Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview (10/03/2012)

Tottenham arrive at Goodison Park this Saturday evening seemingly deflated by a loss of form and lost impetus following weeks of speculation surrounding manager Harry Redknapp’s commitment to the Tottenham cause.

One ray of light for Spurs has been Louis Saha who is now not expected to play due to a gentlemen’s agreement struck between Everton and Tottenham. Saha couldn’t hit a barn door when at Everton with fans citing the lack of chances created and a bad injury record for his struggle to regain form. Saha has scored three goals already for Tottenham and it will be interesting to see how he does if he plays against us at Goodison.

Saha would of obviously have got a great reception from the Evertonians but there is an inevitability that he will come back to sting us eventually.

Spurs have got a cracking player who on his day is one of the best strikers in the league but with his contract running down at Everton, injury ridden an somewhat going through the motions, Everton fans were far from sad to see the French striker leave but it could be a good move by Happy Harry to get the best out of Saha in a team that creates plenty of chances and is challenging near the top of the league.

Steven Pienaar will be a big miss for Everton on Saturday with him unable to play against his parent club but Royston Drenthe showed glimpses of potential against Q.P.R and his talent is unquestionable but inconsistently remains his biggest problem and possibly the reason why Moyesie is reluctant to give him the full 90 minutes.

Tim Howard fresh from signing a new deal has been outstanding this season but an old foe in Brad Friedel will provide a massive task for Everton with Tottenham’s American between the sticks showing he’s not ready to be leaving on a jetplane back to the U.S just yet!

Tottenham absolutely battered us at White Hart Lane earlier in the season but at Goodison on a March evening with the Evertonians in full voice then it could a much closer result.

Nikica Jelavic could be given his first taste of what its like to play at Goodison even if he only comes on as a sub and he will be wanting to quickly show that he can cut it in the Premier League.

Spurs are one of a few teams that always seem to bring a good support to Goodison and they will be backed by Talksport presenter Paul Hawksee who is travelling to Goodison for the game.

Our Prediction is a for Everton to edge it by a goal but we’re always going to be biased but hopefully the blue boys will do it for us come Saturday evening and make Match of the Day worth watching!

Our Result Prediction: Everton 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

The Actual  Result Was: Everton 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur
