Despite being well against the odds, Mauricio Pochettino’s men came from a 3-0 aggregate loss position in the second half of the second leg to overcome Ajax at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Wednesday evening.
Lucas Moura was the hat-trick hero on the night as he helped seal a place in the Champions League final in the last minute to break Ajax hearts and set up what could be an absolute classic against Liverpool.
Pochettino’s stock has risen even higher after this week, with much being said about his ability to take Tottenham to the Champions League final with no new signings in two windows – Moura was ironically Spurs’ last signing in January 2018.
If anything, Spurs' European adventure has masked a poor end to the Premier League campaign, with Tottenham losing seven of their past 11 games, although their top-four place is arguably a mere formality, being three points ahead of Arsenal with a far superior goal difference.
Pochettino would probably want to rest players given the circumstances, but his squad is so depleted, he may have to play his big hitters.
Jan Vertonghen is out with an ankle knock, while Son Heung-Min and Juan Foyth start the first of three-game domestic bans.
Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama will be assessed, while Harry Kane and Harry Winks remain out.
Everton have improved steadily over the season Under Marco Silva, having looked disjointed under the Portuguese initially.
They will try and consolidate eighth place with a win, having lost only one of their last seven Premier League games.
They are poor travellers to Tottenham though, having not won away at the old White Hart Lane or Wembley since November 2008.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Seamus Coleman are out of the game but Andre Gomes can return after a three-match ban.
Tottenham will be looking for a possible third place finish when they take on Everton this Sunday afternoon.
While things may most definitely be going their way in the Champions League, they’re certainly not in the Premier League.
A few months ago, Spurs seemed to have third place in the bag however, a number of defeats later they find themselves in fourth – a total of 25 points behind the league leaders.
Everton, on the other hand, will be looking to secure their 8thplace finish after what has been a largely successful campaign.
Looking at the head to head record, one thing is clear about this particular fixture – expect plenty of goals. In their last four encounters there have been 20 goals.
Unfortunately for Everton, most of these goals have ended up in their own net. They will be hoping to end a run of four straight defeats against Spurs when they travel to their opponents’ new stadium.
The recommendation is to back the visitors in this game. Tottenham clearly have their eyes set on the Champions League final and this may give Everton an opportunity to grab a point, if not three.
Everton to win by a margin of one goal – 9/2 bet365*
