Confirmed: Everton and Tottenham line-ups

Fans at Goodison Park

Here is how Everton and Tottenham Hotspur will line up this weekend:

Everton welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Goodison Park this weekend with Roberto Martinez’s men looking to climb up the table with a new year upon us.

The Toffees have had a hit-and-miss time in recent months, struggling to turn draws into wins, and with two defeats in their last three matches the time is right for them to turn things around.

That will be easier said than done against a Tottenham side that currently sits fourth in the Premier League and continues to impress under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Everton are currently 11th in the table with 26 points while Tottenham are nine points better off and would move to within a point of Manchester City with a victory this weekend.

Two in-form strikers go head-to-head in the form of Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane and either one could ultimately decide the outcome of this encounter.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last six matches against Everton but this one really could go either way.
