Tottenham Hotspur kicked off the new Premier League season with a 1-1 draw away at Everton on Saturday afternoon, with Mauricio Pochettino's side coming from behind to claim a point.

Handed a tricky away trip to Goodison Park to open the season, Spurs took on the Toffees and their new manager Ronald Koeman, and will have been hoping to make a winning start to the campaign - but they fell behind early on as Ross Barkley's inswinging free-kick missed everybody and nestled in the bottom corner of the net.

Spurs were handed a further blow as goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was taking off through injury in the first half, with Pochettino's men enduring a difficult opening 45 minutes of the season.

However, Tottenham took control of the game in the second half and grabbed an equaliser, as Erik Lamela headed home Kyle Walker's right-wing cross.

Spurs pushed for a winner, and went close as Vincent Janssen had a close-range shot blocked by goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, and the Dutchman then made a crucial save to tip Lamela's drive on to the crossbar, leaving the two sides to take a point apiece.

After the game, Tottenham players took to Twitter to send messages to supporters, with Jan Vertonghen looking to build on a strong second half display, whilst centre back partner Toby Alderweireld posted a photo from the match.

Right back Walker was also pleased with the second half display, as were goalscorer Erik Lamela and striker Harry Kane after a disappointing first half performance.

One of the main reactions came from playmaker Christian Eriksen, who not only commented on the game itself but also told fans not to believe everything they read on the internet about his future, after The Telegraph reported that the Dane wants a new contract worth £150,000-a-week.
