Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur are the first side back in action after the international break, as Spurs travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
Premier League Preview
It has been a fine start to the new Premier League season for Tottenham Hotspur, and they will be looking to make it three wins from three when they travel to London rivals Crystal Palace on Saturday. Spurs are yet to hit momentum in the final third of the pitch, as they have scored just three goals. But, they have been excellent defensively to this point; allowing no goals against in their games so far. Spurs went into the international break after beating Watford 1-0, which continued their perfect start to the new season. Heung Min-Son continued his excellent start to the campaign with his second goal in three games. A title challenge still looks to be a considerable long shot, but they have laid down excellent framework for a potential push for a Champions League fight this season.
Many people expected Crystal Palace to struggle this season, but they have picked up two points from a tricky run of three fixtures to start the new season. The Eagles were only beaten on the opening day of the season, as Chelsea handed out a 3-0 defeat. However, since then, they have drawn their last two games. Palace showed their fight in their most recent fixture before the international break, as they twice came from behind to get a point against in-form West Ham United. Conor Gallagher could be one of the most important signings made by Palace, as he opened his account for the new season with a brace at the London Stadium.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur Head to Head
Palace haven’t claimed a win against Spurs in the league since January 2015. However, they have knocked Tottenham out of the FA Cup on two occasions in the past five years. Spurs have won three of the last five league meetings, which includes their 4-1 success in March.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
Tottenham have started the new season in excellent form, but maintaining that record will be essential to their chances of finishing in the top four. Palace may have taken confidence from their last two results, but it is hard to look past a win for the visitors this coming weekend.
