This Saturday sees Spurs go head to head with Everton at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Kick-off 5:30pm GMT.

It’s third v twelfth in the League, as Spurs take on Everton on Saturday.

It’s 20 points so far for Tottenham Hotspur this season, going into this meeting

Having lost to Brighton & Hove Albion in their last game, Antonio Conte’s men must reset and try to gain a positive result in this match.

Also, Spurs keep finding ways to win, having secured six victories in their last nine games is astonishing this season, a rich vein of form that has drastically improved their Premier League position. With 20 points (6W, 1L and 2D), they are established in third position in the League having won six matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost one game.

Spurs have won four meetings of their four League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Tottenham Hotspur’s points to 23 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

Spurs will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (20). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Harry Kane (8), Heung Min Son (3), and Pierre Hojbjerg (2). Spurs have conceded 10 goals.

Spurs are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Antonio Conte is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without four of his key players.

Everton’s Premier League season, has so far seen them gain 10 points, going into this game

Whilst Everton need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for The Toffees after losing against Manchester United and Southampton would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Also, with four draws in seven fixtures, Everton need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With a twelfth position in the league and 2 wins, 3 losses and 4 draws, they currently have 10 points in the League having won two fixtures, drawn four meetings, and lost three matches.

Playing away from home, Everton have won one game, drawn two fixtures, and lost one game.

A win in this fixture, would take Everton’s points from 10 to 13, so far this season.

Everton’s squad will likely be depleted of six of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.
