Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to keep their grip on top spot in the Premier League when they travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Predictions
When Tottenham lost their first game of the season against Everton, it looked as though 2020/21 would be a long campaign for the club, with questions over whether Jose Mourinho was the right choice to replace Mauricio Pochettino.
But fast forward three months and Tottenham are top of the table, level on points with defending champions Liverpool, but ahead on goal difference. They have won seven of their 11 games so far including victories over Manchester City and Manchester United and their form in November, three wins and a draw, earned Mourinho Manager of the Month.
While Mourinho has been rewarded for his work, Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has come under fire from some sections of the Eagles’ support this season. Despite sitting comfortably in 11th, Palace have struggled for consistency this season, with their defence coming unstuck at times.
Although Palace did thrash West Brom 5-1 last time out, and also beat Leeds 4-1, those two results came either side of defeats to Burnley and Newcastle in which they failed to score.
