Writers Prediction League - Spurs vs. Everton

Clive Brunskill

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

It's officially squeaky bum time. Every game is do or die for Tottenham Hotspur, with just seven games remaining in the Premier League season. The team is sitting third in the table, just one point ahead of Arsenal and two ahead of Chelsea. Spurs are banged up, losing Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon, and William Gallas ahead of tomorrow's big game against sixth place Everton.

Everton are shorthanded themselves, with Kevin Mirallas injured and the combo of Fellani and Pienaar suspended. Nikica Jelavic will look to pick up the scoring load in Fellani and Mirallas' absence, while Seamus Coleman may pick up some of the creative duties in midfield. Leighton Baines looks to lead from defense yet again.

As for the Prediction League, perfect predictions had Mechanick and Petrilli battling down the stretch for the title. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

Name Score
Mechanick 24
Petrilli 24
Ashlock 21
Ryan 19
Uncle Menno 17
Kevin 16
Ed 15
The Roosevelts 14

This week's predictions:

Kevin: Sigh. 1-1 Draw

Mechanick: A whole lot of injuries lead to a whole lot of nothing. 0-0 Draw

Ryan: Hey, remember when Steven Pienaar played for Spurs? That was funny. 1-1 Draw

Ashlock: 3-1 Spurs. Why? Because f**k the narrative.

The Roosevelts: I'm with Kevin, because he's smart and stuff. 1-1 Draw

Ed: With both sides depleted by injury, this game could end up looking a lot like two limp handshakers trying to co-ordinate a greeting. Resultant score: 1-0 Spurs.

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs, because we still have SexJan

Uncle Menno: Bale and Lennon are out, but so are Pienaar, Fellaini, and Mirallas. I'd say they cancel each other out. A nervy 1-0 win for Tottenham as Dempsey slots one home with his ass.
