Everton will be looking to drag themselves out of the Premier League relegation zone this weekend when they take on Spurs at Goodison Park. The Toffees have seen lots of results go against them from the clubs below them which has seen them sink below the dreaded dotted line in the league table. Meanwhile, Spurs came from behind to overcome Brentford in a tense London derby midweek, securing their place in the top 4.
Everton are without a win in their last five Premier League matches. They managed to pick up a point in their encounters with Aston Villa and Fulham, both ending in stalemates, after a string of three consecutive defeats. Success at Goodison this season has been sporadic, registering only three wins from 11 home outings so far this season, being handed six defeats. Although, they have shown their strength in staying in the contest for the full 90.
Spurs moved within just three points of Arsenal and Man City after Ange Postecoglou’s boys picked up five wins from their last seven league outings, after previously enduring four league defeats in five games. Their victory over Brentford sported an unpredicted combination of football, darts and the UFC, so the Lilywhites will be hoping for a smoother turnout here.

⚽ Match stats: Spurs are flying at the moment
Everton are enduring another tough run of form after seemingly turning things around following their 10-point deduction. Despite all of their continued efforts in front of goal, they have scored only two goals in their last six games, and if it wasn’t for some decent defensive performances, they’d be even worse off.
With only one win in their last nine games, their difficulties in scoring has directly translated to their downfall which has seen them re-enter the relegation zone. They face a Spurs side that are showing great attacking threat, scoring eight goals across their last three league outings, as well as boasting the incredible record of being the only team to score in all of their league matches this season – a very worrying feat for Everton.
James Maddison returned to the starting XI in midweek which was a huge bonus for Spurs, especially in the continued absence of Heung-min Son, and shutting him out of this game will be a tall order. Spurs fought fire with fire effectively on Wednesday night but it certainly wasn’t without the expense of their defence. They’re certainly not the most reliable defensive side, combined with Postecoglou’s demand for attacking football, but with their hosts finding it so difficult to score in recent weeks, it’s difficult to see them not getting a result here.
Speaking of goals, another selection for Saturday’s clash that definitely represents value is for Spurs to score at least two goals. This bet would have paid out in a league-high 17 of Spurs’ 22 league games this season and is priced very strongly for this match.
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last six meetings against the hosts and recorded a 2-1 home win in the reverse fixture in December. The Toffees have also failed to score in three of their last five league meetings against Spurs while conceding 10 times in that period – some worrying omens for Sean Dyche. We expect Spurs to pick up the victory here once more.
⚽ Tottenham to win @ 2.25
⚽ Over 1.5 Tottenham goals @ 1.91
🎯 Shooting stats: Richarlison to haunt his former club (again)
Richarlison has been the highlight in the Spurs attack over recent weeks, boasting impressive scoring form with 7 goals in 9 appearances. Facing his former side will no doubt add some more fuel to his ever-burning fire.
Richarlison loves peppering his opponents’ goal, averaging an impressive 3.69 shots on goal per 90 minutes, the most shots in the Spurs squad. This includes picking up four shots against Brentford midweek, with two hitting the target and grabbing a goal.
Richarlison averages a strong 1.48 shots on target per 90 and has shown great consistency in recent weeks in this market. The Brazilian has hit the target at least once in four of his last five, picking up seven shots on target in that time. This form extends out to hitting the target in eight of his last 10 outings for Spurs – some very promising numbers. He did score in the return fixture back in December and it wouldn’t be a shock if that was repeated here.
The whole Spurs team loves to get involved in the shooting department, which once again looks like a strong approach here. Spurs are averaging 16.1 attempts per 90 this season, with 5.77 hitting the target, and their recent form fits in perfectly with these averages.
The Lilywhites have had 16+ shots in four of their last six matches – including a shock abnormality of one shot against Man City in the FA Cup. On three of those four occasions, they have registered at least five shots on target. This extends out to eight of their last 10 outings across all competitions where they have registered 5+ shots on target. Everton have conceded at least four shots on target in seven of their last eight games and concede an average of 14 shots per 90.
⚽ Richarlison to have 1+ shots on target @ 1.40
⚽ Tottenham to have 16+ shots @ 2.0
⚽ Tottenham to have 6+ shots on target @ 2.30
🚩 Corners stats: Plenty of set piece opportunities for both teams
Corners totals looks strong market to target in this matchup, with both sides showing their ability to rack up set pieces.
Firstly, Spurs games are averaging a league-high average of 12.32 total corners per match with an impressive 68% of their games this season seeing at least 11 corners taken, rising up to 73% for nine corners taken. This total corner average is split fairly evenly between for and against, but slightly favours the opponents taking the most corners, 5.68 v 6.64.
Spurs’ vulnerability for conceding corners gives added value to the total corners markets. Everton also possess a strong total corner average, which sits just shy of Spurs at 10.73 – but similarly, Everton also concede more corners than they take.
A strong 68% of Everton’s matches this season have seen at least nine corners, a great partnership with the Spurs stats for the same total. The reverse fixture saw 11 total corners, a total that has landed in four of Spurs’ last five games and landed in five of Everton’s last seven.
A corner match bet would be tough to select with the stats for each side showing lots of similarities, but with Spurs proving to be such a strong attacking force at the moment, relentless in their attacking efforts, they may edge out Everton on Saturday.
⚽ Over 4.5 Tottenham corners @ 1.60
⚽ Over 9.5 total corners @ 1.45
⚽ Over 10.5 total corners @ 1.80
🛑 Fouls stats: Gueye to get into trouble
With Idrissa Gueye returning from the Africa Cup of Nations and available for selection on Saturday, it’s likely the Everton midfielder will be quick to get back to his old ways in the fouling department.
The Senegalese international is averaging 1.88 fouls per 90 in the top-flight this term, clocking up at least one foul in six consecutive league appearances, extending out to 8 consecutive games across all competitions. In this time, he has totalled 16 fouls, putting him just ahead of his seasonal average.
Having spent the last three weeks at AFCON, Gueye could be vulnerable in readapting to the pace and intensity of the Premier League and could be caught slacking on a couple of occasions against such a trickster-full Spurs side. Facing up against the likes of James Maddison, Richarlison and Brennan Johnson who draw an average of 3.15, 1.80 and 1.57 fouls per 90 – he could certainly have his hands full.
Pedro Porro has been vital to the attacking motions of this Spurs team recently and consequently has been on the receiving end of some late tackles.
The Spaniard is only averaging 0.95 fouls drawn per 90 so far this season but has been fouled at least once in four consecutive outings for Spurs, drawing a total of 6 fouls. Porro’s involvement in Spurs’ attacking play is seemingly getting greater and greater each week and with some key foulers in this Everton side, he could find himself on the receiving end once again.
A strongly priced selection given Porro’s current form, he’ll face up against James Garner, Jarrad Branthwaite and Vitaliy Mykolenko who average 1.06, 1.05 and 0.94 fouls per 90.
⚽ Idrissa Gueye to commit 1+ fouls @ 1.20
⚽ Idrissa Gueye to commit 2+ fouls @ 2.0
⚽ Pedro Porro to be fouled 1+ times @ 1.50
