Everton v Tottenham odds : Back Lukaku to fire Toffees to home win

Romelu Lukaku looks a cracking bet to score in the latest Everton v Tottenham odds as high flying Everton and Spurs face on Saturday looking to keep their impressive starts to the season going.

The Toffees have made the transition from David Moyes to Roberto Martinez with ease and currently sit 6th in the table on 18 points, four points off leaders Arsenal.

Martinez has added quality performers such as Roman Lukaku (who can be backed at 7/4 to score anytime during the game), Gareth Barry and James McCarthy to the squad and veteran defender Sylvain Distin believes that the squad has a more balanced look to it as a result.

“I don’t think we’ve got a hugely bigger squad, but it’s more balanced now” the former Newcastle star told the Liverpool Echo.

“I’d say the main difference from last season is that we’ve got players who can come on and change the game.

“Last season we had young players on the bench, and some had never played in the Premier League.

“That’s crucial and the two loan players (Barry and Lukaku) have changed us too.”

That squad depth is set to be tested over the coming weeks with Everton heading into the clash with Spurs minus the services of five players with Apostolos Vellios, Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone, Johnny Heitinga and Antolin Alcaraz all out.

Spurs meanwhile sit two places and just one ahead of Martinez’ side after a run of three wins in their last five games.

Andre Villa-Boas side have more effective than spectucualr so far with their expensive attacking signings yet to fully gel as a unit.

The club will head into the game after two tough games against Hull in the last 7 days.

A Roberto Soldado penalty securing the points in the league with a penalty shootout required to separate the two sides in the Capital One cup.

Villas-Boas will be without the impressive Andros Townsend for the game although left back Danny Rose is set to return.

The sides drew 2-2 when they last met with Gylfi Sigurdsson, scorer of a stunning goal midweek against Hull, securing a point for the Londoners with three minutes left on the clock.
