Premier League: Tottenham Hotspur v Everton match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at White Hart Lane
Friday 07 February 2014
Tottenham welcome Everton to White Hart Lane in what is a significant fixture in the race for Champions League qualifications. The home side have been in good form since Tim Sherwood took over as manager from Andre Villas-Boas in December. Spurs have managed 17 points from a possible 24 points in their last eight Premier League games and are currently one point behind opponents Everton in fifth and three points behind Liverpool in fourth.
Everton did well to pick themselves up to beat Aston Villa on Saturday after their 4-0 loss to Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby. The Toffees, without the injured Romelu Lukaku, came from behind to secure three vital points. Kevin Mirallas scored Everton's winner with an excellent free-kick and he will again be the danger man for Roberto Martinez' side.
