U-21 Play off Semi Final: Spurs v Everton
Despite winning the Elite Group of the Newly formed Barclays U-21 tournament, Spurs entertain Everton in a semi final play off at WHL tonight (KO 7pm)
Everton started the competition slowly, finishing 4th in the National Group 1 section, but were far mor convincing in the second phase, where they topped the Group 1 (effectively the second tier), being unbeaten in their twelve games, winning six and drawing six. In total, Everton, who are managed by former player Alan Stubbs, are now unabated in sixteen games, so despite playing a level lower that Spurs, are potentially a very decent opposition and at this young age, teams can suddenly find their feet and excel.
Spurs have recalled Jordan Archer, Alex Pritchard and Jon Obika to the starting XI, following their return to the club after loans and the team is as follows: Archer; Fredericks, Fryers, Hall, Stewart; Bentaleb, Carroll, Veljkovic; Pritchard, Obika, Ceballos. Subs: Miles, Barthram, Nicholson, Gallifuoco, McEvoy.
