15/2 Tottenham are 15/2 with PaddyPower to beat Everton 2-1
The Belgian returned to the side for the first time in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Hull City since he picked up the problem in a 2-1 win at Fulham in early December.

Spurs sit sixth in the Premier League table, three points adrift of Liverpool in fourth place, and are set to welcome Everton - one point ahead of them in the race for the Champions League - on Sunday, with Vertonghen keen to "bounce back".

"We have to bounce back in an important game against Everton," the 26-year-old told the club's official website. "We have to be ready for that.

"I want to finish the season strongly now.

"Hull was my first game in two months. I don't suppose you can expect to win everything and play every ball to the right player in the first game but I'm back and getting stronger."
