Spurs Under 21’s versus Everton: (match preview)

After recording a 2-2 draw with Leicester City (away) in their opening Premier League 2 fixture of the season on Monday evening, Wayne Burnett’s side host Everton at Stevenage’s Lamex Stadium on Friday evening, in the Premier League 2 (the game starts at 19:00pm). Spurs’ Under 23 side won against Everton at the same venue in this fixture last season, and the new Spurs Under 21 side will be hoping to repeat that this Friday. It was quite an even and end to end game against Leicester City, on Monday, and I think that a draw was the fair result. Everton finished in 11th place in the Premier League 2 Division One last season. Always a difficult side to face in the Premier League 2, Everton play good football and with players like Thomas Cannon and Charlie Whitaker, the Spurs defence will have to be alert to keep a clean-sheet against Everton. This will be another interesting game, and I would like to wish the Spurs side all the very best of luck for the match. 

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Keeley, Ashcroft, Muir, Fagan-Walcott, Cesay, Bowden (c), Craig, Mundle, John, Devine, Donley.

Subs from: Maguire, Sayers, Mathurin, Robson, Santiago.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 0-1.

My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.

My one to watch: Thomas Cannon (19). The Everton forward did well last season for the Everton Under 23 side, and in the Everton Under 21’s first game of this season he scored a goal and provided an assist in a 2-0 win against Blackburn Rovers.
