ON MONDAY NIGHT Everton and Tottenham Hotspur played out a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park. However, the game was marred by several incidents, including one involving Ireland's Seamus Coleman.
So much going on at once, but what exactly did Seamus Coleman say to the stricken Harry Kane here?🤣pic.twitter.com/N39jbah5cB

During the second half, Everton's Abdoulaye Doucoure collided with England captain Harry Kane. The pair came together, and Doucoure slapped Kane's face in retaliation. The gesture resulted in the Spurs forward falling to the ground rather easily.
At the time, David Coote, the referee, gave the Everton midfielder Doucoure a red card for his actions.
Kane, still on the ground from the incident, received no love from the Goodison Park crowd for his antics. One man who also didn't take kindly to it was Ireland and Everton captain Seamus Coleman.
Coleman crouched down and could be seen voicing his anger at the England star. A number of fans on social media praised Coleman for his no-nonsense demeanor.
One user said, "Fair play to Seamus Coleman. Gave it to Kane straight."
While another said, "Embarrassing. Seamus letting him know. Just another incident in a long list of shameful ones for Kane."
Kane would rub further salt into the Everton wounds moments later after Spurs were awarded a penalty. The 30-year-old coolly slotted the ball past Jordan Pickford to score his 22nd goal of the season.
Although it was expected that Spurs would increase their lead with 11 men, Everton refused to lie down and continued to press and push for an equalizer. Six minutes after coming on, substitute Lucas Moura was sent off for a tackle on Michael Keane.
Everton would then find an equalizer from Keane a minute from time. The former Manchester United defender was allowed to progress the ball deep into the Spurs half and, without hesitation, took a shot from 30 yards that beat Hugo Lloris.
Everton's next game in the relegation fight will be against Manchester United on Saturday.
Before that, United plays Brentford tomorrow.
