Everton vs Tottenham
Dwight McNeil averages 1.46 shots p/90.
He has registered 2 or more shots in 5 of his last 6 appearances, with the blip being just 1 shot against Arsenal at the Emirates.
He has been a different player under Dyche, having played 707 of 720 minutes of football, and registering at least 1 shot in each oh his appearances under the new boss.
At home, Everton average 13.8 shots p/90 under the new manager.
Abdoulay Doucoure commits 1.25 fouls p/90, and has received 5 bookings this season.
He has committed at least 1 foul in all of his last 5 games, at a rate of 1.80 fouls per game.
He is up against Pierre-Emile Hojberg
and Oliver Skipp in the centre of the park who draw 1.08 and 1,25 fouls p/90 respectively.
He’ll also have the likes of Son Heung-Min cutting in off the left who draws an additional 1.20 fouls p/90.
James Tarkowski I always think is undervalued for a foul for Everton. He commits 1.1 fouls p/90 and has received 6 bookings this season.
He has committed at least 1 foul in 9 of his last 10 games, at a rate of 1.60 fouls per game.
He’s also committed 2 or more fouls in 3 of his last 4 outings.
Up against Harry Kane who draws 1.44 fouls p/90 and attempts 2.88 dribbles in that time frame.
It’ll be a great battle both in the air and on the ground, with Kane likely to win free kicks both in jumps as well as during hold up play.
Skipp has the unduly task of dealing with two foul drawing kings in the middle of the park. Idrissa Gueye and Amadou Onana draw 1.96 and 1.79 fouls p/90 respectively.
Given he himself already averages 1.53 fouls p/90, he’s not the man to look at to contain the Everton midfield without some sort of foul play.
The England midfielder has committed at least 1 foul each of his last 4 and 6 of his last 7 games in all competitions, including 3 a piece against Wolves and AC Milan.
He’s been given the responsibility of replacing the injured Rodrigo Bentancur who puts in a huge amount of fouls, and covers a vast amount of the pitch.
