Head-to-head

  • Tottenham are unbeaten in their past 13 league games against Everton (W7, D6), equalling their longest undefeated sequence against the Toffees in the top flight.
  • Everton last beat Spurs in December 2012, when Nikica Jelavic and Steven Pienaar scored late goals to earn a 2-1 victory.
  • The Toffees lost 6-2 to Spurs at Goodison Park last season and 3-0 the year before – they have never lost three consecutive top-flight home games against a particular opponent by at least a three-goal margin.
  • The last time Tottenham met Everton with both sides starting the day in the bottom half of the table was in April 2004, when David Moyes’ Everton beat David Pleat’s Spurs 3-1 at Goodison Park.

Everton

  • Everton have conceded 16 league goals this season, a tally exceeded only by the bottom three prior to the weekend.
  • They have lost five of their past six top-flight matches.
  • The Toffees have won seven of their last nine Premier League home games, and have kept clean sheets in seven of 10.
  • Everton are winless in all 21 Premier League matches under Marco Silva when they have conceded the opening goal, losing 18 of those games.
  • Theo Walcott netted in both games against Tottenham last season and has six league goals in total against them, his joint-highest figure versus a particular club.

Tottenham Hotspur

  • Spurs are winless in 11 Premier League away games (D2, L9).
  • Their most recent top-flight away victories came at Fulham and Cardiff in January, but their last win at a current Premier League club was December’s 6-2 thrashing of Everton.
  • Defeat would be Tottenham’s 19th league and cup loss (excluding shoot-outs) this calendar year, their most since 2008.
  • Their total of 12 points is their lowest at this stage of a league season since 2008.
  • Harry Kane has scored exactly two goals in each of his last four appearances versus Everton. He can become the first player to score two or more goals against a particular opponent in five consecutive Premier League matches.
