Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League form: (W-W-W-D-W)
This game will be important for Jose as they face reigning Premier League champions Liverpool at Anfield in the midweek fixture. Also the Lilywhites have kept a clean sheet in eight of their last 10 Premier League meetings with Palace and are unbeaten in 10 in this fixture, winning nine of those so a win is likely upon the cards.
Connor Wickham, Martin Kelly, Wayne Hennessey and Nathan Ferguson are all out of this fixture owing to injury concerns.
Jose will likely miss the services of Tanguy Ndombele, having been forced out of the North London derby with a minor issue, leaving Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela as Tottenham’s only fitness concerns.
Crystal Palace’s possible starting lineup:Guaita; Clyne, Kouyate, Cahill, Van Aanholt; Schlupp, Milivojevic, McArthur, Eze; Zaha, Benteke
Tottenham Hotspur’s possible starting lineup:Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg Bergwijn, Ndombele, Son; Kane
Crystal Palace 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
