Who Earned Their Tottenham 'Spurs' at Everton?

It was a hard-earned point for Tottenham against Everton at Goodison Park. There was good and bad to take from the game but who impressed most for Spurs?

Hugo Lloris: kept another clean sheet, the 13th in all competitions and Lloris’ 7th in ten Premier League matches. He followed Andros Townsend’s example when carrying on after taking a knock on the side of the head. Encouraged by captain Michael Dawson, Lloris played out the final fifteen minutes against the wishes of the medical staff. He showed bravery when diving at the feet of Lukaku in the first place and coped well under pressure from a couple of corners after the stoppage and made a good save when Deulofeu got through the defence to fire in a powerful shot from the right.

Kyle Walker: had a good game – he was strong and controlled in defence and was a threat to Everton when going forward. He struck his first half free-kick well and forced Howard to punch clear.

Vlad Chiriches: played well in what could have been a difficult match when facing Lukaku. He covered back well early in the second half to make a recovery tackle and clearance when Mirallas was played through by Lukaku.

Jan Vertonghen: may not like playing at left back but he was a constant threat to Everton when going forward and coped well against his compatriot, Mirallas, who is normally quite a handful. Could have had a penalty in the first half but might have conceded one after the interval.

Sandro: was a powerhouse for the first hour – Everton got nothing against him as he patrolled the centre of midfield.

Andros Townsend: was a constant threat but still opts to shoot too often.

Lewis Holtby: another energetic performance in the first half as Spurs forced the home team back.
