Everton v Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview

Everton will be disappointed with their opening half of the season as they are down in 11th place but it is very tight up to 5th place so they will still believe they can finish as high as 5th. Everton have been very strong going forward with Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku performing especially well and they have 35 goals to show for it which is the 3rd highest in the league.

But it is their defence that has been problematic this season as they have conceded the most goals out of any of the top 13 teams in the league with 28.

Usually you would think that they would be stronger at home but that is where most of the problems have come for Everton this season as they have conceded the most at home in the entire league. Going into this match, they have failed to win any of their last three matches at home and that will likely become four if they perform as they have recently because they are going up against a Spurs side that are unbeaten on the road since their opening day defeat to Manchester United.

Tottenham will be very pleased with their start to pushing for the top four because they currently sit in 4th place and are four points ahead of 5th place Crystal Palace. Tottenham have been very consistent so far this season and have lost just two matches in the nineteen played going into the new year.

They have been improving throughout the season and now, they seem to have found the right balance between attack and defence because they have conceded the fewest in the league with 13 but they can also cause you a problem going the other way as shown by the fact they have scored 33 goals.

Everton Latest Team News:

Unfortunately for Everton James McCarthy was forced off after just 25 minutes on his return to the starting eleven with a groin injury. But there is positive news for Everton fans as Phil Jagielka, Bryan Oviedo and Steven Pienaar could all feature in the squad this weekend as they near full recovery.

Tottenham Hotspur Latest Team News:

Despite playing a high tempo and high-pressing style of play under Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham are without just Mousa Dembele and Clinton N’Jie at this moment in time.

24/05/15 BPL Everton v Tottenham Hotspur 0 : 1
30/11/14 BPL Tottenham Hotspur v Everton 2 : 1
09/02/14 BPL Tottenham Hotspur v Everton 1 : 0
03/11/13 BPL Everton v Tottenham Hotspur 0 : 0

These two sides have faced each other on 159 different occasions over the years and it has been close between them as Everton have earned themselves 50 victories whilst Tottenham have edged it with 59.

But in the 78 meetings in which Everton have held the home advantage, they have been dominant after beating Tottenham in 33 of those meetings whilst losing just 18.

Using head to head statistics alone it would suggest that this game could go either way but Everton have the better chance of taking all three points in this particular encounter as it will be played at Goodison.

Everton are in poor form results-wise despite putting in some strong performances going into this match as they have won just once in their last five matches conceding nine goals in the process.

10/12/15 EUR Tottenham Hotspur v Monaco 4 : 1

Tottenham are coming into this match following three straight victories and four wins in their last five matches. And they have won both of their away games in that time which puts them in good stead heading into what should be a difficult match at Goodison Park.

Everton v Tottenham Hotspur Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think that this will be a close game because Everton can score past any opponent but because their defence lacks solidarity, Tottenham should be able to score at least a goal in this match.

I expect Tottenham to get at least a point out of this match because their defence is much stronger than Everton’s and if it comes down to out-scoring the opponent, I think that the defence will be the difference because both teams can attack effectively.

And as for my saver it was difficult decision between Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane but I have decided to go for Harry Kane to score anytime because I can see Tottenham getting two or three goals in this match which will give him a better chance of scoring.
