Everton v Spurs: Betting Preview
Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs make the journey to Goodison Park this Sunday for their Premier League match against Everton, and will no doubt be hoping that they continue their good form.
British Bookmakers offer Spurs as favourites, and they really need all 3 points if they want to keep their top 4 spot, as their rivals all have relatively easy fixtures this weekend.
Spurs come into the match on the back of beating Arsenal 2-0 to reach the Semi-Final's of the Carabao Cup as well as their stunning qualification for the Last 16 of the Champions League.
They also haven’t lost to an Everton side for nearly 6 years, and so Pochettino will be determined that his Spurs side come away from Goodison Park with a victory on Sunday.
Since Everton’s last victory against Spurs back in 2012, there have been 11 matches between these two sides, with Spurs winning 6 of the fixtures and 5 ending in draws.
Spurs have looked so much stronger than Everton in recent years, and even though they have some injury concerns to deal with, Spurs should on paper be the side that's more likely to win.
In the lead up to the Everton v Spurs match, we've taken a look at both team’s recent performances, and any injuries that could affect either managers preparations for the game.
Everton had a pretty poor start to their 2018-19 Premier League campaign, and while they seemed to find their form ahead of the Merseyside derby, Silva’s men haven’t won any of their last 4 fixtures since they lost to Liverpool.
They're currently in 8th place on 24 points, with 6 wins from 17 matches, and while they could benefit from a win, Spurs aren't looking like a side that will allow them to take all 3 points.
The last 2 matches that they've played against Spurs have seen Everton remain goalless over the 180 minutes, with impressive 4-0 and 3-0 wins for their opponents.
Everton also suffered a 3-1 loss away to league leaders Man City last weekend, and looked unconvincing going forward despite Calvert-Lewin's scoring a consolation goal.
Luckily Marco Silva only has one player in doubt for the match, as Gueye is still recovering from a groin strain sustained in the 2-2 draw against Watford on December 10th.
If Everton can hold Spurs to a draw, it would be a fantastic outcome, and with fixtures against Burnley and Brighton coming up, they'd be in a much better position coming into the New Year.
Spurs are having a fantastic season, and will no doubt also have had their confidence boosted by an almost impossible qualification to the Last 16 of the Champions League last week.
Pochettino’s men come into the Everton match sitting in 3rd place, just 6 points behind current league leaders Liverpool, following last weeks 1-0 victory against Burnley.
Spurs have actually won 13 of the 17 Premier League matches that they've played so far this season and are currently the only team yet to draw a match.
They may look strong, but Spurs have quite a long list of injured players to deal with ahead of the Everton match, with Dier, Vertonghen, Wanyama, and Dembele all potentially ruled out.
Some positive news for Pochettino is that Sanchez, Aurier and Foyth are all expected to return from injuries and be selectable for the line-up that's set to face Everton.
The sheer number of missing players could cause some concern for Pochettino, but Spurs are a team in good form and it shouldn’t cause too much of a problem for the squad.
Given their performances so far this season, it’s no wonder that the majority of online bookmakers offer Spurs as the favourites to win the match at Goodison Park on Sunday.
If they can take the full 3 points, they’ll be in a much stronger position heading into their next 3 fixtures against Bournemouth, Wolves and Cardiff, before playing Man Utd on January 13th.
