Everton Braces for Tottenham Visit After Another Heartbreaking Overtime DefeatPublished January 3, 2016 by Florin P
Tottenham strives to close the narrow gap separating it from the leader with a victory over Everton (4:00 p.m UK Time).
Everton always finds a way of losing seemingly won games, despite having one of the best offensives in the Premier League. Their recent meltdown against Stoke makes matters worse for a team that hopes to secure a Europa League berth at the end of the season. They can’t afford to let their guard down in the second half against Tottenham, as the Londoners have a reputation for scoring most of the goals in the final minutes of the game.
Watch out for Half Time Results
Everton used to be one of the most reliable teams for those betting on them to lead or draw by halftime, but recently struggled to keep clean sheets. Tottenham is also known for starting the games at a slower pace, but over the last three games they came out firing on all cylinders. All these matches resulted in comfortable victories for them and the most impressive results were secured away from White Hart Lane.
Everton is not expected to make any changes to its starting formation and will still feature two strikers, while placing its hopes on Lukaku. He is their top scorer and a constant threat for any defensive in the English first division, but his offensive efforts made little impact recently.
Kane to Spearhead Tottenham's Offensive Again
The visitors have an ace in their sleeve as well, with Harry Kane scoring 11 goals this season, including some decisive late-match goals. These are the ones that Everton fears most, as plenty of points were squandered in the last minutes of regulation time and in overtime.
bet365 Sports offers even odds on Tottenham to win on the road and will refund the stakes if the match ends undecided. The draw no bet is probably the best choice, second only to the Over 2.5 goals to be scored bet.
