Tottenham have yet to win away from home this season but are faced with a stern test at Goodison Park, where Everton so far are collecting enough points to keep themselves above the relegation places.
It’s fair to say that both teams are underachieving this season, and Tottenham are struggling even more away from home. Everton have collected nine out of 10 points at Goodison Park but kept a clean sheet only for the second time this season during last home game against West Ham.
EVERTON TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Both teams have been involved in high scoring matches this season and Tottenham average at 3.10 goals a game, whilst conceding 11 goals away from home this season. Everton average at 2.60 goals a game and have scored seven times in five home games so far.
TOTAL GOALS OVER 2.5
Every match Harry Kane scores a goal in the Premier League for Tottenham this season, Spurs go to the break with a lead. Spurs fans might be hoping that the England attacker will find the net again against The Toffees, to secure another lead at half time
TOTTENHAM TO WIN AT HALF TIME
Head to Head
Tottenham haven’t lost to Everton since December 9, 2012, when both Steven Pienaar and Nikica Jelavic scored in stoppage time to grab the three points for the home side. Since then their form against Spurs shows 0-6-7.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
With two teams desperate to put points on the board, it’s either looking to be open at both ends or shop closed at Goodison Park. Tottenham have only kept one clean sheet, when they beat Crystal Palace 4-0 at home this September, and might be looking to keep Everton at bay and look to catch The Toffees on the break with their pacy forwards. It could be an open game, but both teams might be happy to share the spoils on Sunday.
