Crystal Palace vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:15 UK/ 15:15 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
The Spurs are hell-bent on securing the league title this season, after several years of near-misses. They are at the top of the table at the moment, and guided by the charismatic Jose Mourinho, fans really believe that the team is going to do wonders.
Defense has been the hallmark of the squad so far (as they remain the only team in the whole competition yet to concede ten goals), along with the terrifying form of Son Heung-min, and Harry Kane.
However, they need to be wary of the threat posed by defending champions Liverpool, who are placed second with the same number of points. The Reds take on the struggling Fulham this weekend, and are expected to easily win.
Should Jose’s men keep hold of their top-most spot, they have to win this Sunday at any cost at the Selhurst Park.
The Glaziers have a total of three wins in the last three months, and all three had come against the teams that were promoted from the Championship. Other than those fixtures, the team has found it hard to deliver good performances.
On top of that, Mourinho’s men also have a good h2h record against them over the years.
By the looks of things, expect a Tottenham win this weekend.

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Prediction
Roy Hodgson’s men recorded a 1-5 win on the road the last match-day, against West Brom. In the meantime, the toppers of the table delivered a 2-0 win at home against arch-rivals, Arsenal.
Going on, Jose’s men were unbeaten in 19 of their former 20 overall games, and impressively, 15 of these were wins. They had also won eight of their former eleven fixtures on the road, and have lost just once away from home since July.
In addition, they have built a great deal of momentum all through this season, and are determined to remain at the top. They also have a great h2h record against the Glaziers over the years, as mentioned above.
Likely, expect Tottenham to register a convincing win this Sunday at the Selhurst Park.
