Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton 01/13/2018 Premier League Preview, Odds & Predictions

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy insists the club will not be selling any of their star players this year as he looks to forge a title-challenging outfit.

The Spurs manager admitted that the club had to play its part in ensuring that the striker had no need to cast envious glances elsewhere or even choose to leave for a new challenge.

After a poor start to life away from White Hart Lane - albeit for 12 months - Tottenham have made Wembley their home away from home in impressive fashion. While Alli has scored five goals and provided six assists in the Premier League this season, Harry Kane who recently broke Alan Shearer's record of most goals in a calendar year has found the back of the net 18 times in 21 appearances.

A tempestuous night at Anfield witnessed a more progressive display from Everton than they offered during their visit in December, but it proved insufficient as a late goal burst their cup dreams for another year.

Tottenham Hotspur are now placed fifth in the league, 3 points behind the nearest Champions League spot now occupied by Liverpool.

After scoring twice in Tottenham's 3-0 FA Cup win over Wimbledon on Sunday, Kane was asked what the club needs to do to secure his long-term future.

Barca, having already used the Neymar fee to sign Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, might struggle to raise the cash.

The biggest flashpoint came towards the end of the first half when Mason Holgate reacted angrily to Roberto Firmino's criticism of him for a risky push into the boardings surrounding the pitch. They still have some way to go before they can rest easy, and following a draw at home against a struggling West Ham side, Spurs will need to win against the Toffees to keep ahead of the pack. Tosun is expected to feature in some capacity tonight and it will be interesting to see how he features on his debut for the Toffees.

Spurs now sit two points outside the top-four, and they can't afford to drop any more easy points in the race for Champions League spots.

Pochettino is not anxious by what rival clubs are doing and says the winter market is a hard one unless you are willing to spend a lot of money.

It was then suggested to Pochettino that he has said Harry Kane could stay at Spurs for his entire career. The Premier League is the only competition left to play for.

Whether it is David Beckham, Michael Owen, Thierry Henry, Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez or Coutinho, the Premier League's superstars always end up in Spain and Kane will be the next one in La Liga's sights.
