A stalemate at Goodison Park saw both sides pass up on the chance to go second in the table. Spurs had the better of the first half but Everton grew into the game late.

    Tim Howard

    Pulled off some very smart saves when his side was under pressure. His kicking was off today but in great shot stopping form.

  • Leighton Baines

    Leighton Baines

    Given the difficult task of nullifying the threat of Lennon and Walker. Dealt with that well and was a constant menace going forward.

  • Phil Jagielka

    Phil Jagielka

    A very solid display from the captain and did well to keep Soldado quiet throughout.

    Sylvain Distin

    Continues to defy his advancing years with his recent displays. Never beaten for pace.

    James McCarthy Flop of the Match

    A difficult afternoon for the Irish international. Early booking affected his physical style of play and was caught on the ball too often.

  • Gareth Barry

    Gareth Barry

    Keeps play ticking over with his experience and range of passing. Allowed Everton to gather momentum when it needed.

  • Leon Osman

    Leon Osman

    Brought back into the side after his match-winning display last week but failed to have the same impact. Replaced in the second half.

  • Steven Pienaar

    Steven Pienaar

    Always looked to get involved against his former club. Linked up well with Baines as he so often does and looked a threat on the ball throughout.

  • Seamus Coleman

    Seamus Coleman

    Was left on his own down his flank on many occasions with Mirallas not tracking back. Perhaps lucky not to concede a penalty early on.

  • Kevin Mirallas

    Kevin Mirallas

    Drifted in and out of the game and didn't prove enough defensive cover. A frustrating afternoon.

  • Romelu Lukaku

    Romelu Lukaku

    Wasn't provided with the service needed to add to his scoring tally and was quiet throughout.

Substitutions

  • Ross Barkley

    Ross Barkley

    Introduced to add some pace and did exactly that. His first touch saw a good effort go just over and looked composed on the ball.

  • Nikica Jelavic

    Nikica Jelavic

    Brought on late to repeat his match-winning antics of last season but failed to do so.

  • Gerard Deulofeu

    Gerard Deulofeu

    A clever run and chip over the keeper could have won it for his side but was well met by Lloris. Offered moments of skill.

  • Hugo Lloris

    Hugo Lloris

    Very rarely called into action in the first half. Brave when meeting crosses after a collision with Lukaku

  • Kyle Walker

    Kyle Walker

    A very important position against Everton given the threat of Baines and Pienaar. Dealt with that superbly and was dangerous going forward throughout.

  • Jan Vertonghen

    Jan Vertonghen Top of the Match

    Dependent in defense and enjoyed a lot of space going forward down his flank. Spent a lot of the afternoon as a supporting wide man and created several opportunities.

  • Vlad Iulian Chiricheş

    Vlad Iulian Chiricheş

    Dealt with the threat of Lukaku superbly and looked composed throughout. A stand out last-minute challenge prevented a certain goal for Mirallas.

    Michael Dawson

    The skipper organized his defense well and will have been pleased with his afternoon's work. Rarely looks under pressure.

  • Aaron Lennon

    Aaron Lennon

    His pace is an obvious threat but didn't use it enough to trouble Baines. Replaced mid-way through the second half.

  • Paulinho

    A quietly productive afternoon for the Brazilian. Nothing outstanding but assured in possession.

  • Lewis Holtby

    Lewis Holtby

    Really does cause havoc in that hole behind the front man. Collected the ball in many dangerous areas and tested Howard on several occasions.

  • Andros Townsend

    Andros Townsend

    Becoming a key player for this Spurs side and often saw his teammates looking to use his pace when in trouble. Tracked back well when needed.

  • Sandro

    Sandro

    His early strike could have given his side the lead and provided a robust midfield display that his manager was looking for. Replaced in the second half.

  • Roberto Soldado

    Roberto Soldado

    Should have scored early on and failed to bother the Everton defense as much as he would have liked after that.

    Brought on too late to make an impression.
