Everton 0-0 Tottenham: VAR overturns penalty for Hugo Lloris challenge on  Antonio Conte's Premier League bow | Mexicana Post Antonio Conte oversaw a 0-0 draw with Everton in his first league game as Tottenham boss as VAR overturned a penalty decision for a foul by Hugo Lloris. After a scrappy affair low on quality, the key moment came on 64 minutes when Lloris raced out to Richarlison and brought down the Everton forward. Referee Chris Kavanagh originally awarded the penalty but VAR intervened with a replay suggesting Lloris got a touch on the ball. Kavanagh and VAR had a busy afternoon as Mason Holgate was sent-off in injury-time after his dangerous challenge on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was upgraded from a yellow to a red following a review. Despite Everton arriving on the back of three straight defeats, Spurs never stamped their authority on the game under their new boss. Giovani Lo Celso hit the post with two minutes remaining but Tottenham have now failed to score in their last three games in the Premier League, a run of 347 minutes without a goal, and they have not had a shot on target for their last 225 minutes of league football.
