Spurs versus Crystal Palace: (match preview)
Following on from one of Spurs’ most famous wins of recent years after our 3-1 victory over Real Madrid in midweek, Pochettino’s side will have no time to celebrate. His side host London rivals Crystal Palace later today at Wembley Stadium, and he’ll be desperate for us to return to winning ways in the league against Roy Hodgon’s bottom of the table ‘eagles’ side. Pacy forward Wilfred Zaha and former Spurs man Andros Townsend will probably both start up front, providing us with our biggest goal threat. I’m confident we’ll carry on from our spectacular result in midweek, with another dominant display against Crystal Palace. COYS
My predicted lineup:(3-4-2-1) Vorm, Sanchez, Dier, Vertonghen, Aurier, Dembele, Dele, Eriksen, Son, Kane(c).
Subs from: Gazzaniga, Winks, Davies, Sissoko, Walker-Peters, Nkoudou, Llorente
Absentees: Alderweireld, Lloris, Wanyama, Lamela.
My score prediction: 4-0 to Spurs courtesy of a brace from Son and Harry Kane.
One to watch: One of the most skilful players in the premier league Ivory Coast international Wilfred Zaha is a player that Pochettino will know well. Having been strongly linked with the pacy winger in recent seasons, Zaha has the ability to take on and beat any player on the pitch, he also has a fine goal scoring record. Due to injury problems in Hodgons’s side, Zaha will likely feature as an out and out striker.
