Spurs v Everton rescheduled

The original game at White Hart Lane, which was set to take place

on the opening weekend of the season, had to be called off in the

wake of rioting in London. Metropolitan Police could not hand back

Tottenham High Road in time for the council to complete a clean-up

operation, meaning both sides had to wait to begin their Premier

League campaigns. The White Hart Lane match has now been rearranged

for Wednesday January 11, kicking off at 7.45pm. Following the

postponement of their clash with Everton, Spurs suffered

back-to-back defeats against Manchester United and Manchester City

in their opening two league games. But they have since embarked on

an eight-match unbeaten run to climb to fifth in the table. Everton

have struggled this term and are currently hovering precariously

above the relegation zone, just a point outside the bottom three.

Both sides will view the rescheduled game at White Hart Lane as an

opportunity to pick up vital points, while the reverse fixture at

Goodison Park will be played on March 10.
