Since then, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have enjoyed an indifferent season, floundering between impressive results and utter disappointment.
Meanwhile, Spurs have fallen from top of the Premier League all the way down to seventh, a position they have only themselves to blame for after squandering countless leads.
If Jose Mourinho’s men win at Goodison Park this evening they will go back to within three points of the top four, while Everton would close the gap to four points off the Champions League places.

Everton - 23/10
Tottenham - 23/20
Everton seem to bounce between the sublime to the ridiculous so you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get from them. By contrast, you’re almost certain at this point what you’re going to get from Mourinho’s Spurs side. If the visitors allow the Toffees to come onto them like they almost certainly will, Everton should eventually make them pay. 2-1 Everton.
