Spurs claimed a hard-fought 2-1 win over Watford courtesy of Heung-Min Son’s late goal, while Marco Arnautovic’s stoppage-time penalty condemned Everton to a 4-3 reverse at the hands of Stoke City.
Roberto Martinez’s men, though, can be backed at 13/8 (2.63) with Paddy Power to bounce back by picking up all three points from this match, while Spurs are also available at 13/8 (2.63) with the odds compilers to pick up a fourth successive Premier League victory by coming out on top in Merseyside.
Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to back either side to win the match at 8/1 (9.0) in what looks a close contest.
With little to separate the two sides, draw backers may well be tempted by the 12/5 (3.40) quote from Paddy Power for this match to end in stalemate.
Both sides will be determined to start 2016 in a positive fashion and this promises to be a thrilling clash at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.
Everton have found the net in each of their last 12 competitive fixtures in all competitions with Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku in particularly fine form - the 22-year-old has notched nine goals in his last eight appearances for the Toffees.
However, defensive deficiencies are sure to be a major concern for Roberto Martinez ahead of the visit of Spurs, given that his side have conceded no fewer than 12 goals in their last six Premier League matches.
Tottenham have found the net in all but one of their last 14 matches in all competitions and, with that in mind, it is little surprise that Paddy Power offer just 4/7 (1.57) that both sides find the target here, while the same firm go 8/11 (1.72) that this match produces three or more goals.
Everton have won just two of their last seven Premier League fixtures on home soil, while Spurs are unbeaten in their last eight top flight fixtures away from White Hart Lane and, so, the juicy 7/2 (4.50) quote for the north Londoners to come out on top in a game in which both teams score certainly carries some appeal here.
However, better value may lie in backing more than three or more goals to be scored at 15/8 (2.88) with the same firm and it is this price that is recommended to punters ahead of Sunday’s showdown.
The selection would have landed in four of the last five fixtures at Goodison Park and it could be goals galore once again on Merseyside when these two sides clash in what looks likely to be an explosive encounter.
