Opponent Watch: Everton set to miss key attacker in PL clash vs Tottenham Hotspur

Everton set to be without Anthony Gordon for Tottenham Hotspur clash due to suspension

Everton winger Anthony Gordon is a player Tottenham Hotspur fans would be familiar with after the recently-concluded transfer window.

Spurs signed Richarlison from the Toffees and were then linked with a move for Gordon before the interest seemingly petered out towards the end of the transfer window. He ended up staying at Goodison Park for the campaign.

However, Gordon will not be taking to the pitch this weekend for Spurs fans to have a first-hand look at him once again. He picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in Everton’s 2-1 loss against Manchester United on Sunday (October 9).

This means he will automatically be suspended for the Premier League game against Spurs on Saturday, October 15 at Goodison Park after his prior yellow card offences against Nottingham Forest, Brentford, Leeds United and West Ham United.

Everton should not be taken lightly

The 21-year-old attacker has scored just twice this season in nine league games. His speed and tendency to get into attacking positions, however, are things our defence is better off not dealing with.

It’s not like the Toffees will be without firepower against us. They may not have lost Richy to us this summer and travel to north London with a suspended Gordon, but the likes of Dwight McNeil, Alex Iwobi, Neal Maupay, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin can cause us problems regardless.

With Liverpool’s loss against Arsenal at the Emirates, it’s not crazy to suggest that we look like a far better team than them when it comes to challenging for the title this season. Hopefully, we can make it a three-horse race with the Gunners and Man City.

But for that, games like the one this weekend must be three points. The Toffees are 12th in the table but have been beaten by us just twice in the last eight meetings between us across all competitions.

The game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday is very important but Conte must, as unwise as it may sound right now, must keep an eye on the Everton fixture when selecting his team tomorrow night. Failure to win against Frank Lampard’s men can be an early blow in the race against two teams that don’t look like losing anytime soon.
