Vavel's prediction

Courtesy of VAVEL UK's Jonny Bentley: 

Crystal Palace scored five times away from home for the first time in their Premier League history. The return of Wilfried Zaha helped that cause. Christian Benteke will also take a lot of confidence from his brace against West Brom. The Belgian has struggled since his big money move from Liverpool, particularly in recent years, but Roy Hodgson will be hoping that the forward can rediscover his brilliant 

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last three in matches against big-six opposition. Two wins. One draw. Zero goals conceded. Jose Mourinho is well and truly back! They have also illustrated a lot of grit and determination to break down the strong resolve of teams like Burnley and West Brom, who looked to sit deep themselves. 

Palace benefits from the fact that they were playing against ten men for the majority of the match against West Brom. They also benefited from the fact that West Brom are probably the worst team in the division. Such grace won’t arrive with Spurs. 

Prediction: 0-1

Pre-match comments: José Mourinho

On winning Manager of the Month:

“It says ‘Manager of the Month’ but for me it’s ‘Team of the Month’ or ‘Staff of the Month’ because this is about the players and about all these guys that are here with me, the coaches, my assistants, the sports science guys, others who are not here, the analysts and lots of people that work on the staff. Thank you for this, but it’s not ‘Manager of the Month’, it’s ‘Staff of the Month’, it’s ‘Team of the Month’.”

Pre-match comments: Roy Hodgson


On Spurs:

“It’s going to be a tight league this year. I think that Tottenham will be in and around it [the top] for the entirety of the season.”

“It’s going to be very difficult to limit the likes of Kane and Son to no chances. They’re also players who don’t need many chances to punish you.”

On his side:


"Christian Benteke has been very good. We’ve always known that he’s a quality centre forward and it was great for him to show the world that last week."

We brought Ebere in to do a job in that position and he’s certainly shown that he’s capable in the Premier League. He, like all of our attackers, compliment each other well and hopefully that leads to more goals.”

Team news: Spurs

Tanguy Ndombele, who came off in the North London Derby last week, should be fit to start on Sunday. 

However, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela are both doubts for this game.

Team news: Palace

After returning to training in the week, summer signing Nathan Ferguson picked up a muscle injury which has halted his progression once again. 

Long-term injuries such as, Connor Wickham, Martin Kelly and Wayne Hennessey, all remain sidelined. 

17:22a month ago

London derby

José Mourinho Spurs side currently find themselves top of the Premier League after a scintillating start to the season. 

The Harry Kane and Son Heung-min has really flourished under Mourinho, and Palace will have to be at their very best to stop this rampant Spurs side. 

Palace come off the back of their biggest away win in top-flight history and will need that free flowing confidence if they are to get anything form this game.
