Tottenham's victory over Hull City was their 5th win of the season. Tottenham have now gone six premier league matches without drawing a game (W3 L3) since the 1-1 draw in the North London Derby. Tottenham have currently scored in seven matches in a row which is only bettered by Chelsea (12) & Manchester City (9). However, they've also gone five matches without keeping a clean sheet which is a run exceeded only by Crystal Palace (6) and Stoke (6). Three of Tottenham's five wins this season have come due to injury time goals (West Ham 1-0, Aston Villa 2-1, Hull 2-1).
Interestingly, Tottenham have played at home following their European fixture for all six occasions this season with that trend set to continue at the weekend. However, they've failed to take advantage of this fortune with just 6 points from a possible 18 including defeats to three teams in the bottom half of the table. Everton have taken an unimpressive 4 points from 12 in their fixtures, though have shown improvement through the season. Everton have won their Europa League group whilst Tottenham are currently top of their group having secured qualification.
Possible Line ups
Everton went five matches unbeaten in the Premier League with a 2-1 home win against West Ham last time out with only Chelsea (12) & Newcastle (6) currently on longer unbeaten streaks. Everton have four points less than at this stage last season yet are still only two points from 4th spot which is only one point less than at this stage last season. Everton have kept just two clean sheets in their last 21 visits to London (0-0 Crystal Palace 09/11/13 & 0-0 Arsenal 16/04/13). Only four teams have taken more points from away fixtures in the Premier League this season than Everton (9).
There really isn't much to read from this table (but I made it anyway). Chelsea, Southampton and West Ham appear to be the biggest movers over the last couple of months whilst Newcastle were so poor for the first half of the year (16/57 points) that their rise is unnoticeable. Liverpool are falling down the yearly table whilst most other teams are where you'd expect them to be. Hull City are also stalling at the bottom but it's the three promoted teams who currently occupy the relegation places in the regular season, fortunately for Steve Bruce.
