Tottenham face Everton at White Hart Lane on Sunday, March 5. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
This is Spurs’ toughest home test since beating Chelsea 2-0 on Jan. 4. Everton, after brushing aside Sunderland 2-0 last week, remain the top flight’s in-form team as the Toffees haven’t tasted defeat in nine matches.
If there’s a slight black mark on otherwise unblemished record since Christmas, it would be Everton’s away form. The Toffees have drawn three of four away from Goodison in recent weeks, all of which a team with European aspirations are expected to win. Everton dropped points to Hull, Stoke and Middlesbrough in those matches, with a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace interrupting the string of draws.
Tottenham don’t seem to care what team lines up against them at the Lane, the north Londoners winning eight on the trot at home. Leicester, in a 1-1 draw at the end of October, were the last team to take anything away from Spurs’ fortress. They’ve outscored their opponents 24-3 in those eight matches, which includes four consecutive clean sheets.
Kane had his way with Stoke last time out, notching a hat-trick and an assist in his team’s comprehensive 4-0 win. That hat-trick pole vaulted the Spurs world-class striker to the top of the scoring charts. He’s now level on 17 goals with Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
Lukaku has his four-goal performance against Bournemouth on Feb. 4 to thank for his share of the league’s goal scoring lead.
Kane, however, took a knock against Stoke and will be assessed prior to Sunday’s game. Both of Spurs first-choice center-backs, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, are also injury concerns going into the match.
The complexion of this match will change entirely if Kane and either, or both, center-backs fail their late fitness tests.

Spurs are unbeaten in eight matches against Everton, making the task at hand even more difficult for the Toffees. Look for that streak to remain intact. The only question is whether it will be in the form of a Spurs win or both teams leaving with a share of the spoils.
