Preview: Spurs vs Everton – latest team & injury news, predicted XI

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur side return to Premier League action this evening, with Everton making the trip to London for a 20:00 kick-off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And, while Spurs registered an impressive 4-0 victory over Leeds United in their last league outing, a 1-0 AET FA Cup defeat to Championship side Middlesbrough last Tuesday brought the Italian’s outfit back down to earth with a bump – with the 52-year-old certain to be hoping for a much-improved performance against the Toffees this time out.

Are you confident of a result tonight?





So, will Conte make any changes to the side that started the loss to Boro last week?

Here’s how we think Tottenham could line up against Everton, as well as the latest team and injury news…

With Conte recently revealing that both Rodrigo Bentancur and Lucas Moura are once again available for selection after recovering from knocks, while Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga remain sidelined due to injury, we predicted that the Italian will make just one change to the side that lined up at the Riverside last Tuesday.

The back four remain unchanged, with Hugo Lloris starting between the sticks, and Ben Davies, Eric Dier and Cristian Romero making up Conte’s three-man defence.

Meanwhile, Ryan Sessegnon retains his starting spot ahead of the “phenomenal” – in the words of Alasdair Gold – £68k-per-week Sergio Reguilon at left wing-back and Matt Doherty gets the nod ahead of Emerson Royal on the right.

The one and only change comes in the middle of the park, with the fit-again Bentancur – who Massimiliano Allegri once dubbed the “surprise of the championship” – taking the place of the £91k-per-week Harry Winks – who Tony Cascarino once claimed was substituted because he was “casting shadows” – alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in central midfield.

A truly wasted talent...

In attack, the highly impressive Dejan Kulusevski keeps his starting spot ahead of Lucas Moura on the right of the front three, while usual suspects Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane start on the left and through the middle respectively.
