Tottenham hosts Everton in round 1 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, September 13th at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Tottenham has had an extremely dramatic last season. Within its framework, the era of Pochettino ended - the management did not pay attention to the fact that Mauricio brought the Spurs to the Champions League final last summer. However, even Mourinho didn’t help Tottenham to maintain a place in the top four. And other trophies traditionally did not fall into the hands of the London project. The Special One can justify this by the fact that he came already during the season. Beyond that, frequent injuries permanently incapacitated irreplaceable leaders, like Kane and Hon. But it is clear that the new football year will be decisive. It is necessary to prove that the decline was accidental and temporary, and the team will try to return at least to the top four. This summer, the team worked to strengthen the roster. The management acquired Matt Doherty (to replace Vertongen), Hojbjerg, and Hart. It seems to be not bad, but the same odious Arsenal acquired more expensive and stellar performers.
Everton also changed the coach during last season. And the management of the club surprised, having managed to lure another famous ex-Chelsea coach. After Napoli drove away Carlo Ancelotti, Liverpool’s team took advantage of the opportunity in time. Nevertheless, the Toffees took only 12th place. But they had good segments in the last tournament, hinting that they can add and finally compete for a place among the grandees. The management is holding a large-scale transfer campaign. They bought Allan from Napoli, and James Rodriguez will reunite with his favorite coach. They also bought Doucoure and loaned Tomori. And the purchases are likely to continue. For example, the manager asks to buy Irving Lozano from Naples. Well, Everton just has to improve its results. But can the Toffees dream of returning to the European cup zone?
Everton gained the last victory over Tottenham in 2012. In the last tournament, the Spurs tied in Liverpool (1-1) and won at home due to Keane's own goal scored in the first half. Of course, bookmakers consider Tottenham as the favorite because it will play at home. But let's note the pragmatism of both coaches and their desire to start the season with a victory. The variant with Under 2.5 goals scored suggests itself.
