Tottenham VS Everton Live Football Score Match 15 Oct 2022
Tottenham Hotspur will go in search of their third successive win in all tournaments when they welcome Everton to North London on Saturday evening in the Premier League.
The Lilywhites survived a late scare to beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 in the Champions League on Wednesday, while Frank Lampard’s side went down 2-1 to Manchester United last week.Tottenham boss Antonio Conte admitted that his side learned a “big lesson” against 10-man Frankfurt, where their scintillating first-half attacking display almost counted for nought during a nerve-wracking end to that European encounter.
Son Heung-min (2) and Harry Kane cancelled out Daichi Kamada’s opener before Tuta was sent off for two bookable offences, but Frankfurt still made the net ripple again through Faride Alidou before Kane added a rare penalty miss to his CV.
Spurs ultimately held on for the win which sent them top of Champions League Group D, but the evening could have ended in disaster for the Lilywhites, who now have back-to-back wins to their name after last weekend’s success over Brighton & Hove Albion.
Conte’s side are still sitting pretty in third place in the Premier League table with 20 points to their name – four clear of Chelsea having played a game more – but Manchester City are three points ahead with a superior goal difference and are highly unlikely to be usurped this weekend.
Victory over Frankfurt – albeit a nervy one – saw Tottenham maintain their perfect home record in the 2022-23 season with a sixth win from as many matches, and their victorious Premier League streak at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium now stands at seven games, but Conte’s side cannot afford to take Everton lightly.It took the introduction of a five-time Ballon d’Or winner to break Everton’s resistance and end their six-game Premier League unbeaten run last week, as Cristiano Ronaldo came off the bench to secure a 2-1 win for Manchester United at Goodison Park.
Alex Iwobi’s fifth-minute stunner was rendered inconsequential on the night, as Antony scored a carbon copy of his goal against Arsenal before Ronaldo – on for the injured Anthony Martial – latched onto Casemiro’s pass and struck the winner just before half time – his 700th club goal.
Frank Lampard’s side had been slowly building momentum after a challenging start to the season, but defeat to the Red Devils leaves them languishing in 12th place in the table, and a four-point chasm separates them from both the relegation zone and the top seven.
All four of Everton’s away games in the 2022-23 Premier League season have seen both teams score, and the return of Dominic Calvert-Lewin should only benefit Everton’s chances of keeping that streak going, but not since May 2021 have the Toffees won away to a London club.
Everton had strung a four-game unbeaten run over Tottenham in all competitions before being demolished 5-0 in North London back in March, but Conte’s side will be wary of taking their foot off the accelerator after their midweek endeavours.Tottenham attacker Dejan Kulusevski was not quite ready to be involved against Frankfurt following his hamstring injury, and Conte has now conceded that the 22-year-old is not worth risking for Saturday either.
Kulusevski is also not guaranteed to be back for next week’s clash with Manchester United, but Lucas Moura was fit enough for a substitute cameo in midweek following a tendon issue, and Conte could have Japhet Tanganga back from a knock for the visit of Everton.
Emerson Royal will drop back down to the naughty step as he serves the second of a three-game domestic suspension, so Matt Doherty can feel confident about his chances of back-to-back Premier League starts.
The fresh legs of Ivan Perisic may also be preferred on the left over Ryan Sessegnon, while Richarlison will be desperate to start and score his first Premier League goal for Spurs against his former club.
Meanwhile, Everton striker Calvert-Lewin was able to come off the bench for 14 minutes against Man United – his first appearance of the season after a knee injury – but Lampard still needs to determine whether the Englishman is ready to start.
Ben Godfrey, Andros Townsend and Nathan Patterson remain on the sidelines, while Yerry Mina and Mason Holgate also need a little longer to recover, and Anthony Gordon will serve a suspension after picking up five yellow cards. Abdoulaye Doucoure, meanwhile, will be fine to feature despite a family issue.
The decision to drop Dwight McNeil for Gordon backfired on Lampard last weekend, and the former can expect an immediate recall to the XI while his teammate watches on from the sidelines.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Doherty, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Richarlison, Kane, Son
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko; Onana, Gueye, Iwobi; McNeil, Maupay, GrayDefeat to Man United should not affect the morale in the Everton camp too much, as Lampard has still overseen a sustained period of progress in recent weeks, and Calvert-Lewin’s return is certainly timely.
European fatigue will work against Tottenham, but with Kane and Son managing to click into gear in midweek – coupled with a fired-up Richarlison determined to prove to Everton what they are missing – we expect Conte’s side to just about edge a tight battle.Tottenham Hotspur are set to play Everton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday in the English Premier League.
Tottenham Hotspur come into this game on the back of a 3-2 win over Oliver Glasner’s Eintracht Frankfurt in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. A first-half brace from South Korean attacker Son Heung-min and a goal from star striker Harry Kane sealed the deal for Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur.Goals from Japanese midfielder Daichi Kamada and young winger Faride Alidou proved to be mere consolation for Eintracht Frankfurt, who had Brazilian centre-back Tuta sent off in the second half.
Everton, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United. First-half goals from Brazilian winger Antony and Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo secured the win for Manchester United. Nigerian midfielder Alex Iwobi scored the goal for Everton.Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton Head-to-Head and Key Numbers
