John Barnes states his prediction for Everton v Tottenham

John Barnes is expecting a draw between Tottenham and Everton at Goodison Park

John Barnes is tipping Everton to hold Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs head into the game looking to continue their recent good form in the top flight and close the gap to leaders Arsenal back to four points by claiming victory on Merseyside.

Tottenham have been touted as possible outsiders to win the Premier League title this season, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men having only lost twice in the top flight so far this term.

Everton, meanwhile, head into the game looking to kick off 2016 with a victory after a run of just three wins in their last 10 Premier League games.

However, Liverpool legend Barnes is tipping the two sides to share the spoils on Merseyside in Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash.

Barnes wrote on his blog for Titanbet: “Everton’s defence has let them down of late, but they’re playing well.

“Spurs are a good attacking side, so I can see goals, but ultimately a draw. The goal-scorers [will be] Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane.”
