Half-Time Report: Tottenham Hotspur, Everton goalless at break

Tom Cleverley is stretchered from the field after suffering a serious-looking injury in Everton's game with Tottenham Hotspur with the score at 0-0 at half time.

Tom Cleverley is stretchered from the field after suffering a serious-looking injury after several Tim Howard saves deny Tottenham Hotspur a half-time lead against Everton in the Premier League's late kickoff at White Hart Lane

Mauricio Pochettino kept faith with Harry Kane despite the striker's goal drought to start the season, and the England international had the first attempt of the game when he dragged wide from 25 yards.

The home side came close to taking the lead when Nacer Chadli teed up Nabil Bentaleb for a shot from the edge of the box, but the young midfielder's low effort was always curling away from goal.

Only a superb Hugo Lloris save prevented Everton going in front against the run of play when the Frenchman denied Cleverley his first Toffees goal by tipping the midfielder's effort over the bar after the former Manchester United man had robbed Kyle Walker.

Kane had a glorious opportunity midway through the half when he timed his run to perfection to get on the end of Ryan Mason's pass, but he hesitated when faced with Howard and allowed the American to make the save.

Howard saved well again from Mason minutes later before stopping Bentaleb's shot as Spurs pushed for a breakthrough, before he had to turn Toby Alderweireld's header from a corner over the bar.

Ross Barkley had an effort held by Lloris before the half ended in concerning fashion when Cleverley had to be stretchered off with his leg in a temporary cast following a challenge with Eric Dier, with Kevin Mirallas replacing the midfielder.
