|Date & Time||Sunday December 23, 2018, 1:00 PM (EST)|
The Line: Tottenham +130 / Draw +250 / Everton +225 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Everton are set to host Tottenham at Goodison Park for a match in the English Premier League.
Tottenham have been playing good football and they showed that as they beat Arsenal in the Football League Cup midweek. Son and Alli both scored for Tottenham as they eased past Arsenal away from home. Tottenham are now unbeaten for 5 matches and this run has included games against the likes of FC Barcelona. In their last Premier League outing, Tottenham beat Burnley. It was a tight win for Tottenham as they scored in injury time but the game seem under control as the team controlled over 70% of the ball while having 15 shots. Considering recent form, Tottenham will enter this game with the expectation of winning.
On the other side of the coin, Everton have failed to win in their last 4 fixtures. Last weekend, Everton was beaten by Manchester City. Everton never competed in the match as the Toffees only had 33% of the ball. The defence was very poor for Everton as the likes of Zouma, Keane and Mina struggled to control the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling. Tottenham will pose a similar threat for Everton so the defence will need to improve if the Toffees wish to compete in this game.
Tottenham won both times these two teams met last season. The match at Goodison Park ended in a 3-0 win for Tottenham while the Spurs won their home fixture against Everton with the scoreline of 4-0.
All in all, I am going to pick Tottenham to win this match. Everton enter this match in poor form and have had a very poor run against Tottenham in recent clashes. With their form looking very good. I see Tottenham getting all 3 points from this away fixture.
