STAR PREVIEW Everton v Spurs

first_imgThe relentless brilliance of Manchester City and Liverpool has dominated the attention at the top of the Premier League, but it is to Tottenham’s credit that they are still on the tails of the leaders as we enter Christmas.The gap between them and Liverpool has extended slowly – it’s nine points – but they are still on track for another year of Champions League football and they have reached the last sixteen of the competition to boot this season, all this with their new stadium to be opened soon.Everton, who are in the thick of the fight to be ‘best of the rest’ – and that might mean sixth – have made some good improvements over the summer but have also hit a sticky patch, with no wins in their last four.There was little they could have done against Manchester City but the week before they were lucky that Lucas Digne rescued them with a late free kick and Theo Walcott should have been given offside in the build-up to Richarlison’s opener.However, with the quality of Richarlison upfront and Gylfi Sigurdsson, Bernardo and Theo Walcott in behind, Everton don’t need to dominate to score goals and they have failed to score only once in their last four, against a Liverpool side that has let in just seven goals this season.Tottenham’s claims are obvious. They have won their last four in the league and gained perfect revenge against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup when Dele Alli and Christian Erisken were the standout performers, and whist they had to wait until the last minute to get three points against Burnley they dominated the majority of that game.Everton v Tottenham HotspurPremier League16:00 Sky Sports Premier League / Sky Sports Main Event / Sky Sports Ultra HDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)JAN 2018 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 4-0 EvertonSEP 2017 PREMIER LEAGUE Everton 0-3 TottenhamMAR 2017 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 3-2 EvertonAUG 2016 PREMIER LEAGUE Everton 1-1 TottenhamJAN 2016 PREMIER LEAGUE Everton 1-1 TottenhamAUG 2015 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 0-0 EvertonMAY 2015 PREMIER LEAGUE Everton 0-1 TottenhamNOV 2014 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 2-1 EvertonFEB 2014 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 1-0 EvertonNOV 2013 PREMIER LEAGUE Everton 0-0 TottenhamIn the shape of the aforementioned Alli and Erisken, aligned with Harry Kane and Heung-Son Min, Spurs have the weapons to strike at an Everton defence that has sometimes been opened up too easily, and 13/10 is big about the third best team in the country and the second best team on the road in the table.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK SPURS 5 points at 13/10 with starsports.betPROFIT/LOSS SINCE JAN 1 2017: PROFIT 180.28 pointslast_img
