Everton come into this weekend’s fixture occupying 10th place in the league, and will be keen to ensure that they finish in the top half of the league. Whilst ninth placed Stoke sit four points above them in the league, a pack of clubs are chasing the Toffees down, so they will be keen to make it two wins on the trot to secure 10th spot.

Everton will be looking for a big performance from their centre back and skipper, Phil Jagielka. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has won 47 tackles so far this season, 77% of his overall attempts. He has also racked up 376 clearances, 51 interceptions and 35 blocks so far this season, and adding to his four goals for the season would be an ideal way to round off the campaign.

In the middle of the park, Leon Osman had a fantastic game last weekend. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he hit the target with two of his three shots, finding the net once. He also won one tackle, made one clearance, made one interception, completed one dribble, and completed 45 passes; 81.8% of his attempts. If he is in similar form this weekend, he could be key to an Everton victory.

Up top, Romelu Lukaku has fully enjoyed his first season as a permanent Everton player. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has worked hard all year round for the team, winning 42 tackles, 54.5% of his overall attempts. His direct style of play will trouble any opposition defence, completing 45 dribbles so far this season, and he will hope to add to his six assists and 10 goals for the season so far.

Tottenham will be looking for a strong finish to the league, and they are also going in search of their second win on the bounce. Spurs currently lie in sixth place in the league but a win this weekend could potentially see them finish in fifth if results go their way.

Spurs will be looking for a big performance from their France international shot stopper, Hugo Lloris, this weekend. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has racked up 106 saves so far this season, at an average of 2.04 saves per goal conceded. He will be looking for a clean sheet to round off another fine season between the sticks for Tottenham.

One of Tottenham’s best performers this season has arguably been Denmark international, Christian Eriksen. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has completed 1,104 passes in the opposition area, made 24 interceptions and holds four assists to his name. He has also netted 10 times so far this season, and will hope that he has one more goal in the locker to round off the season.

Nacer Chadli, who has also had a fine season in the white strip of Tottenham, will support him in midfield. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that last weekend he converted his only shot on goal, as well as making a clearance and two interceptions. He also completed 29 passes, 85.3% of his overall attempts, and will be hoping for a repeat performance this weekend to round off the season in style.
