Everton - Tottenham

I’m not sure what’s going on with Everton. They have had a bad run almost in every season under Moyes, but this time they apparently can’t pull themselves out of the mud. Everton have only one win in last ten games (City away) and have gained only ten points at home (only Blackpool got less). Also, Toffees kept a clean sheet only once in those ten (Wigan at home 0-0) and their performance doesn’t look good. The big(gest) problem for tonight is absence of Moyes’ key man, Tim Cahill (scored 9 of 21 team’s goals), who is out for Australian national team. Defender Jagielka is also out, while Heitinga and Coleman are facing a late fitness test. Everton have only managed to win two of their last nine home games.

Beside Man Utd, Tottenham are probably enjoy the best shape in Premier. They haven’t felt the taste of defeat in eleven competitive games (won six and draw twice in last 8 Premier games) and have noticed three league wins in a row. They play very well and have Bale (11 goals) and Van der Vaart (10 goals) in fantastic form. Bad news is ‘Arry also has some injury worries. Defoe and Kaboul are still suspended, while Hutton and Gallas got the knocks and their appearance is doubtful.

This is great value for me, Spurs shouldn’t be priced at 3.14 (away win at Pinnacle). They maybe looked tired against Fulham (or just were keeping the strength, who knows) and have some problems with defence line, but Everton’s attack without Cahill usually looks toothless. Goodison is not a happy place to go, but I can’t see the hosts winning this one. I’m covering a draw and taking dnb option at excellent odd.  

Maybe one more game...
