Preview: Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton – Prediction, Team News, Line-ups

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking for their third successive victory when they take on Everton on Saturday in the Premier League. 

The hosts cruised past Nottingham Forest last week, while the Toffees are coming off the back of a penalty shootout loss to Fulham in the EFL Cup quarter-finals. 

Match Preview 

Tottenham further closed the gap on the top-four with a resounding 2-0 success over Nottingham Forest last weekend. 

Spurs dominated possession and created better opportunities to seal back-to-back victories in the English top-flight. 

Richarlison broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time before Dejan Kulusevski added another with 20 minutes into the second-half. 

Yves Bissouma received a red card for a reckless challenge but the Lilywhites held out to seal a comfortable win. 

On the other hand, Everton lost to Fulham in midweek after Amadou Onana and Idrissa Gueye missed their spot-kicks in the shootouts. 

However, the defeat is unlikely to dampen the fans’ spirits given their excellent run of form in the Premier League. 

The Toffees had dropped into the relegation zone after the 10 points deduction. 

But they have responded brilliantly to the harsh punishment, claiming four successive victories to create a healthy seven-point buffer over the drop zone. 

The Merseyside outfit secured maximum points at the expense of Nottingham Forest, Newcastle United, Chelsea and most recently Burnley in the English top-flight. 

Saturday’s away encounter saw Onana and Michael Keane scoring as the Toffees easily registered 2-0 victory at Turf Moor. 

Team News 

Tottenham will not have the services of Bissouma this weekend as he will be serving his suspension. Meanwhile, Rodrigo Bentacur, Ivan Perisic, Alfie Whiteman, James Maddison, Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon and Micky van de Ven will also be missing due to fitness issues. 

As for Everton, Dele Alli and Andre Gomes will remain sidelined, while Abdoulaye Doucoure and Vitaliy Mykolenko are also not expected to be available for selection.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton prediction

Tottenham boast plenty of firepower in their ranks, with Son Heung-min, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski all excellent attackers. But given Everton’s recent revival, we are backing Sean Dyche’s men to come away with at least a point from North London.
