Everton started their 2020/21 English Premier League campaign on Sunday, 13th September, with a narrow 1-0 victory over hosts Tottenham Hotspur.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men took the lead in the 55th minute with a header from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, assisted by French defender Lucas Digne.

With the win, Everton ended a streak of almost eight years without beating Spurs, with a record of seven draws and eight defeats in 15 games.

Speaking after the match, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho complained that Tottenham’s pressure was “lazy” against their opponents.

“To be honest, I think the fight started the way we pushed or, I would say, the way we did not push,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“Our pressure was very, very bad. I would say it was a lazy pressure. And when you have a light pressure you do not push, you let opponents build from behind and they have players of incredible quality. When you let them play from behind, they’re comfortable having the ball.”

Tottenham will next face Southampton on Sunday, 20th September, while Everton will clash with West Bromwich Albion a day before.

In another match played today, Leicester City beat West Brom 3-0, both goals were scored in the second half.

Belgium defender Timoty Castagne opened the scoring in the 56th minute while Jamie Vardy added two goals through penalty kicks in the 74th and 84th minutes.
