Tottenham were seen challenging for top-spot in the Premier League earlier in the season, but they will now think themselves extremely lucky to get their hands on a top-four finish and ensure Champions League football returns to their impressive new stadium next season. After poor results, they need a result now. Here are our top Tottenham v Everton betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
It would be a shame if fans had to sit through Europa League group matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a sporting venue built for bigger and better things. An end of season wobble means they are just three points better than Arsenal in fifth, having lost three of their last four and each of their two most recent starts. Fans are set for a nail-biting finale.
They may be one of the most skilled teams in the division when at full strength but Pochettino doesn’t boast the squad numbers some of his rival managers do and that’s starting to show as they stagger across the line. This will be their second match of the week, just to pile the pressure on, following Wednesday’s dramatic trip to Ajax. Legs will be heavy, but the players must give one final push to get themselves across the line. The home win is 10/11 with Bet365 and that will catch the eye of value hunters, looking to back it as a super single.
Big Finish Needed from Everton
Everton have put together a decent finish to the season and bus to London with three wins and a draw managed in their last five. That has lifted them to eighth in the pile and within touching distance of a Europa League finish but there’s still much work to do as Watford in 10th are three points behind, meaning the visitors could miss out on European qualification once again. That would be another nail in the coffin of this high-earning squad who are failing to live up to expectations.
The Toffees were last seen beating Burnley 2-0 at Goodison Park on Friday night, a match that was one in three first-half minutes. Mee suffered the embarrassment of an own-goal on 17 minutes and Coleman doubled his side’s advantage with 20 on the clock. It was a convincing display with the victorious side dominating the stats and ending much the better side. The fact the pressure is on to win this match will keep Everton interested and you can back the away day at 16/5 (William Hill).
