Harry Kane spurned a golden opportunity to hand Tottenham all three points against Everton at White Hart Lane Getty

A third consecutive draw for Tottenham to start the season, although they certainly had the chances to win that match comfortably. As if it was not obvious already, Pochettino is seriously lacking the necessary competition for Harry Kane. They rise to 15th in the table and travel to Sunderland next following the international break.

As for Everton, their record against the better teams is improving and five points from their opening four games represents a respectable return. Martinez's men host an out-of-sorts Chelsea at Goodison Park on 12 September.

That is all from us for today, but check in with IBTimes UK again tomorrow as we bring you live coverage of Manchester United's trip to Swansea.

Until then, goodnight.


Tottenham 0-0 Everton

A late free-kick is whipped into the Tottenham area by Deulofeu but Mirallas' tame header is easily held by Lloris.

Pritchard is penalised for barging into Mirallas from behind and Chadli is booked for bouncing the ball high in protest.

Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.

Bar a late piece of magic, this match looks to be labouring towards a goalless draw.

Tottenham's turn to make a change now as Mason is withdrawn in favour of 22-year-old former Brentford loanee Alex Pritchard.

A third and final change for Everton as Kone is replaced by Gerard Deulofeu. Seven minutes plus added time left for one of these sides to find a late winner.

Dier, already on a yellow card, is very unhappy indeed at being penalised for a trip on Barkley. Mirallas steps over the free-kick and bends it just over.

Barkley is crowded out by Vertonghen as he looks to bear down on goal and Rose lashes a shot hopelessly high. Is this heading for a goalless draw?

Another brief penalty appeal is given short shrift as Naismith's arm is pulled down by Walker.

At the other end, Kane finishes with aplomb at last but the offside flag was already raised.

Everton have been on the backfoot throughout tonight, but they come within a whisker of taking the lead as Kone gets up ahead of Vertonghen and glances Oviedo's dangerous cross inches wide.

More trickery from Chadli on the edge of the Everton penalty area leads to Dier blazing over with an ambitious effort.

Still the hosts pour forward unchecked as Jan Vertonghen gets the better of Barry before firing over. Surely just a matter of time now before Pochettino's side grab that elusive opener.

Muted appeals for a penalty from Tottenham as Alli tumbles under a risky sliding challenge from Stones. Nothing given.

Martinez sends on Steven Naismith to replace Lukaku.

Two more opportunities for Tottenham go begging as Kane shoots at Jagielka following great work from Chadli down the left flank.

The Belgian then has an effort of his own but he cannot stop it from sailing high and wide.

Sensing an opportunity, Kane finds space and lets fly from 25 yards but James McCarthy registers the block.

Two yellow cards in quick succession for Tottenham as Bentaleb's name is taken for a pull on Arouna Kone and Dier is deservedly booked for an ill-timed lunge on Barkley.

Martinez sought immediate clarification from Mike Jones over something there - did he think that Dier had already been cautioned?

Relief for Everton as a relatively harmless cross deflects off Barry and falls into the path of Alli in a dangerous area, but an excited swing of his left boot is not enough to test Howard.

Dier and Romelu Lukaku are being spoken to by the referee following a shoving match at a free-kick.

Another great save from Howard as he gets down low to his right to deny Mason the opening goal.

Alli's first involvement in the match is a yellow card received for a petulant block that prevented Barry from taking a quick free-kick.

The stretcher is produced for a second time this evening as Dembele does not respond to treatment on what seems to be a badly twisted ankle.

Dele Alli comes on in his place. The former MK Dons starlet notched his first goal for Tottenham at Leicester last week.

Tottenham have begun the second half on the offensive but Kane is ruled to have strayed offside and Stones hacks clear.

Dembele is down at the edge of the pitch after appearing to strain his ankle while taking on Barry and crossing from near the left byline.

Speaking of Cleverley, further replays show that Dier did indeed win the ball with that heavy tackle but seemed to accidentally trap his opponent's leg with a potentially painful scissor motion.

Hopefully that blow is not too serious.

The second half is now underway. No changes from Pochettino or Martinez, with Mirallas having replaced the injured Cleverley just before half-time.

The half-time whistle sounds with the deadlock yet to be broken by either side.

Kane has had by far the best chance of the evening so far, but some uncharacteristic hesitation at the final moment proved decisive.

Tottenham have certainly been the better team over that opening 45 and looked the more likely to score.

There will be concern for Cleverley after he needed extensive treatment from the medical staff and was taken off on a stretcher following a challenge from Dier.


Tottenham 0-0 Everton

Cleverley is in serious pain here and will require a stretcher to take him off the pitch. It was a fair challenge from Dier, but it's clearly hurt the 26-year-old quite badly.

Kevin Mirallas introduced for Everton and the fourth official signals four minutes of added time to compensate for that extended break.

An effort from distance courtesy of Barkley fails to cause much trouble for Lloris.

Cleverley appears to be in some discomfort and requires treatment following a heavy challenge from Eric Dier.

Eight minutes of the first-half remaining and we have our first yellow card of the evening as Gareth Barry is cautioned for holding back Kane.

Kane attempting to atone for his earlier miss as he bamboozles Jagielka before being forced wide by Oviedo.

From the resulting corner, Howard is called into action once more as he tips over a bullet header from Toby Alderweireld.

Tottenham looking somewhat effective now as Chadli feeds Mason but his shot is pushed wide by Howard.

The visiting goalkeeper is also called upon to deny Bentableb after Stones loses out in a tussle with Kane.

That really was a golden opportunity for Kane and it is one that you would likely have backed him to score during his fantastic run of form last season. Indicative of a slight loss of confidence, perhaps?

There are no strikers on the bench for Tottenham again today, with new signing Clinton Njie not deemed ready for the bench and the club still labouring in their protracted pursuit of West Brom's Saido Berahino.

Heung-Min Son, who officially joined from Bayer Leverkusen on Friday, is capable of playing across the frontline, but he does not feature in the matchday squad after being unveiled to supporters before kick-off.

Kane botches the chance to net his first goal of the 2015/16 season after rushing onto a long pass from Mason.

He timed his run beautifully to split Stones and Phil Jagielka, but hesitated and lost composure whilst running clear on goal and Howard gets down to make the stop.

At the other end, Mason breaks into the box and connects with Rose's cross but Stones is there to block for Everton. A timely intervention.

An extremely nervy moment for Kyle Walker as he moves to intercept a diagonal ball but takes a poor touch and gifts possession to Tom Cleverley in a dangerous area.

The former Manchester United midfielder's powerful effort is tipped over the crossbar by Hugo Lloris.

The best chance of the opening 15 minutes falls to Tottenham after Nacer Chadli cuts inside and lays the ball off to Bentaleb, but his left-footed shot from the edge of the penalty area is wide.

A first shot in anger from Harry Kane is dragged well wide of Tim Howard's right-hand post.

That came just moments after Mousa Dembele broke for Tottenham but Ryan Mason failed to find Rose with a poor cross.

No chances created during the opening exchanges at White Hart Lane but it has been a confident start from Everton, who have enjoyed a lot of possession.

We are underway in north London. All eyes will likely be fixed on John Stones this evening after his transfer request was rejected last week amid sustained interest from Chelsea and a disappointing performance at former club Barnsley.

Everton have made one switch of their own following a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City and an eventful Capital One Cup second round victory at Barnsley, with Bryan Oviedo replacing the injured Brendan Galloway. Just under 10 minutes until kick-off.

Two changes made by Mauricio Pochettino from the side who drew 1-1 at Leicester last weekend, with Nabil Bentaleb replacing Erik Lamela and Danny Rose in for Ben Davies.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Oviedo, Barry, Cleverley, McCarthy, Barkley, Kone, Lukaku

Subs: Robles, Mirallas, Naismith, Besic, Deulofeu, Pennington, Browning

Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Bentaleb, Dier, Chadli, Mason, Dembele, Kane

Subs: Vorm, Davies, Trippier, Alli, Carroll, Lamela, Pritchard
