Everton vs Tottenham LIVE: Premier League team news, line-ups and more today


Antonio Conte arrives at Goodison Park

Tottenham Hotspur begin their new era in the Premier League today as manager Antonio Conte takes charge for the first time in a domestic setting, as they travel to Everton. The Italian boss oversaw a narrow win in the Europa League in midweek but his primary focus will be on improving league matters, with Spurs 10th after four defeats in their last six under former boss Nuno.

It won’t be routine against Everton though, with Rafa Benitez having overseen some good results already this season for the Toffees, though a recent drop-off sees them 11th after three straight defeats of their own.

Victory for either team will propel them into the top five or six, depending on results elsewhere across the rest of the weekend. Follow all the live updates from Everton vs Tottenham below:

Everton vs Tottenham live updates and build-up

Doubtless we’ll have plenty of Conte and Spurs chat as we approach kick-off, so let’s focus on the home team first.

No Doucoure, no Calvert-Lewin, no recent wins: Rafa Benitez is under a bit of a cloud for the first time really since the initial furore (and fume, in some cases) died down over his actual appointment. Those two players are utterly crucial to the plan and the midfielder in particular was excellent early on this season, but it’s a chance for Delph instead – his last league start was 11 months ago and his last full 90 in the league was one year and one week ago.

Given the expectation that Spurs will be a lot more energetic than they have been this term, it’s a big ask to step in and produce a huge performance, but that’s what the Toffees need to escape their recent slump.

Just one win in six in all competitions has contributed to them dropping into the bottom half of the league table.

Conte will give Dele Alli chance to shine at Tottenham

“I remember very well when we played against Tottenham in the past, specifically one game when we lost after 13 wins in a row and Dele scored twice.

“But this is the past. Now is there is a present and for sure Dele is a player that has great potential, physically he is strong and very good.

“For sure I give him the possibility to show he has talent, at the same time when I pick the starting XI I do it because I think they can bring the team to win, the same when I make changes during the game.”
