Pick that one out! Mirallas produces a moment of brilliance but it's not enough as Spurs come from behind

It had started so well for Everton at White Hart Lane.

IT’S WAS AN absorbing first-half in North London between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton.

Moments after Kevin Mirallas fired the visitors into the lead, Christian Eriksen levelled proceedings with a neat finish.

Roberto Soldado then completed the turnaround for Spurs as he capitalised on an error from Gareth Barry to score his first Premier League goal of the season.

Having enjoyed much of the better of the opening exchanges, Roberto Martinez’s side hit the front through the Belgian to heap more woe on under-fire Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.

That said, the hosts could hardly do anything about this strike…

Eriksen’s strike wasn’t as sweet but it was just as effective.

Just before the half-time whistle went, Tottenham pounced on Barry’s slip before Soldado applied a cool finish under Tim Howard.
