Tottenham drew Everton 1-1 in the last game of EPL GW 29 yesterday, after both teams failed to get one up on the other. The game was the last game of an eventful EPL GW 29 and comes just a week or so after Spurs sacked manager Antonio Conte. Harry Kane opened scoring in the 68th minute, with Everton's Michael Keane making his reply in the 90th minute.
Spurs in a Flail
Tottenham have for the past few games been flailing. The team seemed very destabilized in yesterday's game against Everton, in a way that was indicative of the gap that Antonio Conte has left at the club. Conte left Tottenham last week on mutual agreement, after a rant on how the team was disunited, the players selfish, and not playing from their hearts. Read about Conte's departure below.
1-All for an Everton that's Really Trying
Everton have been having a terrible season so far, spending most of their time escaping the bottom three of the EPL Table. The 1-1 draw with Tottenham was a really good trial from them, even considering that Tottenham are far from their best currently.
Game of the Red Cards: 10-Man Spurs vs 10-Man Everton
Both teams showed weakness, however, as players from both teams got carded and sent off the pitch. For Spurs it was Lucas Moura who sent off in the 88th minute and for Everton it was Abdoulaye Doucoure who was shown a red card and sent off in the 58th minute. The red cards are indicative of the frustrations that both teams felt, especially knowing they really needed the three points.
