Everton host Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park on Sunday as the Lilywhites look to continue their fine form. 

The Toffees are looking to bounce back after a 3-1 away defeat to Manchester City last time out in order to leapfrog Wolves in seventh place. 

With the busy Christmas schedule in full swing now, can Spurs cope with their long list of injuries?

Spurs in fine form

Tottenham have enjoyed their best ever start to a Premier League campaign as they currently lie in third place on 39 points. 

Spurs' only defeat since the end of October came against their north London rivals on December 2. However, on Wednesday the Lilywhites sought their revenge beating Arsenal in the Carabao Cup quarter-final. 

From beating Chelsea 3-1 to grinding out a 1-0 victory against Burnley at home - Spurs have found a way this season to show a new found resilience. 

As for Sunday's hosts, Everton have not won a game in this month of December.

"I don't speak about inside of the club. I talk about the perception outside.
