Tottenham vs Everton

Everton have now lost three games in a row following their FA Cup defeat by Liverpool, and won't relish the matchup with Tottenham. The Toffees last won away to Spurs in November 2008, and have endured a nine-match winless streak since, drawing three times and losing six.

Spurs are recovering from an autumn slump and have collected 16 points from their last seven EPL fixtures, a run second only to leaders Man City. They also scored 19 goals in that spell.

Spurs' Wembley curse has been lifted too as Harry Kane & Co. have cooked up a ten-match unbeaten run there.

Harry Kane has scored twice in each of his last two league appearances against Everton. He needs one goal to equal Teddy Sheringham's club record of 97 in the Premier League.

Son Heung-Min is also chasing a record, where he is attempting to become only the second Spurs player to score in five straight EPL home games.

Everton are likely to field new signing Cenk Tosun, a lively Turk attacker who has scored 38 goals in 71 games for Besiktas since the start of last season.

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks will sit out because of an ongoing ankle problem.

Defenders Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld remain unavailable but Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has no fresh injury concerns.

Defender Michael Keane is still sidelined because of a gashed foot, while midfielder Idrissa Gueye is ruled out with a hamstring problem.

Prediction: Tottenham 3-1 Everton
