Tottenham’s long wait for a Premier League away victory goes on after they conceded deep into stoppage-time to draw 1-1 with Everton.

Dele Alli’s fine second-half goal put Spurs in front, but Cenk Tosun headed home in the 97th minute after Heung Min Son had earlier been sent off for a nasty foul on Andre Gomes.

Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.

Paulo Gazzaniga, 6 – Didn’t have a save of note to make and was helpless with the goal.

Serge Aurier, 5 – Typically clumsy showing from the right-back.

Davinson Sanchez, 5 – Like Aurier, shaky on the ball, but dealt with the theatrical Richarlison relitavely well.

Toby Alderweireld, 7 – Another assured display from Tottenham’s best defender.

Ben Davies, 6 – Replaced the suspended Danny Rose and although he doesn’t offer the same attacking threat or pace as the England full-back, he is better defensively and battled well throughout.

Tanguy Ndombele, 6 – Started off really impressively with some classy touches, but gradually got worse as the game went in. His passing was poor overall.

Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Typically energetic. Protected the back-four well.

Dele Alli, 8 – This is the Dele Alli that every single Spurs supporter wants to see. Played an excellent pass that put Lucas in the clear, breaking the deadlock moments later with a composed run and finish. Hopefully this is the start of things to come.

Christian Eriksen, 2 – Shouldn’t be anywhere near a Tottenham team ever again. Gutless from start to finish. Bottled tackles, misplaced passes and didn’t look remotely interested.

Son Heung-min, 5 – Quiet afternoon that was overshadowed by a harsh red card for the tackle on Gomes and was inconsolable from then on in.

Lucas Moura, 4 – Fed off scraps all afternoon and when a one chance came his way in the second-half, his first-touch let him down after a fine Dele pass.


Giovani Lo Celso, 6 – Looked bright and sharp, but the red card killed his momentum and was forced to do a lot of defending late on.

Juan Foyth, N/A – Came on in the latter stages.

Ryan Sessegnon, N/A – Made his Tottenham debut in the final seconds.



  1. You must have been watching a different game to me.
    Dele was poor like the rest of the team.
    He took he goal well but thats not a return to form. Far from it.

  2. Reading Spurs fans criticism of Eriksen is as bad and boring as discussing Brexit.
    Surely the responsibility is with that maniac Pocc who keeps on picking him.
    Pocc’s actions are like inviting Levy to sack him.

  3. Spot on Delboy, I think Poch is looking for a Christmas sack full of cash and thinking he’s straight in at Man Utd or Real Madrid
    I can’t imagine what side we will be putting out this time next year as all our quality will have jumped ship come summer

    • Agree. For a long time Poch has been beyond stubborn not only starting Eriksen, but for years almost never substituting him when he has been a disaster. I have never understood this and this decision is destroying our club. Injuries aside why would Los Celso or Winks not start instead. Ndombele should never have come off before the gutless actor . How is Eriksen even training with the first team? He should be nowhere near the squad. If we are panicking trying to keep him it will be as bad a mistake as signing the other gutless actor Bentley. Just forget about him. We will not get any money and dear god do not keep him. Who wants a player with that Ego who doesn’t think he has to tackle or is too chicken and trots around waiting to take the glory for a pass after everyone else has done the work. 1 successful free kick now out of his last 224 , and throw in useless corners, and three penalties in a row missed. He is a myth. Never again POCH WAKE UP !!!

      I could not believe Eriksen was starting.

  4. Christian Eriksen is a player who loves playing football and Tottenham don’t do that for the moment. Eriksen is the player in Tottenham. with highest football intelligence and vision in playng with the ball, not without it., and you have to have players around him that understand his launguise of how to play. A team has to be built up around Eriksen to succed, but that never happend in Tottenham, because to many players think, that they are “Eriksenner” but sorry, that they’ll never be.

    The problem in Eriksens time in Tottenhan is, that whenever he plays as an offensive creative player the team lack abillity to get the ball up to him, and when he goes down to take control from a more re- drawn position there’s noone to take over with creative offensive ideers.

    As the sitiuation is right now Eriksen has to stay on the background . He can’t go in there and say heyyy this is my way of playng , because he is not the future of Tottenham and noone in there will support him now. Other players has to step in and take control.
