Everton, enjoying their best run of the season, will be looking to extend their unbeaten Premier League sequence to seven matches when they take on Tottenham. David Moyes’ side last tasted defeat on January 11 – against Harry Redknapp’s side – and although four of their six matches have ended in draws, their two wins came against Manchester City and Chelsea at Goodison Park and they have climbed up to 13th place in the table. Tottenham’s Champions League hopes took another blow last weekend as they followed up their recent 5-2 defeat at Arsenal with a damaging 3-1 home loss to Manchester United. Spurs still sit in third place in the Premier League, but are only four points better off than the Gunners, who are fourth, so Harry Redknapp’s side, whose last away win in the league was at Norwich on December 27, cannot afford too many more slip-ups.
• Everton have allowed their opponents fewer shots on target against them than any other team in the top flight this season (93).
• Tottenham have beaten Everton 19 times in Premier League history, more often than any other team apart from Man City (also 19).
