Everton were punished with their second successive defeat on Saturday (15 October) as Tottenham Hotspur eased to a 2-0 win, writes the Goodison News.
A tight first half saw the Toffees have arguably the better chances to take the lead but Antonio Conte’s side turned the screw in the second half with Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scoring the goals.
Everton were left to chase the game after goalkeeper Jordan Pickford spilt what should have been an easy save and Kane nipped in to snatch the ball away and the England number one had to foul his Three Lions teammate.
Spurs’ top scorer duly smashed the ball home and Jamie Redknapp was not in any mood to sympathise with Pickford on the Sky Sports Football podcast after the game.
“That’s a back pass, he’s got to save that,” Redknapp said. “I don’t care what you say, that is a really bad piece of goalkeeping. It’s definitely a penalty.”
