Ex-Everton midfielder Graham Stuart believes that his former side can secure a win against Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Everton are currently four points adrift of Chelsea in fourth in the hunt for Champions League football and, after Spurs’ exertions against Basel during their midweek 2-2 draw in the Europa League quarter-finals, Stuart feels that there is an opportunity to narrow the gap.
Spurs lost Gareth Bale, William Gallas and Aaron Lennon to injury against the Swiss side, although Everton will be without Steven Pienaar and Marouane Fellaini through suspension.
Stuart told talkSPORT: “It’s going to have to be a big afternoon for the Toffees because Tottenham are in some decent form.
“They’ve got a tough game of their own against Basel so hopefully they will be struggling a little bit leg-wise on Sunday and Everton can take advantage.
“Irrespective of what happens, Everton have had another terrific season.”
