Tottenham v Everton Fan Preview

The curtain comes down on a campaign of oscillations for Everton on Sunday, with a trip to Tottenham Hotspur. Given who Spurs are playing on June 1 in the Champions League final, there may be a lot of travelling Toffees hoping the lads in blue make Game 38 a non-contact type of clash too.

In all seriousness, the match is important for Everton, as Marco Silva will be seeking to cap off a spell of significant progress with an eye-catching win at one of the top six. And they should be confident of doing so.

The sensation watching Everton at Goodison Park on Friday against Burnley was that this is a really handy football team.

Expectations of an awkward and attritional evening were banished early on, as the Toffees swarmed over Burnley. The pressing, the incisive passing and the aggression was not indicative of a team reaching the end of a campaign; wear and tear was nowhere to be seen. Everton look fresh as they gear up for their summer break, a “I wouldn’t fancy playing them” type of outfit.

At Goodison Park, they’ve been flawless as of late. In addition to Burnley, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have scuttled home with their tails between their legs. Staggeringly, February 6 was the last time those of a blue persuasion watched their team concede at the Old Lady. It’s been a good place to watch football as of late.

Keeping that immaculate standard up in 2019-20 will be a challenge for Silva at Goodison Park. Although as talk begins to intensify over a possible top-six tilt next season, it’s away from home where this side has strides to make.

As of yet, the complete conviction in Silva’s blueprint hasn’t materialised on the road on a consistent basis. The result has been the skeleton of some decent away displays, albeit without the finishing touches needed to snatch the points. See the stalemate at Crystal Palace.

Despite their comeback on Wednesday, Everton should look at Spurs as a huge opportunity to set that right.

At times against Ajax, Tottenham were weary against a high-energy and inventive side, before game swung dramatically in the second half. After the fightback, the team’s physical and mental reserves are now surely at a season low.

Additionally, it’s likely to be a scratch XI for the hosts. Two of the heroes of Wednesday night are suspended and injured in Son Heung-min and Jan Vertonghen, respectively. Juan Foyth is also banned.

Everton should seize on any tired legs early on. All over the pitch, Tottenham players are unlikely to relish their battles, meaning it’s key the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Idrissa Gueye and Kurt Zouma impose themselves early on. An early goal and some early pressure may just make Spurs minds turn to Madrid in three weeks’ time.

Silva has a couple of decisions to make in regards to selection. Andre Gomes is back from suspension, although it would be harsh to drop Morgan Schneiderlin—Everton haven’t conceded in eight hours while he’s been on the pitch. Richarlison hasn’t been in full training this week due to injury either.

Everton can look to West Ham’s recent win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and can take parts of that blueprint to north London, most notably the way in which the Hammers sprung on the break when the home side did apply pressure in the second period and later.

But Everton are in better form than West Ham, have more quality than West Ham and should have the conviction to be authoritative in their approach early in the game. 

If they use the ball well, harass the Spurs players at the right times and take the chances that should come their way, a positive end to the campaign should be there for the taking.

Just don’t dive in too hard on Lucas, Son, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen though lads, yeah?
