Richarlison won a penalty which was overturned by VAR


Richarlison – 6

Richarlison hardly had any clear cut chances in the first half but his industrious nature meant that he contributed in one way or another. The Brazilian won a penalty which was overturned after a VAR intervention.

Richarlison looked more involved in the second half and was booked in the second half after a tussle with Christian Romero, a battle that boiled throughout the game. The former Watford attacker didn’t create the opening that would’ve sealed the three points for Everton.

Anthony Gordon – 6.5

Anthony Gordon was preferred over Alex Iwobi, adding enthusiasm and energy. His efforts didn’t go unnoticed as the academy product showed verve and passion on the right flank. He didn’t create any decisive opportunities in the first half but did enough to make his presence felt. Was silent in the second half in terms of producing chances but still ran and covered the ground well.

Demarai Gray – 7

Demarai Gray was lively throughout the first half, making Emerson toil hard on the left flank. The former Leicester City man showed off his nimble feet, dancing around the Spurs box before going down and screaming for a penalty. Gray was a constant threat but navigating through the compact Spurs side proved to be an arduous task.


Tom Davies – 6

Tom Davies came on for Fabian Delph on the 60th-minute mark as the midfielder replaced arguably the best Everton player of the game. Davies did win a corner late in the stoppage time by showing a lovely change of pace.

Mason Holgate – 4

Came on in the 82nd minute for Allan, providing energy and fresh legs in the middle. Holgate was robbed off the ball by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg which eventually almost resulted in a goal for Spurs as Lo Celso hit the post. Was sent off for a serious foul in the stoppage time.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin – 6

Jean-Philippe Gbamin came on for Demarai Gray after Holgate’s red card, making Rafa Benitez‘s intention clear of holding out a draw, bringing on a defensive minded player for an attacking player.
