However, Everton can also climb into the same position if they come away with the points.
"We have to push for the whole game because Everton are playing well and are a top side as well as us, so we have to win," Sandro told the club's official website.
"We have to play well again and we know it's going to be a really hard game. It's always difficult to play games away from home, and Everton will be no different. It will be hard but we are strong."
Tottenham have won four of their last six matches in the Premier League.
