English Premier League, Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 5th November 2017
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
Tottenham bounced back from a series of defeats with a priceless 3-1 win in the midweek Champions League fixture against the defending champions Real Madrid. The team lost considerable ground in the Premier League title race with the 1-0 loss against Manchester United are handed a boost with the win. Also, they are in a positive vibe with the return of Harry Kane, who missed the trip to Old Trafford with an injury.
The defeated against United is Spur’s second defeat in Premier League this season, the previous coming at home against Chelsea on matchday 2. They are currently third in the table 8 points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
Crystal Palace continue on their road to recovery and this time they fought back from 2 goals down to hold West Ham to a draw. This helped them earn 4 points from three games after having gone on a 7 match win-less run at the start of the season.
Away from home, Palace lost all their five games so far and are yet to register a goal. Also, they have a terrible record against top sides having lost to Manchester sides – City 0-5 and United 0-4.
Tottenham vs Crystal Palace: Head-to-head
Spurs won the last four Premier League games against Palace.
The two games last season ended with the same 1-0 full-time score line.
Also, Spurs are unbeaten in the five Premier League home games against Palace so far, 3 wins and 2 draws. Palace managed only 1 goal during the period and all the games recorded under 2.5 goals.
Tottenham vs Crystal Palace: Predictions
On paper, this is a huge mismatch and with form on their side Spurs look good to make amends for the loss at Old Trafford last weekend.
Except the 4-1 win against Liverpool, the Whites haven’t made the most of the scoring opportunities at home this season. With Palace expected to pack the defense, this could be a low scoring affair.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 Spurs win
