Two Champions League hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur and Everton clash on Sunday in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to maintain their position of third place in the Premier League when they host Everton on Sunday afternoon.

Andre Villas-Boas's men head into the game having come from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Basel, but have lost two of their last three in the league.

Everton are looking to end the season strongly and three consecutive wins have seen them move to within two points of fifth-placed Arsenal.

Spurs will likely have to make do without star man Gareth Bale after he was injured in the draw against Basel, with both Aaron Lennon and William Gallas also potential absentees after respective knocks in the same game.

Marouane Fellaini and Steven Pienaar both have a game left of their respective suspensions, while Kevin Mirallas is touch-and-go after the knock he picked up against Stoke City.
