Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London
A single point is all Tottenham need to guarantee a top four finish but after a bad-tempered encounter with Bournemouth in their last game, Spurs may be left a little short with in-form Everton looking to finish strong.
Tottenham’s season rests on the Champions League with the small consolation that a top four spot in the Premier League is theirs all but for a major shock on the final day of the season.
However, it should, and could have been so much more with a title challenge falling by the wayside and third place slipping from their grasp when it looked easier to keep their rivals at bay.
Five defeats in Tottenham’s last six games in all competitions has left Mauricio Pochettino’s men facing the possibility of missing out on the top four although a draw against Everton will be enough to guarantee fourth place.
That may not be as simple as it may look on paper as the Toffees come into the game on strong form despite being underdogs with a host of popular sportsbooks in the outright betting markets.
Five wins in their last seven games has given Everton a positive lift as they close out the season with Marco Silva’s ideas finally coming to fruition with next season suddenly looking an exciting prospect after a largely underwhelming campaign for the Merseysiders.
Everton are further helped in their cause for three points as Juan Foyth and Son Heung-Min will be absent from the squad due to suspension.
That suddenly helps level the playing field especially as the Lilywhites will have put all their efforts in the Champions League second leg with Ajax in mid-week making a fourth draw in the side’s last eight games a fair and likely result with a 1-1 the predication.
Tottenham may have only drawn once this season, but it did come at home whilst the pair have drawn a total of three times in their last seven meetings making this the best value bet with online betting sites for the outright match result.
Richarlison to score anytime
Brazilian superstar Richarlison is the Toffee’s joint top scorer this season with 14 Premier League goals and is a guaranteed starter – fitness depending – making the odds to hard to ignore.

Head to Head
Tottenham ran riot at Goodison Park earlier in the season as a Kane and Son brace each saw Spurs run out 6-2 winners two days before Christmas.
In fact, you have to go back to November 2008 for the last time the Toffees claimed victory at Tottenham when a Vedran Corluka own goal settled matters in favours of the visitors.
Overall, Tottenham have claimed 67 wins over the Toffees with Everton winning 55 times and a total of 54 draws.
