Tottenham vs Everton: Premier League LIVE at Wembley

Saturday’s Premier League programme concludes with an intriguing match at Wembley as Tottenham take on Everton.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side sit fifth at the start of play and will hope to push into the top four with another positive result against an Everton side who have slipped of late following a bright start under Sam Allardyce.

Join MATTHEW SMITH for all the action as it unfolds in this 5.30pm kick-off.

A ‘brave’ move?

Sam Allardyce has just been speaking on BT Sport, saying he has been ‘brave’ to throw Cenk Tosun straight into the starting lineup today.

Surely when you sign a £27m striker, you start him whenever he is fit?

PIC: The man of the moment

Cenk Tosun is making his English football debut at Wembley. Not a bad location to make his bow.

First start for Cenk Tosun

The £27million striker, signed from Besiktas, is straight into the Everton side today.

He is one of six changes from the New Year’s Day defeat at home to Manchester United – both centre backs, Michael Keane and Ashley Williams, are out, with Jonjoe Kenny and Phil Jagielka brought in.

Tom Davies, Morgan Schneiderlin, Nicola Vlasic and Oumar Niasse are also out; James McCarthy, Idrissa Gueye, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Tosun come in.

One change for Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino makes only one alteration from Spurs’ last Premier League match – a 1-1 draw at Wembley against West Ham – Mousa Dembele replaces Moussa Sissoko.

The likes of Michel Vorm, Kieran Trippier, Victor Wanyama and Fernando Llorente revert to the bench after FA Cup duty against AFC Wimbledon last week.


#THFC: Lloris (C), Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Son, Dele, Kane.

Top four pressure

A win for Spurs would put them level on points with fourth placed Liverpool, who host runaway leaders Manchester City tomorrow.

A 5-0 win for Tottenham, incidentally, would put them into the top four.

Big Sam blip

Sam Allardyce has steadied the ship at Everton after their abysmal start to the season under Ronald Koeman – there is no longer the threat of relegation, now a fight for the Europa League places.

However, things have been tougher of late – no win in four in the league, and knocked out the FA Cup by rivals Liverpool.

Can they turn things around at Wembley today? Allardyce never got to manage there as England boss – can he get a win with the Toffees?
