Current form — Everton v. Tottenham
Everton continue to flounder
Everton go into this encounter hoping to turn a page, as performances in recent matches have been pretty scrappy. Everton have had to endure a tough spell in their last 3 matches, from which, they have nothing to show. They were beaten 1-0 by West Ham, before Watford ran out 5-2 winners. A third defeat on the trot followed against Wolves, who came out 2-1 winners.
Tottenham looking for more.
Results have been pretty much up to scratch in recent matches for The Lilywhites, who have performed more or less according to expectations. Tottenham are a bit back and forth at the moment, but at least mostly forth, as they beat Burnley by 0-1. Following that up proved too difficult as they lost 0-3 against Manchester United, before claiming 3 points in a 3-2 win against Vitesse.
It has the look of an equal match up in theory, Tottenham, however, still represent slightly better value in our opinion than Everton. Bookies have a home win priced at 3.00, while paying out odds 2.40 for the away win. Should they split the point, it pays out at 3.25 with the bookmakers.
