Everton's 2-0 victory away to Aston Villa last Saturday means that Robert Martinez has now accumulated Everton's second highest point total after 9 games in the Premier League era. David Moyes has only had more which came in our record highest finish in 04/05. However, Walter Smith's record just goes to show a fast start can mean very little in the grand scheme of things.
Should Everton win their upcoming two fixtures against Tottenham and Crystal Palace then Martinez will hold the record for most points after 11 games.
Injury wise, there isn't much change for Everton with Antolin Alcaraz
still a while away from returning and Darron Gibson
is enduring a long term Knee injury. Johnny Heitinga
and Apostolos Vellios
also have knocks.
Tottenham currently lie 1 point above Everton in the league and have had 3 penalties already in their 9 league games. Theses have resulted in 1-0 victories against Crystal Palace, Swansea and most recently Hull City. No team has had more penalties this season, however last season, they didn't receive a single penalty along with Swansea City.
Despite some poor performances, Tottenham have 19 points which is joint the most they've ever had after 9 games in the premier league era. Villa-Boas broke Tottenham's points record last season and if starts are anything to go by he'll have a chance again.
Should Tottenham take 4 points against Everton and Newcastle then Villas-Boas will hold the points record after 11 games
Spurs are set to have a full squad to choose from when they travel to Goodison Park with Younes Kaboul
, Etienne Capoue
and Danny Rose
all set to return from injury.
This will be the 166th meeting between the sides in history.
