Tottenham will try to keep up with the top of the Premier League table when they host Everton on Saturday night.
The Spurs go into action this weekend four points behind leaders Arsenal and will try to close that gap before the Gunners, Chelsea and Manchester City all play on Sunday.
Antonio Conte’s side took a narrow 1-0 win over Brighton last Saturday and followed that up mid-week with a fine Champions League display against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Meanwhile, Everton saw their decent run ended last time by Manchester United.
After a tough start to the season, Frank Lampard’s Toffees had rallied for a 2-1 defeat at home to United.
Everton will also not have fond memories of this match, which was hammered 5-0 in north London last season.

Tottenham v Everton: Team News
Harry Kane has had a slight knock lately, but it will be good to start.
Richarlison is in doubt with a knee problem, while fellow winger Dejan Kulusevski has a hamstring problem, but both should be fine to at least make the squad.
Emerson Royal is still banned from Spurs.
Everton have more problems with defenders Nathan Patterson, Mason Holgate, Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey all out.
Anthony Gordon has been banned after his fifth yellow card of the season against United last weekend.
Andros Townsend will be sidelined with a knee injury.
Tottenham v Everton: What has been said?
Everton will face Richarlison next weekend, having sold him to Spurs for £60million in the summer to balance the books.
Lampard said: “I’m not surprised and I don’t know why the rest of the world should be surprised, whether it’s because he’s from Everton, I don’t know how glamorous that can be for some people. It shouldn’t be.
“He is a very talented player. Even when he was here he was always the number nine in Brazil or on the side and when you think about the competition for places he has in that team I think he is very respected in the football world.
“So maybe there were other things that some people weren’t so excited about. I have always found him a pleasure to work with.
“We know him very well, but his style was a bit unpredictable, that’s probably one of the big pluses about him, how he plays, he’s always a threat.
“We are aware of the threat, but we will have to try to nullify it.”
