    Everton Goodison 3

    Everton and Tottenham drew 0-0 at Goodison Park this afternoon.

    Everton and Spurs played out a 0-0 draw in today's lunch-time kick-off, with neither side able to take advantage of Liverpool and Chelsea's defeats yesterday.

    A win for either side this afternoon would have seen them climb to second in the table.  But as it was the point apiece saw Tottenham rise to fourth and the Toffees remain seventh, behind Southampton and Manchester City on goal-difference.

    Roberto Soldado might have put the visitors in the lead but failed to convert a header from an Aaron Lennon cross.  While in the second-half, Seamus Coleman had a penalty appeal waved away after a challenge from Jan Vertonghen.

    The match approached the 100-minute mark after an injury to Spurs 'keeper Hugo Lloris following a coming together with Romelu Lukaku.  But the Frenchman ultimately played on, helping his side secure another clean-sheet, and a share of the spoils.
