Everton vs Tottenham: Cenk Tosun scores late as Toffees force draw

- Everton vs Tottenham finished all square at Goodison Park

- Dele Alli and Cenk Tosun netted a goal each for either side

- Spurs, however, remain 11th on the log, with Everton hovering above relegation

Everton staged a dramatic comeback at Goodison Park on Sunday, November 3, to force 10-man Tottenham Hotspur to a 1-1 draw in a thrilling Premier League encounter.

Both sides came into the match in poor shape having struggled in the opening weeks of the new season.

The Sunday clash therefore provided both Marco Silva and Mauricio Pochettino a golden chance to turn their season around.

However, despite Spurs dominating the opening exchanges of the clash, they had to wait until the second half to find the back of the net through Dele Alli.

Alli, who has come under immense criticism in the recent past rolled his effort into the corner past Pickford in the 63rd minute, capitalizing on Son Heung-Min's perfectly-placed pass.
