This is a very different Everton side to the one you know.
Three points away from home against big six side. What a massive result that is.
And stellar performances from each of their debutants.
Spurs looked uninterested and incapable. Mourinho has a huge job on his hands. Will he dive into the transfer window?
Sissoko whips in a cross but Pickford, who made two crucial saves in the first half, collects.
- OffJames RodríguezEverton
- OnTom DaviesEverton
Rodriguez makes way for Davies to what would be rapturous applause if there were fans in the ground.
- OffDominic Calvert-LewinEverton
- OnMoise KeanEverton
If you're an Everton fan, you have to be excited.
This midfield of Doucoure, Allan and James is capable of big things.
Spurs dominating possession now but Everton are holding firm. I cannot remember the last time Kane touched the ball. Moura is the only player in white who looks interested in winning this game.
Richarlison goes down in a clash with Hojbjerg. Very much a 50/50 where both playres look pretty bashed up.
Spurs have had a little more to them in the past few minutes but just a corner to speak of in all honesty. It';s still nowhere near enough.
- OffMatt DohertyTottenham Hotspur
- OnTanguy N'DombeleTottenham Hotspur
Doherty makes way for Ndombele, who is hardly one of Mourinho's favourites but he's still a Tottenham player.
Everton are playing like the team that need a goal. They haven't dared switch off since they scored and that's surely Ancelotti's doing.
Spurs look lifeless and bereft of ideas.
Another chance for Richarlison! Can they kill this game off!
No! The Brazilian once again cuts inside but once again it's a yard wide.
DIGNE THE PROVIDER
Rodriguez picks out Richarlison down the left. The Brazilian cuts inside but bends it just a foot wide. Close!
- OffAndré GomesEverton
- OnGylfi SigurdssonEverton
Moura can't generate the power to trouble Pickford but it's Spurs' first attempt on goal in the half.
Sigurdsson is on for Gomes.
Where's the reaction?
Everton are knocking it about the pitch and have had 74 per cent possession in the last five minutes.
But Tottenham are not even pressing! Do something!
Everton looking very comfortable and coherent.
Spurs looking very frustrated and neither Kane or Son has had a moment on the ball in this half.
No messing about, Winks is off and Bergwijn is on.
Mourinho is furious because Digne took that free-kick about five yards forward from where the foul took place.
Is Ancelotti ushering a new dawn at Everton? Top players at all ends of the pitch, world-class manager, beating Spurs away...
What do Mourinho's men have in the bank?
- GoalDominic Calvert-LewinEverton
Everton have the lead!
Digne curves in an absolute masterpiece of a free-kick and Calvert-Lewin is there to head home. What a cross that is.
James finds Richarlison now at the back post but the Brazilian jumps a little too early and can't get any power on the header.
He must do better there. Calvert-Lewin finds the Colombian in space 12 yards out but the midfielder barely makes contact.
Early corner for Spurs.
Son to take but it's straight at a blue shirt.

SECOND HALF HERE WE GO!
Sissoko moves over to the right hand side, Moura comes inside. Mourinho isn't messing about, something didn't click in that first half and he's doing something about it.

ALLI OFF AT HALF-TIME
- End of 1st Half
Chances at either end, the best falling to Richarlison who missed that open goal.
The Toffees started the stronger side but Spurs have grown into this and Pickford has kept out big chances from Doherty and Alli.
Doherty is a born attacker and is looking very dangerous down the right. Again he almost finds space for the spot.
Spurs finishing the half strongly.
Richarlison up the other end rifles the ball down Lloris' throat.
Doherty is denied a dream debut goal as he plays a one-two with Kane, the striker lifting the ball over the top only for the right-back to find Pickford's right boot.
Hojbjerg passes the ball straight off the field and Mourinho makes a stern note on his pad. I imagine he'll get a talking to for that at half time.
Spurs win a wide free-kick and Son steps up.
Everton are very deep defending this but the South Korean fails to clear the first man.
James lines one up and has Lloris scrambling down to his right as the ball drifts narrowly wide.
Kane has barely had a sniff this half and there's been very little service going his way.
Moura starts a big break and finds Son down the left. Son holds it up and picks out Alli who forces a great save from Pickford.
Kane is furious than Son didn't play him through down the left.
Martin Atkinson stops play after an Everton ball whacks him and Alli finds himself in possession.
It's a drop ball and Spurs concede possession.
Richarlison is penalised for a handball in the Spurs box.
James is looking good in the middle, always in space and looking up. We know he's capable of a long-range stunner too, and his teammates would do well to give him service on the edge of the 18-yard box.
Son now with the chance but Coleman heads away!
Chaos in the Everton third.
Alli is now in behind but his square pass is straight at Keane.
Spurs on top now.
Son's ball in is inches away from Harry Kane who just needs the slightest of touches to put Spurs ahead.
Doherty us playing high on the right side as he's used to do at Wolves, but without three centre-backs behind him he was almost exposed there, because he was nowhere to be seen when Richarlison was in down the left.
Fantasy football managers beware, Doherty may have to have the reigns put on him.
Alderweireld was very slow on the uptake there, even if Davies backpass was sloppy.
Richarlison had his number for pace and did all the hard work, but he's blown the chance.
WHAT A MISS!
Richarlison is through after a very shaky backpass by Davies. He sweeps past Lloris and the goal is wide open but it's tough on the angle and he shanks it over.
A gift of an opening and they've spurned it.
Spurs targeting Coleman at right-back with Son's runs behind but so far Everton look the more accomplished side.
The quality of their play up to the final third is looking very good, but now they need to get some killer passes in.
Everton looking very comforatble on the ball with their new spine of Doucoure, Allan and James.
Mina completes an all-Colombia pass to James and the Toffees press Spurs again.
First sign of James the playmaker as he slots in Gomes down the left, but Calvert-Lewin eventually concedes possession.
England captain Harry Kane has his first touch of the game and almost sets Son away with a clever dink over the top.
Son almost gets in behind Coleman but the right-back makes a fine recovery.
The South Korean is so quick though...and Alli was in the middle ready waiting for a tap in.
Typically lively start from Lucas Moura as Alderweireld picks him out from deep.
Everton yet to have a touch of the ball after 80 seconds.
Coleman goes up against the man who has displaced him in the Ireland team, Matt Doherty. And Doherty does get his first few touches in a Spurs shirt.

HERE WE GO!
THREE MINUTE WARNING
LAST TIME EVERTON BEAT SPURS
...Sir Alex Ferguson was still in the Man Utd job.
Cast your mind back to 2012. Everton beat Spurs 201 at Goodison Park.
But there's a distinctly different feel about Ancelotti-inspired Everton.
Top four struggle for Spurs.
Spurs could certainly challenge for fourth place if they hit the ground running. They have had months off compared to the other top sides, and both these Spurs players and Mourinho squads in the past have delivered some brutally fit and energetic sides.
Beyond that, the most important thing to keep an eye on is the January transfer window. If Spurs are struggling and Mourinho doesn't get any help, expect him to kick off. Levy will know that Mourinho is a chequebook manager who rarely backs down, so there could be fireworks.
The other extension of that is that into a second season some players might tire of him acting as captain aggro. Despite his £15 million wages, at some point it will be cheaper to sack him than replace the insurrectionists. This though is Mourinho's last chance at a high profile club, and it is in the city he loves. Perhaps this time he will finally change his ways. Probably not though.
MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
Mourinho has criticised his side for being 'too nice', and looks determined to turn them into born winners.
"Our ambition is to win every match," said Mourinho in an interview with Sky Sports. "Our target is to go to every match, thinking and feeling that we go to that match to win. It doesn't matter the competition, the opponent, I want Tottenham to have this level of confidence to go to every match to win.
"It is good to be nice lads, but it is good also to have that competitive mentality, that aggression and ambition that you need. I was never afraid to establish with my boys some difficult targets, and not be afraid of going for it."
All eyes on the Colombian after Ancelotti signed him for the third time after bringing him to Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Allan, who joined this summer from Napoli, also grabs himself a debut.
Oh, and Doucoure, who joined Everton from Watford.
DEBUTS FOR DOHERTY AND HOJBJERG
Doherty, who joined from Wolves, starts at right-back today over Serge Aurier, while Hojbjerg also gets a debut after his move from Southampton.
EVERTON XI: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne, Allan, Gomes, Doucoure, James, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.
Subs: Virginia, Kenny, Sigurdsson, Walcott, Bernard, Davies, Kean.
SPURS XI: Lloris, Doherty, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Alli, Son, Kane, Moura.

TOTTENHAM VS EVERTON
Good afternoon and welcome to our live-text coverage of Tottenham vs Everton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Both sides have high hopes this season.
Jose Mourinho wants his side to learn how to ‘win ugly’, while he’ll be desperate to restore Spurs to Champions League status and perhaps even win them a trophy.
Everton, on the other hand, begin their first season under stewardship of three-time Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti, who joined the club last December.
They’ve signed Colombian supremo James Rodriguez and Brazilian Allan, both drawn to the club thanks to the Italian’s stellar reputation. Are Everton taking things to the next level?
A big week with plenty to prove for both sides, so stay with us for all the build-up, team news, hype and highlights ahead of kick-off at 16:30.
