In a sentence: Facing Tottenham at Wembley is hardly the ideal fixture for Everton, as the Toffees have gone five games without a win.

Last time: A Harry Kane brace either side of a strike from Christian Eriksen helped Spurs to a 3-0 victory at Goodison Park in September. That game extended Tottenham’s unbeaten run against Everton to 10 games, with five wins and five draws in that period.

This time: Tottenham are 3/10 for the win, while Everton are 13/1 and the draw is 11/2.

You might remember: A stunning comeback from the Toffees just over five years ago, the last time the Merseysiders beat Spurs. Clint Dempsey put Tottenham ahead with 15 minutes to go, but a last minute equaliser from Steven Pienaar was followed by an injury time winner from Nikica Jelavic.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Dele Alli will be one of Tottenham’s main goal threats against Everton

Tottenham continue their assault on the top four against an Everton side that could use a confidence boost at Wembley. The honeymoon period appears to be over for Allardyce, but the Toffees should be up for this game after losing in the FA Cup against rivals Liverpool.

Tottenham are 3/10 to secure all three points, as they look to put their own derby disappointment behind them after drawing at home against West Ham in their last Premier League outing. Spurs struggled to break down a well-organised Hammers defence, and after going behind to a breath-taking Pedro Obiang strike, they needed their own stunner from Son Heung-min to rescue a point.

Everton are 13/1 for the win, and likely to put in as dogged a defensive display as West Ham did. Allardyce will surely surrender possession in the same manner as David Moyes, so the Toffees need to take their chances if they want to have any chance of success. Either that or a wonder goal would do for the travelling supporters. Candidates for that would include Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who are 16/1 and 11/1 respectively to score from outside the penalty area.

The draw is 11/2 and would be the fourth stalemate in the last six meetings between the sides. The two most recent of those ended 1-1, which is priced at 12/1. If you think Everton can put in a defensive masterclass to keep the likes of Kane and Dele Alli out, the goalless draw is available at 14/1.

Kane is the 23/10 favourite to open the scoring, and with his recent record it’s hard to look past the in-form Englishman. The striker acknowledged his side need to start winning trophies if he’s going to stay, and with Spurs currently three points behind fourth placed Liverpool, he surely rates Champions League qualification highly too. He’s 4/7 to find the back of the net anytime, and 21/10 to score in a Tottenham win.

Rooney is 16/1 to hit the target in a surprise Everton win, which doesn’t improve your odds too much on an outright bet on the Toffees. Keeping your bets separate would probably be the way to go if you think the former England captain will get on the scoresheet, and he’s priced at 9/2 to bag anytime or 12/1 to break the deadlock.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Toiling Toffees. The goals have dried up for Everton as well as the points, with Allardyce’s side’s only goal in their last four Premier League games coming in the 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth. Spurs are 7/10 to keep a clean sheet, and 13/15 to win to nil.

2

We fancy:

Alli to score and Tottenham to win at 9/2. With two goals in his last three games, the English midfielder looks like he’s returning to form after a bit of a dip. One more goal would take him into double figures for the season, and he’s 21/1 to net the first in a 2-0 Spurs win.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

Rooney to score the only goal of the game at 150/1. It’s a tough ask for Everton to keep Spurs out, and become just the fourth team this season to do so, but stranger things have happened. If you think the Toffees can get a second sucker punch and add to Rooney’s opener to win 2-0, the odds increase to a massive 450/1.
