A stalemate at Goodison Park saw both sides pass up the chance to go second in the table, the visitors enjoying the better of the first half but the Toffees coming back into it

By Gary Maiden at Goodison Park

  • Tim Howard

    3.50

    Tim Howard

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

  • Leighton Baines
    32
    4
    3.00

    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
    27

    3.50

    Phil Jagielka

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

  • Sylvain Distin
    37

    3.50

    Sylvain Distin

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

  • James McCarthy

    James McCarthy Flop of the Match

    A difficult afternoon for the Ireland international. An early booking affected his physical style of play and he was caught on the ball too often.

  • Gareth Barry
    29
    4
    3.50

    Gareth Barry

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

  • Leon Osman
    10
    10
    2.50

    Leon Osman

    Brought back into the side after his match-winning display last time out but failed to have the same impact. Was replaced in the second half.

  • Steven Pienaar
    14
    12
    3.00

    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
    20
    7
    2.50

    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
    14
    15
    2.50

    Kevin Mirallas

    Drifted in and out of the game and did not prove enough defensive cover. A frustrating afternoon.

  • Romelu Lukaku
    33
    10
    2.50

    Romelu Lukaku

    Was not provided with the service needed to add to his scoring tally and was quiet throughout. Injured his knee in a collision with Lloris late on and was substituted.

Substitutions

  • Ross Barkley
    35
    4
    3.00

    Ross Barkley

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

  • Nikica Jelavic
    12
    8

    Nikica Jelavic

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

  • Gerard Deulofeu
    54
    2
    3.00

    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
    44
    13
    3.00

    Hugo Lloris

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

  • Kyle Walker
    32
    16
    3.50

    Kyle Walker

    Occupied a very important position against Everton, given the threat of Baines and Pienaar, but dealt with that superbly and was dangerous going forward throughout.

  • Jan Vertonghen
    64
    18
    4.00

    Jan Vertonghen Top of the Match

    Dependent in defence 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
    63
    16
    3.50

    Vlad Iulian Chiricheş

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

  • Michael Dawson
    35
    14
    3.50

    Michael Dawson

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

  • Aaron Lennon
    10
    33
    2.50

    Aaron Lennon

    His pace is an obvious threat but did not use it enough to trouble Baines. Replaced midway through the second half.

  • Paulinho
    30
    23
    3.00

    Paulinho

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

  • Lewis Holtby
    40
    44
    4.00

    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
    26
    34
    3.00

    Andros Townsend

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

  • Sandro
    28
    19
    3.00

    Sandro

    His vicious 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
    11
    45
    2.50

    Roberto Soldado

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

Substitutions

  • Mousa Dembélé
    27
    17
    3.00

    Mousa Dembélé

    Introduced in the second half and his compsure on the ball allowed Spurs back into the game when they looked on the ropes.

  • Gylfi Sigurdsson
    46
    14
    3.50

    Gylfi Sigurdsson

    The Spurs fans love getting him on the ball due to his shooting ability. Tested Howard on a few occasions.

  • Christian Eriksen
    49
    24

    Christian Eriksen

    Brought on too late to make an impression.
