Everton vs Tottenham LIVE: Harry Kane absent for Spurs as both bosses try to ease pressure | Football | Sport

Harry Kane is absent for Tottenham at Everton as both Marco Silva and Mauricio Pochettino look to ease pressure on themselves.

Both managers have come in for some criticism due to their poor starts in the Premier League.

The Toffees are only two points above the relegation zone, albeit having played a game less than those around them.

Spurs, meanwhile, languish 13th and are 11 points off fourth-placed Chelsea.

The task for visitors Spurs is made all the more difficult without talismanic No 9 Kane, who is sidelined by illness.

That means Lucas Moura comes in while Ben Davies captains the away team with Danny Rose while Tanguy Ndombele also comes in. Ryan Sessegnon makes a matchday squad for the first time since joining from Fulham in the summer.

Hosts Everton has made two changes from the team beaten in dramatic circumstances by Brighton last weekend, with Yerry Mina returning from a knock to displace Michael Keane.

With Bernard out with a knee problem, Fabian Delph beefs up the midfield.
