Sun 3 Nov 2013 13:30 – Everton v Spurs (Goodison Park)

Referee: Kevin Friend

This is another match that promises to be a tough battle between two teams with top four aspirations. Everton have looked impressive under Roberto Matinez and have won 3 out of their 4 games at home while Spurs have travelled well this season and have won 3 out of 4 of their away games making this match a tough one to call. Everton have averaged 1.5 goals per home game and conceded an average of just 0.8. Spurs have averaged a goal a game away from home but have only conceded 0.3 per game making them one of the toughest away teams to beat. They have also won an average of 8 corners per away game and conceded an average of only 3. Everton are also tight at giving away corners having conceded an average of 4 per home game and winning 5.5. Tottenham should be expected to win the most corners in this game.

Everton continue with a long injury list including Kone, Heitinga, Vellios, Gibson and Alcaraz while Tottenham will be without Naughton and Chadli, who are both injured but they hope to welcome back the influential Andros Townsend to the squad. Both these teams have good form going into this game although the performances of Everton have attracted more positive attention. Tottenham have been effective, despite being criticised in some quarters for lacking some attacking flair, and have had their best ever start to a Premier League season. The statistics for this game point to a draw, and with both teams averaging at least a goal a game, the 1-1 score draw seems the most likely outcome.

Prediction: score draw Everton 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur
