New Signing Set To Start: 4-2-3-1 Everton Predicted Lineup vs Tottenham Hotspur

A new-look Everton side will take on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The Toffees narrowly lost when they travelled to Spurs’ stadium last time around, and it could be a close game once again on Sunday. They have added quality players in midfield over the last few weeks and could be a surprise package this season, under Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan have moved to Goodison Park from Watford and Napoli, respectively, while the big signing for the Toffees this summer has been that of James Rodriguez, who made the switch from Real Madrid.

Let’s take a look at how the Everton team may line-up against Tottenham on Sunday.


Team News

Mason Holgate suffered an injury in Everton’s friendly against Preston North End, and he may not be fit to feature. Yerry Mina has been passed fit by the manager and should start.

New signings Doucoure and Rodriguez may not be ready to start this weekend and might make appearances later on. Allan is expected to make the team though.

The likes of Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Fabian Delph will not be fit for this weekend’s fixture.


Jordan Pickford should play between the sticks for Everton against Tottenham.


At the back, we could see Yerry Mina and Michael Keane start in the Everton lineup. Teenager Jarrad Branthwaite will have to wait for his chance.

It is much more straightforward in the full-back positions. Captain Seamus Coleman should start at right-back, while Lucas Digne should start on the opposite flank in the Everton lineup.

Jonjoe Kenny and Niels Nkounkou are options in the full-back positions.


Ancelotti has revealed that Allan is likely to be involved in the game against Spurs, and with Gbamin injured and Doucoure potentially not ready, the Brazilian could start in the Everton lineup.

We could see the new signing play alongside Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes, who was passed fit by the manager despite suffering an injury on international duty.

Tom Davies could be an option off the bench for Ancelotti.

James Rodriguez may not be ready for this game, hence Gylfi Sigurdsson could play in the No. 10 role, or as part of a midfield three if the manager opts for a 4-3-3.


Richarlison looked good in the pre-season games and he could start on the left for the Toffees, with Theo Walcott playing on the opposite side in the Everton lineup.

Bernard and Alex Iwobi are other options out wide for Ancelotti.

While Dominic Calvert-Lewin should start up front.
