Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Everton boss Walter Smith conceded that we were on top and was delighted with his side's point on Saturday.

David Weir's stunning volley levelled things up after Les Ferdinand's opener and the Toffees defended stoutly as we pushed on for a winner.

Smith said: "It was a difficult game and they had the territorial advantage throughout, but we defended well.

"There have been a few away games where we have played better and lost, so I am quite pleased with a point because we did not play as well as we can play.

"We have a small squad and we've got a few injuries, so this is a good result, and the fact we restricted them to few chances apart from at set plays is a credit to our players.

"League games are like cup ties this season because a lot more teams are involved in the relegation battle than in previous seasons. You need a strong mentality to handle games, and I don't think we lack spirit or determination."
