Paul Merson has shared his prediction for Tottenham Hotspur’s clash with Everton this weekend.
A quick glance at the Premier League table would suggest that the clash at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is going to prove to be something of a formality for Ange Postecoglou‘s side.
Spurs have won their last two and will go above Manchester City with a victory over Everton.

However, the Toffees are actually the form team in the Premier League right now. No team can match Sean Dyche‘s side’s record over the last four games, with Everton taking 12 points from 12.
It is remarkable that Everton, who only stayed up on the final day of last season, have played 17 games, been deducted 10 points and still find themselves seven points clear of the bottom three.
“Everton are flying in the Premier League. The midweek Carabao Cup loss to Fulham in the quarter-final was unfortunate. Tottenham also have their frontline firing right now. Richarlison is playing well and so is Dejan Kulusevski. Son Heung-min is enjoying a revival of sorts,” he said.
“Spurs are going to suffer next month when some of their biggest stars will leave for AFCON and the AFC Asian Cup. However, I think they have enough firepower to pull through.
“I think Tottenham are going to use their home advantage to go on and secure all three points against The Toffees despite the latter’s upturn in form in recent weeks.”
Spurs will do well to score three against Toffees
Tottenham have the potential to blow teams away with their exhilarating brand of football. They were the early pace-setters in the Premier League. And they will take plenty of confidence from their wins over Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest.
A win over Everton would arguably be the most impressive of the three. Funnily enough, two of the Toffees’ wins in this latest run came against Newcastle and Forest.
But they have also overcome Chelsea and Burnley. And they have not conceded a single goal in that run.
So Tottenham are probably going to need to be at their best to put three past Jordan Pickford.
