Tottenham Hotspur welcome Everton to White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon with both sides looking to boost their top four hopes.

Spurs six sixth in the Premier League table, just a single points behind Everton, but with fourth-placed Liverpool extending their lead to five points following their impressive win over leaders Arsenal earlier today, it leaves both sides desperate for all three points in order to keep in touch with the top four.

Tim Sherwood’s men had to come from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw at Hull City last weekend while the Toffees will be looking to bounce back following their 4-0 thrashing at Anfield in the Merseyside derby.

Team News

Tottenham welcome Andros Townsend and Mousa Dembele back in to the squad. Townsend hasn’t featured for over seven weeks due to a hamstring strain but could make the bench tomorrow.

Dembele was forced to miss the game at the DW Stadium last week with a minor knock but could replace Nabil Bentaleb in midfield, while Younes Kaboul is also pushing for a recall.

However, while Sandro and Erik Lamela are both also close to making a comeback, this clash comes too soon.

Roberto Martinez is expected to recall Seamus Coleman for the game after he returned to the squad last week. Gerard Deulofeu is also pushing for a start after recovering from a hamstring injury.

January loan signing Lacina Troare could be in contention but defender Anolin Alcaraz remains out through injury and he joins Romelu Lukaku on the sidelines.

Likely Line-Ups

Key Man

Emmanuel Adebayor: The striker has been blowing hot and cold this season but Sherwood will need a performance from him tomorrow. Adebayor has the ability to be a match winner when he’s up for it, so Spurs will be looking to him to cause Distin and Jagielka problems.

Predicted Score

Tottenham 1-1 Everton: We can see Everton heading back up to Merseyside with a well-earned point tomorrow.

    erm,, sos kido.. don’t agree !
    Kabul has waited long enough & tbf if he dosnt play soon there Realy is no point,, he’s been out for nearly a season & a half & there comes a point where if he doesn’t play soon by the time he’s fully up & running he’l be just fit enough to get a great free transfer !! play him as half fit he is stronger, quicker & sharper than Dawson who would be third or forth choice !
    saldado ,, where do we start ? nearly every forward who comes into the league has a “free season ” before “second season syndrome ” if he hasn’t scored goals now next year will be harder ! (but he won’t be here !) thus my team would be lloris
    walker Kabul vertonghen rose
    Lennon paulinho dembele Townsend
    errickson
    addie
    one of evertons main strengths as a team is there full backs getting forward.. our wide men would make them think twice or punish them if they got coughs forward ! simple ! lol.
