Two sides who were poor last year go head to head on the opening weekend as Tottenham entertain Everton.
Tottenham finished sixth last term and as a result won’t be in the Champions League for the first time since 2016.
Jose Mourinho has made solid if not spectacular signings thus far, with Matt Doherty and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg arriving from Wolves and Southampton respectively.
Carlo Ancelotti has been able to convince two of his former players to reunite with the Italian at Everton, with James Rodriguez and Allan joining the club.
They should easily be able to build on an awful 2019-20 season that saw them finish outside of the top ten!
Everton’s recent record against Tottenham has been nothing other than woeful!
Spurs are unbeaten since 2012 against the Toffees, winning five of the last seven, scoring 20 goals in the process.
The last meeting between the pair was closer though, with Spurs needing a Michael Keane own goal to secure all three points back in July.
Last five Premier League meetings
Tottenham 1 Everton 0 – 06/07/20

Tottenham 4 Everton 0 – 13/01/18
Giovani Lo Celso is a doubt for Tottenham ahead of their season opener, however the rest of the squad are fit.
Harry Kane didn’t have much of a pre-season, but will surely start here.
Two of James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure are likely to make debuts for Everton.
Mason Holgate and Andre Gomes are both injury doubts, however the latter should be okay.
