for Everton and after a few solid defensive performances, that decision is a surprise. Calvert-Lewin is out injured, but with Rodriguez and Richarlison up front, they aren't short of options.  

Pickford also returns to the squad for the hosts.

Both teams are in 8th and 9th in the league respectively and with a win this evening, Spurs have the chance to go above Liverpool on goal difference. With Everton having the chance to move up a position and over take the Lilywhites.
