Tottenham 2-1 Everton: Soldado ends goal drought as Spurs see past Everton at White Hart Lane

Tottenham finally ended their poor run of form at home to deservedly beat Everton 2-1 at White Hart Lane, reports BBC Sport.

Spurs typically started slowly, and found themselves behind early into the game, courtesy of Kevin Mirallas. The Belgian winger cut inside from the left flank and curled an effort beautifully past Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris in goal to give the visitors the lead in the 15th minute.

But Tottenham fought back minutes later, with Christian Eriksen curling in a rebounded effort from Harry Kane to level proceedings. Right on the stroke of half-time, Roberto Soldado ended his goal drought to put the London side in the lead going into the break.

In the second-half, Everton looked to peg their way back into the game, but didn’t come to close. Seamus Coleman saw his close range effort thwarted by Lloris, and that was the visitors’ best chance of the game.

Tottenham ran out deserved winners to go level on points with 6th-placed Arsenal.
