After recording a good 0-0 draw with League One side Wycombe Wanderers inside 90 minutes (Spurs lost on penalties, as Wycombe won the extra point) on Tuesday in the Papa Johns Trophy, Spurs’ Under 21 side will face Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon (the game starts at 14:00pm) at Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace are a very good side in Division One of the Premier League 2, and they have started the 2022/23 season really well, picking up ten points from their opening four league games of the season. I watched Crystal Palace’s Under 21 side in a league game recently, and I was very impressed with John-Kymani Gordon, David Ozoh and Killian Phillips. Spurs will be hoping to get another good result this Saturday, after doing well against Wycombe Wanderers during the week. I will be going to the game with Crystal Palace on Saturday, and I would like to wish the Spurs team all the very best of luck for the match.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Keeley, Cesay, Muir, Sayers, Ashcroft, Matthew Craig, John (c), Mundle, Donley, Mathurin, Santiago.
Subs from: Maguire, Abbott, Dorrington, Robson, Lankshear.
Doubtful: Jamie Bowden, Alfie Devine, Charlie Sayers.
Previous meeting: Spurs 1-4.
My score prediction: 2-2.
My one to watch: John-Kymani Gordon (19). The Crystal Palace winger has started the 2022/23 season really well, scoring three goals and providing two assists, from four Premier League 2 matches this season. I have been impressed with how he has played in the games that I have seen him involved in, in the past.
