Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Premier League
Mauricio Pochettino and his Tottenham players must recompose themselves for this Premier League preview, following one of the most famous nights in the club’s history. Spurs pulled off a miraculous comeback to reach the Champions League final where they play Liverpool in Madrid. First though, Tottenham finish off their domestic campaign with a home game against another Merseyside outfit, Everton.

Is Tottenham vs Everton on TV? Unfortunately, the game’s not on TV in the UK.
What happened last time? Tottenham put in a wonderful performance to sweep Everton aside 6-2 at Goodison Park just before Christmas. Theo Walcott actually gave the Toffees the lead, but Spurs stormed back with goals from Son Heung-min, Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen to lead 4-1. Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back for the home team, but further goals from Son and Kane sealed Tottenham’s emphatic victory.

Remember that time…Everton last beat Tottenham? It was all the way back in December 2012, but it was a memorable one. The Toffees were behind going into the final minute of the game at Goodison Park, but two late goals from Steven Pienaar and Nikica Jelavic handed the hosts a 2-1 win.
Team news and form
Last six: LWLLLW
Although Kane’s celebratory run onto the pitch at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Wednesday showed plenty of promise, the striker won’t feature in these Tottenham v Everton predictions. The England captain’s in a race to be fit for the Champions League final, but Harry Winks won’t be available for that following groin surgery. He misses this game along with the suspended Son and Juan Foyth, although Serge Aurier could return from injury.
Last six: WWLWDW
Andre Gomes is available for these football predictions after completing a three-match ban for violent conduct. This could be the last we see of the midfielder in a Toffees shirt, with his loan spell from Barcelona coming to an end. More worryingly for Everton ahead of this game is that Richarlison is a doubt with a rib injury. Yerry Mina could make his return from a hamstring injury though.
Tottenham vs Everton prediction, preview and betting tips
Technically, Tottenham still need a point from this game to finish in the top four. They have a three-point lead over rivals Arsenal though, with an eight-goal advantage in goal difference. Even if they blow that, Spurs now have another route into next season’s Champions League, but there’s no pathway into Europe for Everton.
Tottenham’s second-half performance against Ajax on Wednesday night showed the incredible heart and character of this team. Needing to score three goals without reply after the Dutch outfit had run riot in the first half, Lucas Moura’s hat-trick writes the Brazilian indelibly into the club’s history. It’s going to be tough to come down from that incredible high for this Tottenham v Everton prediction though.
Spurs hadn’t even been playing well before the second leg of their Champions League semi-final. They’d lost three games in a row 1-0, including the first leg at home to Ajax, and had lost five in seven. Just three wins and one draw in their last 11 Premier League fixtures has seen Tottenham drop from title contenders to needing a result to secure their spot in the top four. All that’s been washed away by Wednesday’s miraculous result though.
Everton meanwhile have had a decent end to the season. They’ve only lost one of their last seven matches, winning five. That includes victories over Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, although the Toffees start this game four points behind seventh-placed Wolves. Marco Silva’s side are set to finish eighth or ninth, which is a little disappointing.
With the visitors having nothing to play for, and Spurs riding a wave of emotion back at their new stadium, we fancy Pochettino’s side to end their domestic campaign on a high. Especially as Tottenham have a wonderful record against the Toffees. Spurs are unbeaten in the last 12 meetings between the sides, and have won each of the last four.
The hosts are 6/5 with Betway to pick up the win in your Tottenham vs Everton betting tips. Depending on how Chelsea get on away to Leicester City, that could see Spurs rise to third. Everton’s form means they’re likely to have a say in this game though. After eight goals between the sides earlier this season, we’re backing both teams to score predictions at 4/6 with bet365. Spurs to win and both teams to score is 3/1.
After 20 goals in the last four meetings between the teams, an over 4.5 goals bet on Sunday is 5/1. However, Tottenham may feel the effects of their midweek exploits a little, so we’re backing a 2-1 home win in your football score predictions. That’s 17/2, while if you want football tips with big odds, you can add Wednesday’s hero Lucas Moura as the first scorer for 53/1.
Tottenham vs Everton first goalscorer predictions
Moura became only the 10th player ever to receive a perfect 10/10 match rating from French newspaper L’Equipe in midweek. The Brazilian scored three fantastic goals in Amsterdam, including a historic 96th-minute winner. His second hat-trick inside a month, Moura now has 15 goals for the season. He is 6/1 with bet365 to open the scoring on Sunday. If you think Everton will take the lead, former Spurs man Gylfi Sigurdsson is 8/1 with the same bookmaker in the first goalscorer odds. It’s 94/1 if Tottenham then produce another comeback and recover to win 2-1.
