Tottenham Hotspur leapfrogged Everton into fifth place in the Premier League after a single Emmanuel Adebayor goal in the second half was enough to secure all three points at White Hart Lane.

Everton were perhaps the better of the two sides throughout the 90 minutes but their failure to turn good possession and a number of good chances in to a goal proved costly as Adebayor slotted home with Spurs’ first shot on target.

Jermain Defoe came on late in the game to make his final Spurs appearance before making the switch to Toronto FC. Here’s how the game’s big talking points were reported on Twitter…
