Spurs team news
It’s been a relatively successful beginning to life as Tottenham manager for Antonio Conte who comes into his sixth Premier League match in charge undefeated and having accumulated 11 points from 15 available (three wins and two draws). To put this in some perspective, only two Spurs managers have not tasted defeat in their first six league matches: Jacques Santini in 2004 and Tim Sherwood in 2013/14. History, at least, is on Conte’s side as Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 14 league games on Boxing Day (11 wins and three defeats) since a 2-0 loss at Portsmouth in 2003/04. It’s the longest ongoing unbeaten run on this day by any side within the top four tiers of English football. That being said, the Lilywhites — who are missing Ryan Sessegnon and Cristian Romero both out with respective hamstring injuries — have lost five of their last six league London derby matches, but they can still call on Harry Kane who has scored in all five of his top-flight Boxing Day appearances (eight goals), only Robbie Fowler (9) has scored more Premier League goals on this day than him.
Spurs predicted XI: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Skipp, Winks, Alli, Reguilon; Kane, Son.

Crystal Palace team news
Crystal Palace are looking to win back-to-back league games against Tottenham for the very first time, with this being their 46th such meeting. However, their last away win at Spurs came in November 1997 when they ran out 0-1 winners, since then it’s been six consecutive defeats by an aggregate score of 13-1. On top of that, Crystal Palace have won just one of their last six Premier League games on Boxing Day (three draws and two losses), beating West Ham 2-1 in 2019/20. Speaking of recent Premier League London derbies: Palace are unbeaten in their last four such games, last having a longer such run in the top-flight between April-November 1990 (7), and they’ve netted seven goals in their last three which is as many as in their previous 10 combined. As a Premier League footballer, Palace boss Patrick Vieira — who could be without James McArthur this weekend — was on the winning side in all eight of his games played on Boxing Day, this is the best 100% win rate on the day by a player in the competition’s history.
Crystal Palace predicted XI: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Hughes, Kouyate; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha.
