Cenk Tosun rescues Everton in a match spoiled by Andre Gomes' injury

LIVERPOOL: Cenk Tosun The header of the detention time earned Everton a 1-1 draw at home against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier league Sunday in a game eclipsed by a bad-looking injury to Everton midfielder Andre Gomes.

Dele Alli's goal just past the hour mark appeared to have ended Tottenham's long wait for a Premier league away win.

The Spurs were reduced to 10 men in the 79th minute when Son Heung-min's entry into Gomes resulted in the Portuguese midfielder suffering what appeared to be a leg injury.

South Korean forward Son seemed distraught to realize the extent of the injury to Gomes, who was taken on a stretcher after a long delay.

Alli shot under local goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 63rd minute of a monotonous game after the misplaced pass by former Arsenal player Alex Iwobi had given Son possession.

Everton was denied a penalty when the ball seemed to inadvertently brush Alli's hand while challenging for an aerial ball, but after a three-minute delay for a VAR control, referee Martin Atkinson did not give the hosts a kick.

The replacement Tosun denied Tottenham's victory when he headed home in additional time for Gomes' injury.

Tottenham, still without a victory in the league since January, was ranked 11th in the standings with Everton in 17th place.
