Harry Kane scored twice to cancel out Gylfi Sigurdsson’s two goals and earn a point for Tottenham against fellow top-four chasers Everton at Goodison Park.

England striker Kane was 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, Sigurdsson levelled from the penalty spot and gave Everton the lead by finishing off a fine team goal.

He expertly guided in a left-footed strike from Seamus Coleman’s cross but that only kicked Spurs into life and Kane equalised six minutes later.

There were concerning moments in stoppage time, however, with Kane walking away gingerly from an awkward landing and having to be substituted.

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.
