Champions League finalists Tottenham sealed a fourth-place finish in the Premier League as they ended their campaign with an entertaining draw with Everton.

Tottenham knew a point was enough to secure one of the Champions League places for a fourth successive season under manager Mauricio Pochettino, but Spurs missed the opportunity to record back-to-back third-place finishes as Chelsea were held by Leicester.

Eric Dier capitalised on poor Everton defending to open the scoring after just three minutes as he was given ample time and space to convert Erik Lamela’s corner.

The visitors recovered well from their slow start but took until the 69th minute to level through Theo Walcott’s fine finish.

Cenk Tosun put Everton ahead three minutes later, but Christian Eriksen’s sublime free-kick after 75 minutes earned Spurs the point they required.

The result sees Everton match their eighth-place finish of the previous campaign in Marco Silva’s first season in charge.
