Everton faced off against Tottenham Hotspur at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this evening as they looked to grab a good result on the road. The Toffees made a solid start to the game and managed to hold the home side to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.
However, Spurs got themselves ahead in the 59th minute via Harry Kane’s penalty before Pierre-Emile Højbjerg made the points secure for them late in the game. The contest ended with the Toffees suffering a poor 2-0 loss away from home.
Let’s take a look at how each Everton player performed during the contest against Spurs.
