Spurs’ Under 18 side travel to south London to face Crystal Palace on Saturday (the game starts at 11:00am), in a Premier League South fixture. Spurs were very unlucky not to have picked up at least a point against Chelsea in their last league fixture, as it was a game that they lost 2-1. However, were it not for two great goals from Chelsea in that match, then Stuart Lewis’ side would have got something from the game. Crystal Palace have picked up 14 points from their opening eight Premier League South games of this season, and they are currently in second place in the league table. In the last game it was great to see Rio Kyerematen, Will Andiyapan and Alfie Dorrington return to the Spurs Under 18 side squad. This should be a great game of football, but it will also be a tough game for Spurs, with Crystal Palace winning both league fixtures with Spurs at this level last season. I would like to wish Spurs all the vey best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Gunter (c), Abbott, Chaplin, Dorrington, McKnight, Kyerematen, Willhoft-King, Williams, Donley, Akhamrich, Lankshear.
Subs from: Krasniqi, Andiyapan, Hall, Owen, Ajayi.
Previous meeting: Spurs 2-4.
My score prediction: Spurs 3-2.
My one to watch: Junior Dixon (18). The Crystal Palace second year scholar has scored a very impressive total of eight Premier League South goals from seven appearances this season for the Crystal Palace Under 18 side.
