Everton at Tottenham: Team News and Lineups

Tony Marshall

It is some sort of Champions League 6-pointer if you listen to the media. Everton takes on Tottenham in an attempt to keep pace with a Liverpool side that absolutely obliterated Arsenal on Saturday. Spurs have been in decent form as well, and this one is going to take a moment of brilliance to be special.

To use a cheap segue, Seamus Coleman is expected to return to the lineup after his injury layoff, and with Sylvain Distin and Ross Barkley back last week, Everton looks to be returning to full strength.

This match will be an interesting one, Leighton Baines has been contained by Spurs in previous matches, but with Coleman also likely to get forward, their defense will have to adjust to two marauding fullbacks.

Up top we expect Steven Naismith to get the start, and it will be interesting to see what he does. Hopefully a goal or two won't require us waiting until the substitutes are introduced to the field.

Lineups will be posted when they are released, until then hang out down below and join us to discuss this big match.
