Spurs’ under 18 side face Premier League South leaders Crystal Palace on Saturday morning (the game starts at 11am), at Hotspur Way. Crystal Palace have been excellent so far in the Premier League South, in what is their first ever season in the league. Crystal Palace’s top scorer in the league this season is David Omilabu (18) who has scored a very impressive 18 goals from 16 league appearances, so he will definitely be a player that the Spurs defenders will have to be aware of. Spurs’ top scorer this season – Dane Scarlett, will likely miss out on Saturday, because of injury. Scarlett scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture in south London, as Spurs won 5-1. Crystal Palace’s league form has been very good of late, so Spurs will likely find it difficult to do the double over them this season, especially without their top scorer Dane Scarlett. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for Saturday mornings game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Hayton, Cassanova, Muir, Paskotsi (c), Kyezu, Matthew Craig, Michael Craig, Mathurin, Mundle, Santiago, Donley.
Subs from: Maguire, Dorrington, Hackett, Davies, Haysman.
Injured/unavailable: Dane Scarlett.
Doubtful: Thimothee Lo-Tutala.
Previous meeting: Spurs 5-1.
My score prediction: 2-2.
My one to watch: Centre-forward David Omilabu (18), who has scored 18 league goals from 16 appearances this season.
