    • 90' Jelavic cuts in from the right, but fires straight at Lloris.

    • 84' Dempsey is booked for diving over Baines's leg, as we approach the final five minutes.

    • 74' Huddlestone is coming on for Spurs.
    • 72' Tottenham sorely lacking width without Lennon or Bale. Everything going through the middle for them.
    • 71' Tottenham pushing forward, but the more they do, the bigger the gaps they leave at the back. Jelavic the latest player to almost get through the last line of Spurs defence.
    • 70' Anichebe cuts in from the left but his low shot goes straight into the side netting.
    • 68' Dempsey goes for goal from 20 yards, but his effort flashes just wide.

    • 49' Vertonghen brings down Coleman, but somehow gets away with it. Clear foul, just outside the Spurs box.

    • 47' Sigurdsson sends in two crosses from the left that are blocked. Spurs on the front foot immediately.
    • 46' Tottenham get us back underway at White Hart Lane. Which way will the second half go? Let me know on Twitter @mjdasilva.

    • 38' Holtby finds Sigurdsson, who cuts inside from the left - but his shot to the near post is gathered comfortably by Howard.
    • 37' Anichebe hobbles off, with Jelavic warming up. We are back underway.
    • 36' Anichebe has come off the worst after a tussle with Caulker, and now the striker is receiving treatment.
    • 35' Obstruction by Barkley results in a contested drop ball. Spurs win it and Sirgurdsson drives forward for Spurs, but a promising move eventually runs out of steam.
    • 33' Everton clear the corner, but Spurs maintain the pressure. Spurs claim a penalty as Dempsey's cross appears to brush the upper arm of Gibson. Would have been very harsh.

    • 20' Dembele over hits a pass Walker, who punches the ball in frustration.
    • 19' Adebayor stays down for a moment after stretching for a cross. But he's ok.
    • 18' This time Dempsey goes for goal from distance, but his compatriot Howard watches it go harmlessly wide. Everton will deal with those all day.
    • 17' Space opens up for Dembele 25 yards from goal, but the midfielder's effort slices off his left boot and flies high and wide.
    • 16' A very open game here at White Hart Lane, which has fallen quiet since that leveller.
    • 15' GOAL! Everton level through Jagielka! The defender climbs above Vertonghen to nod in at the far post. Suspect defending from Spurs, a priceless equaliser for Everton.

    • 2' GOAL! Adebayor scores after 32 seconds! Vertonghen swings in a cross from the left and Adebayor slides the ball in from close range! What a start for the Lillywhites!
    • 1' KICK OFF. We are underway at a sunny White Hart Lane.
    • 14.00 Will Spurs get the win they need? Or will they choke, as they seem to every Spring?
    • 13.55 Everton have won three successive league games for the first time since January 2010, but they are going to have to win at White Hart Lane to continue their push for Champions League qualification. Otherwise, it's the Europa League form them. the Toffees are two points clear of city rivals Liverpool, who have played two games more.
    • 13.50 Both sides harbour ambitions of Champions League football next season with Spurs in need of a win to maintain their cushion over fourth-placed Arsenal, who beat West Brom yesterday. Victory would ensure Everton keep the pressure on fifth-placed Chelsea.
    • 13:45 Killer stat from Opta: No player has created more goalscoring chances than Leighton Baines (96) across Europe’s top five leagues this season.
    • 13:40 David Moyes on John Heitinga: : “John is mentally very strong. He’s played in a World Cup final and against all the top players, so I think that single-mindedness brought him through. He had some real bad periods in the season. In a way, he had to prove himself again. If it was anyone else it would have broken them but John’s Dutch mentality got him through it.”
    • 13:35 Andre Villas-Boas: "We recognise the moment of form that the player (Gareth Bale) is in and it probably means that the squad will step up a level for his absence, but you know key players are always missed by any team, but we have done it in the past and there shouldn't be any reason for us not to continue to do it."
    • 13:30 Confirmation of what we already knew - no Gareth Bale or Jermain Defoe for Tottenham. They are both out injured. Everton are missing Marouane Fellaini and Steven Pienaar - both men serve the second part of their respective two-game bans today.
