Preamble Evening. Well it’s fifth versus sixth from last season at a sodden White Hart Lane, and after making canny additions to his side, David Moyes must fancy his chances of going one better than Martin Jol this season. He’ll need his squad to stay injury-free to do it, but with once-a-red-now-a-blue Leighton Baines coming in at left-back and jack-of-all-trades Phil Jagielka offering cover to a strong defence and midfield, if Andy Johnson can find his shooting boots they’ve got a chance.

Martin Jol meanwhile, has more firepower than a US Navy warship and with Darren Bent starting tonight alongside Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov he’ll be hoping that his side’s opening day defeat to Sunderland was just an early season blip. It’s in defence where Spurs are short through injury, and despite collecting about 48 midfielders in three years, big Martin Jol still hasn’t found one with the attacking nous of Tim Cahill or the assuredness and class of Mikel Arteta. It’ll be an intriguing contest and I expect Everton to play on the break while Spurs will dominate possession.

Excepting Roy Keane, this match also pairs the two Premier League managers you’d least like to meet down an alley in the seedy early hours after a night on the ale. Who would you fancy over 12 rounds between the wiry Glaswegian and Jol, who looks for all the world like he’s been running the door at Amsterdam’s Bulldog bar for years?

Match prediction: Spurs 2-1 Everton

Fight prediction: Moyes on points (split decision)

Prematch emails

Gary Naylor’s first off the mark and predicts a 0-1 win for Everton thanks to an Arteta free-kick and livewire Leon Osman filling Tim Cahill’s boots admirably. While Spurs fan John Lally laments being stuck in a bar – presumably with a laptop and wireless connection – in New York instead of North London where it’s wet and cold? It’s not a bad second choice John. Sorry John, just realised you said “stuck at your desk” not bar. I think that’s wishful thinking on my part.

“Moyes would get a few shots in – maybe Jol would lose an eye, but then big Mart would get close enough, and snap Moyes like a twig….. Nice eh?” says Mark Cruise. Yeah, nice indeed Mark. Have you been watching Jean Claude Van Damme’s Double Impact?

1 min Mark Halsey blows his whistle very hard indeed and we’re underway. Keane and Berbatov connect well on the right and send Bent down the flank but Everton snuff out the danger.

Goal!!! Spurs 0-1 Everton (Lescott 2 mins) What a start, as Everton win a free-kick on the right and Arteta whips it in perfectly for Lescott who heads down hard without a decent challenge to put Everton 1-0 up.

4 mins Stalteri has been caught out a couple of times already at left-back.It was his rash challenge that led to the Everton free-kick.

7 mins Spurs have come back strongly and are pulling Everton’s defence around with some nifty movement from their attacking trio.

9 mins Bent hits a great shot across Howard who makes a smart save and Yobo scrambles Malbranque’s follow-up clear. It’s started at a right old pace this one.

11 mins Spurs are starting to dominate possession. Malbranque throws a reckless tackle in on Arteta midway inside the Spurs half and Arteta prepares to swing in another free-kick but he uncharacteristically send it high into the stands.

14 mins Andy Johnson chases a lost cause and creates a chance for Anichebe. But he hits it low and hard straight into the spongy midriff of Robinson.

16 mins Keane finds Malbranque in the Everton 18-yard box with a clever chipped pass but Yobo clatters into the Frenchman and takes the ball and everything within six yards of him to clear the danger.

19 mins A pulled hamstring forces Younes Kaboul off. He’s replaced by Ricardo Rocha who immediately makes a superb tackle on Andy Johnson as he races down the flank. Spurs break and Zokora blasts high into the stands.

20 mins Steptoe, Authentic Prada Outlet Online Usa sorry, Phil Neville, crosses to little Leon Osman who does his best impression of Tim Cahill (to please Gary Naylor, no doubt) by jumping and heading just over the Spurs bar.

23 mins Spurs are Bicester Village Prada Opening dominating posession but their final ball is lacking. Jenas has wasted two good opportunities to cross.

25 mins The Tottenham faithful are taunting Everton with chants of “hoof” everytime they clear the ball.

Goal!!! Spurs 1-1 Everton (Gardner 26 mins) Anthony Gardner does to Lescott what Lescott did to him by losing him in the box and scoring a carbon copy header for Spurs. Andy Gray does his best to avoid saying “it’s a funny old game.”

29 mins Spurs fans celebrate by taunting Everton fans with chants of “sign on.” Strange bunch in North London. Now they’re quieter than they were when they were losing.

32 mins Everton have settled into the Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Online Store game more now. They win a corner after Andy Johnson Black Leather Prada Milano Purse has a cross snuffed out but it comes to nothing.

35 mins The game’s slowed down. It had to. It’s been played at a rip-roaring pace. Much of that’s to to with the torrential rain that’s still lashing down onto the turf.

Goal!!! Spurs 1-2 Authentic Prada Bags Online Singapore Everton (Leon Osman 37 mins) Arteta dinks a lovely cross over from the right and Anichebe has a header blocked before Leon Osman hits a volley into the roof of the net off the rebound. Gary Naylor is feeling smug no doubt. And my prediction is ruined.

39 mins Berbatov hasn’t got near the ball for Spurs and they could really do with a piece of magic from him to get them back into the game.

41 mins Arteta is causing Spurs loads of problems. He’s drifting from the centre to the right and nobody knows who should cover him. Free-kick for Everton.

42 mins Arteta takes it and lands it on the netting at the top-right hand corner. Good effort.

44mins Spurs look devoid of ideas and Everton are in control Black Leather Prada Milano Purse now. Another free-kick for Everton after a stupid foul by Malbranque. Alan Stubbs line it up.

Goal!!! Spurs 1-3 Everton (Alan Stubbs 45 mins) Alan Stubbs smashes it from 30 yards and it clips the wall before beating a rooted Paul Robinson in the Spurs goal.

46 mins Spurs are booed off. They’ve been poor but not as bad as at the weekend. They need some cut and thrust in midfield in my humble opinion. Mikel Arteta has bossed the midfield. He’s a class act.

Half-time emails

“Actually, never mind the game. How do pronounce your last name? does the r-o-u-g-h sound “ruff” or “row” or is there some other permutated pronunciation. Further, why the redundant “g” at the end of your first name?” asks Philip Jackson. Well Philip it’s pronounced “ruff”-“lee” as in roughly does it. My mum didn’t want people to think I was called Gregory so she blocked the Greg off with an extra G. I was also called Gregg after Greg Lake of Emerson Lake and Palmer fame. Lucky me!

“Why do you guys have the latest minute by minute updates at the bottom of the page? Everytime I refresh the web page, I have to scroll to the bottom – which makes my web usage slightly more conspicuous at work?”asks Sturat Campe. Because of my stupidity, Sturat. I’ve now turned it around for you so you won’t get rumbled by your boss.

46 mins We’re back underway and Tottenham immediately Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Outlet Online go on the attack after no doubt getting a roasting off big Martin at half-time. Berbatov crashes a shot against the upright. This has started at a pace just like the first half.

49 mins Arteta is at it Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Dresses Uk again. This time he dinks a short free-kick into the box, confusing the Spurs defence and almost sending Anichebe clear.

53 mins Jenas woefully over-hits a crossed free-kick from the right which sends Tim Howard scrambling backwards as it almost drops into the top left-hand corner.

55 mins “I was also named after Greg lake from Emerson, Lake and Palmer” says Lake Michigan from Chicago, Illinois. Hmmm. Really. Meanwhile, Spurs are struggling to get out of their own half and have reverted to the hoof tactics themselves. But they do win a free-kick on the edge of the Everton box.

58 mins Spurs have a free-kick on the edge of the box after a mix-up on the edge of the Everton box that resulted in a foul. Keane lines it up.

62 mins Keane grazes the post with the free-kick but Howard had it covered. Bent is replaced by Defoe. He’s been really quiet and considering his pace you’d have though he’d have given 36-year-old Alan Stubbs a harder time. Defoe has a point to prove to the watching Steve McClaren.

64 mins Arteta whips in another dangerous free-kick and Paul Robinson gets caught in no-man’s-land, but the ball goes out for a goal-kick.

65 mins “I was called Ivan because I resembled a Russian peasant after I was born – covered in blood and crying. Which is how I feel now as a Spurs supporter,” says Ivan Victor. Ooh. That’s harsh Ivan. But meanwhile your team has just brought on Wayne Routledge for the abject Stalteri. Big Martin is going for it now with this line-up.

69 mins Everton are trying to slow play down. They look comfortable and are no doubt more than happy to hold onto the ball and frustrate Spurs.

70 mins Lescott heads a Paul Robinson clearance about 50 yards back to him and almost sends the rapid Andy Johnson through on goal.

73 mins Defoe shanks a wild shot out towards the corner flag in a desperate attempt to impress.

74 mins Andy Johnson tries to curl one around Paul Robinson after playing a return pass with Anichebe, but Robinson leaps at it and palms it away for the cameras. Andy Gray says Johnson’s shot was “deliberate”. Of course, he’d have buried that when he played for the Toffees.

76 mins Neil Clough has emailed in to say the Keane free-kick on 62 mins was a lot further away than I made out. Sorry Neil, that’s me told.

78 mins Chimbonda angles in a low cross that skips off the turf to Defoe who blasts it at the nearpost, but Howard pulls off a wonder save to keep Everton’s two goal lead intact.

80 mins Phil Jagielka is on for Everton to anchor the midfield.

82 mins Tottenham are huffing and puffing but getting nowhere. Their fans are flowing out of the exit gates already.

85 mins Andy Johnson races through and gets a snap shot in from the corner of the six-yard box which Robinson does well to parry. Johnson has been impressive and Steve McClaren may be tempted to give him a go against Germany.

87mins Chimbonda floats a free-kick in but Howard claims it easily. Everton fans chant “we are top of the league”. Well observed Toffees.

89 mins Johnson is sent clear from a Phil Jagielka tackle but his legs look drained of energy and he can’t get a shot in. I’m not surprised. He’s run his socks off tonight.

91 mins Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Everton know they’ve won it now and attack with potency. The impressive Leon Osman puts Andy Johnson in and Paul Robinson makes a great stop from his close range left-footed shot.

Full-time It’s all over at White Hart Lane and Martin Jol’s expensively assembled team trudge off the pitch to howls of derision.

Everton showed that they have the organisation and attacking threat to finish best-of-the-rest in the Premier League. Arteta was the best player on the pitch and if he keeps himself free of injury and with the return of Tim Cahill they’ll do well this season. The pressure appears to be upon Martin Jol’s shoulders already. Spurs need to find their best midfield and stick with it because too often they seemed to misread each other tonight. Thanks for all your comments and emails.
