Everton and Tottenham Hotspur face off in this week’s English Premier League key fixture at Goodison Park. This match is important for both sides in the context of the season. The hosts have lost some steam in the recent matches and will look to get back to winning ways. The visitors too will hope to keep their top-three hold intact.
Everton are eighth in the Premier League standings, before the start of the 18th round with 24 points (W6, D6, L5). However, their early season has nosedived a bit, and have just one win in their last six Premier League matches (W1, D3, L2). They have no wins in their last four matches (D2, L2) coming into this match.
Their only losses during these last six matches have come at the hands of Liverpool and Manchester City. They are still just two points behind the sixth-placed Manchester United and will look to make the most of their home form. Everton are unbeaten in six home fixtures (W4, D2) and have lost just one home game in the Premier League this season.
Tottenham start the round with 39 points and six points behind leaders Liverpool in the Premier League standings (W13, L4). They come into this fixture after a 2-0 win over Arsenal in the Carabao Cup, raising concerns over fatigue.
The Spurs, however, can be expected to rise to the occasion and bank on their superior away record to come back with full points in this trip. Tottenham have won six of their last seven Premier League away matches and should start as favourites.
If you are looking at Fantasy team selections, keep an eye on the injury list at Tottenham, which is quite big at the moment.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Richarlison has been one of the stand-out performers of the season for Everton and has scored four goals in his last four Premier League games at the Goodison Park. The Brazilian should be in your fantasy side, purely for the impact that his form brings!
Harry Kane has scored a brace in each of his last three Premier League matches against Everton. His consistency in front of the goal is a huge positive, provided he is the centre stage of your fantasy side.
Dele Alli had all the unwanted attention during the midweek Carabao Cup clash against Arsenal. He has three goals and three assists in his last eight appearances for Tottenham – backing him to score and having him in your fantasy side looks a prudent move!
