A superb brace from Harry Kane was not enough as Tottenham were forced to settle for a 2-2 Premier League draw at Everton on Friday night.

Tottenham player ratings

Hugo Lloris 8

Kept Spurs in the game in the first half as Everton peppered his goal and then came up with a vital save to deny King a winner.

Toby Alderweireld 6

An uncomfortable night as Richarlison and James exploited pockets of space between Spurs’ back three.

Joe Rodon 6

Given a stern test by Richarlison, who was constantly trying to chase him down. Just about stood up to it.

Eric Dier 5

Far from convincing as he struggled to cope with the movement of Everton’s forwards in behind.

Serge Aurier 5

Stretched the play and a useful outlet on the right, but did not hurt Everton enough with his delivery.

Moussa Sissoko 6

More of an impact in the second half when he began driving forward more to force Everton in reverse.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 6

Did plenty of running, but spent far too often chasing back towards his own goal as Everton found a way through the Spurs midfield

Sergio Reguilon 4

Utterly mindless challenge on James gifted Everton a way back into the game from which Spurs never recovered.

Tanguy Ndombele 6

Provided the cross for Kane’s opener – even if Everton’s defending provided as much of an assist. Didn’t have enough impact beyond that.

Heung-min Son 6

Largely isolated up front in the first half. He made the runs, but Spurs’ players just couldn’t find him. Brilliant solo run after the break might have got him a goal.

Harry Kane 8

Did what he does. That’s 30 goals for the season and 46 goal contributions. He is awesome. Spurs are not.

Substitutes

Erik Lamela (Ndombele, 64’) 7

Immediate impact – providing the cross for Kane to get his second and a Spurs equaliser

Lucas Moura (Reguilon, 64’) 5

Gave Spurs another outlet on the break, but he couldn’t match Lamela’s impact.

Dele Alli (Kane, 90)

Subs not used: Hart, Sanchez, Winks, Bale, Lo Celso, Tanganga, Moura
