Crystal Palace Vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction, Odds And Team News

Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur will return to action on Saturday when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

New Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo has got off to a dream start for Spurs and has guided the club to three straight 1-0 victories.

For many, there is a genuine belief that the north London outfit could challenge the usual suspects for the title this season.

Things have been different for Palace’s new manager Patrick Vieira, however, who has so far added two draws and one loss to his CV - could it be another difficult campaign battling relegation for the Eagles?


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur to get your teeth stuck into.

Crystal Palace have failed to topple Tottenham Hotspur in each of the last 12 Premier League encounters and the hosts head into this all-London affair as the overwhelming outsiders.

As a result of that statistic alone, we’re backing Spurs to lead from the first to last whistle and cement their place at the top of the table.

Win to Nil: Tottenham Hotspur (9/4)

Tottenham have been fantastic at the back since Espirito Santo took charge and they have yet to concede in the league, chalking up three straight clean sheets.

After three straight 1-0 wins, there is a sense that players are still getting used to new methods and we reckon another low-scoring victory could be on the cards again.

Anytime Goalscorer: Lucas Moura (9/4)

There could be an opportunity for Lucas Moura to start this weekend’s game, especially with Espirito Santo sweating over the fitness of Heung-min Son and Steven Bergwijn.

The Brazillian forward has started two of Tottenham’s three league games this season and, although he has yet to find the back of the net, he has looked lively and he will be itching to get off the mark.

Crystal Palace team news

Crystal Palace’s transfer business went right to the wire as they struck late deals for Odsonne Edouard and Will Hughes, both of whom should feature here.

Christian Benteke, however, will aim to hold his place up top for now, while Wilfried Zaha will finally aim to break his goalscoring duck against Tottenham at the 13th attempt.

Tottenham Hotspur team news

Tottenham Hotspur trio Davinson Sanchez, Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso can all reportedly expect fines for linking up with their South American teams during the international break and will not feature due to quarantine rules.

The visitors have also been handed a scare over Son, who withdrew from the South Korea squad with a tight calf, while Oliver Skipp, Ryan Sessegnon and Bergwijn are also fresh injury concerns.
