With seven games to go this season it looks like Tottenham have finally cast off the curse that has seen them unable to sustain their momentum over the final weeks of the season.
One man who has been the major difference this season as apposed to previous season is Gareth Bale, the Welsh international is having a remarkable season and has been a fantasy must have for most of the season.
Bale has 17 goals and 7 assists to his credit so far this season which is remarkable given that his best goal scoring season saw him manage only 10 goals.
Heading into this weekend’s game with Everton Spurs will be keen to keep the pressure on second place Manchester City and with City making a trip to Old Trafford Tottenham could find themselves two points behind come Monday if they can beat the Toffee’s and City slip up against United.
The importance of this game will not be lost on Andrea Villas Boas and his players and while Everton too are in the hunt for European football, Bale and Tottenham will be keen to secure the three points at the Lane this weekend.
Everton who welcomed Tim Howard back from injury last weekend boast one of the worst defensive records in the league away from home and have only managed two clean sheets on their travels this season against Swansea and Southampton.
While the Toffee’s clean sheet last time out against Stoke at Goodison will have given them confidence heading to London it is highly unlikely that they will be able to stifle Bale in his current vein of form.
