On Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur will visit Everton in the Premier League with both teams looking at the possibility of Champions League football next season. Both teams have started the season strong with significant changes to each team. Everton have parted company with long standing manager David Moyes, as he moves to Manchester United. Tottenham are now without Gareth Bale who left for Real Madrid in the summer.

Recent Form

In their last 6 Premier League games both teams have lost once, however Tottenham have also drawn one, with four wins. Everton on the other hand have won five of their last six games.

Head to Head

In their last 6 games, Everton hold the advantage. They have won three (50%), drawn two (33%) and lost one (17%). The games have produced an average of 2.5 goals per game.

Goals Conceded

With 9 games played, Everton have conceded ten goals so far. Tottenham have scored half that amount at five (an average of 1.1 and 0.6 goals respectively).

Although Everton have a weaker defensive record, their offensive record is better scoring 14. Five more goals than Tottenham.

Team News

Everton find themselves without key players, John Heitinga and Darren Gibson. Arouna Koné could be touch and go up until the match day as he looks to return imminently.

Tottenham could find themselves with a clean bill of health as Kaboul, Rose and Capoue are all set to return on match day.

Conclusion

The game could be a tight affair as Everton can hop over Tottenham with a win. Tottenham will be hoping that they can break their record of 1-0 wins and become a more open scoring team. But the head to head record forces me to conclude that Everton should win this or at the very least get a draw.
