Welcome back! After three long months and the so-called "Summer of Soccer", real football has returned. For this new-look Everton side, there is optimism aplenty. Under new ownership and a well-regarded manager, the Blues are looking to rebound from two disappointing seasons and threaten for a spot in Europe once again.

Just a run down of the changes for Everton over the summer:

  • Ronald Koeman made the move from Southampton to take over for the sacked Roberto Martinez as manager.
  • John Stones has finally been sold, going to Manchester City for a fee reported to be around £47.5 million
  • There have been three senior signings to date, goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg (Fulham), midfielder Idrissa Gueye (Aston Villa) and center back Ashley Williams (Swansea City).
  • But some old faces have left: goalkeeper Tim Howard, right back Tony Hibbert, winger Steven Pienaar and midfielder Leon Osman.

For Tottenham, they had what could be regarded as their best season ever in the Premier League. They finished third with 70 points and lost just six games. If they could convert some of their 13 draws into wins they may be legitimate title challengers. Spurs have added to their attacking prowess, bringing in Victor Wanyama from Southampton and Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar.

This fixture last year led to two draws; a 0-0 tie at White Hart Lane in August and a 1-1 score at Goodison Park in January with the goals coming from Aaron Lennon and Dele Alli. Those are results that I’m sure Everton would be happy with once again, but Spurs will be looking for more.
