Tottenham defender Kyle Walker knows shackling Marouane Fellaini will be key to the visitors’ chances of success.

The Belgian’s eight-goal scoring spree from midfield has played a big part in Everton’s good form this season.

“Marouane Fellaini is a real handful,” the England right-back said.

“He’s mobile for a big guy, gets the ball down and they go through him.

“They’ve good players, lots of internationals and it will be difficult. Ever since I’ve played in the Premier League, Everton is always one of the tough games.

“But our centre-backs Jan (Vertonghen) and Steven (Caulker) are fantastic and hopefully if we can keep a clean sheet then Jermain (Defoe), Emmanuel Adebayor or Clint (Dempsey) can go and get us a goal.

“If we continue playing how we’ve been playing and those three keep scoring, then we’ve got every chance.”

Villas-Boas looks set to recall Hugo Lloris in goal after giving Brad Friedel a run out in Tottenham’s Europa League win over Panathinaikos on Thursday.

Gareth Bale is unavailable due to a hamstring injury and Michael Dawson also looks unlikely to play due to a similar concern.

Dempsey will probably start in Bale’s place on the left, leaving Adebayor and Defoe free to resume their partnership up front.
