Everton will take on Tottenham Hotspur in their season opener of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign. The Toffees have made some significant signings in the summer transfer window, especially the acquisition of Colombian skipper James Rodriguez is expected to provide them with a lot of impetus ahead of the new season. Players like Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure have also been brought in to stabilize the midfield, much to the pleasure of the Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Ancelotti will be delighted with the fact that defender Yerry Mina and midfield ace Andre Gomes will be available for selection ahead of this crucial encounter against Spurs. However, Mason Holgate is set to miss the match with a toe injury while the injury situation of midfielder Fabian Delph will be assessed ahead of the fixture.
England number one Jordan Pickford, who had a mixed campaign with the Toffees in the last term, will look to turn things around as he is the first choice to start in the goal against Tottenham.
The four-man backline is expected to feature captain Seamus Coleman in the right-back position while Lucas Digne starts on the left. Michael Keane and Yerry Mina would begin at the heart of the defence for the Merseyside club.
With several new signings coming in, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure are expected to start in the central midfield for their first outing in Everton colours. It should provide Ancelotti’s side with a lot of stability that they missed in the last term in the middle of the pitch.
Andre Gomes is expected to start alongside the duo in a new-look three-man midfield.
A change in the attack from the last term could see James Rodriguez starting on the right flank with Richarlison galloping down the left for the Toffees. It will be really exciting to see how the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich ace fares with the English style of football.
A lot will be depending on the young shoulders of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is expected to lead the line for the Toffees against Spurs. He seems to have improved leaps and bounds under the tutelage of the Italian gaffer and will be raring to go on the scoresheet when Everton and Tottenham lock horns against each other at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
