EPL: Tottenham draw 2-2 with Everton to finish fourth

14 May 2019

In fact they've kept six clean sheets in their last seven matches, and I'm quietly confident they'll record another. To be ready is our first priority. For reasons best known to the Colombian, he headed a wayward ball behind for a corner when it was sailing out for a goal kick with no one around him and he then made a mess of the ensuing set-piece. Harry Winks is still missing from first-team action, although Serge Aurier is available again.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham will be going all out to secure a fourth successive top-three Premier League finish as they close their domestic season on Sunday.

"The characteristic of this season is never giving up". He gets a firm connection but it's straight at Lloris from eight yards out.

As the ball was swung in, the Everton defenders failed to clear and it fell kindly to Dier, who gleefully put the ball into the goal. This after he confirmed there was no update as to whether Gomes would remain at Everton next season. Lookman drives purposefully into the middle, and picks out Sigurdsson, who slides it to Walcott on the right.

He joined Everton past year for £18 million from Barcelona, but is now valued at twice that figure after a successful first season in the Premier League.

Three minutes later and Everton were ahead as Cenk Tosun managed to score. The home side worked the ball through a large hole in the Blues' back line that put Erik Lamela into a risky position but he was bundled over by Gomes a couple of yards outside the box, setting Eriksen up to rap home the equaliser. The free kick was inch ideal, as his often are, and sailed past Pickford to make it 2-2.

Had Everton been able to hold out a bit longer, they might well have gone on to win because Tottenham had caused them few problems in the second half.

The Foxes are ending the season in decent form and I'm sure Brendan Rodgers will have his men fully wound up for this fixture, wanting to continue the momentum and positive vibes into the summer and beyond.

Much will depend on their ability to keep their best players, with defender Kurt Zouma and midfielder Andre Gomes both ending their loan spells.

Can't complain in any way shape or form the way we have ended the season with the exception of two horror shows at Newcastle and Fulham.

Their excellent recent run of form includes five victories from their last seven games including wins over Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

On the Barcelona loanee's position, Silva said: "I know all the rumours around".

All in, today's game at Spurs, a great result. "As a club, we have to do everything to sign him". "We are creating history because we are making it, but if we can win we will write history and change the perception of this fantastic club".
