Everton’s unbeaten start to the season came to an end at the hands of Champions Chelsea last time out and the Toffees will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they host Tottenham on Saturday.
Spurs, however, are in a similar positon. After losing to Chelsea and failing to beat Burnley at Wembley Mauricio Pochettino’s side are 5 points adrift of league leaders Manchester United with just three games played.
Ronald Koeman was left disappointed to not bolster his squad late in the transfer window but will be hoping the additions he made earlier in the window are good enough to cement a top 6 finish and push for a Champions League spot.
In classic Daniel Levy style Tottenham waited until Deadline Day to get their business over the line bringing in highly rated full back Serge Aurier and striker Fernando Llorente.
The hosts head into the game with nine players set to miss the game including summer arrivals Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen who are both injured. Wayne Rooney faces disciplinary action from the club after being charged with drink driving last week, but is expected to start.
Spurs could hand debuts to Serge Aurier and Davinson Sanchez is in the Spurs defence while Llorente is expected to miss the game with a broken arm.
Heading into the game Everton are winless in their last night Premier League games against Spurs and face a tough task to change that on Saturday. That said, the last two meetings at Goodison Park have finished 1-1. It’s 6/1 for the same score line on Saturday.
Now that August is over Harry Kane is the obvious pick to open the scoring at 3/1.
Spurs are in good form on the road and look good value at 11/10 to win away from home at Everton.
