    Quote Message: John Stones was an immense influence on what we did defensively.The reading of the game, he looks like a player who has grown in the last few weeks under the pressure and speculation. Every single Evertonian will show that respect to him for the way he has handled the situation. You can see the signs of a future England captain. As a football club we are very clear on our future and our vision, we are building a team and a project. We hope we can bring one more in. from Roberto Martinez Everton manager on Sky Sports

    "It was a pulsating match and once the Spurs players do return from the international break they can pick themselves up and go again in a difficult away encounter at Sunderland. 

    "Clinton Njie and Christian Eriksen will by that time be in competition for a place and we know that the transfer window is still open."

  32. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Harry Kane finally hammers the ball into the net but it is more out of frustration that conviction as the linesman's flag was raised for offside.

    Seconds earlier, Everton thought they should have had a penalty after Steven Naismith went down after being tugged by Kyle Walker. It would have been harsh.

  33. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Corner to Everton. Is this their moment? No.

  34. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Bradley Allen

    Tottenham academy coach on BBC London 94.9

    "I've just looked over at the Everton bench and my eyes focussed on one person - Duncan Ferguson. He's part of the coaching staff. I bet he'd been dreaming of a chance like that. In the end it just skimmed off the top of Arouna Kone's head.

    "The tempo's just slowed fraction and I'm not surprised. Over the last 15 minutes it's been played at some pace." 

  35. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    A rare Everton attack and that is so close. Bryan Oviedo whips in a delicious cross from the right, Arouna Kone meets the ball first, but his glanced header is inches wide of the far post.

    Beware Tottenham, Everton can still be a threat...

  36. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Romelu Lukaku does not look a happy man as he is replaced by Steven Naismith in attack.

    Tottenham immediately on the attack as central defender Jan Vertonghen beats three Everton defenders before having a wicked shot tipped over by Tim Howard.

    How long can Everton hang on?

  37. PENALTY APPEAL

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Everton are under the cosh. Dele Alli goes down in the penalty area  after another Tottenham attack but nothing doing.

    "How Tottenham are not in front is beyond me. Two chances in swift succession that Spurs fail to take because Harry Kane and Nacer Chadli both opted for placement.

    "Everton are hanging on at the moment."    

  39. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Still their shooting boots remain firmly off. Harry Kane has a shot blocked by Phil Jagielka, the rebound falls to Nacer Chadli who fires over with the goal at his mercy. Tottenham are being very wasteful.

  40. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Mauricio Pochettino is looking a worried man. His Spurs side are well on top but they need to be more clinical.

  43. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    This is getting very, very scrappy. Eric Dier is rightly booked for a late lunge on Ross Barkley.

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez looks as though he thinks Dier has been booked before... Referee Mike Jones runs over to the touchline to show him his note pad to prove he hasn't.

  44. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Nabil Bentaleb gives the ball away cheaply to Arouna Kone and he is cautioned for tugging him back.

    Before the free-kick can be taken Romelu Lukaku and Eric Dier have to be prised apart inside the penalty area. Handbags at 10 paces.

  45. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Dele Alli again. Now, he has a chance to fire the hosts ahead after another poor touch from Gareth Barry but he scuffs his shot horribly from close range.

  46. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Bradley Allen

    Tottenham academy coach on BBC London 94.9

    "That's a great chance. Dele Alli did brilliantly, Ryan Mason pushed forward but it was a weak finish in the end.

    "Mason keeps getting in those positions though. He looks like the most likely player to score here." 

  47. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    A busy start for Dele Alli, who was signed from MK Dons in January - but loaned back until the summer. Now he is booked for getting in the way of Gareth Barry's free-kick.

  48. GREAT SAVE!

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Dele Alli almost makes an instant impression. He latches onto a poor touch from Gareth Barry to prod Ryan Mason through on goal but, from close range, his low shot is kept out by Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard. Again. 

  49. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Bradley Allen

    Tottenham academy coach on BBC London 94.9

    "What a chance this is for Dele Alli. He's really impressed in pre-season and scored at Leicester last weekend. Can he come up with a similar contribution today? He's a rarity in modern football - a midfielder who gets into the box and scores, a Frank Lampard player."

  50. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Mousa Dembele can't continue after injuring his ankle. He is replaced in central midfield by Dele Alli.

    Mousa Dembele
  51. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    The hosts are now well on top. Mousa Dembele works his way to the bye-line on the left but his ball back into the penalty area just evades Harry Kane.

    As Dembele stays down in pain, clutching his ankle, the game goes on and Nacer Chadli scuffs a shot well wide. Looks ominous for Dembele - he has hardly moved.

  52. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    The word from the Everton dressing room, according to BBC Sport's Jonathan Pearce, is that Tom Cleverley's ankle injury is serious.

    Looks bad news for Everton and midfielder Tom Cleverley. He is down nursing his ankle after a challenge by Eric Dier and a stretcher is being called for. He isn't going to play any more part here.

  72. GREAT SAVE!

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Harry Kane..... He has to score.... no.

    The Tottenham striker has the freedom of  White Hart Lane as he races onto a slide-rule pass from Ryan Mason.

    He is through on goalkeeper Tim Howard, tries to give him the eyes, but the American isn't fooled and blocks his ultimately weak effort.

    Kane still yet to score this season.

    A huge sigh of relief from Tottenham's Kyle Walker. The defender treads on the ball, setting Tom Cleverley in on goal.He cuts inside and shoots powerfully from 20 yards but it is parried over. Awful from Walker.

  77. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Out of nothing, Tottenham almost take the lead. Nacer Chadli again does well down the left. He pulls back to Nabil Bentaleb, who drags a shot just wide. Spurs finding their feet.

    Bright start from Everton as Tom Cleverley and Romelu Lukaku link up inside Tottenham's penalty area but the latter is crowded out. 

  83. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Tottenham hope home advantage will prove key at White Hart Lane. It hasn't proved the case in the Premier League so far this campaign...

    Manchester City are the only home winners in the top flight so far today, while there have only been seven home wins out of 37 in the league this campaign.

    Incredible stuff.

  84. KICK-OFF

    Tottenham 0-0 Everton

    Chelsea's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace only raises the suspicions that the Blues might move again for John Stones before the close of the transfer window on Tuesday.

    Is the Everton man in the right frame of mind to play today, despite wanting to leave? We will find out.

    Game on.

  85. Post update

    Tottenham v Everton (17;30 BST)

    Here come the teams. 

    Everton have followed a run of eight defeats in nine league away games by losing just one of the last five.

    The Toffees would love to continue that run.

  86. Is Kane still able?

    Tottenham v Everton (17:30 BST)

    Harry Kane

    What is going on with Spurs striker Harry Kane?

    In the 11 appearances he made before his England debut he scored 14 goals. In the 11 appearances since, he has netted just twice and none yet this campaign.

    Will he break his drought today?

    Tottenham v Everton (17:30 BST)

    Tottenham

    Tottenham are winless so far in the league this season and the last time they failed to win any of their opening four league matches of the season was in 2008-09, which ultimately led to the sacking of manager Juande Ramos.

    Getting a bit nervy Mauricio Pochettino? 

  89. Post update

    Tottenham v Everton (17:30 BST)

    Jonathan Pearce

    BBC football commentator

    "Tottenham's early-season form has been blunted by too many transfer comings and goings.

    "Everton's start has been disrupted by the John Stones on-off Chelsea transfer saga. So far, both clubs look well short of a top-six challenge."

  90. Manager view

    Tottenham v Everton (17;30 BST)

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez on BT Sport on how he knows John Stones is in the right frame of mind to play:  When you watch him training, you know. Today is our second away game of the season and John was very much an important reason why we performed so well at Southampton. We want to replicate that."

  91. Team news

    Tottenham v Everton (17:30 BST)

    Everton have made just one change from the team which faced Manchester City in the last Premier League game, with John Stones starting as mentioned earlier.

    Brendan Galloway's injury-enforced absence means Bryan Oviedo is handed a first league start of the campaign at left-back.

    Everton XI: Howard; Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Oviedo; McCarthy, Barry; Koné, Barkley, Cleverley; Lukaku.
