Crystal Palace vs Tottenham | Latest Team News | Expected Line-Up’s | Predicted Score

By on February 24, 2018


Tottenham will be looking to keep the pressure on the top four with a win when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs head in to the game off the back of a 14-game unbeaten run but they were held to a 2-2 draw at Rochdale in the FA Cup last weekend so Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to get back to winning ways.

Tottenham beat Arsenal last time out in the Premier League and another win over a London rival tomorrow will see them climb in to the top four ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Manchester United.

They’ll face a Palace side that sit 17th in the division with only goal difference separating them from Swansea so Roy Hodgson will be desperate to secure a positive result tomorrow to boost their survival hopes.

Team news

Spurs will hand a late fitness test to Toby Alderweireld after the defender aggravated a hamstring injury in training last week but otherwise Pochettino has virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from.

The Argentinean coach is expected to make some changes from the Rochdale game with the likes of Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen set for recalls.

Palace have a lengthy injury list to contend with as Julian Speroni, Martin Kelly, Scott Dann, Mamadou Sakho, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jason Puncheon, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Wilfried Zaha, Bakary Sako and Connor Wickham are all ruled out.

Expected Line-Ups

Predicted Score

Crystal Palace 0-2 Tottenham: Spurs are playing well of late and have an excellent recent record against Palace having conceded just once in their last five meetings. The hosts are down to the bare bones and I can’t see them posing much of a problem for Tottenham.

    Why bother writing if you have not done any research ?

    Yesterday Hodgson stated that both Cabaye and Ward are injured.
