Tottenham v Crystal Palace Past Meetings

Spurs took six points off Palace last season, but the Eagles didn’t make it easy for them.

Christian Eriksen scored a 78th-minute winner at Selhurst Park, whilst a late, rare Victor Wanyama goal sealed the win at White Hart Lane.

Spurs have won their last four Premier League head-to-heads and haven’t lost at home to the Eagles since 1997.

Dele Alli has scored four goals in his last four games for Spurs; one more than he managed in his first nine this season.

Palace are one of just four teams in the big five European leagues yet to keep a clean sheet this season

Since the 2014-15 season, no player has scored more Premier League goals for Crystal Palace than Wilfried Zaha.


Tottenham v Crystal Palace Team News

James McArthur (ankle) and Mamadou Sakho (calf) are both hoping to return to Roy Hodgson’s side.

Spurs suffered a double blow midweek with Hugo Lloris (abductor tear) and Toby Alderweireld (hamstring strain) picking up  injuries. Michel Vorm should deputise in goal, whilst Eric Dier is likely to drop into defence.


Reason for Tottenham v Crystal Palace Bets

 

Tottenham couldn’t have responded better to their disappointing loss to Manchester United against Real Madrid midweek. The Lilywhites outperformed the European champions with a confident and clinical display. It’s another massive boost to the north Londoner’s morale, as they again prove their capabilities against the very best.

Sunday’s match against Palace must be considered a must-win therefore, with the Eagles seriously struggling this season. They remain without a point nor a goal away from home this season. They’ve undoubtedly looked livelier under Hodgson, and showed spirit to comeback after being two nil down against West Ham last week. Nevertheless, another first half performance like last week’s will surely be all Spurs need to put the game to bed.

Despite Spurs’ impressive midweek win, Hodgson won’t want his side to sit back and invite pressure. They tried to attack Manchester City at the Etihad, and they’ll likely do the same against Spurs. That could play into the home side’s hands though, and expect Spurs to seal the points at 1/4 with Paddy Power.

A home win to nil is a tempting bet at 6/5 with Bet365 given each side’s defensive and attacking records. Nevertheless, with Alderweireld and Lloris out, Palace have a good a chance as any to nick an away goal on the counter. The most sensible option seems to be backing Harry Kane to score. The England international was superb against Madrid, with everything but his finishing coming off. Back the striker to put that right as the first scorer at 7/4 with Bet365.
