Tottenham 1-0 Everton Goal: Keane (25th, CSC) for the Spurs
Micro-breathing for the Spurs .
A few days after seeing his, José Mourinho landed Monday evening at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the sleeves rolled up. Result, his Tottenham did not really shine, Hugo Lloris was on the verge of rebuilding his jaw at Heung-min Son, but the important thing is there: the Spurs regained the victory against Everton (1-0 ) and return to a small point in Arsenal.
In the game, however, not much to get your teeth into. This Tottenham-Everton will have taken more than an hour to really start and it will have been necessary to wait for the second period to see the young Anthony Gordon frame the first strike (50th), easily captured by Hugo Lloris. Before that, a small light, in spite of everything: at the twenty-fourth minute, some 120 seconds after a first unscrupulous shot from Lucas, Giovani Lo Celso, very prominent on Monday evening, made speak his aggressiveness to snatch a balloon and force Michael Keane to deflect it for his own goal (1-0, 24th). For the rest, nothing or so little, except for a small free kick from Dier (30th) and a too crossed shot from Richarlison (45th).

Spurs have taken four of six points in just two matches since the end of the break and need a win to retake seventh place from Arsenal. Team news Japhet Tanganga and Juan Foyth remain out for Tottenham, who is otherwise as healthy as its been since the calendar turned to 2020.

What they’re saying Chris Wilder on the evolution of big January buy Sander Berge: “Sander is going to be a really good player for us.
In the second period, the meeting got a little excited between the multiple changes, and if Everton struggled to worry Lloris, it was Tottenham who had the biggest opportunities through Son (54th, 64th , 65e), fell twice on a solid Pickford on its supports. However, no second goal, but Mourinho is pretty bad: his men keep a small chance to snatch a European ticket at the end of the season, while the Toffees , for their part, have probably lost all their chances to play something.
One evening to sort, therefore.
