Video emerges of Tottenham and Everton fans fighting each other in front of police horses

A video emerges of Tottenham and Everton fans fighting each other in front of police horses following Saturday night’s match.

The scrap begins with two people having it in the middle of a road with other fans watching on, however others couldn’t help but get involved with more punches thrown.

However it was over not long after with loud voices heard in the near distance and as can be seen in the clip below, a number of officers on horses swoop in to calm the situation down and break up the fight.

Some coppers hold back those involved, there were shouts of ‘get back’, and the video ends with the person behind the camera calling his mate to walk away from the incident…

The game itself saw Harry Kane score for a fifth Premier League game in a row to help Tottenham beat Everton; Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg capped the win with a late strike; Richarlison was in tears having been forced off with an injury against his former side; Demarai Gray and Amadou Onana missed big chances for the visitors.

Man of the match: Harry Kane (Tottenham)

Tottenham striker Harry Kane speaking to Sky Sports: “We had to be patient. The spaces opened up as they got tired; thankfully we kept knocking on the door and got a couple of chances. It was a really good win.

On his battle with England team-mate Jordan Pickford: “He made a couple of good saves and I snuck the penalty past him. Happy to get on the scoresheet again; it has been a tough week with loads of games. We’ve got to recover well and get ready for Wednesday.

“Whenever you miss a penalty the next one is the most important one. I’ve practiced so many against Jordan and I feel like I’m coming up against a lot of English keepers this season. It was nice to get that one, it was really important.”

Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg: “When you play every three days, you need to be able to maintain the level by doing the right things.”

On formation changes: “When you play with two in the middle and turn to three, it gives you an extra man. You can find your position and be a bit more patient. It helped us maintain the ball, which we need to do better.”

Everton’s Amadou Onana speaking to Sky Sports: “We had two big chances in the first half. If we score them it could be another game. Spurs did very well, they didn’t need many chances to score.

“That penalty broke us down mentally but we haven’t got time to feel sorry for ourselves. We’ve got to bounce back at Newcastle.”

On his chance: “I have got to do better, at least get it on target. But when I wanted to shoot, the ball jumps a bit, so I put it over.”

On Everton’s game plan: “It worked. We stayed compact and did very well and stayed together. If we scored those chances, it maybe would have been another game. We can definitely build on that.”

Everton manager Frank Lampard speaking to Sky Sports: “In the first half [it was] really disciplined, didn’t give Spurs the spaces they wanted. We had two great chances and they can be the difference in these games.

“If you take one of these chances you probably don’t lose tonight. There’s no doubt we came out in the second half slightly off it. The penalty is the difference in the game – I thought until then everything we were doing was good.

“If you watch Tottenham a lot, you know where there strengths are and you have to be adaptable. I’ve watched Tottenham and they’re happy to defend deep in their half and have a plan to attack.

“They’re in the Champions League and we’re trying to move up the table. Maybe there are some signs for me as a coach and as a team for where we can improve.”

Everton manager Frank Lampard speaking to Match of the Day: “The shape of the team was good, the defensive discipline was good. You have two good chances and you have to take those chances because they change the feeling of the game.

“We’re probably in that middle ground now where people have given us a bit of praise. This season was always going to be about getting better from nearly getting relegated and now we’re playing against a Champions League team – sometimes that shows a little bit.”

On Amadou Onana’s performance: “He had a good game and that’s what we bought him for. He did some really big individual defensive actions and had a chance to score which he’ll be disappointed in.”

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte speaking to Sky Sports: “We have to be really happy because in my opinion we played a good game, we created a lot of chances and had injuries during the game. That could have created something negative but we found a right solution to the game. I liked our attitude, we started very well and had to pay attention in the first half.

“I think Yves Bissouma was the best solution because he enjoys playing in front of central defenders with two midfielders behind him.

“Despite the difficulty of the game, we are talking about a good opponent and despite the injuries we were able to solve the situation. That means the players are growing in many aspects. I am very proud of the players.

“I think our fans will enjoy this performance and we hope to continue this way.”

More from Antonio Conte on Richarlison injury: “We don’t know, we hope it is not so serious he felt a problem in his calf.

“He will have an MRI to understand it tomorrow, we hope it is not serious.”
