Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur odds and betting statistics



Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur match preview

The calm after the storm that has been Tottenham Hotspur during the international break.

16 days ago, Spurs threw away a 3-1 lead at Southampton, conceding a stoppage time penalty as it ended 3-3.

Following full time, Antonio Conte criticised the players, the board, the ownership, the club’s culture and just about everything else he could think of.

Unsurprisingly, this didn’t go down very well although, far more surprisingly, it took over a week for his inevitable departure to be announced.

Then, this week, director of football Fabio Paratici was banned from all footballing activities worldwide, which makes directing football operations quite tough one would imagine.

The club appears to be falling apart but, for now, Cristian Stellini will take charge of a team who actually start the weekend fourth, so still have plenty to play for.

Given all of that, Everton will fancy their chances of a vital victory of their own in this Monday night fixture.

The Toffees twice battled back to draw with Chelsea last time out, with Abdoulaye Doucouré bundling home an equaliser, before Ellis Simms snatched a point in the last minute with a composed finish.

Sean Dyche’s team thereby moved up to 14th and are unbeaten in three, having drawn with Nottingham Forest and beaten Brentford.

Under Dyche, they’ve won three of four home matches, all by the same 1-0 scoreline.

Tottenham meantime are winless in four visits to Goodison Park, memorably beaten 5-4 on Merseyside in the FA Cup during lockdown.

So, can Everton pull further clear of the drop zone with a win?

Despite Ellis Simms’ goal off the bench at Stamford Bridge, Demarai Gray will continue up front, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin not expected to be back particularly soon.

In fact, Sean Dyche is expected to name an unchanged line-up, featuring Ben Godfrey at left-back, with Michael Keane having displaced Conor Coady in the middle.

Nathan Patterson is fit again, coming on during Scotland’s win over Spain last week, but captain Séamus Coleman’s impressive performances will see him keep his place.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Keane, Godfrey; Doucouré, Gana Gueye, Onana, Iwobi, McNeil; Gray.

Tottenham Hotspur team news

Antonio Conte deployed a back three in all 76 of his matches in charge of Spurs, with long-time assistant Cristian Stellini expected to continue that theme.

Emerson suffered a potentially season-ending injury during Brazil defeat to Morocco last weekend, so Pedro Porro will be the undisputed right-wing-back for the foreseeable future.

On the other side, Ben Davies missed Wales’ two games last week, meaning Ivan Perišić will come in.

Richarlison hobbled off after just four minutes at St Mary’s so, if he’s not fit, Dejan Kuluševski will return to the XI.

Predicted XI (5-2-3): Forster; Porro, Romero, Dier, Lenlet, Perišić; Højbjerg, Skipp; Kuluševski, Son Heung-min, Kane.
