Brief delight for Tottenham following Paulinho's equaliser but a win against Hull was not forthcoming.

Hull City and Tottenham Hotspur fought out a breathless 1-1 draw at the KC Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The home side had opened the scoring after recent signing Shane Long caught out a momentarily flat-footed Jan Vertonghen to get on the return from a header he initially won. The striker raced towards goal and fired past Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham equalised on the 60 minute mark when Christian Eriksen played a free-kick short to Danny Rose whose attempted shot found the unmarked Paulinho. The Brazilian controlled and turned in one swift motion, then coolly blasted beyond the reach of Steve Harper.

Chances came and went for both sides in the last half hour, but neither proved clinical enough to earn all three points.

Neither club will be especially happy to have lost ground on the teams around them at either end of the table. A point was probably the fair result, however.

Read on for a few things we learned from this mid-winter clash.
