Spurs saw their unbeaten start to the restart come to an end last week as they were blown away by a clinical Blades side at Bramall Lane.
Goals from Sander Berge, Lys Mousset and Oliver McBurnie had all wrapped up the points for Chris Wilder’s troops before Harry Kane got himself on the score-sheet in the closing stages.
Defeat in the Steel City means that Spurs have only won one of their first three games since last month’s restart, which was a 2-0 home triumph over West Ham United.
Fortunately, though, for Jose Mourinho and his players they have the chance to put Thursday’s mistakes behind them against Everton this evening, as they aim to extend their unbeaten run on home soil to three matches.
Everton will arrive in North London looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the restart, having drawn with Merseyside rivals Liverpool and beaten both Norwich City and Leicester City.
And with all Premier League matches between now and the end of the season being ordered to take place behind closed doors as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Spurs’ fans will be looking for a way to watch the contest from the comfort of their own home or, following the easing of the lockdown rules over the weekend, at the local pub.
But what do you need to know about the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this evening? We have outlined all of the key details you need to know right here.
What time is kick-off between Spurs and Everton?
With this evening’s clash in North London being the only Premier League fixture to be played today, the contest will kick-off at the usual time for a Monday evening game of 8:00pm, opposed to the slightly later kick-off time of 8:15pm, which has been a regular occurrence since the season resumed last month.

Spurs, who drew 1-1 with Everton in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park in November, will be hoping Dele Alli wins his fitness race in time to be included in the match-day squad.
He suffered a hamstring problem in training after the defeat to Sheffield United and is now facing a race against time to be declared fit.
Everton, on the other hand, will be without four players for their trip to the capital, with Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun all sidelined through injury.
