    Tottenham Hotspur host Everton at White Hart Lane on Wednesday 11th January 2012 in a Premier League match which was postponed from the opening day of the season and will now be the 20th game played by both teams.

    Spurs come into the match in third place in the League on 42 points, which is a club record for the first half of a Premier League season, while Everton find themselves in 11th place on 24 points.

    This will be the 168th time the two clubs have met.

    The first meeting came in April 1897 in an end of season friendly match at Tottenham Marshes which Spurs won 2-1. Everton were founder-members of the Football League and had just finished 7th in the First Division while Spurs were in the Southern League and had finished 4th.

    A further friendly was played at Goodison Park on New Year's Day 1902 which Everton won 3-1.

    The clubs' first competitive match came in the old First Round (today's Third Round) of the FA Cup in February 1904 at Goodison Park which Spurs won 2-1 with a Vivian Woodward goal and an own goal from Everton's Balmer.

    Both clubs embarked on a central European tour in the summer of 1905 an met twice with Everton winning both matches 2-0 in Vienna and 1-0 in Prague.

    A second FA Cup meeting came in January 1908 with Spurs losing 1-0 at Everton.

    At the end of that season, both Spurs and Everton set sail for a tour of South America and played two exhibition matches in Palermo, Argentina with the first game drawn 0-0 and Everton winning the second 4-0. On the voyage home, Spurs 'borrowed' the ship captain's parrot who lived happilly for a decade at the Tottenham offices in the High Road until it dropped dead the day news came through that Arsenal had stolen Spurs' First Division place in 1919.

    The first Football League meetings came in the First Division in the 1909-10 season with Everton winning 4-2 at Goodison and Spurs winning 3-0 at the Lane.

    The clubs then met regularly in the First Division up to season 1927-28 with eight wins for Spurs, ten wins for Everton and eight matches drawn.

    The only League meetings between the two clubs outside the Top Flight of English Football came in season 1930-31 in the Second Division with Everton winning 4-2 at Goodison Park and Spurs winning 1-0 at White Hart Lane.

    The clubs met for two more seasons in Division One before the outbreak of World War Two with a win apiece and two games drawn.

    Spurs won a 3rd Round FA Cup tie 3-0 at home in 1934 and a 5th round tie at home in 1937 4-3 after a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

    The first meeting after WW2 came in the 5th Round at Goodison Park in February 1950 with Everton winning 1-0.

    Spurs regained their First Division status in 1950-51 and did the 'double' over Everton on their way to the first Football League Championship won by Tottenham Hotspur with a 2-1 away win and a 3-0 home win. Everton lost their First Division place that same season along with Sheffield Wednesday, while Chelsea escaped the drop on goal average.

    Everton were back in the First Division for the 1954-55 season and the clubs have met in the Top Flight for every subsequent season to date, except for 1977-78 when Spurs dropped down to the Second Division for one season.

    Bill Nicholson's first game as Tottenham's manager came at White Hart Lane in October 1958 and Spurs were 6-1 up at half-time and went on to beat Everton 10-4.

    A League game at White Hart Lane in December 1969 was abandoned due to floodlight failure after 29 minutes.

    The two clubs met in February and March of 1986 in a competition called the Screen Sport Super Cup, which was introduced to give teams who would have qualified for the European competitions some compensation, as English clubs were banned from Europe. The first match at White Hart Lane ended goalless while Everton won the return leg 3-1.

    The only Football League Cup meeting between the clubs came in the Fourth Round in October 2009 with Spurs winning 2-0 at the Lane with goals from Tom Huddlestone and Robbie Keane.

    Both Tottenham Hotspur and Everton were founder-members of the Premier League and are two of the seven clubs who have been ever-present for the entire 20 seasons of the competition, along with Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.

    Spurs have taken more points off Everton in the Premier League than from any other opponent. The 68 points won by Spurs against Everton in the 38 matches played to date gives an average of 1.79 points won per game.

    The meetings last season in the Premier League only yielded one point for Spurs, which came in a 1-1 draw at the Lane in October 2010. The reverse fixture in January 2011 was won 1-2 by Everton. Rafael van der Vaart scored both Spurs' goals last season.

    Overall, Spurs have won 60 of the 167 matches played so far with Everton winning 57 and 50 matches drawn.

    Distin and Heitinga

    I think Osman and Rodwell are struggling too....

    Everton will be without Jagielka (knee), Coleman (thigh), Rodwell (hamstring), Fellaini (abductor) and Osman

    Apologies to @THFC6061 for taking this slightly away from the stats/history & towards the match itself but I'm worried about our central midfield pairing.

    The Jags injury is a plus but on their day Bale, Lennon, Modders, Ade & JD will unlock most first choice defenses but I'm genuinely concerned that Scotty, Sandro possibly Jakey boy wont be fit to play in the middle.

    The feeling seems to be Parker will be fine for Everton, HR is keeping everyone guessing with the injuries this season with key players - look at Chelsea game. Unless he says '100% out' I think its highly likely they will play in the bigger games.

    Livermore is fit for tomorrow so unless picks anything up tomorrow will be available for Wednesday's huge game!

    Just heard Moyes on SSN - sounds like Rodwell, Cahill, Osman and of course Jagielka will not make our game next Wednesday! Good news - as long as he is not going all Redknapp on us with injuries!

    No problem - in fact, that's the idea of these threads anyway.

    I'm always a bit awary about playing Everton as we do seem to have trouble against them - last season they took four points off us.

    But I do think we'll probably come away with a win next Wednesday, which would put us level on points with Manchester United after 20 games played.

    I always feel the same as of late, which is weird cos rewind 6-7 years and I was always super-confident going into an Everton match!

    I think their growing injury list will be what probably tips it our way in the end but I'm not expecting an easy match at all.

    Make this the official match thread? If that's OK with @THFC6061.

    Perhaps an edit to the title to note this? @spursman18 @Rev John Ripsher @BlueCrew LA @thfcire
