Having had their slim hopes of Premier League glory all but ended by Manchester United on Sunday in a 3-1 defeat, Tottenham travel to a ground they have an impressive record at in recent years, Goodison Park.
Spurs have tasted defeat on just three of their last 19 visits to Everton and will be optimistic about extending that run with a priceless victory on Merseyside.
One player who will be eager to display his skills is Jermain Defoe, who is looking to stake his claim for a spot in the England squad for the European Championships this summer, and the former West Ham man has scored three in his last two games.
With reports surfacing that David Moyes and Harry Redknapp have a gentlemen’s agreement that Louis Saha will not play following his move to White Hart Lane from Everton, this could provide the perfect opportunity for the frontman to put himself in the frame.
Assuming he starts, the diminutive striker looks great value at 7/1 to score the first goal of the game, while he can be backed at 2/1 to score at any time against a club he has notched four goals against in his career to date.
Alternatively, backing Dutch midfielder Rafael van der Vaart to open proceedings for the side currently occupying third spot could prove fruitful, with the playmaker finding the net on both occasions when the sides met last season.
Van der Vaart looks good at 2/1 to score at any time, while he can be backed at a tempting 7/1 to score first, which is certainly worth considering given the fact that Tottenham have scored more goals in the first 15 minutes of games than any other Premier League club.

Everton won’t be a pushover, however, and Moyes’ side are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions, with their most recent home league outing ending in a 2-0 victory over the now departed Andre Villas-Boas and his Chelsea side.
In Argentine striker Denis Stracqualursi, the Toffees possess a striker who has scored in two of his last three games and he has been priced at 8/1 to find the net first.
As Arsenal begin to crank up the pressure on Spurs for third position with just four points now separating the clubs, this is a must-win for Redknapp and his players as they aim to bounce back from two successive league defeats.
