Tottenham being their EPL season against Everton, in what is expected to be a tight clash, but the home side are favourites.
Tottenham and Everton meet on Sunday in London as they kick off the new English Premier League season.
Both are looking to improve on stuttering EPL campaigns last time around, with heavyweight bosses Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti both reinforcing their squads in a Covid-19 impacted off-season.
Spurs have gone for steady rather than spectacular, with full back Matt Doherty in line to make his debut at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following a summer transfer from Wolves.
Midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg also made the switch to north London after signing from Southampton.
The search goes on for another striker to back up England captain Harry Kane at the sharp end, as Tottenham seek a return to Champions League football.
Everton caught the eye with the recent signing of playmaker James Rodriguez following his unhappy spell in Spain with Real Madrid.
He is expected to make his first Toffees star, immediately linking up with fellow South American star Richarlison.
Abdoulaye Doucoure also arrived from Premier League rivals Watford this week, bolstering the Merseyside club for a tilt at the European qualification places this EPL campaign.
