Everton are playing at home on Goodison Park in search of their first win in December. Marcos Silva’s experiment against Manchester City last weekend did not work, and The Toffees lost with 3-1. The coach from Portugal decided to use the formation 4-5-1 instead of the most used from the team – 4-4-1-1 which was far more successful against Chelsea and Liverpool.
The injured midfielders of Tottenham will force Mauricio Pochettino again to use Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks in the centre of the pitch. Both have played against Arsenal for EFL Cup over the week and will have accumulated fatigue that will inevitably affect their performance on Sunday. The Spurs are the best away team this season in the Premier League and have just two defeats in ten games as visitors.
Everton are playing aggressively, and the challenge for Tottenham will be massive. It’s expected that Idrissa Gueye will come back from his injury which will make harder the moving of the ball from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli. Marcos Silva has undoubtedly taken his lesson from the game against Manchester City and will return the team’s style of playing against Chelsea and Liverpool. I will back Under 2.5 Goals, with Draw 0-0 Correct Score.
