With ramifications at both ends of the table, a 1-1 draw wasn’t an ideal result for either side as Michael Keane’s last stunner earned the hosts a point. Harry Kane had opened the scoring with a penalty in the 68th minute, but Christian Stellini’s side couldn’t hold on, ending the day a place behind Newcastle United in the table.

Both sides also ended the match with just ten men on the field however, after Abdoulaye Doucoure and Lucas Moura were shown straight red cards. Doucoure’s red came on the stroke of the hour mark when he reacted to a challenge from Kane, raising his hands into his opponent’s face, giving David Coote no option but to reach for his red card.

Spurs looked to be relatively comfortable against ten men, but when Moura was given a straight red card for his tackle on Keane, they crumbled and allowed the Toffees to rescue a point.

Newcastle United are due to face both Spurs and Everton this month and it’s likely that the Spurs man will miss the game at St James’ Park on April 23. Moura will serve the third match of a three-game ban on that day, ruling him out of the game.

Doucoure, meanwhile, will also likely receive a three-game ban following his red card. However, he will serve his suspension in games against Manchester United, Fulham and Crystal Palace and thus, assuming the ban isn’t extended past the expected three-games, his first game back for the Toffees could come at Goodison Park against Newcastle on April 27.
