Neither Tottenham Hotspur nor Everton can be proud of their results in this term of Premier League as none of the teams has met the expectations. The Toffees made huge investments before the start of the season, but these have not paid off at all since they are currently miles away from the battle for the European positions.
Everton will travel to the capital on the back of three consecutive defeats in all competitions and ending such a poor streak will be a massive challenge for them against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur. The hosts seemed to have started a new positive run with three consecutive wins in the Premier League, but they were denied in their first action in 2018 playing only a 1-1 draw with West Ham United at home.
Men of Mauricio Pochettino are still, however, within the striking distance to the fourth-placed Liverpool, but a win here is an imperative for them if they want to keep ground on the Reds in the battle for the top four spots. The Sours struggled a lot to break the deadlock against the League One outfit AFC Wimbledon on Sunday, but Harry Kane managed to net a brace and lead his team to a commanding 3-0 win at the end.
Kane has been just phenomenal so far in the season. The English striker currently tops the league goalscorers list with 18 goals to his name and he is expected to keep the hot run of form going this Saturday against the Toffees.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton: Head-to-head
The Spurs lead the head to head tie by 12 wins coming into their 161 encounter with Everton.
Tottenham notched three goals in each of last two clashes with the Toffees; including a demolishing 0-3 victory in mid-September last year at Goodison (Harry Kane bagged a brace back then).
Everton are winless in last ten meetings with the Spurs.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton: Prediction
The hosts are massive favourites just as the odds suggest. They have the imperative here and we doubt they will afford another failure in front of the home fans.
We believe this will be a one-sided affair from the very first whistle and we will back the Spurs to have the lead at the half time and to win the match at the end.
Also Harry Kane is well worth backing to net a brace at the odds of 2.70 considering his amazing spell of form as of late.
