Tottenham Hotspur heads to this game after a thrilling 5:4 defeat against Everton in FA Cup. They needed to go into the extra time but got kicked out of the competition. Jose Mourinho’s side struggles lately, and everything started from a 3:1 defeat against Liverpool. The Spurs lost four times since then and booked only one victory. Additionally, Harry Kane suffered an injury that had a significant impact on Tottenham’s efficiency.
