Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier named on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News HQ on Saturday afternoon (broadcast from 12pm, August 13, 2016) three Tottenham Hotspur players who hardly had any influence on the game against Everton.
Tottenham kicked off their 2016-17 Premier League campaign with a 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday afternoon.
The North London outfit did not play well in the first half at Goodison Park, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side stepped up their game in the second period and deserved to pick up a point.

“Not really,” said Le Tissier on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News HQ on Saturday afternoon (broadcast from 12pm, August 13, 2016) after the match (5:07pm) when asked if the Spurs players had any hangover from last season.
“I would probably say, though, that Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Eric Dier barely had any influence on the match at all.”

Midfielder Alli and Dier and striker Kane all started the game for Tottenham at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.
None of them played particularly well against Everton, but there is no need for concern yet.
A point against Everton at Goodison Park is not a bad result, and Spurs fans should remain optimistic about the 2015-16 campaign.
A top-four finish in the Premier League this season is certainly possible despite the disappointing result on Saturday.
