An improved second half performance from Tottenham earned the visitors a draw at Everton on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign.

Ross Barkley’s free-kick bounced all the way in to give the hosts the lead inside five minutes. Things got worse for Spurs when Hugo Lloris was forced off with a hamstring injury.

After a poor first half display, Mauricio Pochettino’s side were much improved after the break thanks to the introduction of new boy Vincent Janssen.

Tottenham gradually became the better side, eventually equalising when Erik Lamela nodded in an excellent Kyle Walker cross. Spurs had chances to win it, but they’ll take a point after struggling to initially get into the game.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.
