Tottenham Hotspur lead Everton 1-0 at half time in what has been a slightly more encouraging display from the home side than what was witnessed against Sheffield United.
Spurs took the lead in the 23rd minute of play when Giovani Lo Celso’s shot which looked to be going wide hit the arm of Everton’s Michael Keane and took a wicked deflection to find its way into the goal.
The majority of play has been in the Toffees half and Carlo Ancelotti’s side have rarely threatened to trouble Hugo Lloris between the Spurs sticks, apart from a late Richarlison effort in added time.
Eric Dier had a good opportunity to double the lead from a free kick on the left hand side of the pitch but could not get his shot to dip under the bar and a similar effort from Harry Kane could only hit the Toffees defensive wall.
An unsavoury incident between Hugo Lloris and Heung-min Son has certainly dominated the talk at the break.
Here is how some Spurs fans have reacted to the first half performance.

Decent tbh. Wtf happened at the end there though with Son and Hugo ffs?

I’m sorry did Son stay in Korea and they sent a look-a-like?? He’s been so off his game and now arguing with the captain of his own team I don’t believe it’s him ?♂️

I love Lucas Moura but he hasn’t been close to inform for a looooooong time. If Stevie doesn’t start the 2nd half, we riot

Most exciting bits of action; Son V Lloris followed by the drinks break.

Good first half until the end.

Is the whole 2nd half going to be like the last 20 minutes of the 1st? Just sitting back & letting Everton dictate the play? Just play!
