Blues dent Spurs bid

Everton put Tottenham's title aspirations in the shade with a 2-1 victory in a compelling Barclays Premier League encounter.Seamus Coleman grabbed a 75th-minute winner at Goodison Park after the outstanding Rafael van der Vaart had cancelled out Louis Saha's superb early opener.Spurs were caught cold after just three minutes as Saha finally ended his 11-month league goal drought with a fine strike from 25 yards.Hutton then compounded Everton's frustration by swinging in the cross from the right which led to Spurs' equaliser after 11 minutes. Peter Crouch pounced on a Johnny Heitinga slip to head the high ball back across goal and Van der Vaart was the first to react, meeting it with a powerful header Tim Howard could not keep out.Everton threw themselves forward as Jermaine Beckford sent Saha clear, and this time it proved decisive.Saha cut inside and although Gomes parried his long-range piledriver, Coleman followed up to put home the rebound with a diving header.
