Jose Mourinho's Tottenham head to Everton tonight

It is a busy Friday ahead of a jam-packed weekend of football across the continent and we have got it all covered on LiveScore.

Everton and Tottenham kick off the Premier League weekend tonight, while there are key fixtures in the title races across Spain, Italy and Germany.

On top of that, we have news of Lionel Messi’s record-breaking boots and how much they are expected to fetch for charity.

Everton vs Tottenham (8pm, Sky Sports)

Everton and Tottenham meet at Goodison Park with both teams knowing defeat will be near fatal to their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

The Toffees would move four points behind West Ham with victory, having played the same number of games, while Spurs would have played one more and still have a three-point gap to overcome.

That gap has seen the pressure continue to build on Jose Mourinho, who has spoken of his desire to beef up Tottenham’s defence if they are to improve next campaign.

We take a look at the options available to them if they are to delve into the transfer market for a centre-back this summer.

Messi’s magic boots

Messi has broken many records in his incredible career — and now you can buy the boots he used to notch one of them in December.

Barcelona’s 3-0 victory over Real Valladolid saw the mercurial Argentinian score his 644th goal for the club, breaking the record previously set by Pele for most competitive goals scored for a single club.

Now his boots are being auctioned off to raise money for charity — and you can find out all the details, including the good cause the funds are headed to, right here.
