Ryan Mason explains why he's confident heading into this weekend's match

The Tottenham graduate has looked at the side's ability to find the net as a positive ahead of this weekend's home game against Everton.

Ryan Mason has been talking to the Spurs website about the disappointment of the last couple of results for the London side, which has seen them take leads before being pegged back to a draw.

Though the home fixture against Stoke was unusual given that the Potters drew level in the latter stages of the match after being 2-0 down, arguably, Mauricio Pochettino and his players will be more disappointed at the manner of their equaliser at Leicester on Saturday.

In what was a tight match, Dele Alli came off the bench to score his first goal for the club late on, seemingly making the breakthrough and ensuring three points would be heading back to White Hart Lane. Unfortunately for Tottenham, Riyad Mahrez, cut in from the right and fired in an equaliser from the kick off to earn the Foxes a 1-1 draw.

Mason, however, could see the positives in both matches when he spoke to the club's site.

“You can’t say we’re not scoring goals because in our last home game against Stoke we got two and then at Leicester we scored again,” Mason told the Tottenham website.

“It’s just about being a bit stronger when we take the lead and seeing out games.

“We’re confident ahead of Everton now – we always are. Although we’ve let two leads slip in the last two games, we firmly believe that if we take the lead we’ll keep it next Saturday.”

Spurs will be buoyed by their performance against the Toffees in the final game of last season, where Harry Kane gave Tottenham a 1-0 victory and Pochettino ensured his side put in an excellent performance.

This weekend's home match will be the final game before the transfer window shuts, so any problems in the Spurs side will likely be identified and acted on by the club, at least that is what supporters will be hoping if they once more fail to get the win.
