It has been a fortnight to forget for Wayne Rooney after being charged with drink driving but he’s expected to line up for Everton in what’s sure to be an epic clash. Tottenham will start as favourites but will need to improve if they want to take home any points from Goodison Park.
When: Sunday, September 10, 12am (AEST)
Where: Goodison Park
Wayne Rooney’s off-field dramas shouldn’t impact what will happen on the field.
It’s very difficult but things happen all the time in this business and the place of normality for players is on the field.
I don’t see this impacting how Everton will play.
Tottenham are consistent with what they do and with Harry Kane up front and good movement and penetration from midfield they certainly ask questions.
Everton are a very difficult team to play against though and make you work for everything.
Really good test for both teams here to show what they’re capable of this season.
KEY BATTLE: Son Heung-min V Phil Jagielka
Son has been a very good player and unsung in his performances for Spurs.
He’ll be up against it though with the very solid Jagielka.
Everton very stubborn at home and the defender can come out on top.
Everton have started off well and have shown they’ll be decent this season.
Spurs haven’t started the campaign off well and they need the result.
