Tottenham Hotspur gets their 2020-21 Premier League campaign underway on Sunday afternoon when they host Everton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho will welcome his good old friend and fellow legend Carlo Ancelotti with both the clubs looking to start the season on a high note.
This is the 11th time Tottenham and Everton have met on the opening weekend of a top-flight season, which is three more than any other fixture.
Everton’s record away to Spurs is even worse; they have won just three of their 28 such games in the Premier League era – losing 17 – and the last of those wins came in November 2008, 11 visits ago.
