Tottenham vs Everton
MON 6th JULY 2020 – KO 8:00pm
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
Spurs host Everton on Monday night, with both sides looking to push for European football next season.
Mourinho’s side comes into this one off the back of a 3-1 battering from Sheffield United. Spur were taken apart by Chris Wilders side at Bramall Lane and their goal was a consolation one right at the end. This result meant Spurs have won just one in their last six. Their last Premier League win came on 16th February away to Spurs.
Mourinho though will have made it aware to his players how important it is to bounce back. Last season they played in the Champions League final and this year they are fighting just to get in the Europa League. Spurs are currently 10th in the league, three points behind a Europa League spot.
Spurs have more than enough quality in their squad to win this game and get in the Europa League, it just depends which Spurs turns up.
Since the restart, The Toffees have been in fantastic form. A draw with Liverpool and wins against Norwich and Leicester. These are promising signs for Ancelotti but his side needs to kick on from here and try and get a run of games going.
Everton are currently in 11th place in the Premier League just one point behind Spurs. Europa League was out of the question before the league restarted, however, their good form and some good results elsewhere has given them an outside chance. Tonight is very important for them and a loss would hurt their chances.
Everton have some quality in their squad but still need to add some more. With an experienced manager in Ancelotti though he can help make the difference for now.
Spurs go into this one with a fully fit squad and no suspensions. This will be very encouraging for Mourinho who knows on paper, Spurs have a much better team.
Tosun and Gbamin are still out injured but no one else has joined them since the restart. Everton also has no one suspended.
