Spurs earn scrappy victory in the Premier League thanks to own goal from Keane

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris played down his half-time row with Son Heung-min after the 1-0 win over Everton.

Tensions were high at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Lloris and Son were involved in a heated exchange which involved pushing and shoving, and they had to be separated by team-mates.

France goalkeeper Lloris appeared angry at Son's perceived lack of effort, but the pair were later seen hugging at the start of the second half and again at full-time.

Lloris told Sky Sports: "It just belongs to the changing room. Outside you can say whatever you want. What happened is just part of football sometimes.

"There is no problem at all, you could see after the game we were fine. I think to concede a chance a few seconds before half-time because we didn't make a press annoyed me but yeah, that's football."

Spurs did at least bounce back from their disappointing defeat by Sheffield United last time out thanks to Michael Keane's 24th-minute own goal.

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti said: "We have to change our mentality [against top teams] – that's absolutely normal. We can improve day by day."
