Everton, who hosted Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur during Sunday’s early Premier League kick-off, have been lucky to come away from Goodison Park with a point after defender Mason Holgate was shown a straight red.

The Toffees, who have been forced to navigate the opening stages of the 2021-22 season without star man Dominick Calvert-Lewin, have done well to hold Conte’s Spurs to a 0-0 draw on Sunday.
