There will be a fresh feel about Tottenham Hotspur when they return to action on Monday, as the North London club will be playing their first match since the departure of Antonio Conte. Spurs will be looking for a second win in three when they travel to Goodison to take on Everton.
Before Betting On Everton vs Tottenham
It has been a busy couple of weeks for Tottenham, despite the fact that they haven’t played a match since March 18. The decision was made by the board to relieve Antonio Conte of his duties during the international break, with Cristian Stellini tasked with guiding the team until a permanent successor is found.
Tottenham come into this round of fixtures sitting fourth in the Premier League standings, but they could drop to fifth before taking to the field at Goodison Park on Monday. Spurs have won three of their previous five matches, but a damaging draw against Southampton before the international break appears to highlight their clear short comings in the race for a Champions League finish this term. Spurs blew a 3-1 lead on the road, before having to settle for a point.
Everton’s home form will be key to their chances of survival this season, but they come into this match in a solid position. They are currently 15th, but they remain just two points clear of the relegation places. The Toffees have gone three without defeat having into this weekend, but two of their matches over that period have ended in draws.
However, positives would have been taken from their display at Stamford Bridge in the previous round of matches, as they battled back to earn a 2-2 draw. The game-saving goal was scored with just a minute of the 90 remaining, as Ellis Simms scored his first Premier League goal.

It had become clear that the Tottenham players weren’t playing for Conte, and the Italian’s dismissal could lead to a better performance on Monday. We could see Spurs claiming maximum points on the road, with Harry Kane finding the back of the net.
