Two top-four hopefuls go head-to-head in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as Everton welcome Tottenham to Goodison Park. Both sides have been playing some decent football of late and there is little to separate the two teams in the latest betting, with Everton starting favourites despite specialising in draws in recent matches.
The Toffees have drawn seven of their last nine league outings and another stalemate can be backed at 9/4 with Ladbrokes, although Everton are a best price 11/10. Tottenham head into the match as a 5/2 chance after they booked their place in the last-32 of the Europa League on Thursday night and the games are coming thick and fast for them.
Only three points separate these two teams in the upper reaches of the league table but Everton boss David Moyes will be frustrated with his side's inability to convert good performances into wins. Their seven draws in their last nine outings is testament to their inability to finish teams off and their last three games have all finished 1-1, with Ladbrokes going a best price 13/2 for the same scoreline again this week.
Everton took a creditable point from their visit to Manchester City last time out as Marouane Fellaini scored his fifth goal in five games to take his tally to eight for the season and he is a tempting 7/1 to score first in this Everton v Tottenham clash. Everton have tended to strike early in games as they have scored a league-high 68% of their goals in the first half of games, as well as six goals in the opening 15 minutes of matches.
In stark contrast Tottenham are yet to score in the opening 15 minutes of a league game but they are a tempting 9/2 to come from behind and win or draw in this match. The fixtures are beginning to pile up for Spurs as they were in Europa League action on Thursday night, beating Panathinaikos 3-1, and Andre Villas-Boas faces something of a selection dilemma.
Injuries mean Villas-Boas is unable to rotate his squad as he would like and he is likely to be without the injured Scott Parker, Younes Kaboul, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Gareth Bale this weekend. His team are still getting results and they are on a four-match winning run heading to Goodison Park, although winning at Everton will be a big ask and Spurs wouldn't be too unhappy with a point at this stage.
Tottenham's Jermain Defoe has been in fine scoring form with five goals in his last four games and he is 6/1 to be first goalscorer. Defoe and co. will fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet against Everton as the Toffees' last 11 league games have seen both teams score and both teams to score again is an 8/13 odds on punt in the latest betting with Ladbrokes.
