Tottenham Hotspur welcome Everton to White Hart Lane on Saturday 29 August for their second home game of the season.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 5.30pm BST. Live TV coverage is available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Catch the highlights on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.20pm BST.


Tottenham come into this game on the back of a disappointing result against Leicester City, and are yet to win a game this season. They lost their first game of the season to Manchester United and have followed that up with two consecutive draws.

Mauricio Pochettino has called on his team to focus and remain vigilant for all 90 minutes, as he believes that it was team error that led to them dropping points at the King Power Stadium last weekend. The Argentine has a fully fit squad barring Christian Eriksen, who is out with a knee injury.

Harry Kane is yet to open his account for the season, after a breakthrough season last campaign, and Pochettino will hope that his top marksman can find the net sooner rather than later.

Meanwhile, Everton have made a better start than their Saturday afternoon rivals, and are currently in seventh place on the Premier League table. Their away form is what got them the three points against Southampton, their only win of the season thus far, and this will give them confidence for their trip to White Hart Lane.

Roberto Martinez has been pre-occupied with talks over Chelsea's move for John Stones and he has now made it clear that the defender is not for sale. Even though the player handed in a transfer request which was immediately rejected, he is set to start against Spurs.

What Managers Say

Mauricio Pochettino: "This is not about signing a player. This is about competing much better and this is our focus now. Never in football can you switch off for one second - after it happened at Leicester there was a mistake, we conceded a goal - and in the Premier League and a professional team like us we need to avoid that."

Roberto Martinez [on Stones facing Spurs]: "John Stones will be ready [to play against Spurs] because he is in the perfect environment. It's been an emotional time for everyone but John is one of our most loved assets and he'll be ready. The chairman was really strong yesterday, he's put things very, very clear."
