Tottenham Hotspur round off their Premier League season with the visit of Everton to the new stadium tomorrow afternoon.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has shared his prediction ahead of the match.  At least a draw for Tottenham will guarantee them a top-four finish for the fourth consecutive Premier League season; it will be their best such run in the top flight since a run of five between 1959-60 and 1963-64.

Mauricio Pochettino is not the only manager who has injury issues, Everton could be without a trio of key players for the clash.

Toffees boss Marco Silva confirmed that Richarlison will definitely be out of the trip to north London this weekend with a rib injury, which forced him out of the game against Brighton, while Seamus Coleman is also a doubt (Liverpool Echo).  They are also without  Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Andre Gomes.

Merson believes that Spurs will cap off the league campaign with a win.

He told Sky Sports: “You’re playing against a good Everton team here, who have turned a corner but they were getting beaten at Newcastle and Fulham a few weeks ago. The players probably won’t be thinking of this game but you want to get third. I think Tottenham will sneak it, but Everton aren’t as good on the road as they have been at home so I think Spurs will sneak it.

“Prediction: 2-1.”
