When two sides met at Goodison Park on the opening day of the season in August 2016, Everton and Spurs drew 1-1.

The last 3 meetings between the two sides have been draws, but Everton haven’t won at Spurs since 2008/09. Since then, Tottenham has won 5 and drawn 3.

Spurs season is entering a crucial phase. Just 4 points separates 6th from 2nd in the table and with Chelsea 10 points clear at the top, 5 teams are fighting for 3 Champions League places at the end of the season.

Out of Europe after an embarrassing aggregate defeat to Belgian side Gent, Spurs must reach the Champions League with a new stadium to pay for. Their home form is good; they are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League with 11 wins and 2 draws, including winning the last eight in the top flight.

With Danny Rose already out, Pochettino has Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld facing late fitness tests and needs the pair to pull through otherwise he is down to the bare bones in defence. Kieran Trippier and Kevin Wimmer are on standby.

Other than that, Spurs have no concerns. Eric Lamela continues his rehabilitation and the rest of the XI will be the same as the one which thrashed Stoke City 4-0 last weekend.

Everton go into this fixture knowing that a win will put them back into the mix for the Europa League places. Manchester United’s draw with Bournemouth means victory for The Toffees will see them climb to within 2 points of their bitter rivals, who sit in 6th place.

They arrive at White Hart Lane unbeaten in their last 5 away games and with only Dominic Calvert-Lewin as an injury worry. Ronald Koeman is likely to name an unchanged line-up from the one which beat Sunderland last weekend.

Romelu Lukaku becomes the club’s leading goalscorer in the Premier League with his next goal, currently on 60 with Duncan Ferguson.

However, he hasn’t scored away from Goodison Park in the Premier League since December 26th, 2016. During that time Everton have struggled for goals; this would be the perfect time for it to end.

Five of Everton’s last 7 away games has seen less than 2.5 goals, while Tottenham have conceded just once in the last 7 home games, including the last 4 which saw them keep clean sheets.

It’s not looking good for goal-shy Everton. However, they have found a way of tying Spurs in knots in the last 3 meetings and a point will be a good result for them.

The concern for the north London club is that their defence will be exposed if Alderweireld and Vertonghen are missing. If one of them pulls through, then Mauricio Pochettino will feel a lot more confident of taking 3 points.

While Everton aren’t scoring many, they are conceding many either. Just 3 in the last 5 games, and 2 of them came at Hull when they drew.

That said, Harry Kane has scored a hat-trick in his last 2  domestic games; can he make it three in a row? You wouldn’t bet against it.
