Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 26 July 2020. Scheduled kick-off 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET at the Selhurst Park.
The Spurs are placed seventh in the table at the moment, and they are trailing by a single point below the sixth-placed Wolves. In order for the former to make it into Europe, they need to have a top-six finish.
Likely, Jose Mourinho will hope that his team will win this last game of their league campaign, while the Wolves stumble in their respective fixture. What provides hope for the Spurs is that the Wanderers are taking on Chelsea in the final match-day, and could be counted on to drop points.
On the other side we have the Glaziers, who have been the worst team in the whole competition along with Norwich for the past several weeks. They might have avoided relegation, but that’s only due to the performances they put in earlier in the season.
Considering the recent form of both teams, the determination of Mourinho’s men, and their superiority in h2h fixtures, expect a Tottenham win this Sunday.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Head-to-head (h2h)

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Prediction
Mourinho’s men recorded a confidence-boosting and much-needed win the last match-day, against Leicester. The scorecard read 3-0.
In the meanwhile, Roy Hodgson’s men lost 2-0 on the road the past game week, against Wolves. It was their seventh defeat on the trot, and they had also failed to score in six of these seven match-ups. Also note that they had conceded two or more goals in six of these seven fixtures as well.
At home, they are on a three-match losing run. On the other hand, their counterparts are on a five-game unbeaten run (of which four were wins), and they had also scored a total of eight goals from their past three match-ups.
Importantly, they had won the reverse fixture with a 4-0 scoreline, and had won nine of the previous eleven h2h games. Moreover, they are also on a four-fixture winning run at this stadium in PL match-ups.
Finally, while they are desperate for a win, the Glaziers have nothing to lose, and have already ensured their safety. As such, another loss would not cost them much. For the reasons, expect a Tottenham win this final game week.
