Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview & Team News
Everton goes into this game after a thrilling comeback against Manchester United last weekend. Although Carlo Ancelotti’s side was trailing 2:0 at half time, they managed to equalize in the final moments of the match. The hosts sit in 7th place in the Premier League, but they are only three points behind Liverpool. The Toffees also have two games in hand, and they can potentially go into the top four. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and the lads are doing a very good job in front of the oppositions’ net. However, Everton struggles when playing at Goodison Park, as they picked up just a point from the last three home games. The home side managed to eliminate Rotherham and Sheffield Wednesday from the competition, but this will be the toughest challenge so far.
After three straight defeats, Tottenham Hotspur managed to get back on the winning track. The Spurs celebrated against West Brom last weekend and remained in the race for the continental spots. Their bad run matched Harry Kane’s absence, and Tottenham’s best player made an immediate impact upon his return. Jose Mourinho’s side suffered in those three games without him since the visitors scored only once. The away side needs to stabilize its form to stay competitive in the battle for the top four. Tottenham booked only one victory in the last five outings, and they need to do much better in this one. They were better than minnows Marine and Wycombe Wanderers so far in the FA Cup.
