This was a horrible goal for us – a gift for Everton who broke fast and furiously and caught the Spurs backline too high up and half asleep.
Rodon commits himself and is wildly out of position. Toby to his left (our right) is suddenly in the unenviable position of now facing our goal.
The cross is inevitable, and yet Sissoko, Rodon, and Dier all processing the information using dial-up. Bear in mind that the goalscorer Gylfi is the player in the blue shirt in between Aurier and Moussa at this point. He knows what he wants to happen.
What’s incredible, is the outfield Spurs man that watches all of this, Eric Dier, has no awareness of what is going on. His body is still facing the direction of the cross until the last minute, and yet the only Everton player that’s any threat is Gylfi Sigurðsson, who incidentally was untroubled by Aurier who didn’t bother to even try and get goal side of the Icelander.
By the time the shot is struck, we have Dier STILL without his body open looking to block Siggy, and Aurier and Sissoko wandering in as if it’s all someone else’s responsibility.
If you only half watch the video it all happens so fast, Everton looks like Argentina. But the truth is, if some Spurs players had put sugar in their half-time mug of tea as opposed to beta-blockers, then this could have been prevented.
