Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has given his opinion on what the result of the match between Everton and Tottenham Hotspur will be.
Both sides meet at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon in what is always a highly contested affair, with Spurs in recent years having enjoyed a good run of form on the Toffees own turf.
Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his players to continue the momentum following the impressive performance against Arsenal on Wednesday night.
However, they will face an Everton team with fresher legs considering that they have not played a match since last Saturday.
Marco Silva’s side are without a win in their last four games and they haven’t beaten Spurs in a Premier League game since 2012.
Owen, who now works as a football pundit believes that Tottenham’s recent impressive record against Everton will continue this weekend as they continue to try and put pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool.
He told BetVictor: “Everton are without a win in their last 11 league games against Spurs and I expect that trend to continue at Goodison on Sunday. The Blues are unbeaten in their last six home league games while Spurs have yet to draw in their previous 17 league games so far this term.
“Harry Kane has scored twice in his last three games against Everton and the England skipper may again be the difference in what promises to be a cracking last PL fixture before Christmas.
“Tip: Harry Kane to score first and Spurs to win 2-1.”
