Here are our Premier League predictions for Saturdya's early kick-off between Everton and Tottenham. Spurs head into this game as the form favourite with three wins from their last five matches but all of those victories have come in their own backyard and this weekend they face an Everton side that might lack goals but makes up for that with a solid defence.

Everton vs Tottenham prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Under 2.5 Goals

  • Three of the last five league meetings between these two clubs have produced under 2.5 goals.
  • Four of Everton's last five outings have witnessed fewer than three goals.

Another reason that we have under 2.5 goals our main prediction is that Everton have kept clean sheets in four of their last five matches but have only scored two goals during that period.

Everton vs Tottenham team news

Everton

Both Everton and Fulham will have felt that they should have won their meeting at Craven Cottage in midweek. The match proved to be goalless but didn't lack entertainment in any way with both teams hitting the crossbar and coming close to scoring on several occasions.

Abdoulaye Doucoure, Seamus Coleman and Andre Gomes look set to miss out this weekend through injury, but the Toffees could welcome back Idrissa Gana Gueye from the Africa Cup of Nations while Amadou Onana could return to the side after missing the Fulham game with a knock.

Predicted Lineup: Pickford (GK), Young, Godfrey, Tarkowski, Mykolenko, Branthwaite, Harrison, Garner, Calvert-Lewin, Gueye & McNeil

Tottenham

Tottenham showed plenty of character to come from behind at home to Brentford on Wednesday night. The Bees led 1-0 at the interval but Destiny Udogie equalised early in the second half and a minute later, Brennan Johnson put the home side in front. Richarlison continued his good form with Tottenham's third goal in the fifty-sixth minute and although Brentford pulled a goal back, the hosts held on to win the game 3-2.

Pape Sarr could make his return to the Tottenham squad after Senegal were knocked out of AFCON 2023 but Yves Bissouma and Heung-Min Son are both still on international duty. Alejo Veliz, Ryan Sessegnon, Giovani Lo Celso and Manor Solomon are all injury concerns for the visitors this weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Vicario (GK), Romero, Porro, van de Ven, Udogie, Maddison, Johnson, Højbjerg, Kulusevski, Werner & Richarlison

Player to Watch: Jarrad Branthwaite

Everton's young centre-back has built up a fantastic partnership with James Tarkowski and the former Carlisle United defender has attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in European football.

Everton might lack a cutting edge in the final third right now but their defence is at its very strongest thanks largely to the Branthwaite-Tarkowski partnership. Everton are going to need Branthwaite to impress again this weekend when they go up against a former idol in Richarlison.

The Brazilian's pace and movement will cause Tarkowski issues so we expect 21-year-old Branthwaite to mark the ex-Toffee as he has more pace and is more agile than his defensive partner and this should prove to be a very interesting battle.
