Everton will travel to London on Monday to play Tottenham in the 28th round of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London)
Tottenham Hotspur have lost their last two home games.
As a manager, Antonio Conte has never conceded a Premier League (PL) goal against Everton (W3, D2).
Son Heung-min has been involved in ten goals in his last 11 PL appearances (G6, A4). But the South Korean hasn’t netted a PL H2H goal since 2018/19.
Everton have lost 13 of their last 17 league games (W2, D2).
The visitors are without a PL away win since August (D2, L8).
They have conceded 2+ goals in seven of their away games this season.
Head to head
Tottenham hold a superior record in this fixture as they have won 27 out of the 59 times both sides have met in the Premier League. Everton have just nine wins while 23 games ended in a draw.
Latest performances in all competitions
Tottenham will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome struggling Everton to London on Monday night.
The North London side have endured a terrible season so far due to a series of poor performances and unfortunate events.
After crashing out of Europe and losing the Carabao Cup semi-final to Chelsea, they were hoping to end their wait for a trophy by winning the FA Cup. But their hopes were trashed last week Tuesday when they were beaten 1-0 by Chris Wilder’s Middlesbrough side, in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Under manager Antonio Conte, they are expected to do big things. But things have not gone as planned and Spurs come into this tie with four losses from their last six games in all competitions (W2).
Ahead of this weekend’s round of games, they are sitting in seventh place, five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United. This game is another opportunity for them to claim a valuable three points against Everton if they’re to keep their UEFA Champions League qualification hopes alive.
But the hosts have lost their last two home league games. One more such defeat would spell the first time in his managerial career that Conte has lost three successive home league outings.
Given he never conceded a Premier League (PL) goal against Everton when he was Chelsea manager (W3, D2), he will fancy his side’s chances of getting a good result here.
Possible Tottenham starting line-up
Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ryan Sessegnon; Lucas Moura, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son.
Injured: Oliver Skipp
Doubtful: Japhet Tanganga
Unlike their hosts, Everton avoided an embarrassment in the FA Cup as they comfortably beat non-league side Boreham Wood on Thursday.
A brace from Salomon Rondon settled the game and helped the Toffees secure back-to-back FA Cup quarter-final appearances.
After settling that, they will now turn their attention to the Premier League, where their survival destiny is currently at stake.
Frank Lampard‘s side are sitting precariously close to the relegation zone after winning just 22 points from 24 games. They were in danger of ending the week in the relegation zone, but Burnley’s loss to Chelsea in their game on Saturday means they will end just above the drop zone, no matter the result here.
However, they will not only want to finish above the relegation zone but gain maximum points that will push them further up the table.
But to do so, they will have to improve on their away form which has seen them fail to win a PL away game since August (D2, L8), conceding 2+ goals in over half of those games (seven).
Given that they have won just one of the last 18 PL head-to-head meetings with Spurs (D9, L8), they will have to give their best performance to get a good result here.
Possible Everton starting line-up
Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Mason Holgate, Michael Keane, Jonjoe Kenny; Allan, Andre Gomes, Alex Iwobi, Donny van de Beek; Demarai Gray, Richarlison.
Injured: Tom Davies, Yerry Mina
Doubtful: Ben Godfrey, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Fabian Delph, Vitaly Mykolenko
Tottenham 2-2 Everton
