Goodison Park

Punter's Pick

Everton welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Goodison Park in a mouth-watering tie between two of the Premier League’s stalwarts to round off the latest set of games. The managers of both teams are under pressure after relatively poor starts and indifferent form and there could be serious calls for heads to roll if either side fails to get something out of this one. With the quality that each side possesses on paper, this could provide the perfect stage for a thrilling game.

Everton come into this game having lost three out of their last four Premier League games and will be desperate to make home advantage count in this one. A 3-1 loss against Manchester City was followed up by a poor showing against Burnley where they lost 1-0. The pressure on Marco Silva was eased by a 2-0 home win against West Ham courtesy of goals from Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson but the Toffees again succumbed to defeat from a winning position, giving up a 2-1 lead against Brighton to lose 3-2 courtesy of two goals in the final 10 minutes. With the team Everton have the fans are within their rights to expect a higher position in the table and the manager will need to justify his investments if they fail here again.

Tottenham are in a similar predicament after enjoying top four success in the Premier League in recent years and making it to the Champions League final last season. They start this game in the bottom half of the table and have not won any of their last three Premier League games. A 7-2 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League set off a poor run which included a 3-0 away loss at lowly Brighton and a fortunate 1-1 draw against bottom club Watford. The Champions League provided some much needed relief where they beat Red Star 5-0 but lost 2-1 to leaders Liverpool from a winning position courtesy of goals from Jordan Henderson and Mo Salah. The team has been fragile at the back and the likes of Christian Eriksen have been called out for not fighting for the shirt in games. Dele Alli looks like a shell of his former self and there are always nerves when Serge Aurier is defending. This has left Harry Kane to shoulder the burden of responsibility on his own and the task is proving a big one as Spurs battle to get their season back on track.

In team news Everton are likely to recall Tom Davies and Theo Walcott who started on the bench during their midweek Carabao Cup game. It will be interesting to see who Marco Silva starts with up front as Moise Kean and Calvert-Lewin haven’t proven to be the most prolific of strikers. This could force the manager to push Richarlison up front with Walcott and Iwobi providing the support.

There are rumours that Harry Kane could be struggling for this one which would be a huge blow for the Lilywhites. It would likely mean that Lucas Moura will either directly replace him or come into midfield with Heung-min Son being pushed forward. Record signing Ndombele is likely to sit in midfield alongside Moussa Sissoko to provide the steel that has been lacking in recent games. Goalkeeper Gazzaniga who impressed against Liverpool will most likely keep goal in place of the injured Hugo Lloris.

In head to heads between these two, Tottenham have dominated this fixture over the years. Everton last enjoyed victory over their opponents back in 2012 with Spurs thumping Everton 6-2 in the same fixture at Goodison Park last season. Heung-min Son and Harry Kane both hit two goals apiece with Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen rounding off the scoring.

We feel that given the struggles of both teams that this will be a cagey affair. Neither team will want to lose and will ensure that there are enough combative midfielders to impose their control on the game. This will mean less space for the creative midfielders to operate in which could result in a stalemate between these two. We are backing the draw offered by Bet365 at well over evens as these two should cancel each other out and be happy with the point apiece.
