Everton fans have praised the impact of Turkish striker Cenk Tosun after his 97th-minute equaliser during his side’s 1-1 draw against Tottenham.
The game was largely overshadowed after the horrific injury sustained by Toffees’ midfielder Andre Gomes after a rash tackle from Son Heung-Min, with the South Korean star left in tears shortly before being sent off by referee Martin Atkinson.
👏 | Class, @CenkTosun_…

After a quiet first half of football on Merseyside, the second period exploded into life as Dele Alli gave the visitors the lead after 63 minutes.
The atmosphere was completely sucked out of the stadium after Son’s red card challenge on Gomes. However, it was soon injected back into Goodison Park after Tosun’s close-range header ensured that Everton shared the spoils with the north London outfit.
The header from the Turkish forward was his first league goal of the season.
Should Cenk Tosun be playing more?
Despite a game that will be remembered by an unfortunate incident, supporters were delighted with the contributions of the Turkey international and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the best reactions from Everton supporters.

I really like @CenkTosun_ Knows where the goal is and busted a gut to get on the field today, and also to get to the ball before DCL. Top pro

Why we don’t play him more is bonkers. We play one up top and he is probably the best we have at doing that. His movement and eye to poach a goal is way better than anything we have. Bonkers again from Silva. #SilvaOut
