Harry Kane scores for Tottenham against Arsenal

Harry Kane celebrates after scoring against Arsenal

Tottenham will face a tough test of their Premier League title credentials as the Lilywhites face Everton at Goodison Park.

The Toffees will certainly want to do one over on us but we come into the game with a lot of confidence following our 2-0 win over Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.

Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane were rested in that win, and the pair should start for us on Sunday. Mauricio Pochettino could change a few things in our starting XI.

Tottenham have to keep their players fresh for the gruelling Christmas schedule. Here is my predicted line-up for Spurs.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

The French keeper was rested against the Gunners and should return to the side to face Everton.

Kyle Walker-Peters (RB)

The youngster could get the start in place of Kieran Trippier and needs to be wary of the threat possessed by the home side.

Juan Foyth celebrates with his Tottenham teammates

Juan Foyth (CB)

The Argentine should be fit to face the Toffees and continue his great form for Tottenham.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The Belgian can’t be rested with Jan Vertonghen out. Hopefully, once Davinson Sanchez is ready to start, we can give Toby a well-deserved break.

Ben Davies (LB)

Davies should slot into the left-back role now with Foyth starting in the heart of the defence.

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

The French midfielder cannot be dropped from the side and has to continue in the starting XI with the likes of Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier injured.

Moussa Sissoko Tottenham

Oliver Skipp (CM)

Harry Winks did a pretty good job in the win over the Gunners but Tottenham should replace the Englishman with Skipp.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

Eriksen has been decent in the recent weeks for Tottenham and the Dane should keep his place in the side.

Dele Alli (LAM)

Alli scored a goal against Arsenal that should help his confidence. He generally does well against Everton.

Erik Lamela of Tottenham

Erik Lamela (RAM)

The Argentine came on in the second half against the Gunners and should start for us against Everton.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane was the other star rested in midweek, and hopefully, he bags a goal or two against the Toffees.
