Lloris parried his effort on the line, Lookman couldn't quite get enough on the ball to convert from close range but Tosun was on hand to force it over the line and put Everton 2-1 up with 18 minutes left.

In the 75th minute though it was 2-2, Christian Eriksen hitting a superb free-kick into the back of the net from outside the area.

After the full-time whistle, Tottenham's squad and their families went on a lap of honour of their new stadium.

Tottenham have qualified for the Champions League for a fourth consecutive season under Mauricio Pochettino, who has made playing in Europe's top competition something routine for the club since he took over.

"Of course it's better to finish third than fourth but the objective is to finish in the top four and it's nearly done but we have one more game".

"People need to realise what this group of payers is achieving".

"We have three weeks to prepare for the final, which will be one of the most important games in our history".

Tottenham saved their strength for the Champions League.

With little at stake for their two teams, it was understandable minds were elsewhere even if Tottenham squandered an early lead given to them by Eric Dier to fail to win a third successive Premier League game and finish behind rivals Chelsea in fourth position.

The suit, filed in Florida, claims Immesberger was overserved at the restaurant before getting into his vehicle to drive home. Woods snapped an 11-year major win drought by winning the Masters last month and seeks his 16th career major title this week.

Obviously you'll have the big players getting stuck into Man City and Liverpool (or laying either of them) but the other eight fixtures are effectively dead-rubbers with teams having no more than an extra place or two up the table to play for. "That is not where our challenge lies - we have a long and hard way to be where we want to be".

"Of course I can see (progress)", Silva said. That's the way we need to take the game and then what happens, happens.

The former United striker added: "The work starts now". The home side worked the ball through a large hole in the Blues' back line that put Erik Lamela into a risky position but he was bundled over by Gomes a couple of yards outside the box, setting Eriksen up to rap home the equaliser.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League meetings with Everton (W7 D5), winning each of the previous four in a row by an aggregate score of 16-4.

Four days after reaching the Champions League Final, after the night of our lives against Ajax, we face the in-form Toffees as we bid for third place in the Premier League.

Solskjaer said the past couple of months had been "extremely hard" for the club.

"The players and staff have shown so much character".

"We meet again July 1 and we'll work back to where we belong".
