Tottenham start life without Antonio Conte tonight at Everton’s Goodison Park and need at least a point to get back into the game Premier League‘s top four. tracks are currently fifth but could benefit from Manchester United’s loss to Newcastle in their first game under the interim management of Cristian Stellini.
The Italian already impressed when he replaced Conte, but now the pressure is really on. Stellini face a battle to get Spurs over the line in the race for Champions League qualification and anything other than a Merseyside victory against an Everton team currently in the bottom three would be a huge disappointment.
Spurs went into the international break after a disappointing draw at Southampton, but it is hoped that Conte’s departure will lift the mood somewhat. Follow all the action with Standard Sport’s dedicated match blog, Dan Kilpatrick will provide expert analysis from the ground up!
