Crystal Palace have really struggled up front in recent times. Their sum of goals stands at just 2 versus opponents during their previous 6 outings. In those meetings, The Eagles have also seen the number of goals scored against them total 13. It will be interesting to see if that trend will be sustained in this game.

Team News: Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson does not have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from.
It seems likely that The Eagles will possibly opt for a 4-4-2 formation for the game featuring Vicente Guaita, Tyrick Mitchell, Scott Dann, Cheikhou Kouyate, Joel Ward, Jeffrey Schlupp, James McArthur, James McCarthy, Andros Townsend, Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Zaha.
Team News: Tottenham Hotspur
Owing to a fully injury-free group to choose from, Tottenham Hotspur manager José Mourinho has no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash.
We are inclined to think that Spurs could decide to make use of a 4-3-3 lineup by sending out Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sánchez, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Lucas Moura, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.
We envisage that Crystal Palace have enough to breach the defence of this Tottenham Hotspur team, although just one goal probably won’t quite be enough.
We are therefore anticipating a close game with a 1-2 advantage for Tottenham Hotspur when the full-time whistle blows. It really should be an interesting one.
