Everton and Tottenham played out a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park that was billed as a knockout match for the right to finish in the top four.

In the end, neither side was able to get the win, with Harry Kane’s double sandwiching a brace from Gylfi Sigurdsson.

It was a result, therefore, that did neither side any good and leaves both unlikely to reach the Champions League next term.

But who were the stars of the four-goal thriller?

Everton 2-2 Tottenham: Player Ratings, Match Statistics

Sergio Reguilon: 4.9

Former Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon had a shocker and was hooked off by Jose Mourinho midway through the second half as a consequence. Indeed, the manager had a stern talk with him as he marched off the pitch at the break but things got no better in the second half.

A clumsy tackle on James Rodriguez allowed Everton back into the game when Tottenham were in the ascendancy. This was simply the low point of a wretched display.

✔️ Harry Kane: 8.3

Where would Tottenham be without Harry Kane? The England striker once again had an excellent game against Everton. Indeed, he became the first Premier League player to score two or more goals away to the same opponent in the history of the league with his double.

He was at his predatory best in this game, pouncing on weak defending to emphatically finish on two occasions. Another brilliant display of striking that only served to underline his worth to his side.

Taken off late on injured... it promises to be a nervy wait for Spurs and England fans to find out the extent of the problem.

Gylfi Sigurdsson: 8.7

Gylfi Sigurdsson was a Tottenham player for a couple of years between 2012 and 2014, and he came back to haunt his former side in this game with a vital double. Showed a cool head to convert from the penalty spot to get his side back on terms, while he was on hand to sweep home a cross from Seamus Coleman to square the game.
