Everton will be looking to continue their excellent recent form this weekend when they take on a Tottenham side aiming to get back to winnings ways on Saturday evening.
David Moyes’ men are unbeaten since the 11th January – when they lost to Saturday’s opponents at White Hart Lane – and there is no doubt that they have an extremely solid look about them at the moment, so the price of 2/1 on the home win with Betfred is looking a little too big to ignore.
Defensively they have been excellent recently with just two goals conceded in their last five games. Then, going forward, they have been boosted by the January signings of Stephen Pienaar and Nikica Jelavić.
The Toffees will be disappointed by the fact that they are still 13th despite a positive run, but they are only two points from 8th position and they will have genuine ambitions of climbing this high. They are in the FA Cup still too, so there is plenty to play for.

As for Tottenham, they have lost their last two games – against Arsenal and Manchester Untied – and they now need to return to winning ways. They need to make sure they have simply suffered a blip in form and nothing more.
Otherwise, they are in danger of losing their position in the top three or even in the top four. Arsenal are just four points behind them at the moment of course, while Chelsea – who will look to improve their form after sacking Andre Villas-Boas – are another three points adrift.
Overall, this weekend’s trip to Everton – which is followed by games against Stoke and Chelsea – is an extremely important one for Spurs’ season.
Looking at the team news for this one, Phil Jagielka, Victor Anichebe, Leon Osman and Jack Rodwell are all in contention for Everton after playing for the reserves during the week, although Pienaar – who is on-loan for Tottenham – is unable to play.
As for Tottenham, Aaron Lennon will face a late fitness test after limping off in the FA Cup during the week. Louis Saha then hopes to be fit enough to take on the club he left in January. Michael Dawson definitely misses out.
