Tottenham manager Pochettino quells Dele Alli injury fears

Tottenham manager Pochettino quells Dele Alli injury fears

"We hurt them twice, but it was just a shame we conceded the goal that doesn't allow us to take the three points". In an open game I'd fancy the away side to outscore the hosts, making the 3/1 about a Bournemouth win too big to miss. The home side worked the ball through a large hole in the Blues' back line that put Erik Lamela into a unsafe position but he was bundled over by Gomes a couple of yards outside the box, setting Eriksen up to rap home the equaliser.

Everton haven't won away at Tottenham since November 2008.

It's also a game that literally has nothing riding on it for Maurizio Sarri's men.

He capped off a fine performance with a sublime free-kick which levelled the game at 2-2 and guaranteed Tottenham Champions League football for next season.

"Unbelievable, I want to congratulate my players, they are superheroes", Pochettino told reporters. According The Mirror, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are ready to move for Richarlison, who is valued at around £70million - £30m more than Everton paid for him last summer. Leicester were excellent in their previous home game when beating Arsenal 3-0 and I fancy them quite strongly to pick up another three points.

When talking about heroics then it doesn't get much better than what Liverpool did to Barcelona on Tuesday night and Tottenham's miracle comeback against Ajax 24 hours later.

Given Tottenham's strength and the manner in which they would proceed to overrun Everton in midfield at times in the first half, gifting them a fourth-minute goal felt as though it had ensured another torrid afternoon against Mauricio Pochettino's men.

A points haul of 98 points is the second best in Premier League history, only behind the 100 points they accumulated last season. Those regulations restrict teams from both taking on too much debt and not spending more than they bring in.

The first half played out without further changes in Spurs' new stadium, with Champions League finalists Tottenham ahead on the scoreboard. They then had a gruelling game where they put in a huge amount of effort, and it all ended with a very emotional victory.

"The ones who played, did well but it was not good enough".

"At this moment, he has had nothing new to say to me until now". Never mind the fact that Harry Kane is injured and Son Heung-min is suspended.

Form wise it's not looking positive for Spurs either.

Although there has been criticism surrounding Everton manager Marco Silva, former Southampton and Manchester United midfielder Schneiderlin thinks this late-season form offers hope for the 2019-20 campaign.

Tottenham have lost seven home games in all competitions this season - they last lost more at home in a single campaign in 2007-08 (8).
