Everton have already been tipped to win at White Hart Lane by our news.Ladbrokes team and in Romelu Lukaku they have a striker in their midst capable of getting the goals to do just that.
The Toffees’record signing has hit five Premier League goals already this season, and crucially arrives in north London in fine fettle after opening his account in Europe too.
The £28m man’s rampaging run and finish against Wolfsburg (below) set Everton on their way to a 2-0 win and qualification to the knockout stages in the process.
That typically cool finish also made it successive deadlock-breaking strikes for the Belgian, who now looks a brilliant bet at boosted odds of 7/1, out from 6/1, to make it three in a row at Tottenham.
The scenario is made all the more plausible by Spurs’ poor Premier League form at the Lane since Mauricio Pochettino took the Lilywhites job in the summer.
Liverpool, West Brom, Newcastle and Stoke have all left this corner of north London with the spoils this season, while three of those victors have been the first on the scoresheet.
Furthermore, Pochettino’s charges clearly have an issue conceding early goals in games.
Hugo Lloris has seen five fly into his net in the opening quarter-hour of top-flight matches this season, accounting for 30 per cent of the total shipped.
Meanwhile, Roberto Martinez’s vastly-improving side have scored first in five of their last six games in all competitions which featured goals.
