• Spurs are expected to line up with Heung-min Son, Kane, Moura, and Alli in attack. Kane and Son have a huge impact on their attach, with them on the pitch they average 1.71 goals per game
  • Having Eric Dier in the team helps their goal scoring efforts massively too, with him in the starting XI we’ve seen Spurs average 1.74 goals per game. Dier is expected to partner Toby Alderweireld /Sanchez at the back
  • Spurs have a decent goalscoring record in the EPL under Mourinho, they have scored on average 1.65 goals per game. When playing at the lane however this average increases to 1.92 goals per game
  • Spurs recent home record against middle-third teams (Everton finished 12th) is impressive, in their last 10 they have won 7 and scored 2.1 goals per game.
  • As for Everton, their record against the Top 6 does not make for pretty reading. In their last 10 they are W0 D4 L6 with 2.2 goals conceded per game
  • Last season under Ancellotti, Everton travelled to a team in the Top 8 five times (Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, and Wolves) They lost all 5 of these games conceding on average 2.6 goals per game
  • Ancelotti hasn’t had much luck against Mourinho in his career either. He’s lost every meeting they’ve had since 2009
  • Last season Spurs averaged 1.89 goals per home game and hit 2+ in 12 of their 19 home games. Had it not been for their injuries last season this probably would have been higher. Kane missed 14 matches through injury and as I mentioned above his presence along with Son is huge.
  • Spurs made some smart acquisitions this summer, CM Hojbjerg and RB Doherty from Wolves. Doherty who is an excellent crosser of the ball should help massively in the final third and be an upgrade on Aurier
  • Everton have spent money this window, they brought in the out of favour Allan from Napoli, CM Doucouré from Watford, and James Rodriguez on a free from Real Madrid
  • Doucouré looks like a solid acquisition but I’m not too high on James or Allan even if they are household names. Allan was poor for Napoli last season and could barely get a start. As for James he hasn’t had a full season since 14-15 and seems to be in a rapid decline. I’m not sure it will be a smooth transition to the EPL for either.
