Everton out to shrink gap with Tottenham, in short and long term

Everton out to shrink gap with Tottenham, in short and long term”

Tottenham will look to close-in on the top four with a win when they take on Everton at Wembley on Saturday evening.

In the United States (US), * a href="https://www.fubo.tv/lp/soccer/?bgvideo=EPL.mp4&title=Watch%20The%20Premier%20League&subinfo=the%20entire%20season%20on%20NBC*%20and%20NBCSN&priceline=*Regional%20restrictions%20apply&cta=Start%207-Day%20Free%20Trial%E2%80%8B&irad=356356&irmp=1131770&utm_source=Goal&utm_campaign=Perform&utm_medium=htw&utm_content=EPL%20" target="_blank" *Premier League matches can be watched live and on-demand with fuboTV (7-day free trial).

Leighton Baines (calf), Seamus Coleman (broken leg) and Ramiro Funes Mori (knee) are all missing in defence for Allardyce while Michael Keane is also doubtful after he picked up a foot injury in the defeat to Liverpool last weekend.

Everton chief Steve Walsh insists no signing is made without manager Sam Allardyce's say-so.

Lookman has scarcely appeared since scoring twice in the Europa League in December, recording a man-of-the-match display against Apollon Limassol, but his dribbling ability and pace caused problems at Anfield, and this is the ideal scenario to hand the youngster an extended run in the team and see what he can do.

Everton have mustered only four shots on target in as many games, six less than any other side in the top flight. Tottenham will be expecting to win this game.

Their run of 16 points from the last seven league fixtures is second only to leaders Manchester City.

17-year-old Rodel Richards scored another two goals for the youth team this week when they comprehensively beat their counterparts from the Liverpool academy 4-0.

Unfortunately, Everton haven't won against Spurs in over five years and are one of Harry Kane's favourite opponents. After no goals or assists in his first 10 league appearances in royal blue, the Iceland midfielder has recorded three goals and two assists in the next 10.

While on paper this game appears to be a straight-forward win for Spurs, Everton are likely to prove a more complicated opponent than Tottenham fans will be hoping.

Sam Allardyce's side are winless in five matches and have lost three games in a row in all competitions.

Everton come into this game in a bit of a mess.

New signing Cenk Tosun scored 38 goals in 71 games for Besiktas since the start of last season.
