Everton and Tottenham enter Friday's match as two teams with Champions League hopes rapidly fading away. Both sides need three points from this match to keep their flickering hopes of a top four finish alive. Everton currently sit in eight place on 48 points a point behind seventh place Spurs albeit with a match in hand. A win from Spurs would see them head into the weekend even on points with sixth place Liverpool and only three points out of fourth place.

What to Know

Both sides are limping into this matchup. Spurs have only won one out of their last four matchups, and enter Friday's match fresh off blowing a one goal lead to Manchester United and losing 3-1, a result which followed a terrible 2-2 draw against Newcastle the week before. Similarly, Everton have not won a match since March 4th when they beat relegation threatened West Bromwich Albion, a stretch of matches in which three out of four matches were against bottom half of the table opponents. A loss against Burnley and draws against Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion simply aren't good enough results to contend close to the European spots. They need to turn their season around fast or midtable beckons.
