Everton continued their fine start to the season with a 2-0 win at Aston Villa , manager Roberto Martiinez saw his side go fourth in the table and seems to have installed some real confidence into the players as they look forward to a real battle against Tottenham on sunday at Goodison Park .
Tottenham had Roberto Soldado to thank as his late penalty gave them all 3 points against Hull , the 1-0 win moved them into 4th place in the table ...it was the fourth 1-0 win from Tottenham this season , manager Andre Villas-Boas was happy enough with the result but not with the home fans after apparently questioning their negative attitude after the game .
I have a ticket to watch this match, and I have to say I expect a very tough game. We are not playing convincingly in attack if I'm honest, I think a draw will be a decent result all things considered. Everton 1 Spurs 1.
I've got a sneaky feeling Everton will be too strong a unit for Spurs to break
down ,and with Lukaku in a scoring hot streak at the moment then it will be
an interesting encounter ...Of course Spurs should be winning this comfortably
if they harbour leanings towards a title tilt
Well, an extremely dominant display in the first half but no goals to show for all that possession. We really need to sort out that lack of supply to 'Bob' Soldado. Second half, Everton were the better team so I guess the draw is a fair result. Nine minutes of extra time did seem excessive but you get the feeling nobody was going to score if there was an extra 90 minutes of play.
I'd have taken a draw before the kick off so I'm reasonably happy with the result.
I've never been to Goodison before, getting there is pretty easy but getting back can be a bit of a mare. The traffic is horrendous and getting a bus back to Lime Street Station took forever. You have been warned if you find yourself in Toffees territory...
