Spurs scored their winner through Emmanuel Adebayor in the 83rd minute in a season which has perhaps been characterized by late goals. At the start of the season the problem was all about late goals conceded. Newcastle, West Bromwich Albion and Norwich were amongst the teams that scored late in matches to cost Spurs points. Perhaps the problem crystallized itself at Goodison Park in December. Two goals by Everton in injury time turned three points for Spurs into three points for The Toffees.
