Spurs continue to wade
After clinching their first win in eight home attempts against West Ham last week, Tottenham fell to the ground with a blow on Thursday when they were beaten 3-1 at Sheffield United.
Even though VAR offered the Blades a hand when it turned down a Harry Kane equalizer in the first half, Sheffield United was the best team in the 90 minutes at Bramall Lane and fully deserved their victory.
The Spurs record can now be seen on a sad victory in nine games in all competitions, and after the final whistle, Jose Mourinho was his usual acerbic, spreading the blame to the left, right and center.
With toxicity levels on the rise, Tottenham, 9th, appears to have finished the 2019/20 season with a groan, and Everton may be ready to take advantage of his host’s many problems.
Everton eyeing the top half
Everton has scored consecutive wins in its last two Premier League outings against Norwich City (1-0) and Leicester City (2-1) – results that combined to propel the Toffees to 10th place and two points of Tottenham in front. of the team clash on Monday.
A goal from Richarlison and a free kick from Gylfi Sigurdsson allowed the Blues to carve out a close victory over the Foxes at Goodison Park – a place where Everton now has an eight-game unbeaten streak.
Far from Merseyside, things have not gone so well for Carlo Ancelotti’s men, although a comeback of three wins, two draws and three losses from their last eight away assignments indicates a slight recovery in fortunes by compared to their poor performance before Christmas.
Everton to avoid defeat?
With declining form and performance, whispers of dissatisfaction with their style of play that are starting to simmer, and Jose Mourinho singling out players for public criticism, Tottenham doesn’t seem in the best shape for Everton’s visit on Monday. .
The Spurs’ victory over West Ham on June 23, which was helped by a calamitous goal by Tomas Soucek, was their only home triumph in five attempts in all competitions, and their midweek humility at Sheffield United threw an unflattering light on the club. mounting problems.
After just three losses in 17 Premier League games, the Toffees were already playing with a degree of confidence, although successive victories against Norwich and Leicester in the past 10 days should provide them with a new dose of self-confidence.
Tottenham looked incredibly wobbly against the Blades on Thursday, and Everton Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison’s attack duo have the tools to make life very uncomfortable for Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez.
Given the fitness and host confidence issues, Everton has excellent value on the double chance market on Monday and deserves to be supported by the available prices, while our correct score prediction, which points to a win of 2-1 Toffees, is a selection for slightly more courageous bettors.
The Blues, who have scored two or more goals in five of their last eight Premier League outings, should find much joy against the Spurs’ increasingly fragile line after conceding at the other end of the sleeve in from 11 of their last 12 outside attempts. , a white sheet of Toffees seems unlikely.
Key Battle: Harry Kane vs. Michael Keane
England teammates Harry Kane and Michael Keane will face off for supremacy on Monday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in an individual duel that could have a major impact on procedures.
After a long layoff due to injury and a rusty restart, Kane regained his scoring touch with two goals in as many games for the Spurs, and Keane, who excelled under Ancelotti, will have to do his best to limit the impact from his fellow Three Lions.
Everton was on the wrong side before finishing Kane. The Tottenham talisman has scored eight huge goals against the Blues since 2017.
