Confidence is high in the Spurs squad, but Andre Villas-Boas knows it is vital his team maintain their good form going into the festive period.

After a shaky start, Villas-Boas has started to rebuild his reputation at Tottenham, who are now firmly in the hunt for a Champions League place following a run of three straight Premier League wins.

“The Premier League is very, very tight between third and 10th,” the former Chelsea boss said.

“Obviously we want to do well at Everton but understand that it is going to be extremely difficult.

“It is one of the most difficult grounds to go to, they are fully rested, but we have played in midweek.

“But we want to do well and take something out of there and continue with the momentum we have going.”

Everton have only lost one of their last 10 games, although their last three results have been draws.
