Guglielmo Vicario admitted that he and his teammates are quite disappointed at not being able to hold on to a win at Goodison Park.
Even though Tottenham’s performance was lacklustre for much of the encounter, particularly in the first half, it seemed like the Lilywhites were going to grind out all three points.
However, they were hit with a sucker punch on 94 minutes. Predictably, it was a set-piece that proved Spurs’ undoing, with the ball falling kindly to Jarrad Branthwaite in front of goal after the cross came off Cristian Romero.
In truth, Tottenham had struggled to cope with Everton’s physicality in set-pieces all game, although they will feel that they had the chance to put the game to bed in the second period.
Vicario was disappointed with Tottenham draw
It was Vicario who was in the firing line for much of the afternoon, with Everton making it extremely difficult for the Tottenham goalkeeper to come out of his line by putting men around him.
The Italian has now taken to social media to admit his disappointment at the result and insisted that the players are determined to put things right against Brighton next Saturday.
Here is what the Spurs number has posted on Instagram:

Vicario would not have experienced a game like this in his career before, with Sean Dyche’s men clearly targeting what they saw as a weakness in the Italian and the referee giving the 27-year-old no protection. The goalkeeper is evidently the sort of character who learns from his mistakes and he will be better for this experience.
