Tottenham Hotspur are going strong in the ‘top four’ race but, at the same time, have failed to build momentum under Antonio Conte. They grabbed an edgy win this midweek versus Eintracht Frankfurt and the gaffer should prepare his men for another tricky contest when they would host Everton on Saturday evening.

The Toffees suffered a defeat last gameweek despite grabbing an early lead versus Manchester United. The fixture at the Lane would be a sterner test given their frailty in the defensive third and Conte, known for grinding out results in close encounters, has the upper hand as he has assembled a formidable squad.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton: Talking Tactics

The Azzurri chief will stick to his famous ‘back three’ to defend deep and hit the opponents on counter-attacks. His central midfielders are expected to hold possession under pressure and allow the wingbacks to make marauding runs from the flanks. The attackers would link up high up the pitch and convert from transition play.

Frank Lampard should continue with 4-3-3 which earned him back-to-back victories against West Ham United and Southampton. However, the Merseysiders must not fall into Conte’s trap and maintain a balance between defence and attack.

Harry Kane

Team News

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur will be without Emerson Royal who is suspended after receiving marching orders in the North London derby. Japhet Tanganga is sidelined with a knock, and so is Dejan Kulusevski as the Swedish ace is still recovering from a thigh strain.

Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI

Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Doherty, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Sessegnon; Son, Kane.

Everton

The absence of Anthony Gordon is a massive blow for Everton. The academy sensation is suspended after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season against the Red Devils. The crisis continues in the defensive third as Ben Godfrey, Nathan Patterson, Mason Holgate and Yerry Mina remain unavailable due to fitness reasons. Andros Townsend is another long-term injury absentee who is likely to return after the World Cup.

Everton Predicted XI

Pickford; Coleman, Coady, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Iwobi, Gueye, Onana; McNeil, Gray, Maupay.

Key Men

Tottenham Hotspur

While Erling Haaland is grabbing all the attention for his outrageous scoring streak, Harry Kane is doing his job having netted 8 times already in 9 Premier League outings. Son Heung-min is regaining his rhythm after a slow start, whereas the tricky movements of Richarlison would be menacing for the visitors.

Everton

Amadou Onana has been a revelation in the middle of the park. He, alongside Idrissa Gueye, must marshall the backline as well as carry the ball forward from the deep to operate in the advanced areas. Demarai Gray could cause menace with his swift footwork and finishing attribute.
