TOTTENHAM v EVERTON RECAP: Spurs dominate but Toffees hold on in London

Tottenham and Everton played out a 0-0 draw at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Spurs dominated large portions of the clash but were unable to get past Tim Howard who came up with a number of key saves for the visitors.

Harry Kane had a great chance to win to for the home side but was denied by USA international Howard who helped Roberto Martinez's Toffees grab their fifth point of the season which has them occupying ninth position on the Premier League table.

Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs again lacked a cutting edge in the final third and remain in the bottom part of the standings with just three points from four matches.
