Everton v Spurs Match Preview

Spurs v Everton

Ange Postecoglou’s side look to retain their place in the Premier League’s top four with a second win in as many games when they take a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Saturday.

The Premier League returned midweek following the fourth round of the FA Cup, and it saw Spurs collect their 13th victory of the 2023/24 season against Thomas Frank’s Brentford, beating them 3 – 2. A win against the Bees, combined with Aston Villa’s defeat against Newcastle United, meant that Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham moved back into the top four with just three points separating them from 3rd place Arsenal and 2nd place Manchester City.

Left back Destiny Udogie (48’) was on the scoresheet, as was Brennan Johnson (49’) and Richarlison (56’) in Spurs’ win on Wednesday evening. This win was yet another stand out victory that the North London club has recorded this term.

Sean Dyche’s Everton are Tottenham’s next opponents in the Premier League. These two ever-present Premier League clubs will meet at Goodison Park on Saturday, 3rd February 2024, in a 12:30 kick-off.

If Spurs get the win on the blue side of Stanley Park, they could move level on points with second and third, as well as move 3 points clear of 5th place Aston Villa – this is if other results go their way this weekend.

As for Everton, they sit in 18th place, and with a win they can climb out of the relegation zone and as high as 16th place, leapfrogging Luton Town and Nottingham Forest should results elsewhere also go their way.

Before we talk about the Everton match, let’s look back at some of Spurs’ most high profile and significant results of the 2023/24 season so far.

The first highly significant result of the current campaign saw Spurs emerge as comfortable 2 – 0 winners against Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United in the first game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium of the new season. Pape Matar Sarr (49’) and an own goal from United defender Lisandro Martinez (83’) sealed the win.

Another win that caught the eye came a couple of weeks later at Turf Moor, where they faced Vincent Kompany’s newly promoted Burnley team in Lancashire. In the end, it was to be a completely ruthless performance from Postecoglou’s Lilywhites, with Son Heung-Min (16’, 63’, 66’), Cristian Romero (45+2’) and James Maddison (54’) finding the back of the net.

After goals from Richarlison (90+8’) and Dejan Kulusevski (90+10’) secured a 2 – 1 comeback win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Sheffield United, the first North London Derby of the season took place.

It was to be a tense and enthralling contest at the Emirates Stadium, with the game ending in a 2 – 2 draw. An own goal from Cristian Romero gave the Gunners the early advantage with less than half an hour gone (26’) before Son Heung-Min found the equaliser to restore parity for the visiting Lilywhites just before the half-time break (42’).

A penalty from Bukayo Saka just moments into the second half gave the home side the 2 – 1 lead before Son scored his second, completing a brace to level the game at 2 – 2 (55’) just a minute later.

Another significant win came the week after the North London Derby when Tottenham Hotspur welcomed a Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in late September 2023. Spurs took the lead through Son Heung-Min just after half an hour (36’) before Cody Gakpo equalised for the visiting Reds side in first-half stoppage time (45+4’).

An own goal from Liverpool central defender Joel Matip sealed all three points and a statement victory for Postecoglou’s side (90+6’).

Fast forward to early December 2023, when Spurs were involved in a tremendous game at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City, which saw the two Premier League heavyweights play out what was an enthralling 3 – 3 draw. Son Heung-Min gave Spurs the lead (6’) before scoring an own goal just a few moments later (9’).

Phil Foden then gave Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens the lead, making it 2 – 1 with the game just after half an hour (31’). Giovani Lo Celso restored parity with just over twenty minutes of the contest remaining (69’), only for City to take the lead once again with less than 10 minutes of normal time remaining (81’). Dejan Kulusevski then scored a late equaliser to give Spurs what was to be a deserved point (90’).

Another significant result to mention here is Spurs’ emphatic 4 – 1 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United. Destiny Udogie (26’) gave them the lead before Richarlison (38’, 60’) and Son Heung-Min (85’ – Penalty) both found the back of the net to confirm the win. Callum Wilson scored the only goal for the Magpies in second half stoppage time (90+1’).

Now we move on to the Spurs’ game against Sean Dyche’s Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday, 3rd February 2024, in a 12:30 kick-off.

The most recent match between these two clubs took place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday, 23rd December 2023. It was a tight and tense 2 – 1 win for Tottenham in the end, with Richarlison (9’) and Son Heung-Min (18’) scoring for the home side. Andre Gomes scored the only goal for the visiting Toffees (82’).

Overall, Spurs and Everton have faced each other 187 times in competitive football to date, including their first-ever meeting on 6th February 1904, where Spurs won 2 – 1 in the FA Cup. Tottenham has a superior record of 71 wins compared to the Toffees’ 57. There have been 59 draws between them to date.

Following this game, Spurs have three home games in succession. The first is against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday 10th February in a 15:00 kick-off. This is followed by the visit of Gary O’Neil’s Wolves a week later, on 17th February, in another 15:00 kick-off.

The third consecutive home game will then be against a Crystal Palace side led by Roy Hodgson on Saturday, 2nd March 2024, in a 15:00 kick-off.
