It finished 0-0 at White Hart Lane with neither Tottenham or Everton able to make a breakthrough. The hosts were the better side but were made to rue missed chances, particularly in a dominant second half.
Harry Kane misses a good chance in the first half. He was put through by Ryan Mason but his low shot was stopped by the impressive Tim Howard.
Eric Dier was superb in central midfield and Dele Alli impressed off the bench, replacing the injured Mousa Dembele.
The referee came under a lot of criticism for a series of questionable decisions. I didn’t think he did too badly but he was keen to blow his whistle for just about every challenge, breaking up the play during an exciting period of the match, which was frustrating.
Social media was full of differing opinions after the game – some positive, some negative. Here’s the best of the post match tweets.
Well we always wondered what'd happen when Kane's goals dried up and my word it's not good is it?

Gah! That could have been 3, 4, even 5. Lack of composure in front of goal from #THFC. A real pity because we played well for long periods.

#thfc FT 0-0. Spurs certainly had the chances to win that. A welcome clean sheet but they go into the international break winless.

No idea how we didn't win. Over 20 chances, really need to be more clinical, it's costing us far too much. Decent showing up to final third.

we drew, but at least we deserved to win for once because we were genuinely better

Just can't put it to bed. Not great with decision making. Sigh. #COYS

Just 3 points & 3 goals for Spurs from 4 games. Early days etc but already undercooked squad left short.

Spurs actually playing really decent, solid football. Created (more than) enough to win and limited Everton to very few chances.

Three games unbeaten. Having one striker in the squad for the first four games clearly works. Levynomics #coys

Boos were for ref, not the team. Best atmosphere I have seen in a while. Unlucky spurs

I never pay attention until 6 games in. Do you honestly think Chelsea won't be 1st/2nd?

Pros: We defended very well, Lukaku didn't get a sniff Cons: Too slow in attack, but we knew that.Will improve with signings.Not a disaster!

No doubt with a regular run of games Deli Ali will easily be a regular in a #THFC starting XI, kid just needs games, potentially has it all.
