Everton vs Tottenham | Sunday 24 May, 2015 | Goodison Park | 15.00
Everton and Tottenham Hotspur will play their final game of the Premier League season at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Finishing in the top half of the Premier League table is a positive achievement for Everton considering there were fears that they were going to get dragged back into the relegation fight just a few month ago.
Everton will finish 10th if they manage a win against Spurs on Sunday. However, if they lose while West Ham win their game against Newcastle, they will finish in 11th.
Before two disappointing back-to-back defeats to Aston Villa and Sunderland, Everton were on a run of six straight home wins in all competitions. However, they earned a vital 1-2 win at West Ham which moved them above the Hammers to 10th.
A tough season has taken its toll on Tottenham and, prior to their 2-0 win over Hull City last weekend, they had won just one out of their last six Premier League games. The side have won just one of their last five away games and suffered an embarrassing 0-3 at Stoke City on their last travels.
Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that his side are still focused on securing a place in the Europa League next season. That position is, however, far from secured being one point adrift of Liverpool, who play Stoke City on Sunday and just one point above Southampton who could snatch their Europa League spot.
“We’re still in the fight to finish fifth. The fans needed that – it was a tough season for them too.
“I want to play in Europe next season – we need to win to be sure of getting in the Europa League and that is very important.”
Everton are unbeaten in seven home games against Tottenham with one of those matches ending in a draw. Spurs however beat Everton 2-1 earlier this season at White Hart Lane.
Ben Davies and Kyle Walker are both expected to miss Spurs’ final game of the season due to injury.
As for Everton, they will miss Leighton Baines, Bryan Oviedo and Darron Gibson, while Aaron Lennon is unable to play since he’s on loan from Tottenham.
