Sigurdsson & Zouma With 7; Walcott Gets 7.5 | Everton Players Rated From Draw Vs Tottenham Hotspur

Everton finished the season on a good note as they came back from a one-goal deficit to draw the match against Tottenham Hotspur in their own backyard. The Toffees finished the 2018/19 season on the eighth place in the Premier League table which could be considered as a decent finish after their mid-season blues.

Spurs took the lead early in the match with an opportunistic goal from Eric Dier and kept the lead intact until the 69th minute. The former Arsenal man Theo Walcott brought the visitors back in the match with a sliding finish. The Toffees took the lead in the 72nd minute via Cenk Tosun after Hugo Lloris failed to hold onto the ball following a goalmouth scramble. However, Christian Eriksen ended the Everton fans’ hopes of taking all three points from their last match of the season with a brilliant freekick to deceive Jordan Pickford as the game ended in a stalemate. 

Here is how the Everton players were rated from their draw against Tottenham Hotspur.

Jordan Pickford: 6.5

Made some excellent saves throughout the match. Could have done nothing to stop any of the goals though.

Kurt Zouma: 7

Did well to keep Llorente under check. Replaced Coleman in the right back position successfully and looked solid defensively.

Michael Keane: 6

Looked a little on the backfoot after conceding the early goal. Came back strongly in the later stages of the first half and had a decent second half.

Yerry Mina: 6.5

His defensive skills were put to the test against the guile of Moura, and he fared well. However, he is to be blamed for not being able to clear the ball which allowed Dier to take a shot on goal.

Lucas Digne: 7

Went up the pitch and delivered some decent balls in the box. His backtracking was spot on as well.

Morgan Schneiderlin: 6.5

Made some very good interceptions in the middle of the pitch to break down the opposition attacks. Looked a little tired in the second half and was substituted.

Idrissa Gueye: 7

Kept getting the ball up the pitch with many accurate passes. Took control of the midfield in the second half against Sissoko.

Bernard: 6.5

Took a good attempt on goal to force Lloris into action. Kept getting into channels on several occasions. Looked a little subdued in the second half.

Theo Walcott: 7.5

Looked lively throughout the match and kept threatening the opposition with his pace and precision in the box. Brought his team back into the game against his former derby rivals with a sliding effort.

Gylfi Sigurðsson: 7

Kept aiming for the goal whenever he got the ball in and around the box. Opened up the opposition defence with several brilliant passes.

Cenk Tosun: 6.5

Put in a diligent shift up front and brought out a few good saves from Lloris. Took advantage of the goalmouth scramble to get his side in the lead as he helped the ball trickle past the line.

Substitutes

Andre Gomes: 6

Did well for his limited time on the pitch.

Ademola Lookman: 6

Looked to get the ball up the pitch as he deceived the opposition defenders with his footwork.
