Everton Preview: Missing Players
Everton enter this match without five first-team players in Lucas Digne, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Andre Gomes, Yerry Mina, and Abdoulaye Doucoure. And that is quite concerning, leaving the Toffees with massive gaps on both ends of the pitch.
On a more positive note, the hosts welcomed their free-scoring forward, Richarlison, who returned on Monday and should be fit and ready for Sunday’s clash. But unfortunately, that might not be enough for Everton to get back to the winning ways.
The hosts have not been in good form at all, and while they have had a decent start under Rafael Benitez, the Toffees have recently suffered three defeats, including a 2-5 loss against the newly-promoted Watford. It goes without saying that such results won’t cut if Everton wishes to compete at the highest level.
Everton are 1-1-3 across their last five across all competitions with a win against Norwich (2-0), a draw against Manchester United (1-1), and three back-to-back losses against Wes Ham (0-1), Watford (2-5), and Wolves (1-2).
Tottenham Preview: Conte Takes Over
Everton would have been happy about this match a week back, knowing that they would clash with the struggling Tottenham. It would have been a perfect match for Toffees to get back on track; however, things have changed with Antonio Conte arriving at the helm of Spurs.
Although adding a new coach might not seem like much, the new manager effect can be very effective, especially in a talented team that is underperforming.
We have yet to see Tottenham in action in the EPL with the Italian in charge, but we can be sure that Conte will want to start his stay with the English side with a win. From there, he will need to work on helping the Spurs improve upon their showings on the season, having managed only 15 points from 10 games, which is good for a ninth-place in the standings.
Tottenham are 2-0-3 across their last five in all competitions, with wins against Burnley (1-0) and Vitesse (3-2) and losses against Vitesse (0-1), West Ham (0-1), and Manchester United (0-3).
Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This Soccer Game
Tottenham and Everton have met 176 times before this weekend, and their results have been fairly even. Tottenham leads with 66 wins, while Everton collected 55, whereas 55 games ended in a draw.
Tottenham enter this match as the favorites at +140; Everton are priced at +200, while you can bet on a draw at +200. The odds make sense, mainly because Conte’s 3-5-2 is well suited for Tottenham and a perfect formation to exploit Everton’s weaknesses.
Benitez’s reactive counter-attacking strategy is a bit outdated, and his conservative approach won’t help Everton as they clash with a more energetic opponent such as the Spurs. This match is a perfect opportunity for Tottenham to get back on track, and they have all the tools needed to pick up all three points.
