Everton hold Spurs to climb out of drop zone

Michael Keane’s late howitzer earned Everton a 1-1 draw against Tottenham, in a frantic Monday Night Football encounter which saw both sides receive reckless red cards.

Everton looked to have thrown their composure out the window when Abdoulaye Doucoure was sent off for violent conduct for an unnecessary push on Harry Kane, seven minutes before the Spurs striker put the visitors in front after Keane’s foul on Cristian Romero in the box.

But Tottenham substitute Lucas Moura was then given his marching orders for a high challenge on Keane, minutes before the Everton centre-back unleashed a long-range piledriver to rescue a point for the Toffees.

That goal was enough to take Everton out of the relegation zone and up to 15th in the table, and while Spurs’ point is enough to take them into the top four, they missed the chance to go one spot higher.
