Club record signing to return, 25 years at the beginning: Predicted Spurs XI vs Palace – originally published on Sportslens.com
English Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur are visiting Crystal Palace today for another one London Derby and they will try to keep their position at the top of the table with a win.
Spurs have not lost a league game since losing to Everton on the opening day of the 2020/21 season and they will want to take all three points today to maintain their title defense.
Palace were in an uproar last time out, giving West Bromwich Albion a 5-1 defeat. They will appreciate their chances of giving Tottenham a run for their money with their top form attackers.
The Eagles have five wins, one draw and five losses in the Premier League this season, and we never know which version of them will appear at Selhurst Park this afternoon.
A violent clash could be at stake as the two teams have different points to prove, but Spurs are favorites in the game and manager Jose Mourinho will see any result but a win as a disappointment.
Connor Wickham, Nathan Ferguson, Wayne Hennessey and Martin Kelly will not be eligible for selection due to injuries, but Palace Manager Roy Hodgson is expected to name the same starting place XI that West Brom last Weekend destroyed.  Tottenham have to do without Erik Lamela, who still has a calf injury, while Serge Aurier undoubtedly played in pain in the North London Derby last weekend.
