Everton

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

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.

Seems we've both played a lot of the same teams so far this season. The same results against Villa and Hull, but we beat West Ham away while they lost to West Ham at home. We beat Chelsea at home while they could only manage a draw.

This is a huge game for us. If we can find a way to win it, I'd expect us to beat Palace in the following game and then we can be really be taken seriously as possible Top 4 contenders. Bit worried about losing the battle in the middle of the park against Paulinho and Sandro/Dembele. Going to need massive performances from McCarthy and Barry.

They seem to really struggle to score. Hope we can stay tight at the back and continue this trend. Can see us winning 1-0 or 2-1.

This will be a real test. Very difficult to score against these and they strong players all over the park and good squad depth.

Not convinced by most of their signings so far but Paulinho is a boss and will be difficult to handle.

Baines will probably be up against Townsend which could be tough as he can struggle with pacy wingers. Lukaku should be able to bully Dawson around though and I think Distin and Jags should be able to handle Soldado.

2-1 to us - Baines Pen to win it.

Biggest test so far i recon, more so than Chelsea and City as they 'should' finish above us anyway, whereas Spurs are one of the ones we may battle for Europe.

It will be a great atmosphere im sure and i think we will nick a win.

Another team that we've got a pretty appalling PL record against; hopefully we can continue our improvement in this regard as with Villa last weekend!

We've got a great record in recent years. Seem to remember beating them on their own patch a few times.

I think it will be a good open game.

Tough one this, Spurs have been fortunate with penalty decisions going there way. I think we can squeeze a win out here. Jelavic to get the winner. 1-0

Yes, we've won the last 3 meetings at home as well.

It's still appalling overall which makes you realise just how bad it was prior to the past few seasons!

These are there for the taking and I think we'll do them. I've seen them a few times this season and they look toothless so as long as we turn up I fancy us.
