Tottenham host in-form Everton this afternoon (1.30pm kick-off) hoping to maintain their fine home record in the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won 11 of their 13 league matches at White Hart Lane this term, including their last eight on the spin, and they’ll be full of confidence ahead of the visit of Ronald Koeman’s men this afternoon.
