Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Goodison Park to play against Everton in the Premier League on Friday night. Both the English will be looking to give their hopes of finishing in the top four a boost. Tottenham is sitting seventh in the table, six points off the Champions League positions, while Everton occupies the eighth position, seven points behind fourth-placed West Ham United. The battle will kick off at 12:30 am on Saturday according to Indian Standard time. Here’s all you need to know about Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur lineup and prediction.
Everton vs. Tottenham Hotspur Lineup
Everton: Pickford; Holgate, Godfrey, Keane; Coleman, Allan, Davies, Sigurdsson, Digne; Richarlison, Rodriguez
Bernard, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Fabian Delph, and Abdoulaye Doucoure haven’t still recovered from an injury, and due to an adductor problem Yerry Mina will miss “a few weeks”.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin missed the match against Brighton due to an abductor injury, and the England international remains unavailable for selection, which means James Rodriguez could once again partner Richarlison in a front two.
Ancelotti will have to make a late check on Allan, but the Brazilian should return in the middle of the park, with Mason Holgate dropping back into defense as a replacement for Mina.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Rodon, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Sissoko; Lucas, Ndombele, Son; Kane
As for Spurs, full-backs Ben Davies and Matt Doherty are sidelined because of an injury, but the capital side did not suffer any fresh problems against Man United last time out.
Giovani Lo Celso and Eric Dier potentially will be dropped out of the starting XI.
Mourinho could decide to make changes on Friday with Toby Alderweireld and Moussa Sissoko in line for recalls.
While Lucas Moura should again get the nod in a forward area, Son and Harry Kane are certain starters in the final third with Gareth Bale likely to be on the bench once again.
The last Premier League meeting of the two teams was in November 2019 at Goodison Park, where they had a 1-1 tie. We expect the same result this time. A point will not improve their chances of finishing in the top four, but it’s difficult to tell them apart right now.
