Paulinho scored a BELTER for Spurs in 1-1 draw at Hull [GIF & Vine]

The honeymoon period under Tim Sherwood appears to be officially over.

A home rout at the hands of Manchester City and 1-1 draw at Hull now means Spurs are flagging in the race for a Champions League spot.

There were a few bright spots for Tottenham today, specifically the returns from injury of Jan Vertonghen and Paulinho.

The Brazilian has missed the last six games and has been missed with a timely return as Mousa Dembele is now injured.

Paulinho equalised in the second half with a fine take down and hammer of a strike to earn Spurs a point.

The former Corinthians midfielder has now scored 5 goals for Tottenham, pretty impressive considering his injury problems and the troubles that have afflicted the north London side this season.
