  • Emmanuel Adebayor's fine finish was enough to separate two evenly-matched sides and boost Tottenham's bid for a top-four finish. Everton had dominated the first period and only a strong of fine saves from home keeper Hugo Lloris prevented them taking the lead. Spurs improved after the break and Adebayor's astute low finish enabled his side leapfrog Everton into fifth place, just three points behind Liverpool in fourth with a trip to Anfield still to come for Tim Sherwood's side.

  • Defoe breaks for the hosts but his angled drive is saved by the legs of Howard.

  • We will have a minimum of three minutes added time.

  • An anxious moment for Spurs as Coleman goes down in the box under the challenge of Capoue, but play is waved on.

  • Rose pplays the ball downfield and almost relases Defoe but Distin gets in ahead of the striker and clears.

  • McGeady pulls the ball back to the edge of the box but Spurs clear.

  • Bentaleb earns huge applause for using his strength to run the ball out for a goalkick under pressure from Barkley.

  • Everton are having plenty of possession but they are not creating the chances they were doing in the first half.

  • Dembele is the first booking of the game.

  • No signs of Spurs being content with their 1-0 lead as they throw on another striker.

  • Spurs make their final change with Defoe on for Lennon.

  • Spurs press but Dembele gives the ball away and Everton look to counter once again.

  • Everton have a corner despite claims the ball had gone out for a throw. Baines takes it but the danger is cleared.

  • Spaniard Deulofeu goes on a positive run before finding McGeady whose cross takes a deflection and Lloris awkwardly gathers it close to the post.

  • Spurs break and Dembele looks to release Adebayor, but Coleman shows his strength inside the box to hold him off and earn the free kick.

  • Deulofeu is blcoked by Rose and Everton have a free-kick in a dangerous area. Baines whips it in to the far post where Colleman heds it back in but Dawson gets it clear.

  • Howard stays calms as he controls a back pass from Jagielka and neatly sidesteps Adebayor before getting the ball downfield.

  • Dembele plays the ball into Adebayor who lets fly from 25 yards and the ball is just over.

  • Townsend cuts inside but his shot from the edge of the box is blocked by Jagielka.

  • Martinez has words with Mirallas by the dugout as he tries to come up with a way back into the game.
