Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris became embroiled in a furious bust-up with team-mate Heung-Min Son as they left the field for half-time against Everton.
Lloris appeared to take exception to Son not chasing down an opponent in the dying moments of the half, with his team leading 1-0, and the goalkeeper ran straight over to the forward after the whistle.
Son, who completed military service with South Korea in April, seemed to dismiss his skipper’s demonstrations and the pair had to be broken up by team-mates as Lloris became angrier and attempted to push his team-mate.
The pair were seen making up with a hug as the team prepared to return for the second half, but it was a surprising eruption after a good half for Spurs following their 3-1 defeat at Sheffield United last time out.
An own-goal from Michael Keane, from Giovani Lo Celso’s shot, gave them the lead and they looked fairly in control until Son’s lack of a challenge allowed Everton to break and Richarlison to go close with a shot past Lloris just before the break.
Spurs were looking to restore their push for an unlikely Champions League place with victory over the Toffees at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, live on Monday Night Football.
