Crystal Palace vs Tottenham – The Spurs’ second half of the season has not started properly. They have dropped out of the top four, and with sixth-placed Liverpool gaining ground, they must find a solution to their problems fast.
Fans are hoping that the match against the faltering Crystal Palace will be the break they have been looking for. Palace began their season with a lopsided 0-3 loss at home against Fulham.
They made amends with a victory over in-form Bournemouth. The real test will come today (Wednesday), when the injured Antonio Conte and his team visit Selhurst Park.
Harry Kane is looking for redemption after missing a penalty against France, and if he can lead Tottenham to a top-four finish, the English captain may find that elusive peace of mind.
But Erik ten Hag seems to have given Manchester United a new lease on life, and sixth-placed Liverpool is going for its fifth straight league win.
Conte and Kane must appear on Wednesday at all costs to avoid complicating matters. Spurs have a strong head-to-head record against Palace, which they will rely heavily on this game week.
Expect a challenging game for either team, with the Spurs edging out a much-needed victory.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham – Betting Analysis
Tottenham won their most recent meeting 3-0. In three of the last five meetings, both teams scored.
Three or more goals have been scored in the last three meetings. This ground’s visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet in five years.
Palace have won six games in the English Premier League this season, with five of those triumphs coming against opponents ranked 14th or worse in the table.
Tottenham will be a whole new challenge for them, especially since Conte’s team is getting close to giving up.
Spurs also have a better head-to-head record against this opponent over the years. All of this points to a win for the Spurs on Wednesday.
It will not be simple, however. The Spurs’ defence has been fragile recently, and Palace seldom fails to score at home. Expect a high-scoring game.
