Everton come into this game after a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park in the last league fixture. On-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku gave Roberto Martinez's men the lead in the second half before Leon Osman killed off the game.

The Toffees have won three of their last five games in all competitions and sit seventh in the Premier League table with 18 points from nine games.

Meanwhile, Spurs enter this fixture after a dramatic 8-7 spot-kick victory over Hull City in the midweek Capital One Cup fixture. Spurs have lost only one of their last five games in all competitions, keeping three clean sheets in the process. They sit sixth in the table with 19 points from nine games.

Victory for either side in this fixture would put the winning team into the top four, ahead of Manchester City.

What the Managers say

Roberto Martinez: "I'm convinced that Antolin is ready [to return to full fitness] now. Earlier on in the season he had two or three setbacks and you're concerned if you're going to find the final solution to get him back to his best. Now he's 100 per cent on the road to be back to his best."

Andre Villas-Boas: "We've spoken about (last year's) result as the deciding factor for us not making it into the Champions League because everything changed quite dramatically. It serves us as a lesson to be kept aware of and it's not something we want to see again."
