Inconsistency has plagued these teams this season, with the Toffees in eighth on 48 points and Spurs on 49 but still six behind West Ham in fourth.
Everton vs Tottenham Latest Odds
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are winless in four Premier League games and are 9/4 (3.25) outsiders with bet365 to end that streak with a vital victory in this one.
Spurs have won only one of their last four in the competition but can be backed at 6/5 (2.20) to keep themselves in Champions League contention by winning on Merseyside.
A draw would not be particularly useful to either side and that result is available at 5/2 (3.50).
Everton vs Tottenham Team News
Jordan Pickford, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Josh King, Andre Gomes and Allan should all be fit for this one after missing Monday’s 0-0 draw at Brighton, but Bernard, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph and Abdoulaye Doucoure are out.
Spurs will be without full-backs Ben Davies and Matt Doherty, but otherwise Jose Mourinho has a full squad to pick from.
Everton vs Tottenham Preview
The season is reaching a critical point for both teams and Spurs in particular will be desperate to maintain their Champions League challenge, especially after losing 3-1 at home to Manchester United last week.
That made it eight defeats in the 12 games they have played against their fellow top-eight sides this season, conceding 21 times in those fixtures but also scoring 15 times, and it could be a similar case in this clash.
Indeed, Everton have mustered just five home wins all season and kept two clean sheets in those, but they have at least netted in 11 of their 15 outings at Goodison Park and the return of top scorer Calvert-Lewin after a week out should only aid their attacking cause.
Everton vs Tottenham Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score is offered at 7/10 (1.70) at bet365 and has landed in nine of Everton’s 15 home games this season, as well as in four of the six away matches Spurs have played against top-half teams.
