Goodison Park was the place where Tottenham visited Everton in the Premier League. We have tonight’s player ratings for you. 

We had a thrilling match to cover today in the Premier League between Everton and Tottenham Hotspur. Jose Mourinho faces Carlo Ancelotti, the man who took his job at Real Madrid. This season hasn’t been that great for either of both managers but they were motivated to play each other tonight at Goodison Park. During the full 90 minutes, there wasn’t a clear dominant side as both made mistakes against their opponents.

On the Toffees’ side, Keane was the man who did two key defensive mistakes that cost Everton three points. He is arguably the main responsible for Tottenham’s chance to recover from what could’ve been a clear victory for the Merseyside squad. It didn’t start well for the defender as he served an “assist” for Harry Kane to open the count of the evening. A potent strike that only got Evertonians all fired up for the rest of the 90 minutes.

Sigurdsson responds to Kane in style. 

After Harry Kane’s goal, Sergio Reguilon made a defensive mistake of his own by committing a penalty in the first half. Gilfy Sigurdsson stepped up to take it without missing the shot, it was 1-1 at the break and still no clear winner. By the time an hour passed, Carlo Ancelotti decided to make some important changes. Seamus Coleman got on the pitch and he only needed a minute to make the impact he expected.

Sigurdsson scored an artistic collective goal in which Coleman led the charge. But Keane messed it all up a few minutes later by “assisting” Harry Kane on the equalizer for Spurs. With this result, both sides remain away from the Champions League spots but still fighting to get into the Europa League. Jose Mourinho’s days will come to an end if he doesn’t deliver on his promise when he first arrived.
