Match Preview: Spurs Vs Everton


Tottenham are optimistic that Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen will both be available despite suffering minor problems against Stoke.

Toby Alderweireld, who injured his groin last weekend, faces a late fitness test, but Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are still ruled out.

Everton could name the same team which began their last two games.

Long-term absentee Muhamed Besic is back in training but is not yet ready for first-team action.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin could be in contention after two months out with an ankle injury.


Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino on being linked with Barcelona: “I was born with a ball in my arms and I understand very well the business. I don’t take it like a flattering or a prize.

“We are in the biggest clubs in Europe. For me Tottenham is one of the biggest clubs. We are in a position where you can see we play very good football, exciting team, very good players.

“It’s normal we catch the attention of other clubs and football people. We are part of that business and our names always appear on the lists.”

Everton manager Ronald Koeman: “I follow football. I follow managers, teams, how they play. In several aspects, Tottenham play how we would like to do.

“They try to do high pressing, they have individually very good players between the lines like [Christan] Eriksen, [Dele] Alli and others. They have offensive full-backs, like we do.

“And they are trying to bring young players through the team, like we would like to do at Everton.”
