PREVIEW: Spurs v Everton
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he late kick off in the Premier League is at White Hart Lane for Spurs v Everton – two teams who have been involved in Europa League action this week and both securing their route through to the last 32.
However, the European action could well be catching up with both sides. Spurs are likely to be without Younes Kaboul, Emmanuel Adebayor, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli, Andros Townsend and Danny Rose through injury.
For Everton they will need to assess midfielder James McCarthy’s hamstring injury, while John Stones, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo are definitely out with injury.
The early money has come in for Spurs who have a good home record against Everton and are now unbeaten against the Toffees in their last six encounters.
The two sides are neighbours in the Premier League table on 17 points but the momentum is with Everton who are now unbeaten in their last eight matches across all competitions.
Spurs have not performed well at home this season – winning only two of their last six games and losing the other four.
