Everton v Tottenham - Football Live Match Preview

Everton v Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham will be looking to improve on the Premier League's best away record when they travel to Everton on Sunday.

bet365 match odds: Everton 9/4, Draw 5/2, Tottenham 13/10

Tottenham will move within two points of second-placed Manchester City with victory over Everton on Sunday.

With Man City and Chelsea both suffering shock home defeats to Leicester City and Crystal Palace respectively on Saturday, Spurs have the opportunity to close the gap on City while stretching their lead over the Blues.

Tottenham trail Pep Guardiola’s men by five points and are a further four adrift of league leaders Liverpool.

A win will stretch Spurs’ lead over fourth-placed Chelsea to five points.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men go into the clash buoyed by the 2-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final win at bitter rivals Arsenal in midweek.

The win extended the north Londoners’ unbeaten run to six matches. In fact, Spurs have only lost one of their last 12 matches.

Although Everton have lost to Liverpool and Manchester City this term, Spurs are the first side in the title contenders bracket to visit Goodison Park this season.

Not only will the Toffees be keen to halt a four-match winless streak, they will also be desperate to end Spurs’ stranglehold.

Tottenham have won the last three meetings between the two sides, scoring at least three goals in each match with Harry Kane grabbing a brace in each of those ties.

TEAM NEWS

Andre Gomes and Richarlison missed a few training sessions due to illness but have both recovered sufficiently to put themselves into contention for Everton.

Midfielder Idrissa Gueye will be assessed after missing the defeat at Manchester City with a groin injury.

Harry Kane is poised to return to Tottenham’s starting line-up. The striker was only considered fit enough for a bench role against Arsenal after battling back from a cold.

Davinson Sanchez is in line to return after an extended spell on the sidelines.

Spurs will be without Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghen.

TOP TIPS

Tottenham to win @ 5/4 bet365

Harry Kane first goalscorer @ 3/1 bet365

Cheeky Punt says:

Spurs are flying right under the radar at this point mainly due to the fantastic exploits of Liverpool and Manchester City. But make no bones, they are right in this title race having plundered 39 points after 17 matches, which is more than four of the previous 10 eventual champions had at this stage of the season. They look good things to beat Everton too, given the Toffees are winless in their last 11 against the north London club."
