Late drama on the cards as Everton host Tottenham
If Tottenham Hotspur have been bemoaning the fact that teams have been unprepared to attack them this season, they might be longing for a return to playing against more industrious sides after facing Roberto Martinez’ Everton.
The adventurous Toffees have scored 11 in their past five league games and are priced at 7/5 to win, as they have done in the pair’s past three meetings at Goodison Park.
Last year Spurs were leading up until the 89th minute before Everton stunned them with two late goals to win the game.
However, given the recent record of this fixture, Spurs should have been prepared for a late rally from the hosts.
Including last year, four of the past seven matches at Goodison have seen late goals change the result, and Spurs also secured a late equaliser when the pair met at White Hart Lane in April.
Everton scored a late goal to win 2-1 in 2011, and notched two in the closing 15 minutes to grab a point in the 2-2 draw in 2009, with Spurs only benefitting from a late strike once to win 2-1 in 2007.
In total seven goals have come after the 75th minute in their last seven matches on Merseyside, and it is 1/1 that a goal will be scored after that mark again this time around.
Everton have scored three and conceded two after the 75th minute in their past five league games, while Spurs have notched four goals after that point in their last six away games in all competitions.
Spurs have only lost one game on the road this season in all competitions, winning seven out of eight away games without conceding.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side are 4/1 to win to nil at Goodison, but Everton are yet to lose at home in the Premier League, winning three and drawing one.
