Minute Commentary
90' ADEBAYOR IS THE HERO ONCE MORE
This game took a little while to come to life, but Spurs won't mind about that - they have the three points which they were so desperate for. Everton were the better side for long periods, although they didn't really have many chances other than an early effort from Leon Osman. Spurs tried hard in the first period but couldn't produce much either. The second period started as the first ended but came to life when Emmanuel Adebayor buried the ball after Kyle Walker's free kick. Everton tried hard to get back into it and pressed hard in the dying stages, but couldn't find a way through. Final score Spurs 1 - 0 Everton.
90' FULL TIME
That's that! Spurs have another vital three points in the race for fourth place, whilst Everton will feel hard done by. Spurs 1 - 0 Everton.
90' GOOD STOP
Jermain Defoe breaks down the right and fires in a low shot, which forces a good save from Tim Howard.
90' ADDED TIME
Three minutes are added on.
87' BOOKING
Moussa Dembele is booked for raking down the back of Gareth Barry's legs.
86' FINAL SPURS CHANGE
Jermain Defoe joins the play to thunderous applause, with Aaron Lennon leaving the field.
85' RUNNING OUT OF TIME
Everton have only got a few minutes now to try and find a goal, but I don't think they'll get one. The lack of a traditional forward on the pitch seems to have hindered them.
82' OUCH
Hugo Lloris goes up to collect a deflected cross from Aiden McGeady, but bangs into the post as he propels backwards. Looks painful, but the Frenchman is back on his feet.
80' CLOSE!
Leighton Baines whips the free kick in, Gareth Barry heads it back across goal, and Moussa Dembele clears up.
79' FOUL
Danny Rose is penalised for shoving Gerard Deulofeu to the ground. This could be a good chance for Everton.
76' KEEPING THE BALL
Everton are doing a good job of holding the ball, but cannot find a way past the Spurs defence. Still plenty of time, although they will want to get a goal soon.
73' EVERTON CHANGES
Gerard Deulofeu replaces Steven Naismith, whilst Aiden McGeady comes on for Leon Osman.
71' FRUSTRATED
The Everton players are very frustrated all of a sudden. They have been the better side on balance for much of this game, but find themselves behind.
68' SPURS CHANGE
Etienne Capoue replaces Paulinho.
65' LOVELY CENTRE FORWARD PLAY
Emmanuel Adebayor has been something of a revelation since Tim Sherwood took over as Spurs manager, and he has done it again here. Kyle Walker flicked a free kick into the path of the big striker, who held off Sylvain Distin, controlled the ball, and rifled a low shot past Tim Howard. Spurs 1 - 0 Everton.
65' GOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLLL
SPURS ARE IN THE LEAD!
65' GOOD GOALKEEPING
Hugo Lloris comes rushing out of his box to clear a long ball, controlling it with his chest before punting it upfield.
63' EVERTON CHANGE
Steven Pienaar leaves the field, with Ross Barkley replacing him. Both sides have brought on an exciting young English talent - can either of them make an impact?
59' SPURS CHANGE
Andros Townsend replaces Christian Eriksen for the hosts.
57' ROLLERCOASTER
The game has a moment of excitement, Everton breaking foreward and Spurs clearing nearly off the line, before Spurs hit back immediately.
55' FRUSTARTING
Both sides are guilty of the same mistake - their final ball seems to be wrong every time. Whether it is passing or shooting, each choice seems to be the incorrect one.
52' AMBITIOUS
Kevin Mirallas tries to curl the ball into the top corner after cutting in from the left, but it flies over the top. Not the best chance he's ever had.
50' FREE SCORING
Tottenham have averaged two goals a game since Tim Sherwood took over as manager - but they'll have to do something drastic to match that today. Everton seem to be missing the presence of Romelu Lukaku up front.
47' MUCH THE SAME
The second half has started as the first ended - with the ball being knocked around in midfield without much penetration. Come on lads, mix it up.
46' KICK OFF
Everton get the second period underway, kicking from right to left.
45' BATTLE
This has been a semi-entertaining half of football, with both sides threatening but not really going close. Leon Osman had the best chance of the game for the visitors with a low drive, whilst Christian Eriksen curled a free kick over the bar for Spurs. Let's hope that the second half sees a goal.
45' HALF TIME
The referee ends the half, with the scores level. Spurs 0 - 0 Everton.
45' ADDED TIME
One minute is added on.
42' NOISY
The fans have finally come to life and are singing some songs. Hopefully that will inspire the home side to press forward once more.
39' GOOD BATTLE
After an Everton-dominated start, Spurs managed to get back into this game. However, as the first half winds down, it seems that the Toffees are back in control.
35' GOOD MOVEMENT
Steven Pienaar and Steven Naismith exchange passes on the edge of the box, and only a late intervention from Michael Dawson means the latter cannot get a shot away.
34' NICE TRY
Leighton Baines whips in a free kick from the left and Phil Jagielka tries to keep it in play, but manages to win his side a corner. It comes to nothing.
31' WIDE PLAY
The full backs for both teams are having a good game, and could prove pivotal at the end of the 90 minutes. The battle between Danny Rose and Seamus Coleman is something to behold.
27' SO CLOSE
Danny Rose whips in a superb low cross from the left, and Emmanuel Adebayor is a stud's length away from tapping it into the net. So close.
25' END TO END
The match is finely balanced at the moment, but you get the impression that mistakes or the poor state of the pitch could play a part.
22' PLAY UP
The England boss is in the house, and the likes of Kyle Walker and Gareth Barry will be hoping to impress.
19' PINBALL
A comedy of errors in the Spurs defence nearly allows Naismith through on goal, but Hugo Lloris comes out smartly to save. Dangerous from the home side there.
17' DOING WELL
Steven Naismith, not a natural centre forward, is doing a good job so far of holding up the ball and bringing others into play. However, he is penalised for barging into Jan Vertonghen a little too roughly.
15' UNHAPPY
The Spurs fans are unusually quiet - they aren't liking seeing their team being bossed around quite like this.
13' JUST OVER!
Paulinho is fouled around 30 yards from goal, and Christian Eriksen curls his free kick dangerously over the bar. The best move that Spurs have had so far.
11' MILESTONE ACHIEVED
Well done to Kyle Walker, who is celebrating his 100th Premier League game for Tottenham today. His side have clearly been on the back foot so far.
9' EVERTON TEAM NEWS
Seamus Coleman comes back into the side with John Stones dropping out, whilst Steven Pienaar and Steven Naismith replace Aiden McGeady and Ross Barkley.
7' SUPER SAVE
Steven Naismith lays the ball off to Leon Osman on the edge of the box, and his powerful shot is well saved by Hugo Lloris. Cracking effort from Osman there.
6' BRIGHT START
The visitors are the ones with all of the ball in the early going, and Leon Osman in particular looks bright.
3' BREAKING SPURS TEAM NES
Roberto Soldado drops out of the side, with Moussa Dembele taking his place.
1' KICK OFF
We are underway here at White Hart Lane.
0' FACTS AND STATS
Spurs may be having a topsy-turvy season, but they are currently two points better off than at the same stage last season when they broke the points record for the team finishing in fifth. However, their home form has not been great recently - having taken 11 points from their last 10 home games. Everton have more points at this stage than in any other season since 1986/87, but have only kept one clean sheet in 10 games. Leighton Baines, well known for his attacking prowess, has not registered an assist this season, one less than Tim Howard.
0' FORM GUIDE
Tottenham head into this match in mixed form, having won three of their last six games, drawing one and losing two. However, they have only won one of their last three, having drawn with Hull last weekend and receiving a beating at the hands of Manchester City in the match before. Everton, on the other hand, have won four of their last six, drawing one and losing one. Their win over Aston Villa was a good remedy to the thumping they received in the Merseyside derby.
0' MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Mark Clattenburg takes charge of this tie. This will be the County Durham official's 25th game of the season, and in the previous 24 he has shown 82 yellow cards and one red. This will be his fifth game in charge of Spurs this season, and he has shown them four yellow cards so far. He has only officiated one Everton match so faar this season, showing two Blues players the yellow card.
0' EVERTON TEAM NEWS
Roberto Martinez has a couple of big players of his own back in contention for this match. Gerard Deulofeu and Lacina Traore have both overcome hamstring problems and could play a part, with the latter making his debut. Seamus Coleman was an unused substitute in their last game and looks set to return to the starting line-up, but Antolin Alcaraz is still missing with muscle fatigue.
0' SPURS TEAM NEWS
Spurs could be handed a major boost with the return of Andros Townsend after eight weeks out with a hamstring problem. Mousa Dembele should shake off an ankle problem which kept him out of the match with Hull, whilst Younes Kaboul and Jan Vertonghen both returned to the squad last weekend and have no ill-effects following their own injury problems. Erik Lamela is still not quite at full fitness after his own thigh problem.
0' PREVIEW
One major broadcaster uses the name 'Super' to describe Sunday football fixtures. More often than not the games fail to live up to their billing, but this game could prove to be a corker. Two sides fighting tooth and nail for a place at European football's top table? Lovely. So get your roast eaten early, settle down with a beverage of choice and let me guide you through this one.
