Watch Tottenham's Dele awaken sleepy match with goal, nap celebration

After a sleepy first hour at Goodison Park, Sunday's match between struggling Tottenham Hotspur and Everton finally showed signs of life -- thanks to a woeful error. 

Dele Alli opened the scoring for Tottenham in the 63rd minute, capitalizing on Alex Iwobi's errant back-pass. The former Arsenal man intended to pass to his defense, but the ball instead fell directly in the path of Spurs forward Son Heung-Min. 

Son's nutmegged through ball found Dele, and the English attacker did the rest. 

Tottenham and Everton combined for a lifeless first half befitting of a match between two of the English Premier League's most underwhelming sides this season. The Toffees attempted the only shot on target of the first half and began to ask questions of Spurs' defense in the second half.

Dele's celebration after his second goal of the Premier League season was entirely fitting, and just about the most entertaining portion of the match. 

Prior to Sunday, Tottenham had not won a league match away from home since beating Fulham -- who were relegated last season -- in January. Dele's tally had Spurs on the verge of waking up from their own long nap, but Tottenham could not hang on. 

Son picked up a red card in the 79th minute after his reckless challenge on Everton midfielder Andre Gomes resulted in a gruesome ankle injury. Gomes was carted off, and a long VAR check on a suspected Dele handball in Spurs' penalty area led to 12 minutes of stoppage time. In the 97th minute, Everton's Cenk Tosun equalized.

Dele's celebration showed more creativity than Spurs did in the attacking half during Sunday's draw. Tottenham, in the absence of star striker Harry Kane, managed just four shot attempts -- and only two on target.

Manchester United and Manchester City face off on Saturday at City of Manchester Stadium in another edition of the Manchester Derby. The rivalry had long been dominated by United, but City have had the upper hand in recent years, going 10-4-2 against the Red Devils over their last 16 encounters.

The Citizens lead the Premier League with 43 goals scored, and are tied with Leicester City for the best goal differential in the Prem. With 32 points, City comfortably sit in third place in the league table.
