Everton vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 23 December 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
A three-win streak pushed Tottenham two points adrift of Chelsea and just six shy of leaders Liverpool after 17 rounds of the competition in the Premier League. Can the Spurs keep the splendid run of form going on Sunday when they travel to Liverpool to take on Everton at Goodison?
Mauricio Pochettino’s troops struggled badly to break the deadlock last weekend at home against Burnley, but substitute Christian Eriksen eventually made it count bagging a much-important stoppage-time winner after Harry Kane’s delivery. Kane was rested in mid-week’s League Cup quarter-final against Arsenal as he only came on as a sub to play the final half an hour of the affair. Spurs got the revenge for the recent league loss to arch-rivals in the North London derby as they dispatched Arsenal 0-2 at Emirates to make it to the semi-final of the competition.
Everton vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
Tottenham had no troubles with Everton in most recent set of head to head outings.
Spurs head into this off the back of three consecutive wins over the Toffees.
Tottenham netted at least three goals in each of these three wins.
Spurs are unbeaten in last 11 meetings with Everton.
Everton vs Tottenham: Prediction
The hosts will see their streak of tough fixtures continued here. They fell 3-1 away at Man City last weekend to make it four consecutive league games without a victory. The poor form saw Marco Silva’s men slide down to 8th in the league standings.
Everton were particularly easy to break down in recent matches. They drew 2-2 at home to Watford before losing 3-1 at Etihad. Such lack of meticulousness in Toffees’ back line will be the music to the ears of Harry Kane who is looking to add to his nine-goal tally in the league.
Tottenham have an impressive record on travels with 8 wins in 10 away games this season. Based on their current form and the latest H2H trend in games against Everton, we have to go for the away win at the 2.30 odds here.
