Tottenham Hotspur v Everton

Michael Keane's own goal gives Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 home win and Jose Mourinho a landmark victory

An own goal by Michael Keane was enough to give Tottenham Hotspur their second win in three matches, as they beat Everton 1-0.

The Toffees defender had no chance of getting out of the way as Giovani Lo Celso's shot deflected off him and past the helpless Jordan Pickford in the 24th minute.

Son Heung-min came close to doubling the lead early in the second half but sent a shot wide and was also twice denied by Pickford.

Everton couldn't find a leveller as Dominic Calvert-Lewin's late header was saved by Hugo Lloris and Djibril Sidibe drove wide in stoppage time.

Jose Mourinho's 200th Premier League victory as a head coach takes his side up to eighth place on 48 points.

Everton’s first defeat in three matches leaves them 11th on 44.
