Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
This Sunday, Everton are back in action at home against Tottenham Hotspur F.C. In their last 10 meetings against Spurs, Everton have six losses and four draws (yes, you read that right). The teams last played each other this past May in the last game of the season which resulted in a 2-2 draw. Everton’s last win against Spurs (and possibly one of my favorite Everton performances) came in a 2-1 thriller back in 2012. Check out the highlights from that match below. Here’s hoping for a similar result on Sunday. COYB!
