Preview: Tottenham v Everton

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to build on an impressive performance last time out when they welcome an in-form Everton outfit to White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Spurs suffered a blip in form in the middle of February, but have recovered well in the last couple of weeks culminating in a mammoth 4-0 win over Stoke City.

Striker Harry Kane scored a hat-trick against the Potters, incredibly it was his third treble in his last nine games for the Lilywhites and the correlation between him playing well and the north London club getting positive results is undeniable.

Everton will undoubtedly have a plan to shut the England international down and Spurs will need a Plan B if they succeed.

Fortunately for the hosts, 20-year-old Dele Alli is in the form of his life, contributing 14 goals from midfield already this season.

The Toffees look a completely different side from the one that was struggling at the start of the season. They are currently on a nine-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, which has seen them climb to seventh.

They will have designs on a place higher up the table and will see the match against second-place Spurs as the perfect chance to show they belong among the top club's in the league.

In team news, both Kane and Jan Vertonghen look likely to be fit for Spurs after injury scares in midweek, while Toby Alderweireld faces a late fitness test.

For the visitors, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is available for selection after a two-month layoff with an ankle injury.
