Everton entertained Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a win at home in the Premier League. The Toffees made a solid start to the game and managed to get to the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.
Abdoulaye Doucoure let his teammates down by getting sent off in the 58th minute. Spurs made their numerical advantage count and managed to take the lead just ten minutes later when Harry Kane scored from the penalty spot. Lucas Moura saw a red card as well in the 88th minute which gave Everton the belief to go on and score the equaliser in the 90th minute when Michael Keane found the back of the net. The contest ended with the Toffees earning a hard-fought 1-1 draw in front of their home fans.
