Tottenham were well and truly back after the international break, somehow clutching a draw from the jaws of victory once more.
Let’s take a look at how the individual players got on:
Hugo Lloris – 4 – First game back from injury. Made a series of very simple stops but his kicking gave the ball away far too often and put Spurs in some awful positions.
Pedro Porro – 6 – A constant threat in behind down the right side – hopefully a glimpse of things to come. His final delivery needed work today though.
Cristian Romero – 6 – Decent front-foot defending from Romero which allowed Porro to stay high and wide. When he stays just the right side of the line, Romero is class. Unfortunately, he is not the only defender. Won the penalty too.
Eric Dier – 4 – First time we have seen him regularly step out with and without the ball in a while. Unfortunately, he gave the ball away in some dangerous areas when doing so. Just hasn’t seemed commanding in the key moments this season.
Clement Lenglet – 6 – One of the best defensive performances we have seen from him at Spurs. Usually weak in the challenge and easy to run past, he was anything but today. Seemed to go wrong when he went off for Sanchez.
Ivan Perisic – 5.5 – I think when Spurs control play a little more, it allows Perisic to stay forward and focus more on his quality delivery than his dodgy defending. Could have had a couple of assists today. Defending a lead is really not his strength though.
Oliver Skipp – 5 – Still feels like a very raw talent. Decent off the ball and will work all day long for you but often gets a bit of a nosebleed on the ball in the opposition half, which he needs to improve to earn a regular spot in the team.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 5 – A steady performance from Pierre but Spurs just need more from him on the ball in the absence of Bentancur. We know he can do it, we’ve seen it at times this season. That being said, it was 2v3 in Everton’s favour in the engine room today.
Dejan Kulusevski – 5 – Some quality dribbling moments, but seems to be lacking the spark in the final third he showed effortlessly last season. Hopefully, that will return when Spurs add a creative spark in the summer window.
Harry Kane – 6 – Played mostly with his back to goal today as Everton looked to mark him out the game. Missed a great headed chance by his standards and had a shot cleared off the line too. Took the penalty well and got Doucoure sent off.
Heung-min Son – 5 – Still seems half a second too slow in his decision-making, which has been the case all season. It could be a case of just resetting in the summer and starting the new campaign with a clean slate, but I hope he rediscovers something in the next two months.
Davinson Sanchez – 4 – Didn’t fill you with confidence on the left.
Lucas Moura – 1 – On the pitch for six minutes then a straight red.
