Everton vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 23 December 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
A three-win streak pushed Tottenham two points adrift of Chelsea and just six shy of leaders Liverpool after 17 rounds of the competition in the Premier League. Can the Spurs keep the splendid run of form going on Sunday when they travel to Liverpool to take on Everton at Goodison?
Mauricio Pochettino’s troops struggled badly to break the deadlock last weekend at home against Burnley, but substitute Christian Eriksen eventually made it count bagging a much-important stoppage-time winner after Harry Kane’s delivery.
Kane was rested in mid-week’s League Cup quarter-final against Arsenal as he only came on as a sub to play the final half an hour of the affair. Spurs got the revenge for the recent league loss to arch-rivals in the North London derby as they dispatched Arsenal 0-2 at Emirates to make it to the semi-final of the competition.
The hosts will see their streak of tough fixtures continued here. They fell 3-1 away at Man City last weekend to make it four consecutive league games without a victory. The poor form saw Marco Silva’s men slide down to 8th in the league standings.
Everton were particularly easy to break down in recent matches. They drew 2-2 at home to Watford before losing 3-1 at Etihad. Such lack of meticulousness in Toffees’ back line will be the music to the ears of Harry Kane who is looking to add to his nine-goal tally in the league.
