The last game that the Spurs played ahead of international break was versus the Toffees and that was a scoreless draw.
Everton is not that bad a team and a draw against them is not the most disappointing result ever for Tottenham, but, coming out of White Hart Lane post that game, most of the fans were bitterly disappointed.
It was the 4th match in a row in this Premier League that Tottenham’s attack just looked powerless.
Mauricio Pochettino’s formation in that Everton game had three players in the attacking role in the midfield, but, the penetration was still missing.
The pressure was being applied by that trio, but, the Everton defence had them covered easily and that was because there was no real speed at the flanks.
