Does Marco Silva go with Theo Walcott and his encouraging record vs Tottenham?

Everton manager Marco Silva faces a dilemma ahead of the weekend Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur.

Silva will feel as though Spurs are there for the taking, especially at home, after winning just three of their first ten league games so far.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team haven’t been at the races this season, and it’s a good chance to pick up three points for Everton, who can ease some of the pressure on Silva with a win.

Perhaps one man he should be considering in attack is Theo Walcott, who has a pretty encouraging personal record against Spurs.

 

TBR’s view – Walcott tends to perform against Tottenham

The former England international has scored seven times against Spurs in 21 outings against them in his professional career, and made five assists. That’s a decent output considering a handful of those appearances were as a substitute.

As an Everton player, Walcott has faced Tottenham twice and scored on both occasions.

The £20 million signing (BBC Sport) started on the bench in midweek for the Carabao Cup tie against Watford, but replaced youngster Moise Kean at half-time and assisted for Mason Holgate.

There may be some temptation to play Richarlison or Kean out wide, but Walcott’s encouraging record and recent form should give something for Silva to think about.
