Holtby: Facing Everton is a boyhood dream
Lewis Holtby is looking forward to Sunday's important fixture as Tottenham looks to hold on to third place when it hosts Everton, the Germany international's boyhood club.

His father Christopher is a supporter of Everton, and although the 22-year-old is also a Toffee, he insists he will try to put all his effort into helping his new club claim all three points.

“This is a boyhood dream,” Holtby told the official Totteham website.“Everton is my dad’s team and was my team when I was a little boy, but now I play for Spurs and I will give everything for the club.

He added, “I’m determined to win the game and hopefully score as well. My dad will be at the game. He’s brought his Everton shirt with him! There will be a father/son situation! It’s always typical English humor with him. It will be a great game and we just want to stay in third and keep putting the pressure on.”
