Cenk Tosun's stoppage-time header earned Everton a 1-1 home draw against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday in a match overshadowed by a dreadful injury to Everton midfielder Andre Gomes.

Dele Alli's goal just past the hour mark appeared to have ended Tottenham's long wait for a Premier League away win.


Spurs were reduced to 10 men in the 79th minute when Son Heung-min's tackle on Gomes resulted in the Portuguese midfielder suffering what looked to be a serious leg injury.

South Korean forward Son was distraught as he realised the extent of the damage to Gomes who was carried off on a stretcher after a lengthy delay.

Alli fired low past home keeper Jordan Pickford in the 63rd minute of a drab game after former Arsenal player Alex Iwobi's misplaced pass had gifted possession to Son.

Everton were denied a penalty when the ball appeared to inadvertently brush against Alli's hand as he challenged for an aerial ball but after a three-minute delay for a VAR check referee Martin Atkinson did not award the hosts a spot kick.

Substitute Tosun denied Tottenham victory when he headed home deep into the time added on for the Gomes injury.

Tottenham, still without an away league win since January, moved into 11th spot in the standings with Everton in 17th.

Troy Parrott was on the Spurs bench but did not feature.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 attacker was last week named in Mick McCarthy's extended senior panel for the upcoming games against New Zealand and Denmark, with the manager hinting the 17-year-old could get a run in the friendly with the All Whites.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer of the Belvedere Boys graduate. He included him in the club's Champions League squad and gave him a taste of life with the first team on what ultimately proved to another frustrating day at the office.
