Everton stuns Tottenham 2-1 in Premier League

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Everton scored twice in stoppage time to beat Tottenham 2-1 at Goodison Park on Sunday and move into fourth place in the Premier League table.

Tottenham took the lead when forward Clint Dempsey opened the scoring in the 76th minute from long range after taking a pass from Tom Huddlestone and turning neatly into space. Dempsey's strike took a slight deflection before looping over goalkeeper Tim Howard.

But the home side came to life in stoppage time with Steven Pienaar scoring against his former club with a header from Seamus Coleman's cross before Nikica Jelavic secured the win with a close-range finish from Apostolos Vellios' cross.

The victory extends Everton's league unbeaten run at home to 12 games and moves the Toffees above their north London opponents in the standings on goal difference. Tottenham drops to fifth place with 27 points.
