Crystal Palace v Tottenham tips: Can Spurs keep up their winning run against Eagles?
Tottenham Hotspur head south of the river this evening to take on Crystal Palace.
Spurs have tended to do well against Palace in recent years. Mauricio Pochettino’s side could go level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool if they win this one.
But Palace are only two points above the drop zone. They’ll be well up for this.
It could be a very lively London derby. And we’ll have you ready for kick-off with all the key odds…
After reviving their Champions League hopes with a late comeback against PSV Eindhoven, Spurs will be raring to go. It’s 4/5 that they win this one.
Selhurst Park can be a tough place to go, but Palace are without a win in six. The hosts are 13/4 to end that streak and get the points.
There’s 27/10 about the draw.
Spurs have won each of the last four meetings between these clubs 1-0. We go 7/1 that it happens again this time.
Roy Hodgson will try and pack midfield with a narrow band of four. He’ll want to stop Spurs from getting their passing going.
Even though they’re at home, Palace will play on the counter. And if they can get the ball to Wilfried Zaha in dangerous areas, they’ll have a real chance.
Mousa Dembele’s injury means Christian Eriksen could continue in a deeper midfield role for the visitors.
Dele Alli could also make his first league start since September. His link-up with Harry Kane could make the difference.
Erik Lamela has netted in his last two away appearances too. It’s 23/10 that he keeps it up here.
Zaha is usually Palace’s main attacking threat and our odds agree. He’s 12/5 to become the first Palace player to score against Spurs since February 2016.
