Both goals in this game have been lovely.

Tottenham trailed Everton 1-0 heading into two minutes of added time in the first half on a blast from Aaron Lennon. Tottenham had the better half however, with two hard-luck opportunities from Harry Kane and Ben Davies turned away by the woodwork. Finally, one minute into stoppage time, they broke through.

Toby Alderweireld set up the score with a brilliant ball from behind midfield to Dele Alli in the middle of the box. Allie controlled the ball with his chest and then hit a scissoring volley past Tim Howard.

Everton's goal did not quite rise to the level of Alli's, but it was still very, very good. Tom Cleverley played a diagonal ball in to Romelu Lukaku and he deftly headed it back to Lennon, who also controlled the pass with his chest before hitting a rocket past the keeper.

The second half is just underway, tied at 1-1.
