Everton vs Tottenham final score: Toffees hold Conte’s Spurs amid VAR drama


Everton vs Tottenham was a bitter battle at Goodison Park as Antonio Conte had to settle for a draw in his first Premier League game in charge of Spurs.

Spurs were tough to break down and almost snatched victory late on as substitute Giovani Lo Celso hit the post.

However, Everton were denied a penalty kick after it was initially awarded for a foul on Richarlison but after VAR intervened and a pitch-side check took place, the spot kick was taken away.

The same situation played out late on as substitute Mason Holgate was given a red card, as Rafael Benitez’s side felt aggrieved but were happy enough with a point in a game they looked more likely to win.

With the draw Everton have 15 points, while Tottenham move on to 16 points.

Three things we learned from Everton vs Tottenham

1. Conte’s Spurs sluggish: The Italian coach only had one day to prepare his new Spurs side for this game, but this looked like an Antonio Conte team. At least defensively. They were solid enough and the wing backs and three center backs were heavily involved. Conte won’t be happy with the way Spurs failed to keep the ball but he will be happier with this defensive display compared to the wacky 3-2 win against Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League in midweek. Spurs were sluggish, which suggests their players are still getting over an emotionally draining time with Nuno out, Conte in and lots of new ideas being thrown around. After the international break Conte will need his new-look Spurs to understand his attacking ideas better, as they have now gone two-straight PL games without having a shot on target.

2. Unlucky Everton as VAR dominates: This was a very solid display from Everton and if either team deserved to edge this, it was them. Rafael Benitez’s side were aggressive, rattled into challenges and took the game to Spurs in the second half. They lacked a little creativity in the final third but they just couldn’t finish chances and the ball didn’t drop to the right man in the box. Given the VAR decisions going against them (even though both were correct) Everton will be cursing their luck.

3. Two teams struggling for confidence: There was very little between these two teams but in the key moments you could see they were both struggling for confidence. From Harry Kane and Heung-min Son barely having a kick to Richarlison working hard but not really having a partner to work off, there was a lack of belief in both teams. That should come back but right now Benitez and Conte have to restore confidence. They have quality players. Those players just have to believe it.

Man of the Match: Allan – Subbed off late on because he ran himself into the ground. Was absolutely everywhere and controlled the tempo of the game.

An intense start to the game saw Everton press Tottenham in midfield and the visitors struggled to get going.

Ben Godfrey won the ball back high up the pitch but his shot was straight at Hugo Lloris, while at the other end Lucas Moura’s surging run was snuffed out as Michael Keane and Everton’s defense stood tall.

After a header from Emerson Royal was blocked, Spurs blocked a shot from Demarai Gray as Everton looked the more likely to take the lead. But just before the break Spurs should have taken the lead.

Harry Kane crossed for Sergio Reguilon but the Spanish defender couldn’t put his finish on target at the back post as a big chance came and went.

Everton continued to look more dangerous as Anthony Gordon fired a volley over, while at the other end Ben Davies smashed a shot just wide as chances were few and far between.

A penalty was then awarded as Hugo Lloris caught Richarlison as he rushed off his line, but after the VAR official Jon Moss told Chris Kavanagh to check the pitch-side monitor, the decision was overturned and no penalty was given.

Lloris got a slight touch on the ball just before he collided with Richarlison, but Everton’s players and fans were irate. Demarai Gray then side-footed wide after a good move started by Lucas Digne.

Tottenham almost won it in the 88th minute on a counter attack as Giovani Lo Celso had a shot from distance which beat Jordan Pickford but hit the post and bounced clear.

Substitute Mason Holgate was then shown a straight red card for serious foul play, after he followed through and caught Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Once again Jon Moss told referee Chris Kavanagh to check the pitch-side monitor and he upgraded the yellow to a red.

Lionel Messi rejects Saudi Arabia mega-offer, will sign with Inter Miami


Lionel Messi will sign with Inter Miami, opting to move to MLS this summer rather than return to Barcelona or join Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante in Saudi Arabia, according to multiple reports.

[ MORE: UEFA Champions League final, Manchester City vs Inter Milan ]

The deal will reportedly include profit sharing with two of MLS’s biggest commercial partners, Apple and Adidas, alongside his playing contract. According to reports, it could also include an option to purchase a minority stake in the club, which is partially owned (and operated) by David Beckham, who signed a similarly unique deal when he joined MLS in 2007. Beckham’s contract gave him a $25-million option to purchase an expansion franchise, which he exercised in 2018.

Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire on June 30 and the Ligue 1 club announced earlier this month that the Argentine superstar — widely considered the greatest player of all time — will leave the club this summer.

Perhaps Inter Miami and MLS weren’t Messi’s first-choice option this summer, as his father previously stated his son’s desire to return to Barcelona, where he famously won 21 major trophies before an unceremonious exit amid financial troubles in the summer of 2021, but those issues still linger two years later. The offer from Saudi Arabia would have reportedly paid Messi, 35, $1.6 billion over three years.

Gerardo “Tata” Martino, who previously worked with Lionel Messi at Barcelona (2013-2014) and Argentina (2014-2016), is reportedly the leading candidate to replace the recently departed Phil Neville as head coach.

Inter Miami, who currently sit bottom (15th) of MLS’s Eastern Conference with 15 points from their first 16 games, parted ways with Neville last week. In his two full seasons in charge, Neville guided the club to regular-season finishes of 11th (of 14) and 6th (of 14) in the Eastern Conference and qualified for the MLS Cup Playoffs in 2022.

UEFA Champions League Final: Key battles for Inter Milan vs Manchester City


Manchester City’s quest for the treble hits its final obstacle when Inter Milan goes toe-to-toe with the Premier League and FA Cup champions in Istanbul at Saturday’s UEFA Champions League Final.

Pep Guardiola’s weren’t at their very best against Manchester United in the FA Cup Final and still walked away with its second trophy of the season.

But City’s final two Premier League matches saw dropped points. The stakes were non-existent and the team quite changed by Guardiola, who’s known to fancy a tactical wrinkle. How will things change this weekend?

[ MORE: Man City vs Inter Milan preview, watch info ]

It would be stunning if Inter boss Simone Inzaghi came out in anything but a 3-5-2, which has been his go-to formation for Inter Milan this season regardless of opponent.

But might Inzaghi have something up his sleeve?

Inter’s only losses in the Champions League came in the group stage versus Bayern Munich. Add in their setbacks in Serie A and there’s still been no standard recipe for beating Inter. There isn’t one for Man City, either, of course.

Kevin De Bruyne vs Marcelo Brozovic

If there’s a single player capable of messing with Pep Guardiola’s plan to control the game and get the ball to his creators in dangerous spots, it’s Croatian veteran Marcelo Brozovic. The 30-year-old is a force who can both be the club’s metronome and break up the opposition’s best attacks. There are few players in the world like De Bruyne, but he needs to be found in space and City needs the ball to do that. Brozovic can be a big part of limiting both of those things.

Erling Haaland vs Francesco Acerbi

Maybe the two names need to be switched in order, because Acerbi is going to have his hands full with Haaland. The question is whether the 35-year-old Acerbi, still very good but no longer in his prime, can use his nous and vast experience to limit Haaland’s chances to do the exceptional. Haaland, meanwhile, just has to be himself. Ask yourself who’s being asked more.

Andre Onana vs Man City’s attack

Picking one player, even Haaland or De Bruyne, for this battle is unfair to the exercise because let’s be real. There is no chance that Inter Milan wins this game without a supreme moment or two from its goalkeeper. Andre Onana has played every Champions League match for Inter and has had his fair share of outstanding performances. He’s outperformed expected goals on target by 6.7 goals over the course of the tournament.

How many times has a team won the treble? Man City goes for history


There’s been a lot of treble talk these days, talk that’s found a new level of buzz since Manchester City moved within one win of joining the club.

It’s an elite club, by the way, of teams that have won their domestic league, top domestic cup, and the European Cup.

Nine times in history has a team won the treble, and only once has it been done by a Premier League club.

That’s why Man City’s defeat of Manchester United earlier this month in the FA Cup Final rings so true for the Citizens; The blue side of Manchester would join the red side as treble supporters, as United won the treble in 1998-99.

Man City goes for the third jewel of its treble crown on Saturday versus Inter Milan in Istanbul when it kicks off the UEFA Champions League Final.
