Champions League positions.

The Toffees are winless in three as they look to re-build their early season momentum, especially at Goodison Park. They are proving difficult to beat as they have been involved in eight draws already, but they need to start picking up three points to rejuvenate the side and mount a fourth-placed challenge.

Spurs are not having any such troubles and are flying at the moment. Andre Villas- Boas’ side have secured maximum points in their last three outings including impressive wins over West Ham and Fulham. The North London side even managed to ensure qualification to the next stage of the Europa League with a 3-1 victory over Panathinaikos on Thursday night.

Now that Tottenham have re-established themselves to be level on points with third-placed Chelsea, they will want to ensure that they maintain a level of consistency.

AVB is expected to be without Michael Dawson who has a slim chance of recovering for Sunday. Gareth Bale is also not expected to make the trip to Merseyside while Lloris should replace Friedel in goal, following the American’s start on Thursday.

David Moyes will have the luxury of being able to select the same starting XI as he has done for the third game running if he so chooses. There are no new injury or suspension concerns, so Everton remain fresh going into this fixture.

Despite Everton being draw specialists, Tottenham have gone 12 games without a draw in the Premier League.

Prediction: Everton 1-1 Tottenham
