Tottenham and Everton share points in tensed match

Premier League

In a game that saw both teams finish with 10 men, Michael Keane scored a remarkable long-range goal in the 90th minute to rescue a Premier League draw for Everton against Tottenham.

In order to lift Sean Dyche’s team out of the relegation zone, defender Keane stepped up from the back and arrowed a 25-yard drive into the top corner.

After Keane himself had fouled Cristian Romero in the area, Harry Kane gave Spurs the lead from the penalty spot in the second half.

Up until the moment in minute 57, when Toffees midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure was given a deserving straight red card for elbowing Kane off the ball, the game had been a dull affair.

The England captain’s goal appeared to give interim manager Cristian Stellini a victory in Tottenham’s first match following Antonio Conte‘s amicable departure.

But, Keane, a former Burnley player, recovered from the blow to score the equalizer and cause chaos at Goodison Park as substitute Lucas Moura was also dismissed for a brutal challenge on him.

Everton moves up three spots to 15th with the point, while Tottenham moves up to fourth on goal differential despite having played two more games than fifth-place Manchester United.
