Tottenham dropped into 6th Place at the weekend as Sherwood's 4-4-2 Tottenham could only manage a 1-1 draw against Hull, who recorded their first point and goal of 2014. Since the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, Spurs have taken 17 points from a possible 24 including wins over Manchester United and Southampton in the top half, though suffered a hefty 5-1 defeat in their last home game to Manchester City having been reduced to 10 men.
Aston Villa are the only top half team to have gained fewer points at home in the Premier League this season than Tottenham. Tottenham have only earned 18 points from their current total of 44 at home and have a negative goal difference due to heavy defeats by West Ham, Manchester City and Liverpool. Tottenham have scored in each of their last 8 Premier League fixtures (Since Tim Sherwood took over) which is the 4th best run in the league behind Liverpool (14), Manchester City (12) and Manchester United (9).
Possible Line ups
Everton go into this game on the back of a fantastic comeback last weekend at home to Aston Villa. Everton turned around a 1-0 half time deposit to win the game late on with Naismith slotting home before Mirallas unleashed an incredible 30 yard free-kick to record an 8th home win of the season. In a weekend where Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United dropped points, Everton jumped into 5th place, just 2 points behind Liverpool. It was the first time Everton have completed the double over Aston Villa since 1987. It's the first time Everton have beaten Aston Villa at Goodison Park in the Premier League since 2006.
Everton are on course for 71 points this season, should the points per game figure continue (it won't). Everton are projected to gain 26 points from the remaining 14 games. This would mean Everton had gained 34 points since the turn of the year which would be Everton's third highest since the Premier League began. Everton haven't kept a clean sheet on the road in their last 5 matches and are 3 matches without an away win.
