Tottenham face a tough trip to Everton on Saturday, but manager Mauricio Pochettino would be slightly relieved to see the attention shift away from his side’s terrible form at Wembley. Spurs have managed only four points from their opening three fixtures, and their only win of the season has come away from home. However, a trip to Goodison Park would be a daunting task for any side this season.
The Toffees were lacklustre in the 2-0 defeat at Chelsea and they would be looking forward to the home advantage on Saturday. Ahead of the game, Toffees manager Ronald Koeman also plans to hold talks with Wayne Rooney following his drunk-driving arrest. Rooney has scored both of Toffees’ goals this season, and any kind of disciplinary action could impact their chances on Saturday.
Spurs are without a win in their last two league fixtures, and they were held at 1-1 by Burnley in their last league fixture. The North London side are desperately looking for points, and this fixture promises to be an exciting encounter between two good sides.
Last season, the corresponding fixture ended in a 1-1 draw and the reverse fixture ended in a 3-2 win for Spurs.
