Alex Iwobi left Red-faced, but Cenk Tosun delivers for Everton in Clash vs Tottenham


Cenk Tosun saved the blushes of Alex Iwobi, whose blunder saw Everton go behind against Tottenham in a keenly contested Premier league game at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Iwobi’s misplaced pass was latched on by Heung-min Son, who set up Dele Alli for the game’s first goal (63′).


However, Spurs were reduced to 10-men after Son clashed with Everton Midfielder André Gomes and the latter came out worse off with a broken ankle.



As a result, Match Referee Martin Atkinson awarded the teams 12 minutes additional time for stoppages.


That incident overshadowed the Nigerian’s howler, but didn’t change the scoreline until substitute Tosun headed home in additional time (90+7′) to beat Spurs goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, who had been excellent all night.


The draw leaves Everton still hovering just above the drop zone and Marco Silva’s job hanging in the balance.
