Everton vs Tottenham (Spurs) takes place in the English Premier League on Sunday in what should be an exciting clash between two attack-minded teams. The game is scheduled to kick off at 10 a.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Spurs have gone on a good run of form lately and have moved up to fourth place in the Premier League table. They have 26 points from their 15 games so far and a win today would see them move level on points with third placed Chelsea.
Meanwhile Everton are just behind Tottenham, in seventh place. Although three places below Spurs, they are just three points behind and with a superior goal difference. That means a win today would see Everton leapfrog Spurs into fourth place on goal difference.
Everton manager David Moyes could have Kevin Mirallas and Seamus Coleman back and available for selection, although their fitness will have to be assessed close to game time.
For Spurs, both Gareth Bale and Michael Dawson look likely to miss the game – both out with hamstring injuries.
As the half way point in the season approaches a lot of talk has been made that fourth place (and possibly third place) are both up for grabs this year. With just seven points separating third placed Chelsea from 11th placed Norwich a good run of form for any of those teams could see them move up the table very quickly.
Everton have lost just two of their past 24 EPL matches, however, in recent weeks fans have been frustrated they have not been able to convert good performances into wins – claiming too many draws.
Spurs are not good on the road against Everton, and in their last five matches at Goodison Park they have failed to win - a run stretching back to 2007. Meanwhile, the early part of the game could be crucial to the outcome; Everton have conceded more goals in the opening 15 minutes of EPL games this season than anyone, with six conceded early on so far. In comparison Spurs have conceded the lowest in the league in the opening 15 minutes – zero.
