Tottenham Hotspur travel to Merseyside tomorrow afternoon to take on Everton in the Premier League with Mauricio Pochettino insisting that his side will be in for a tough game.

The Toffees are currently without a win in their last four matches under boss Marco Silva, who took over at Goodison Park in the summer with Pochettino citing the fact that new managers need to be given time at their new surroundings.

Tottenham have won eight of their 10 away Premier League games this season, already more than they’d won in 20 of their previous 26 completed seasons in the competition.

Spurs will be without five players for the match which includes Jan Vertonghen (thigh), Victor Wanyama (knee), Mousa Dembele (ankle), Serge Aurier (groin) and Eric Dier (appendicitis).


Everton are winless in their last 11 Premier League matches against Tottenham Hotspur and fans will be hoping this record continues as they look to keep the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City above them.

Pochettino told BT Sport when asked about tomorrow’s opposition: “Everton have a lot of quality players, a great squad, and Marco Silva’s doing a fantastic job. He’s a very good coach.

“Of course, it’s always important when you arrive at a new club, you need time.

“They are doing a good job and they have very good players. It will be tough to play Everton at Goodison Park.”
