The first game of the Premier League weekend sees Tottenham Hotspur travel to Goodison Park where they take on Everton.
The Toffees slipped into the bottom three thanks to Luton’s win at home to Brighton in midweek, and suddenly relegation fears are starting to set in for Sean Dyche’s side again. They have failed to win their last five league games, and it will take a big performance to get three points on Saturday.
