Everton v Tottenham Prediction: Premier League Match on 07.11.2021
Round 11 of the English Premier League will be played this weekend, with 10 fixtures decided over the course of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Four of those games will be played on Sunday, with the focus of this article coming from Goodison Park, where Everton take on Tottenham from 14:00 GMT. The famous old stadium will be packed to capacity as fans from Merseyside and London attempt to roar their team on to victory. With both the Toffees and Spurs hoping to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, this should provide followers with an entertaining 90 minutes.
Neither Everton nor Tottenham have been anywhere near as successful as they would have hoped so far in this campaign, with both clubs already well off the pace set by current leaders Chelsea. They both have much work to do if they are to stand any chance of making it into the top four and securing Champions League football for next season. Defeat here would be another huge blow, while a win would breathe life back into a team’s chances of challenging for the prizes.
These famous Premier League teams have been involved in some memorable battles over the years, including a nine-goal thriller from last season when Everton secured victory in the FA Cup thanks to a jaw-dropping 5-4 scoreline. They met three times in the league and cup, producing a total of 14 goals. Neutrals would love to see another high scoring match here, but fans of either side would be just as happy with an uneventful 1-0 win and three points for their club to help get them back on track.
Toffees suffer back to back defeats
Everton started this week down in ninth place in the Premier League following a less than convincing start to the season. They had won only four of their opening nine games, drawing two and losing the other three. They have scored 15 goals but conceded 14, which gives us a clearer picture of the problems at Goodison Park this season. Everton have scored three more goals than Arsenal, who are sixth in the league table but have conceded two more than Southampton, who are down in 14th.
Everyone working behind the scenes at the Toffees will be desperate to improve their defensive numbers, and a home match is the perfect place to start the fightback. They prepare for the visit of Spurs, having won only one of their last five games, taking one point from the last nine available to them. Everton have lost each of their last two games, meaning the pressure is on the players and manager to make an overdue return to winning ways. Victory over Spurs would certainly help get fans back on side.
Everton’s back to back defeats were inflicted by West Ham United and Watford, both at Goodison Park. The Hammers are flying this season under David Moyes and battled o a 1-0 win before Watford caused a massive upset when winning 5-2 at this venue. That was a real sore one for everyone at the club to take, and the fact it came against lowly Watford only made things worse. Fans want to see a major improvement in this game.

Tottenham start well but fall off the pace
Tottenham headed into the week one place higher than their hosts in eighth place after 10 games. Their form so far shows an even split of five wins against five defeats, with just nine goals scored and 16 conceded. When remembering Spurs have one of the best players in the world in their attack, the lack of goals is alarming. Another season spent without success and missing out on the top four could help make up star striker Harry Kane’s mind, and the England scorer may start to push through a move to a bigger club with Manchester City the favourites to capture Kane.
Tottenham have scored 17 fewer goals than fellow Londoners and current league leaders, Chelsea, at this point, with their return of nine being less than Burnley and Newcastle, who are both in the relegation zone. The visitors must improve their numbers in attack and must start scoring the many chances they are creating. They have lost three of their last five games and suffered defeat in each of their last two league outings. Confidence is low in the camp, and another defeat would send them skittling down the table, increasing pressure on the manager and his under-performing players.
It may seem like a long time ago now, but Tottenham began the season by beating champions Manchester City, and they enjoyed a strong opening month. Since then, things have gone from bad to worse. They were beaten 1-0 by West Ham across the capital at the former Olympic Stadium in Stratford before suffering a painful 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United last time. That’s the same Man Utd that were hammered 5-0 by Liverpool in the game before. There’s pressure on the away team to improve and get something out of this game.
Everton v Tottenham prediction
Here we have a game featuring two teams in poor form, but that doesn’t mean we’ll get a poor game. The pressure is on both sides, which should make this a nervy, tense 90 minutes with both knowing they need a goal but also well aware of their frailties in defence. Everton holds the home advantage and have the better scoring stats, which fans hope will make the difference and be enough to secure the home win.
Tottenham need the big-game players in this team to stand up and deliver. They must take responsibility for the team underperforming and do what they can to get them firing again. There is no doubt Spurs have the better individual talent of the two teams, but they all must be pulling in the same direction and firing. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a Spurs team working together.
