The statistics stemming from Tottenham star Christian Eriksen’s performance versus Everton this evening have been turning plenty of heads online.
Tosun pegs Spurs back
Mauricio Pochettino’s men visited Goodison Park a short time ago, for a Premier League clash.
The north Londoners headed into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, amid an altogether-underwhelming spell of form.
All told, Spurs had managed just a solitary win from their last 5 across all competitions.
Their most recent outing, meanwhile, saw the Lilywhites blow an early lead to eventually fall to a 2-1 defeat at Liverpool.
And, when the 90 minutes were said and done on Merseyside this evening, Tottenham once again allowed an advantage to slip through their hands.
The visitors took the lead just past the hour mark, when Dele Alli did brilliantly to dart inside and find the bottom corner of Jordan Pickford’s net.
A horrible incident 10 minutes from time, though, which saw Andre Gomes suffer a serious injury and Heung-min Son subsequently handed his marching orders, opened a route back into the clash for Everton.

And, with 7 of an additional 12 minutes on the clock, the Toffees eventually managed to pull level, courtesy of substitute Cenk Tosun.
On the back of their latest disappointing result, meanwhile, a number of Tottenham’s players have since had their respective displays called into question.
None of Mauricio Pochettino’s men, though, disappointed more thoroughly than Christian Eriksen.
Since missing out on a potential departure from north London over the summer, Danish midfielder Eriksen has had his commitment to the Spurs cause called into serious question.
And such criticism is unlikely to subside any time soon, based on his most recent showing.
As showcased below, Eriksen failed to offer anything of note going forward versus Everton, whilst also proving a liability on the defensive side of the ball.
In addition, incredibly, the 27-year-old managed to lose possession of the ball 16 times over the course of the 90 minutes:
