Only goal difference separates these two sides as ninth takes on tenth, both on 17 points, as they look set to battle it out and go a step closer to a top four finish.

Everton will hope to continue an unbeaten run of five games while Tottenham will be looking to build on their last-minute victory over Hull last weekend.

Everton’s joint-top goalscorers this season Romelu Lukaku and Steven Naismith, currently on five goals, will look to continue to add to that tally against a Spurs defence who haven’t kept a clean sheet in five games.

Another must win game for both side but added pressure rests on the shoulders of Maurchio Pochettino as rumours over his future continues to build.
