Everton vs Tottenham player ratings: Harry Kane and Gylfi Sigurdsson star in score draw

Everton and Spurs shared the spoils at Goodison Park

Everton

Jordan Pickford, 5: Was not helped by his defence who gave Harry Kane two clear strikes at goal, neither of which the goalkeeper could do a great deal about.

Ben Godfrey, 5: Not one of his better games as Son Heung-min in particular threatened down Everton’s right on several occasions.

Michael Keane, 3: If he was unfortunate to play a role in Kane’s first goal, Keane was certainly at fault for the second, coming across to clear the ball but hitting only his teammate Mason Holgate and teeing up Spurs’ second goal in the process. A game to forget.

Mason Holgate, 4: Also played a role in Spurs’ second goal in what was a poor piece of communication between the defenders.

Alex Iwobi, 5: Ineffectual down Everton’s right side and replaced on the hour by Seamus Coleman.

Allan, 7: Led Everton’s pressing around the pitch which disrupted Spurs’ rhythm. A boost for Carlo Ancelotti to have his midfield general back in the side.

Tom Davies, 7: A good performance from the central midfielder who covered plenty of ground and kept things ticking.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, 8: A well-taken penalty a brilliantly converted second goal, guiding Coleman’s cross into the far corner with his left foot.

Lucas Digne, 6: A quiet game for the left wingback who was not his usual creative best.

James Rodriguez, 7: A typically bright performance from the Colombian, winning a penalty in the first half and probing well throughout.

Richarlison, 7: A performance full of energy and determination which caused plenty of problems for Spurs’ back line but he lacked end product, spurning some good chances.

Subs

Seamus Coleman, 7: Immediately had an impact, setting up Sigurdsson’s second goal.

Josh King, 6.

Tottenham

Hugo Lloris, 6: Made a couple of good saves and could do little about Everton’s two strikes.

Toby Alderweireld, 5: Seemed to struggle on the right of the defensive three.

Joe Rodon, 7: The best of Spurs’ ropey defensive line, going about his business with calm efficiency.

Eric Dier, 4: Like Alderweireld, seems more suited to a back four rather than a three and never settled. His side was exposed for Sigurdsson’s second goal.

Serge Aurier, 5: Another player who offered little throughout the game, often drawn away from his right wingback position at key moments.

Moussa Sissoko, 5: Plenty of energy off the ball but made some mistakes on the ball when under pressure.

Sergio Reguilon, 4: Conceded a penalty and was substituted on the hour.

Tanguy Ndombele, 5: Largely anonymous and taken off.

Son Heung-min, 6: Busy and occasionally dangerous drifting to the left side without producing his typical end product.

Harry Kane, 8: Two clinical finishes earned Spurs a point before he was substituted.

Subs

Lucas Moura, 6.

Erik Lamela, 5.

Dele Alli, n/a.
