Sigurdsson Salvages Draw For Spurs

A goal four minutes from time from Gylfi Sigurdsson saw Tottenham Hotspur salvage a point in their Barclays Premiership draw with Everton at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Everton were without their South African Steven Pienaar who was still suspended for a red card.

Spurs took the early lead through Emmanuel Adebayor, the Togolese striker scoring after only 33 seconds of play – registering his second goal in as many games.

He was superbly set-up by Jan Vertonghen who supplied a pin point cross for the Togolese international to finish.

Everton, though, were not to be outdone and quickly hit back in the 15th minute through Phil Jagielka, the England defender rising above Vertonghen to powerful head home the equalizer.

The rest of the half swung from end to end in an exciting manner, but neither side could really fashion a decent goal scoring chance.

The second 45 saw Everton starting the brighter of the two teams and they were rewarded for their efforts by a brilliant solo goal from Kevin Mirallas in the 53rd minute.

The Belgian international stole the ball in the midfield and drove towards goal, weaving his way past the defence before clinical firing the ball into the bottom left-hand corner of the net from 16-yards out.

After going in front Everton found themselves under severe pressure from the Spurs attack, but they looked to be holding firm until the 87th minute when Sigurdsson found the late equalizer to slavage a point for the home side.

The result sees Spurs in fourth place on the table tie on points with third placed Chelsea but with an inferior goal difference.

Everton are in sixth place, six points adrift of Spurs and the fourth place Champions League spot, but having played a game less.
