Harry Kane could not start the match
Jose Mourinho was very positive before the match. He thought Harry Kane could start the game as he recovered from the injury. Unfortunately to Tottenham fans, Harry Kane could play only 30 minutes in the game, so Jose had to change the starting line-up. Son was the only striker of Tottenham in the penalty area of Everton. Bergwin and Brazilian attacker Lucas were playing on the wings. Their main target was pressing higher and playing really fast football on counter-attacks. Lucas and Bergwin did their job perfectly in the second half. Lamela was playing from the deep midfield and he was always behind Son’s movement.
