Everton will entertain Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon as both teams look to go all out for the three points in this Premier League clash. The Toffees suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this month. In contrast, Spurs managed to earn a hard-fought 3-2 win over Vitesse in midweek which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

Talking Tactics

Rafael Benitez will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few tweaks to his starting XI for this game. The Spanish head coach will ask his men to work hard towards getting a positive result by playing some good football in front of their home supporters.

Antonio Conte will opt for a 3-4-3 formation and could be inclined to name his strongest first-team for this weekend’s clash at Merseyside. The Spurs boss will instruct his players to keep a solid defensive shape at the back and try to grind out a positive result on the road.

Team News


Dominic Calvert-Lewin (thigh/toe), Abdoulaye Doucoure (foot), Yerry Mina (hamstring) and Andre Gomes (calf) will be sidelined for this game due to injuries.

Everton Predicted XI

Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Digne, Townsend, Delph, Allan, Iwobi, Richarlison, Gray

Tottenham Hotspur

Bryan Gil is unlikely to be risked in this game as he is still recovering from a thigh injury. Otherwise, Antonio Conte has no new injury problems to cope with this Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI

Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies, Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Reguilon, Lucas Moura, Kane, Son

Key Men


Richarlison would have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for Everton up top. Both Michael Keane and Ben Godfrey would have to keep things solid at the back if they are to stop Tottenham’s Harry Kane from finding the back of the net throughout the 90 minutes.

Tottenham Hotspur

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Oliver Skipp will have to control the midfield if Spurs are to collect all three points on the road. The collective performance of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies on the defensive end of the field could very well end up determining the fate of this clash.
