Tottenham vs Everton
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Jose Mourinho has a tendency to really explode and deliver his best at any club during his second year, and as it happens, he is about to begin his second season with the Spurs. Even late into the last campaign, there were signs of the club coming into life, despite some injury problems.
Now, the team has had their much-needed break, their injury problems are at bay, and they are once again ready to take a shot at a top-four finish in the PL.
They are pitted against the rejuvenated Toffees, but still, the edge lies with Mourinho’s men. They have had a terrific h2h record against this opponent in the recent past, and despite some promising signings by Carlo Ancelotti, the talent pool is better at the Spurs’ camp.
As such, expect Tottenham domination this weekend.
Head-to-head (h2h) & Previous Meetings
- Mourinho’s men have recorded the past eight overall wins.
- In fact, the last they lost against this rival was back in 2012.
- They have scored a total of 20 goals from the preceding seven encounters.
- At home, they have been unbeaten since 2008.
- The Toffees have failed to score in six of their former twelve games on the road.
Tottenham vs Everton: Prediction
Mourinho’s men had ended their previous league campaign with a six-match unbeaten run (four wins), and this stretch included victories against some of the best teams in the league – Leicester, Arsenal, and the Toffees itself.
At home, they are on a four-match winning run in official fixtures, and including friendlies, it’s a seven-game winning streak.
On the other hand, their counterparts had ended their league season with nine winless games from their last twelve attempts – and two of these wins had come against teams which had been promoted just at the end of the previous season.
On the road, they were winless in ten of their preceding fourteen match-ups, and none of their sole five PL wins on the road in the 2019-20 campaign had come against teams in the top-eight of the table.
Going on, the Spurs also do have a terrific h2h record against this opponent in the past decade. In fact, they have remained unbeaten against them since 2012, and have not lost at all in an h2h encounter at home since 2008.
Taking into account these observations, it’s more than clear that Tottenham are the favorites for this upcoming encounter, and it’s only logical to back them to deliver a good performance this weekend.
