He needed to get that right and replays show he did, although Mirallas felt he was fouled and is booked for dissent.

Chris Green from Huddersfield says: 'Goodison Park is one of the toughest places to come to in the Premier League, but Spurs have the players to cope with any difficult challenge, and providing they perform to their full potential, I can't see the Evertonians getting the better of the Londoners this afternoon. I can't say for sure what the final score will be, but I see Spurs winning this one by a comfortable margin (3-1), with Soldado and Townsend amongst the goals.'
