Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino: 'No rush to make January signings'

Dane Eriksen, 25, kicked off Spurs' spree of new agreements last season when he signed a £70,000-per-week deal that runs until 2020.

Defender Michael Keane is still sidelined due to a gash to his foot which has reopened an old wound and is taking longer than expected to heal, while midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye (hamstring) is also out.

Guy Mowbray: "Amidst criticism of Everton's seemingly uninspiring approach of late, Sam Allardyce is hopeful that Wembley can lift his players to improvement".

"After an autumn wobble, Spurs are winning games again and scoring for fun".

The Telegraph reported on Thursday that Dele Alli is set to open talks over a new Tottenham contract and also said Harry Kane will be next to be offered new terms. It's about how I believe, how we believe, and make things happen.

Harry Kane is the favourite in the betting market, and we are backing him as our prediction at his best odds of 11/17 at Bwin. "If that can all be sorted out, which is hard, then he'd be a great addition". Spurs are looking to make the England worldwide the highest paid player in the club ranks with a deal worth £200,000 a week.

Alli has become one of the hottest properties in the game, having truly been a revelation for Tottenham since moving from MK Dons in 2015. The Englishman showed he's recovered from his recent illness by netting twice in the FA Cup match against Wimbledon last week and he's the main reason why Tottenham should beat Everton this weekend.

"Always when a public person like Aaron is talking so openly, it is always very helpful to many people around who might have the same problem", said Pochettino, whose Tottenham side face Everton at Wembley on Saturday.

Manchester City, perhaps? Even City do not have a bottomless pit and, with the Premier League leaders unable to sell out for a Carabao Cup semifinal this week, the numbers game suggests that the money coming in through the turnstiles and off the pitch commercially would not stack up to make a move for Kane financially viable. He scores goals, he is young enough to have a bright future, he is ambitious and, crucially, many of Real's rivals have obstacles to overcome in order to sign him. He needs one goal to equal Teddy Sheringham's club record of 97 in the Premier League. Jermain Defoe achieved the feat between November and December 2004.

Everton could lose their opening three competitive matches of a calendar year for the first time since 1960.

Nevertheless, Allardyce did manage to hold Chelsea to a 0-0 draw before Christmas and has seen his team push Manchester United (2-0) and Liverpool (2-1) close this month in the league and FA Cup respectively.

Everton have mustered only four shots on target in as many games, six less than any other side in the top flight.

Probability of away win: 6%.

New signing Cenk Tosun scored 38 goals in 71 games for Besiktas since the start of last season.
