Former England star Paul Gascoigne watched two of his old sides in action on Sunday
England legend Paul Gascoigne was in the stands as two of his former clubs Tottenham and Everton played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane.
Gascoigne, sat alongside former team-mate Gary Mabbutt, saw Spurs take the lead after just 33 seconds when Emmanuel Adebayor converted Jan Vertonghen's low cross in a match that was crucial for both teams as they bid for a place in the top four.
Everton levelled through England defender Phil Jagielka, however, and took the lead from a fine solo goal by Kevin Mirallas.
Then in a frantic finale, Adebayor struck the post and Gylfi Sigurdsson slotted home the rebound to claim a vital point for his side.
The match, watched by England Manager Roy Hodgson, also featured England Under-21 capped Ross Barkley and England senior stars Scott Parker, Michael Dawson, Steven Caulker and Leon Osman - as well as a fascinating duel between full-backs Leighton Baines of Everton and Kyle Walker of Tottenham.
Match of the Day pundit Alan Hansen picked out their battle as one of the highlights of the match - with Walker's superb run down the right wing helping to set up Tottenham's crucial equaliser.
Another of Gascoigne's old teams were in action at St James' Park, where England new boy Steven Taylor helped Newcastle beat Fulham by 1-0, thanks to a last gasp goal from Papiss Cisse.
Speaking after the game, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew said: "No money can buy how important that is to us as a football club."
In west London, England Under-21 star Ryan Bertrand played the full 90 minutes for Chelsea as they beat Sunderland 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.
Frank Lampard also came off the bench as the Blues moved up to third in the table thanks to an own goal from Matt Kilgallon and a strike from Branislav Ivanovic.
A few miles down the road at Loftus Road, there was last-minute drama as Wigan's Shaun Maloney earned his side a 1-1 draw at QPR.
Rangers, who fielded England Under-21 winger Andros Townsend in their team, had Bobby Zamora sent off in the first half before going ahead through Loic Remy.
Meanwhile Steven Gerrard's Liverpool, with Glen Johnson, Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson all in the side, were held 0-0 at home by West Ham.
But the big talking point was a disallowed goal from substitute Daniel Sturridge.
The England striker thought he had scored when he turned in Henderson's shot; but had his effort ruled out.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said: "The effort the players put in was very good. We just needed a bit of luck to go our way.
"I'm disappointed Daniel Sturridge's goal was disallowed for offside as I thought it was onside."
The match had been preceded by a minute's silence in the last game at Anfield before the 24th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster on 15 April.
