Everton 2 – 2 Tottenham

Must read

Harry Kane suffered a late injury after scoring twice to rescue a point for Tottenham against Everton at Goodison Park.

Nine days before the Carabao Cup final and 58 days before England’s European Championships opener, Kane limped off in stoppage time with an apparent ankle injury.

The striker seemed to land awkwardly after jumping for a header when defending a corner late on.

He had earlier been at his clinical best, capitalising on two mistakes in the Everton defence to put Spurs ahead in the first half and grab a second-half equaliser.

In between Kane’s strikes Gylfi Sigurdsson levelled from the penalty spot and gave Everton the lead by finishing off a fine team goal.

Everton pushed hardest for a winner and had the best chance to win it but Joshua King’s effort was saved by Hugo Lloris and Richarlison fired the rebound over from 12 yards.

Realistically, a draw suited neither side with Tottenham staying seventh, five points behind fourth-placed West Ham and Everton a point and a place worse off.

Kane walking gingerly before bending down and holding his right ankle will strike fear into every Tottenham and England fan.

He left the field of his own accord but did so immediately and shaking his head.

Kane has suffered a series of ankle injuries in the past which only adds to the concern.

He had earlier shown his massive importance to his team once more, slamming home two sharp finishes from his only opportunities in an otherwise underwhelming Spurs performance.

The goals were his 20th and 21st of this season, taking him two clear in the race for the golden boot. They also lifted him into seventh on the all-time Premier League scorers chart, clear of Robbie Fowler and Jermaine Defoe.
