Tottenham Hotspur travel to Goodison Park today to take on Everton. Spurs arrive in good form, having won their last three Premier League games in succession, and having overcome their bitter rivals Arsenal in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
Mauricio Pochettino will need another big performance from his side to ensure that they return from Merseyside with three points in tow. In order for his side to exert their dominance over the hosts, Pochettino has to get his team selection right.

Winning the midfield battle will be crucial. Pochettino is likely to call upon Moussa Sissoko in the middle of the park once again. The 55-cap France international has made himself a regular starter this season and has produced a number of good performances. However, last time out, against the Gunners, the 29-year-old was woeful.
What’s more, Spurs have superior midfield options to call upon.
However, plenty of Tottenham fans retain their faith in the Frenchman. Of those who took part in our poll, 76% voted in favour of Sissoko starting against the Toffees. See the full results below.
