Merson predicts the winner of the clash between Tottenham and Everton

Paul Merson has predicted that Tottenham will collect all three points during their Premier League clash against Everton on Saturday.

Spurs have been in good form during recent times, having won all but one of their past eight League games.

They did however show signs of struggle during their most recent game against West Ham and also took more than an hour to score against AFC Wimbledon during their FA Cup clash last weekend.

Everton meanwhile will head into the game as the underdogs having lost their previous last three games in all competitions.

Merson does not see the Toffees causing problems against Spurs and believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s side will go on to win the game comfortably.

“Spurs struggled at home to West Ham and it took them a while to break down AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup.” Merson told Sky Sports.

“But I think they will have too much for an Everton side who are going to sit back and play tight. It has worked for them in the past, but they don’t have enough pace on the counter to hurt Tottenham.”
