Tottenham vs Crystal Palace – Premier League preview and team news

Tottenham and Crystal Palace will both be hoping to bounce back from disappointing midweek results when the meet on Saturday at White Hart Lane.

Losing 3-0 away to rivals Chelsea was far from the ideal result for Spurs, but Mauricio Pochettino came away pleased with his side’s efforts in a game where clinical finishing proved the difference.

While results have slightly improved of late, it still appears that Pochettino does not know his best team, but the win over Everton in their last home outing was unquestionably a step in the right direction. The key now is to find consistency, so nothing less than a win will be expected here.

Four points in games against Liverpool and Swansea City looked to be the start of a good run for Palace, but despite seeing a lot of the ball and having most of the territory in their meeting with Aston Villa, they slipped to a disappointing defeat.

They lack consistency in their attacking play, with the final ball too often erratic although there is an absence of a regular scorer. Jason Puncheon has not hit the heights since his exploits towards the end of last season, while summer signing Fraizer Campbell has not yet hit the heights.

Kyle Walker is still unavailable for Tottenham, who have doubts over Emmanuel Adebayor, Danny Rose, Etienne Capoue and Andros Townsend.

The visitors are without defenders Damien Delaney and Adrian Mariappa, but Joe Ledley and Dwight Gayle should be available despite minor injuries.
