Spurs draw with Everton in Conte's first Premier League game in charge

It was a case of new manager but the same problems for Tottenham at Goodison Park, as the North London side have now gone over three hours of Premier League football without registering a shot on target. The 0-0 draw with Everton left both sides with unfinished business and plenty to think about over the international break.

The visitors had no monopoly on frustration, of course, as the Toffees still haven't won in the league since September. That said, there is perhaps reason for optimism all round as Rafa Benitez's side looked much better than in recent weeks, while Antonio Conte, already with a European win under his belt, almost got off to a winning Premier League start when Giovani Lo Celso hit the post late on.

It's early days for the Italian manager on his return to London, of course, and the team will need time to adapt to his system and ideas. The international break, in that sense, has perhaps come at a good time and could give them the chance to get more acquainted with Conte's style before facing Leeds in their next match on November 21.

Everton, meanwhile, have a tough ask in the search for a win after the break as they return with a game away to Manchester City and then travel to Brentford before hosting Liverpool then Arsenal. Failing to take maximum points off Brentford could see the Toffees heading to the wrong end of the table as we approach the festive season.
