Eriksen & Son Set for Improved Contracts Despite Defender's Wage Demands Stalling Renewal

For Alderweireld's former Ajax teammate, Eriksen, and South Korean forward Son, extending their contracts with the club appears to be more straightforward.

"You're all aware of our interest in Theo Walcott". Sam Allardyce will try to contain Spurs and keep them out, but I don't think he will manage it.

Tottenham are three points out of fourth place and can move into the top four with a win against Everton coupled with a Liverpool loss.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are now out of the Champions League places, although they can draw level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool if they win at Wembley and overtake Jurgen Klopp's side if they beat the Toffees by five goals or more.

Tottenham come into this game on a five game unbeaten streak.

As much as it sells itself as the biggest and most exciting league in the world, the Premier League has still to find a way to keep its biggest stars from the clutches of La Liga's superpowers. The Englishman showed he's recovered from his recent illness by netting twice in the FA Cup match against Wimbledon last week and he's the main reason why Tottenham should beat Everton this weekend.

Their run of 16 points from the last seven league fixtures is second only to leaders Manchester City. He scores goals, he is young enough to have a bright future, he is ambitious and, crucially, many of Real's rivals have obstacles to overcome in order to sign him.

Mauricio Pochettino's only loss in 10 league matches as a manager against Everton was Southampton's 2-1 away defeat in December 2013. It's not only to say the club needs to do this and this.

The Mirror claim that two players are now on Tottenham's wish list in terms of new contracts, with Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min in line for new deals. Kane has a total in all competitions of 125 which is still some way behind Greaves' 266, but Pochettino feels his key man can achieve the feat. While he looks likely to field a similar starting eleven to the previous Premier League game against West Ham, he could also bring Eric Dier back into a three-man central defence to play a 3-4-3 formation with Victor Wanyama once more available as the defensive midfielder.
