Writers Prediction League: Everton vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Michael Steele

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match at Everton.

Over Hull. Tottenham Hotspur is coming off a week where Spurs played the Tigers twice, earning key wins for league play as well as the Football League Cup. But the wins were ugly, relying on a handball and penalty kicks to advance past Hull. Wing play has been huge for Spurs, as Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andros Townsend have found a rich vein of form and led Tottenham.

Today's match sees Spurs travel to Liverpool to face Everton. Everton sits in 7th place, only one point behind Tottenham. The team has been led by Romelu Lukaku, as the young Belgian striker has scored five league goals for The Toffees. Leighton Baines remains arguably the best left back in the Premiership, while Kevin Mirallas has been a major creator in attacking midfield. And Gareth Barry has had a smashing debut at his new club, filling in ably for the departed Marouane Fellaini.

As for the Prediction League, only MCofA foresaw a 1-0 victory for Spurs last week, bringing him right into the title hunt. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

Mechanick: A tired Spurs team parks the bus. No goals for you, Lukaku. 0-0 Draw

Ryan: Stop trying to make fetch happen. 1-1 Draw.

Ashlock: I'm totally against the whole narrative that surround Spurs right now. I think AVB gets it right today. 2-0 Spurs

The Roosevelts: Spurs win 3-1 as everyone has a new found chemistry that can only be gotten when you've seen all your teammates piss their pants. Thanks Kyle Walker

Ed: 2-1 Everton LOL

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs. Metronome will ride again.

Uncle Menno: This is a time for optimism! And by that I mean that we'll only lose by one goal. 2-1 Everton.

MCofA: 1-0 Everton. We are all black cloud. Solidarity my brothers and sisters. Together, we can lose.

The Sleeper's Sleep: Do you want to know a secret? *Glances around* *Leans in* Everton's redesigned crest is very handsome. 2-2 Draw.

Lennon's Eyebrow: Everton will try and play football against us and that shall be their undoing. Spurs 2-0.

Skipjack: 1-1 Draw because did you know Lukaku is built like a linebacker? He's so powerful.
