Everton manager Ronald Koeman said in his pre-match press conference that the Blues had no new injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

Muhamed Besic and Dominic Calvert-Lewin have both resumed training with the squad, while Yannick Bolasie remains out till 2018 at the least. The Blues have no suspensions to worry about either.

For Mauricio Pocchetino’s Spurs, the key trio of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane are all recovering from injuries and face late fitness tests before the game. Kane picked up a knee injury against Stoke City last weekend while Vertonghen came off as a precaution.

Alderweireld seems less likely to play with a groin strain, while Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are both out with knee and hip injuries respectively.

Tottenham will be looking for their ninth home win on the trot, which would be a Premier League record. Everton meanwhile are unbeaten in nine games and will try to maintain that streak. Spurs are currently the only unbeaten side at home in the Premier League this season with eleven wins in thirteen games.
