Tottenham Hotspur FC is going to clash with Crystal Palace today in the Premier League fixture scheduled for a kick off at 20:00 GMT [15:00 ET].
Tottenham lost to Chelsea in FA Cup fixture and while their road to victory is over in the FA Cup, they still have a shot at acing the Premier League charts if they continue their winning streak and win today’s fixture against Crystal Palace that is on a high after beating Liverpool at Anfield.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team has been doing immensely well in the Premier League having won seven matches straight in the league and will hope to continue that run at Selhurst Park. Tottenham must beat Crystal Palace to continue putting pressure on Chelsea.
As far as teams are concerned, Tottenham could return to their regular 4-2-3-1 setup after going three at the back in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to the Blues. If the Spurs do opt for the 4-2-3-1 setup, it will mean that Eric Dier or Victor Wanyama could be dropped for Ben Davies, who would come in at left-back with Son Heung-Min pushing up to join the attack. Michel Vorm, Harry Winks, Erik Lamela and Danny Rose are out. The potential starting XI for the Spurs could be Lloris; Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Dembele; Eriksen, Dele, Son; and Kane.
Crystal Palace will be heading to the match with a strong record against the north London side as it has managed to garner two victories of the last five meetings since the start of 2015. As far as the team is concerned, James Tomkins is not expected to feature and Scott Dann is also going to remain out and so Martin Kelly will keep his place alongside Mamadou Sakho, who returns after being ineligible to face the Reds. Connor Wickham and Pape Souare are long-term absentees. Potential starting XI for Crystal Palace: Hennessey; Ward, Kelly, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Cabaye, Milivojevic, Puncheon; Townsend, Benteke, Zaha.
