Tottenham vs Crystal Palace Preview, Team News, Line-Up, Betting Tips & Prediction
Tottenham take on Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Here’s a preview with team news, likely line-up, betting tips and predicted score
Tottenham will look to book their place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup when they take on Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Spurs have been in excellent form of late and boosted their Premier League title chances with an impressive 2-1 win over Manchester City last weekend so the squad should be full of confidence right now.
The North Londoners followed that up with a solid 1-1 draw away to Fiorentina in the first leg of their Europa League tie on Thursday night but they’ll need to quickly turn their attention to FA Cup matters tomorrow.
Mauricio Pochettino has done a fine job rotating his squad in order to cope with playing in three separate competitions so far this season and he’s expected to field a strong side against Palace this weekend.
Spurs will be without the services of skipper Hugo Lloris as the goalkeeper has failed to recover from a shoulder injury that he picked up against City, so Michel Vorm is set to continue in goal.
Defender Jan Vertonghen remains out with a long-term knee injury while Tom Carroll and Clinton N’Jie are also unavailable for selection.
Pochettino is expected to make some changes from the side that drew with Fiorentina with the likes of Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Harry Kane pushing for recalls.
As for Palace, Alan Pardew is hoping Yannick Bolasie is fit enough to return to the squad after nine weeks out with a hip injury.
Tottenham 2-0 Crystal Palace: Spurs have been in great form of late and will be confident of progressing to the quarter finals tomorrow. Palace haven’t won in nine games and I fancy the hosts to ease to a comfortable 2-0 win.
Tottenham are the 13/20 favourties with the bookmakers but Football-Talk can get you enhanced odds of 5/1 on a Spurs win – just click here to take advantage of these incredible odds. My prediction of 2-0 is on offer at 13/2 while I also like the look of Kane opening the scoring at odds of 10/3. If you combined those two bets in a score-cast then we get very tempting odds of 16/1.
