Spurs 1 Everton 3

Spurs suffered a second defeat in three days on Tuesday night as Everton continued their impressive start to the campaign.

Martin Jol came into this campaign having spent big money on the likes of Darren Bent and Gareth Bale. However while Bale continues his rehabilitation from injury, Darren Bent got his first chance to shine at White Hart Lane on Tuesday. Although the England forward did manage to hit the back of the net, his effort was ruled out for offside.

Mikel Arteta, star of the 2-1 win over Wigan on Saturday, continued his impressive start to the season, swinging in a free-kick for Lescott to head home after just three minutes.

While Spurs defence looked vulnerable, with Gardner guilty of sloppy marking in particular, they were level midway through the first half when the Spurs defender rose to meet Jermaine Jenas’ corner to make amends for his poor defending earlier.

However Leon Osman’s second goal in two games, and a long range free-kick from Alan Stubbs which took a deflection off Didier Zakora, meant Everton eventually cruised to victory.

Although Berbatov hit a post for Spurs, Everton remained dangerous when Spurs lost the ball and with Johnson prowling for every loose ball, Spurs were always struggling in defence and Martin Jol will know he has his work cut out for him, turning around Spurs poor start to the season.

    I love seeing Everton on top of the table. I don’t think they will win the PL, but maybe a spot in Europe for next season?!

    Absolutely Walt, can’t see them breaking into the top four but a UEFA Cup spot is on the cards, plus they are long overdue a good run in one of the cup competitions??

    Joe thanks for the comments, they have to be approved by myself or Peter before they’re published so there’s a wait of a couple of hours normally.
