When we lost our second game of the season at home to Everton, our nightmare start was complete. The Toffees had managed a second successive win at The Lane after 15 years of failure against us on their travels. After their 3-1 win (all the goals were scored in the first half), Everton went top of the table, whilst Spurs were at the bottom. The look on Martin Jol's face told the full depressing story and within two days, Spurs Board members were caught out courting Juande Ramos in Seville. Only now perhaps do most Spurs fans at least accept the wisdom of the choice of manager, although we will always love and sympathise with Martin Jol.

Everton remain one of our favourite Premier League teams (Manchester City must be our current faves), as they have beaten us only 4 times at home and away since the inception of the Premier League in 1992. They have not managed a league "double" over us since the 1985-86 season, when Everton definitely had supremacy over us with three wins in the season, including a Fifth Round FA Cup win in March 1986. Now both teams are out of this year's FA Cup, and whilst Spurs have the Carling Cup to look forward to, David Moyes' men have realistic hopes of breaking into the top four. Everton do, after all, sit in fourth place at the time of writing this preview.

The trouble for Moyes is that he will be missing Tim Cahill and Tony Hibbert through suspension, and Yobo and Yakubu are still in Africa playing for their country. It looks as if they will be home soon, as they play their final group game tonight (29th January), with an outside chance of making the quarter-finals. Nigeria must beat Benin, and hope that top of the table Ivory Coast beat second placed Mali. Luckily, Moyes' injury list is negligible regarding the first team.

So, despite the difference in league placings, perhaps this is another good chance for Spurs to take three points, before having to face Manchester United again on Saturday at White Hart Lane.

Jonathan Woodgate's signing has been completed in time for him to be available, and with Chimbonda also back, Juande Ramos has plenty of options for selection, despite Michael Dawson's one-match suspension after Sunday's red card for deliberate handball. it is really no use trying to guess Ramos's team selection now, as he proved at Old Trafford that he can always spring a surprise or two.

Spurs have had two tough games though, and with United to follow, Ramos may be forced to rest one or more from Keane, Berbatov and Lennon.

Ramos will inevitably be looking for yet another performance from Jermaine Jenas, who has now scored 5 goals this season and is currently in great form. Jenas was in the middle of such a run when we won last year's game, scoring the late winner to make it three goals in four games. The win came near the start of Spurs' purple patch, following our 4-0 cup win at Fulham, and preceding a heroic 4-1 home win against Bolton.

we need another purple patch now, and we need it to continue until after the Carling Cup Final! I actually fancy Spurs to win this one, and to keep a clean sheet. I'll go for a 2-0. Any report will be posted on Thursday morning.

Did you know? Jonathan Woodgate's last game was on New year's Day for Middlesbrough at home to Everton. Everton won 2-0.
