Commentary

That’s all for now. Goodbye!
It means that it’s as you were in the league. Everton are eighth on 49 points, one shy of Spurs, but it means Liverpool and West Ham can both increase the gap in the chase for Europe should they win this weekend.
It’s over at Goodison Park, where it has finished 2-2. Everton will be frustrated not to have come away with a win, which arguably their performance deserved. Sigurdsson scored both of their goals, with Kane – who worryingly for Spurs limped off injured late on – netting twice for the visitors, capitalising on two defensive errors.
90' + 5' FULL TIME: EVERTON 2-2 TOTTENHAM.
90' + 4' It’s another Everton attempt, but James was always off balance as he tried to shoot from the edge of the area, and Lloris watches it go wide.
D. Alli
H. Kane
90' + 3' This could be a concern – a real concern – for Spurs. Kane is down, clutching his right ankle. The physios are on, and Mourinho isn’t taking any risks. Kane is off, making way for Alli, but that does not look good for Kane, who is hobbling off, or Tottenham.
90' + 2' Another corner for Everton, with King’s cross having diverted out off Dier. James’ corner goes through a crowd and is met by Godfrey, but he side-foots out of play.
90' + 1' There will be three minutes of added time. Will either team snatch the points?
89' James still looks full of energy and is leading the Everton charge here. He drives forward from midfield and links up with Digne to win a corner. His cross goes in towards Keane, who only manages to concede a free-kick for climbing on Rodon.
88' James spots a run from Digne, and puts it right where the full-back wanted it. Digne tries to volley his cross into the six-yard box, but just can’t get it right and Spurs clear their lines.
87' That could have been the opportunity for Everton, will they be made to rue missing it? If that had been Kane in place of King or Richarlison, then surely the net would have been rippling.
85' WHAT A CHANCE! That should be 3-2 to Everton! James splits the Tottenham defence with a perfect pass. King gets a shot off which is saved by Lloris. Richarlison rushes onto the rebound, only to send his effort over with the goal gaping, albeit it did come back to him quickly.
J. King
T. Davies
84' An attacking change for Everton, though it could leave them open in midfield. Davies is off, with King coming on to bolster the front line.
82' Davies stands on top of James, meaning the Colombian’s stray touch cannot be collected by a team-mate. Spurs counter, with Lamela trying to get a shot away, but it deflects off a defender and then back to Pickford.
80' James stays down after being on the receiving end of a tackle from Lamela, and it looked to be a foul. From the resulting break, Kane gets a shot off, but Godfrey’s deflection takes it kindly into Pickford’s path.
78' After a spell of Spurs pressure, Everton are back on the front foot. A draw really doesn’t do either team any favours in their respective hopes of getting Europe, and both sides are going for the three points.
76' Godfrey is fine to carry on and play resumes. Kane almost finds his way through a crowd of Everton defenders, but the Toffees manage to clear their lines. Moments later, Lamela finds space in midfield and drives forward before getting off a shot, but it soars well over.
74' A brief pause as Godfrey receives treatment for a cut to his hand.
72' SO CLOSE! It’s almost a perfect hat-trick for Kane, who flicked on a cross with his head. It loops beyond the diving Pickford, but flicks away off the top of the post.
71' Kane has netted nine goals in his last seven Premier League appearances against Everton, scoring five braces.
70' Ancelotti will be fuming. His team had worked hard and produced a moment of quality to take the lead, only for Keane to once again make a basic error. It’s not been a good night for the defender, who isn’t looking likely to make England’s Euros squad after he was left out of the March internationals.
H. Kane
Goal
68' GOOOAAALLL!!! KANE MAKES IT 2-2! It’s another dreadful mistake from Keane, and once again it’s Kane who benefits. Keane heads straight against Holgate, and the ball rebounds to Kane, who doesn’t even take a touch before lashing home. That’s a let-off for Spurs, but Everton only have themselves to blame.
68' Everton have been worthy of their lead, given the chances they created in the first half, though Spurs had certainly got something of a foothold prior to Sigurdsson’s second goal, and the visitors have plenty of attacking talent on the pitch.
66' Only against Chelsea (six) has Sigurdsson now scored more Premier League goals than against Tottenham (five).
Lucas Moura
Reguilón
64' Reguilon, who of course conceded the first-half penalty, has also gone off, with Lucas coming on. The Spain left-back is clearly unhappy with that decision.
E. Lamela
T. Ndombèlé
64' No time wasted from Mourinho, who turns straight to his bench. First, Ndombele makes way for Lamela, who scored in the FA Cup tie between these teams.
63' That is Sigurdsson's first Premier League brace since he netted twice against Cardiff City in February 2019.
S. Coleman
Assist
62' It was fantastic work from Coleman, who got himself high upfield and pushing on in behind Spurs’ defence, something Iwobi had failed to do.
G. Sigurðsson
Goal
62' GOAL!!! SIGURDSSON MAKES IT 2-1 TO EVERTON! Well, what an impact that is from Coleman! He’s involved immediately, playing a fantastic one-two with Richarlison before sending in a cross for Sigurdsson who, on the half-volley, side-foots a brilliant finish into the left-hand corner.
S. Coleman
A. Iwobi
61' A first change of the game now, with Coleman coming on for Everton, replacing Iwobi.
60' NO GOAL! Allan winks a pass over the top to Richarlison, who controls it and slides it home beyond Lloris, but the flag then goes up for offside.
59' Kane is one of only three players to score 10 Premier League goals against Everton, after Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer (16 each).
57' OFF THE POST! Son’s corner is delivered flat to the near post and Alderweireld gets there, but his header clatters away off the upright. That's Spurs' best chance since their goal, and a warning for Everton.
56' CLOSE! Spurs again get through the Everton midfield, with Kane playing the role of provider as he turns Allan and feeds Ndombele, whose strike takes a huge deflection off Digne and loops over.
56' A perfectly timed tackle from Davies, who is on a booking and had to get it just right. Reguilon had punctured Everton’s press and was rushing towards the area, but the midfielder made a brilliant challenge.
55' Everton are once more having real joy when they press high, though that does of course leave them open to breaks. It’s a risk that is worth taking, so far, though, as it seems Everton’s best route to goal.
53' On the break, Iwobi finds Richarlison, who has Sigurdsson in support. He attempts to find the Iceland international, but the pass is directed behind him, and Alderweireld is able to intervene.
52' CHANCE! Keane is isolated one-v-one with Son, who easily gets the better of the Everton defender. Pickford rushes out to close the angle, though, and makes a good save at his near post. Everton under some pressure, now.
50' Great defending from Digne! Iwobi sloppily loses possession and Kane feeds Dier. The centre-back’s cross is floated towards the back post, but Digne is on hand to deny Hojbjerg a free header.
49' James’ second corner finds a team-mate – Richarlison rushing in from the edge of the area to meet it, but he sends his header over. Spurs attack and some hesitation from Pickford causes an issue for Everton's defence, but Godfrey scrambles it clear.
48' Sigurdsson and Digne combine down the left, and Aurier is forced into conceding a corner. Keane tries to get to James’ delivery, but Rodon heads it out of play.
47' Kane's earlier opener means he has overtaken Jermain Defoe to move into joint-seventh on the all-time list of Premier League scorers with 163, level with Robbie Fowler.
46' The second half is up and running!
Everton have had plenty of joy from pressing Tottenham’s defence, and getting Sigurdsson and James involved high up the pitch, so surely it will be a tactic Ancelotti looks to employ again after the restart. Mourinho, meanwhile, must find a way for his star men – Kane and Son – to get on the ball. Kane has had one chance and taken it, but that was his only touch in the area so far.
It’s 1-1 at the interval. Kane gave Tottenham the lead in the 27th minute, capitalising on a mistake from Keane. But other than that, Spurs have not managed to have a shot on target, and it’s Everton – who restored parity through Sigurdsson’s penalty – who finished the half on the front foot.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: EVERTON 1-1 TOTTENHAM.
45' + 2' Richarlison drives down on Spurs’ defence, but gets caught in a tangle between Alderweireld and Rodon.  There didn’t appear to be a foul, but Richarlison goes down holding his right knee. He will carry on, though.
45' + 1' MISS! James delivers a wonderful ball which flashes across the edge of the six-yard box. It skids up off the turf and Godfrey meets it, but he just misjudges the bounce and sends his header over.
45' There will be three minutes of added time, and Everton have a free-kick down on the left. James stands over it, though there is of course no Calvert-Lewin to aim for…
44' Holgate is back on his feet and the game will carry on with a drop-ball.
43' A pause in play now, with Holgate requiring some treatment after he clashed heads with his team-mate Davies – the duo having both gone in to win a header.
42' More half-chances for Everton. Sigurdsson slips it into Richarlison, who sets himself and gets a block away that Rodon has to block Richarlison meets the resulting corner,  but he has to generate all of the power on it, and Lloris makes a comfortable stop.
40' This match has certainly sparked into life since Kane’s opener. Everton have had the better of it. Indeed, Spurs’ only shot on target has been their goal.
38' SAVE! That’s a fantastic stop from Lloris! Spurs again gave it away in their own third and Everton pounced – Sigurdsson sliding it through to James. He does well to get it out of his feet under pressure from a defender, but Lloris sticks out a hand to keep it at 1-1.
37' James creates space with a clever drop of the shoulder and, with few options on, he goes for goal. The shot is well struck, but Lloris is behind it. Seconds later, Everton win the ball back high upfield, but Iwobi’s shot hits Sigurdsson.
36' Sigurdsson has scored 12 Premier League penalties – six for Swansea and the same amount for Everton. He is one of only seven players to score six or more spot-kicks for two Premier League sides, while Lloris has not saved any of the last nine penalties he has faced in the top flight.
34' It’s a disappointing free-kick from Sigurdsson, who strikes it straight into the wall.
33' Sigurdsson has scored his last four Premier League penalties, and Everton are on the up now, with Richarlison drawing a foul around 20 yards out. Sigurdsson and James stand over it...
G. Sigurðsson
Penalty Goal
31' GOAL! Sigurdsson scored a penalty in the FA Cup tie and makes no mistake this time, calmly sending Lloris the wrong way to restore parity. It's 1-1 – we aren't in for another nine-goal thriller, are we?
30' PENALTY TO EVERTON! Here’s an immediate chance for the Toffees to respond! James swung back a leg to try and make contact with a pass into the area, but Reguilon clatters into him, and sends the Colombian to the floor, with the referee pointing straight to the spot.
29' Kane has now scored 20 Premier League goals this season, the fifth season he has scored 20+ goals in the competition; only Alan Shearer (seven) and Sergio Aguero (six) have done so in more Premier League seasons.
28' Everton will be hugely disappointed, as they had been building some momentum. Spurs, though, have the world class quality up front that their hosts lack, and Kane made Keane pay for his error.
H. Kane
Goal
27' GOAL! Spurs take the lead! It’s their first sighting of goal, but the visitors have gone ahead. Keane is at fault, accidentally heading a cross straight to Kane, who takes a brilliant first touch before slamming home from eight yards out. It’s 1-0 Tottenham!
26' Richarlison’s opportunity came about because James picked the tough, but correct, pass. Much of his work so far has been done deeper, or tracking Spurs runners, but if Everton can get him on the ball in the final third, he has already shown a flash of his quality.
23' CHANCE! The first opportunity of the game goes Everton's way. James found Richarlison with a superb pass, but after taking a good first touch, the forward directed his shot too close to Lloris, who gets down low to his left to parry it away.
T. Davies
Yellow Card
21' James finally has some space, and plays a neat, crisp pass into Digne, whose cross is a poor one. Once the play breaks down, Davies is booked for an earlier tackle on Ndombele, with the referee having played advantage.
20' The last four meetings between Everton and Tottenham at Goodison Park in all competitions have produced 22 goals. There has only been two shots so far in this game, however, with neither goalkeeper tested as of yet.
18' Ndombele will be fine to carry on, and play resumes.
17' Play is stopped by referee Michael Oliver after Ndombele goes down, crying in pain, after a tussle with Godfrey. The replays, however, show there was very little in it, though because the Spurs midfielder was clutching his face, the physios have come on.
15' It has certainly been a scrappy opening. Both sides are attempting to play their way through the pitch, but it is breaking down once they reach the final third.
13' Good skill by Richarlison to get out of a tight spot down the left, but instead of laying it off silly to James, the Brazil forward tries to pick out Iwobi, only to lash his attempted pass straight out of play.
11' James was a constant thorn in Spurs’ side in the reverse fixture, and Mourinho has clearly tasked his midfielders with hassling the former Real Madrid playmaker whenever he has the ball. It is limiting James’ impact, though will open up space for Everton’s other attackers if they can make the most of it.
9' Everton’s 1-0 win over Spurs in the reverse fixture ended a run of 15 league games without a win against them (D7 L8). They have not done the league double over Spurs since the 1985-86 campaign, under Howard Kendall. 
P. Højbjerg
Yellow Card
8' Godfrey makes one of his trademark, surging runs from deep, but his pass into Iwobi is slightly undercut, and the Nigeria midfielder’s touch back to James subsequently asks too much of the Colombian, who concedes a throw. Spurs can’t keep hold of it, though, and it results in Hojbjerg fouling Sigurdsson and receiving the game’s first caution.
5' Former Spurs player Sigurdsson played a part in all five of Everton’s goals in the FA Cup meeting between these teams earlier this year, and he has just had the hosts’ first shot, though it was an overly ambitious effort which soars well off target.
4' It does indeed seem to be a back three for Everton, with Iwobi pushed up on the right, meaning Sigurdsson and James will be tasked with flanking Richarlison up front, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin out injured.
2' An early chance wasted for Spurs, with Son drawing a foul from Davies. Reguilon looked to stand up a cross to the far post, but his delivery was way overhit.
1' KICK-OFF! It's eighth place hosting seventh place today, and it's the visitors who get the game underway!
It was a wild ride the last time these sides met – Everton winning 5-4 in an FA Cup classic. The Toffees also won the reverse league fixture, claiming a 1-0 victory on the opening day of the season. The teams are out, and kick-off is just moments away!
Mourinho has gone with a back three, as Alderweireld comes back into the defence. It’s one of two changes from the side that started in the defeat to Manchester United, with Lo Celso and Lucas dropping out – Sissoko is the other player to come in.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Davinson Sanchez, Harry Winks, Gareth Bale, Erik Lamela, Joe Hart, Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli, Japhet Tanganga, Lucas Moura.
TOTTENHAM (3-5-2): Hugo Lloris; Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Joe Rodon; Serge Aurier, Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Moussa Sissoko, Sergio Reguilon; Son Heung-min, Harry Kane.
Injuries have certainly compounded Everton’s poor form as of late, and Yerry Mina is the latest casualty after sustaining a problem against Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday. Ancelotti is able to welcome back Pickford and Allan, however, with Iwobi – who could well be playing as a wing-back – also coming in to start in what appears to be a four-pronged attack. 
EVERTON SUBS: Joshua King, Niels Nkounkou, Seamus Coleman, Joao Virginia, Robin Olsen, Nathan Broadhead, Kyle John, Isaac Price, Reece Welch.
EVERTON (4-2-3-1): Jordan Pickford; Mason Holgate, Micheal Keane, Ben Godfrey, Lucas Digne; Tom Davies, Allan; James Rodriguez, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alex Iwobi; Richarlison.
Spurs, meanwhile, have been plagued by inconsistency, but a win today would see them move, temporarily at least, above Liverpool and into sixth place. The pressure is certainly on Jose Mourinho, however, though Tottenham fans do at least have an EFL Cup final to look forward to next week, albeit one which sees them take on Manchester City.
Everton looked well set to possibly challenge for the Champions League places this term, but a run of four games without a win has left them in eighth place, and the Toffees need a victory to push themselves back into top-six contention. However, their home form is dismal – Carlo Ancelotti’s team have won just one of their last eight home league games.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of tonight’s Premier League clash between Everton and Tottenham – a potentially crucial meeting in regards to the chase for European qualification.
