Everton vs Tottenham Preview, Team News, Likely Line-ups & Predicted Score

By on December 9, 2012

Goodison Park

Tottenham play Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday looking to maintain their push for a top-four place.

Spurs head into the game in great form having won their last three Premier League games – a run that’s taken them into fourth place and another win this weekend will move the Lillywhites level on points with third-placed Chelsea, who beat Sunderland 3-1 on Saturday.

Everton on the other hand have not won in their last three games and have slipped to seventh in the table, so David Moyes will be keen to get back to winning ways.

Team News

The home side are expected to name an unchanged line-up for the game having put in an impressive display during last weekends 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

Phil Neville remains out with a knee injury and is joined by long-term injury victims Kevin Mirallas and Victor Anichebe on the sidelines.

Andre Villas-Boas is without key man Gareth Bale after the winger picked up a hamstring strain last time out. Scott Parker and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are still at least a week away from returning to action, but AVB is hopeful defender Michael Dawson can recover from a hamstring injury to make the trip.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is expected to regain the No.1 jersey after Brad Friedel was given a run-out against Panathinaikos in midweek.

Goodison Park is never an easy place to visit with Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City and Man Utd all dropping points there already this season, and we think the Toffees will add Tottenham to that list on Sunday. Everton 1-1 Tottenham

    Dembele and Sandro as the back two of the mid, and adebayor in behind defoe i think will be more likely.
