Everton v Tottenham – 101 Great Goals prediction: Everton 1-2 Tottenham
The Toffees suffered a similar fate to Tottenham at the hands of Chelsea, with goals from Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas condemning Ronald Koeman’s side to a 2-0 defeat.
For the second week running, the Wembley curse struck Tottenham denying them three points, as Burnley’s Chris Wood scored in the dying embers of the game to make it 1-1.
Both sides enter Saturday’s fixture evenly matched, with a huge three points as they both chase Champions League football.
Tottenham v Everton betting tips
Tottenham are the favourites with the bookies to win this game.
Home side Everton are rated at 111/4 to win this Premier League match.
Harry Kane is the most likely goal scorer anytime. Gylfi Sigurdsson on his home debut, is rated at 3/1.
Point to prove
On Saturday, Gylfi Sigurdsson will face his former side and manager.
Back in 2014, Tottenham used the Icelandic midfielder as part of a deal to bring Ben Davies to Tottenham.
A decision which they are very much likely to be left rueing.
The 27-year-old this summer swapped Swansea City for Everton in a deal worth a reported £45m.
Sigurdsson has been a real standout performer in the Premier League each season since leaving.
It is very likely that the attacking-midfielder will be desperate to demonstrate to Pochettino exactly what he let go.
As we all well know, Daniel Levy once again left it until the final few days of the transfer window to complete deals.
This means that Tottenham have a number of players who are now in line to make their debuts.
Although, Serge Aurier is not expected to start for Spurs having played 120 minutes for Ivory Coast in midweek.
Meanwhile, Fernando Llorente, the most expensive 32-year-old in the world, could make a cameo appearance on Saturday.
Juan Foyth could make the bench but is unlikely to feature.
Everton team news v Tottenham: Rooney left out?
Wayne Rooney has been in the press for all the wrong reasons this week and subsequently, Ronald Koeman may opt not to select the forward.
Morgan Schneiderlin returns from suspension and is likely to start.
Davy Klaassen and James McCarthy are both doubtful after sitting out of international duty with their retrospective nations.
Long-term injuries mean Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori, Yannick Bolasie and Tottenham target Ross Barkley will all miss the fixture.
Tottenham team news v Everton: Wanyama a ‘couple weeks’ out
Tottenham fans will be desperately disappointed to hear that midfielder Victor Wanyama is expected to miss the next few weeks.
The Kenyan has been struggling with a knee injury which appears to have finally caught up with him.
#thfc TN: Wanyama (knee) likely out for few weeks, Rose (knee) out. Lamela “working outdoors, at an advanced stage of his rehabilitation”.
