Everton vs Tottenham preview | Latest team news | Expected Line-up’s | Prediction
This is our match preview ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Everton at Goodison Park including team news, line-ups and prediction
Tottenham will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.
Spurs continued their poor start to the season after letting slip an early lead to lose 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield last weekend meaning they’ve won just two of their last nine games in all competitions.
The north Londoners head into the match sitting on 12 points from their 10 Premier League games so far and are eight points adrift of the top four so Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to get their season back on track with a win on Merseyside.
However, Everton are also in desperate need of points as they sit 16th in the division and are just two points above the relegation zone so the pressure is on boss Marco Silva to turn their season around.
Tottenham will be without Erik Lamela as he’s been ruled out with a thigh injury that he picked up against Liverpool last weekend while Jan Vertonghen is also a doubt with his own thigh complaint.
Danny Rose misses the trip to Goodison Park this weekend due to suspension after picking up his fifth booking of the season so Ben Davies should start at left-back tomorrow.
Ryan Sessegnon could be in the Spurs squad for the first time after recovering from a hamstring injury while Tanguy Ndombele and Lucas Moura are pushing for recalls but Hugo Lloris remains out with an elbow injury.
Everton are hoping Yerry Mina is passed fit after aggravating a knee problem last week but Mason Holgate is on stand-by to deputise in defence if the Colombian international is ruled out.
Bernard is certain to miss the game due to a knee injury while Jean-Philippe Gbamin remains out with a long-term thigh injury.
Everton 2-2 Tottenham: This has become an important game for Tottenham as another defeat would see them fall further behind the top four and they’d face a tough task to catch up, even at this early stage of the season. Everton have been inconsistent for a while but Goodison Park can be a dangerous place to go, especially for the bigger teams as the Toffees usually up their game when the big-boys come to town. I expect a good game tomorrow and have a feeling Tottenham may have to settle for a point.
