Following a renaissance over the weekend which handed the Boys in Blue a win, they will play host to struggling Tottenham at the Goodison Park. The match is scheduled for 3rd November, with kickoff at 19:30 GMT.
The Toffees are having a bad run in the run in the Premier League, currently 2 points clear of the relegation zone. Despite the investments in the buildup to the new season, it seems coach Marco Silva is still trying to find his best team selection.
Coach Mauritio Pochettino on the other hand continued with his run of unimpressive runs following the 2-1 defeat to title contenders Liverpool. Despite a 5-1 Champions League win, Tottenham still struggle to come to winning ways in the League.
Both teams enter the game with a series of defeats in their previous EPL matches. Everton will be depending on the momentum after the win over Watford to push them from relegation. Tottenham will be looking to secure their top 6 slot after falling to the 11th position. It is bound to be a battle to regain momentum.
