Everton started their season well this season with a win against Stoke City and another hard fought draw against Manchester City but have seemingly lost their way and faced defeats in two consecutive matches against defending champions Chelsea and last season’s runner ups Tottenham Hotspur. The Merseyside club have been prolifically beaten by 2-0 and 3-0 respectively at the hands of the Blues and the Spurs and are presently looking in deep trouble.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have been looking forward to getting a much important win under their belt after they lost and drew against Chelsea and Burnley in consecutive matches. They got the all important three points from their last match against Everton, which came on the back of a pretty dominating performance from the Spurs.

They also did not concede a goal in the match, which depicts their dominance at the back as well, making it impossible for the Everton players to get the ball past their keeper Hugo Lloris even once throughout the match.

The three main talking points from this match are depicted in the following lines-

Harry Kane is back among the goals-

The England striker was unable to break his August jinx this season as well, as he did not score throughout the last month but got his form back with the very first match in September, which, unfortunately for Everton, was against them. The top scorer from the last two seasons went on to score a brace, with his goals coming on either side of a beautiful volley from Christian Eriksen so as to help his team bag all three points from the match.

Everton’s defensive woes continue-

The Toffees were not able to contain the reigning champions from scoring against them and were compelled to digest two goals. The man in charge of the squad, Ronald Koeman, made a change in the formation and went in with a four man defence and omitted Phil Jagielka from the starting lineup. However, it was of no use as the defenders were not able to bog down a resurgent Spurs side, who were eyeing their second win of the season and went on to put three past the keeper into the net.

The ineffectiveness of the Everton strike force-

The Toffees spent handsomely this season and brought in some of the top class players this summer, including the likes of Spanish forward Sandro Ramirez. The player, however, has not been able to show the form that helped him notch up 14 goals for Malaga. The ex-England striker and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney also made a way back into the side this summer but has failed to make a mark for the Toffees so far, making it difficult for them to establish themselves as the contenders for a top four spot in the league table.
