Everton have drawn seven of their last nine and on that basis bet365’s 5/2 for them to share the spoils with Spurs at Goodison Park will inevitably be well supported. Similarly, BetVictor’s 6/1 chalked against a 1-1 scoreline is set to attract cash but the Toffees might be worth a modest flutter at 11/10 (Paddy Power) to build on that respectable draw at City by sending Tottenham home empty-handed.
Gareth Bale’s absence is a real blow for the visitors, especially in an attacking sense and with David Moyes’ performing reasonably well at the other end – they’ve failed to score just once all season – the hosts are the team to follow.
Nevertheless, it should be close and bet365’s 3/1 for Everton to nick it by one is worth considering while a 2-1 home win at 8/1 with Stan James also stands out, especially as it looks like both teams will net (8/11, Skybet). Marouane Fellaini can keep up the Toffees’ side of that bargain, he’s a 21/10 chance at Ladbrokes to strike.
Marouane Fellaini to score at any time – 21/10 (Ladbrokes)
