Sometimes it pays not only to look at the strengths of a certain team, but the weakness of another. That‘s certainly the case at White Hart Lane on Sunday, where Spurs will face an Everton team decimated by injuries and likely to be fatigued after a midweek trip to Portugal. Irrespective of Thursday night‘s game against Sporting Lisbon, it‘s asking a lot of David Moyes‘ team to be fresh for this match, while Marouane Fellaini, Tim Cahill and Tony Hibbert will all be missing for the Merseyside team. The Toffees lost at the Lane in the Carling Cup back in October and may lose out to a team not involved in Europe this term.
Indeed, it‘s ironic that Tottenham‘s ability to focus purely on the Premier League might be the reason why they land that elusive fourth Champions League place this season. Sunday‘s 3-0 win at Wigan was fully deserved and they will carry plenty of momentum into this match. Jermain Defoe is enjoying another hot streak of form in front of goal and the striker could have plenty of joy against a makeshift Everton defence, while Roman Pavlyuchenko might also feature after his brace at the JJB last Sunday. Best odds for the Tottenham win is 2.00 at Stan James.
