The way things are, Tottenham are Chelsea’s nearest challengers in the Premier League, however, Mauricio Pochettino’s side is 10 points behind the Blues and are not safe from the top four position in the table.
The Spurs have five points more than Manchester United and have played one game more than Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal so they have to be careful against Everton as they could easily slip into fifth or sixth place in case of a bad result.
- The Spurs are unbeaten in eight Premier League games against Everton (W3 D5) since a 2-1 defeat at Goodison Park in December 2012.
- The Toffees have only won three of 24 away Premier League games at White Hart Lane (D7 L14), with all three wins coming consecutively between 2006 and 2008.
- Tottenham Hotspur is the only unbeaten side at home in the Premier League this season, winning 11 of 13 fixtures (W11 D2 L0).
- If Spurs were to win here, they would set a new home Premier League club record for successive wins at White Hart Lane (9).
- If Everton (44 points) win this match then they will have equalled their total points tally from the last two seasons (47 in both 2014/15 and 2015/16).
- Since the start of 2014-15, Harry Kane has scored more Premier League goals than any other player (63), while Romelu Lukaku has the fifth-most (45).
Tottenham: Dier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen; Walker, Dembele, Wanyama, Davies; Alli, Eriksen; Kane.
Everton: Robles; Coleman, Williams, Funes Mori, Baines; Gueye, Schneiderlin, Davies; Mirallas, Lukaku, Barkley.
