Phil Jagielka insists in-form Spurs won't be relishing their visit to Goodison Park this weekend.

Tottenham have won their last three games to overtake Everton in the Premier League table.

They are now three points above the Blues, heaping extra significance onto Sunday's game.

But the north London outfit haven't fared well in this particular fixture in recent years.

Jagielka told evertontv: "We have done well at Goodison this year and we want to make it a hard place to come.

"It is going to be difficult, Spurs are free-scoring at the moment and keeping clean sheets but they have not had the best of runs when they have come to Goodison before and we want to make sure they go home at the weekend with a similar feeling."

The Toffees won last season's corresponding fixture 1-0 with Nikica Jelavic scoring his first goal in a blue shirt.

The Croat has been less prolific this season but Jagielka insists it's nothing to worry about - citing the form of Marouane Fellaini as more than equal recompense.

"Everything was working for him when he came and now the person who is playing up front with him – Felli – everything is coming off for him,” said Everton's stand-in captain.

“Look up at Newcastle, Demba Ba was on fire then Papiss Cisse came and Ba didn’t score. This season it is the opposite way round, that is the way cycles go.
“He knows we’re supporting him and he’ll get frustrated on the days it doesn’t happen but we know he’ll come good. And, at the moment we’re doing okay without his goals so when he does hit the ground running again he’ll make us even stronger.”
