Two of the Iberian Peninsula's finest coaches, Roberto Martinez and Andre Villas-Boas watched their respective Everton and Tottenham teams play out a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park.

Exemplifying that old football cliche, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur's 0-0 draw on Sunday was definitely a game of two halves.

Tottenham came out like a team possessed in the early stages, putting the home side under sizable pressure but struggling to create clear cut chances.

Things evened up shortly before and after the halfway point, at which time Everton began to turn the tables on Spurs.

The visitors defended resolutely in keeping the Toffees out as they were increasingly pushed on the backfoot. Inadvertently, Spurs benefited from their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris taking a blow to the head from Romelu Lukaku—the resulting stoppage helping to halt Everton's momentum.

Andre Villas-Boas' side move back into fourth thanks to the draw. Roberto Martinez's team sit in seventh, one point behind them on 19 points.

Read on for a few things learned from Sunday's game.
