Everton v Tottenham predicted lineups and match preview

Fans at Goodison Park

Here is how we predict Everton and Tottenham Hotspur will line up on Saturday afternoon:

To be played on Saturday 13th August 2016 at 16:00. Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool

Odds: Everton 15/8, Draw 23/10, Tottenham 6/4

Everton host Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday as the new Premier League season kicks off.

It is Toffees boss Ronaldo Koeman's first competitive match in charge, and he will be eager to get off to a fine start against a Spurs side who may still be smarting from their poor finish to last season.

However, Mauricio Pochettino's men have looked impressive in preseason, and have brought in key squad additions in Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen, the former of which is expected to start. Spurs should include Jan Vertonghen after the Argentine revealed the defender had recovered from an ankle injury received in the summer.

Everton have been active in the transfer market this week, but new signing Ashley Williams is set to miss out after beginning preseason training later than his new teammates following Wales' march to the Euros semi-finals.
