Everton – Tottenham
Everton welcomes Tottenham Hotspur at the Goodison Park in a last game from the 11th round of the Premier League. Let’s discuss it right now.
For Everton this season is going just terrible so far. Despite of having a solid squad with some very classy players in it, right now the Toffees are 16th in Premier League standings with 10 points, being just two points ahead of the 18th Southampton and the relegation zone. Despite of this, Marco Silva is still leading the team when most of the people are expecting to see him being sacked.
Everton’s record in their last five games is just awful – one win and four losses. They managed to win against West Ham United at home, but in the previous round Silva’s boys once again lost in the league. Everton visited Brighton & Hove Albion at The American Express and got defeated with 2-3. Brighton & Hove’s Adam Webster scored himself an own goal, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored for Everton.
It’s clear that if his team continues to perform like this, Marco Silva can’t keep his job. This would be far from the logical thing to do. Could this be Silva’s last match as Everton manager?
Tottenham Hotspur are also not doing as good as they would want to. At the current moment Spurs are 11th in the league standings with 12 points won, being already 16 points behind the leader Liverpool. We think that’s all we can say about Spurs’ title ambitions they announced before the beginning of the season.
Just as Everton, Tottenham won just one of their last five games in the Premier League – against Southampton. In their last game Spurs suffered their fourth loss for the season. Mauricio Pochettino’s boys visited Liverpool at the Anfield and opened the score in the first minute of the game, but after all they suffered a 1-2 loss.
Clearly Everton and Tottenham Hotspur are two teams with some problems at the moment. And with two managers under fire. Can they change their fortunes? We will see.
