Team news
Yerry Mina is likely to miss out having suffered a set-back in mid-week.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored off the bench against Brighton, but is unlikely to be in the XI.

Danny Rose is suspended and Serge Aurier’s spot is in doubt, meaning Spurs could rotate both full-backs.

Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela are both doubts, whilst Christian Eriksen is likely to be dropped.

Expected starting XI’s
Everton (4-3-3): Pickford; Sidibe, Holgate, Keane, Digne; Davies, Gomes; Walcott, Sigurdsson, Iwobi; Richarlison
Tottenham (4-4-2): Gazzaniga; Foyth, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies; Sissoko, Winks, Ndombele, Lo Celso; Kane, Son
