Tottenham v Everton: Toffees ready to stifle Spurs’ top-four bid
Sunday’s Premier League double begins at White Hart Lane where Tottenham host Everton. Victory would take Spurs one step closer to top-four security, but it won’t be easy against the in-form Toffees.
Ronald Koeman’s side are flying right now, and ahead of this weekend’s fixtures, they top the Premier League form table with four wins and two draws from their last six.
But the Merseysiders have been in good nick for much longer than that, counting six victories and three draws in the last nine.
That hasn’t stopped our traders pricing up Mauricio Pochettino’s men as 8/13 favourites however.
Having lost just one domestic game at the Lane in over 12 months, an away victory is a rare occurrence these days.
With eight draws this season, only Manchester United and Middlesbrough have enjoyed a share of the spoils more often than Tottenham.
Plus, each of the last three meetings with Everton have ended all-square.
What we can also be confident of in this fixture is under 2.5 goals at Evens. Seven of the last eight contests have seen two or fewer goals netted, and we’re even-money that we see the same again.
That’s not to say this will be 0-0 however, with just two of the last 18 clashes ending in a stalemate.
And with Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku on show, both goalkeepers could be busy.
We profiled the two hotshots earlier this week, and they’re producing remarkably similar returns for their clubs.
And though they pair have contributed to just one of the last eight goals in this fixture, 17 strikes apiece for the campaign tells you what you need to know.
