  • What drama! Thanks for all your comments today folks. Don't forget, you can always follow me on Twitter: @RazMirza to send me your views so speak to you all soon!

  • FULL-TIME: Tottenham went ahead after 76 minutes through Clint Dempsey's deflected strike, but Everton won the game with a quick-fire double late in the game from Steven Pienaar's long-range header before a dramatic winner 88 seconds later from Nikica Jelavic.

  • YELLOW CARD: Dempsey is almost in and there was a yellow card for Jelavic as he celebrated his goal.

  • SUBSTITUTION: John Heitinga replaces the winning goalscorer surely in Jelavic and the Croatian gets a big hug from David Moyes.

  • What an amazing turnaround at Goodison Park as Apostolos Vellios' attempted overhead kick falls into the path of Jelavic and he finishes calmly from close-range. Two goals in 88 seconds!


  • Wonderful equalising goal for Everton as Steven Naismith finds Seamus Coleman and his ball in to the box is headed home superbly by the South African from just inside the area.


  • Everton had only won two of their first 18 Premier League meetings with Tottenham at Goodison Park (W2 D9 L7) before winning in each of the last two seasons. Desperate measures from the hosts now as they pump the ball up to Marouane Fellaini.

  • We have three minutes remaining at Goodison Park as Jan Vertonghen wins his side a throw.

  • SUBSTITUTION: Spanish Under 21 star Falque replaces Jermain Defoe, who has failed to hit the abck of the onion bag this afternoon.

  • OFF THE CROSSBAR: Gylfi Sigurdsson clips the woodwork after a wonderful curler from 25 yards.

  • Andre Villas-Boas prepares to make his final change as he gives Falque some instructions.

  • SUBSTITUTION: Apostolos Vellios is sent on the field for Leon Osman. Marouane Fellaini will automatically drop into midfield now.

  • David Moyes must be fuming inside, because his side have dominated for long periods, but that speculative effort from Dempsey could prove to be the difference this afternoon.

  • Tottenham have failed to win in their last five visits to Goodison Park, but they're on course today. If Premier League games had ended at 80 minutes this season, Spurs would be top. We are into the final ten minutes now!

  • SUBSTITUTION: Gylfi Sigurdsson immediately comes on for Moussa Dembele.

  • Breakthrough for the visitors and it's the American with his third goal for Spurs. His right-foot shot is deflected over Tim Howard by Sylvain Distin. Is this a smash and grab raid by the north Londoners on Merseyside!?
