Match between Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace to be played on Saturday 6th December 2014 at 15:00. Venue: White Hart Lane, London.
Tottenham Hotspur welcome Crystal Palace to White Hart Lane this weekend hoping to get back to winning ways after losing 3-0 at Chelsea last time out.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently just four points outside the European places so there is still much to be encouraged by this season, but they must now go on a run as they head into the busy festive period.
As for Palace, they are just a point outside the relegation zone and will know how quickly things can change. For that reason alone they will not be an easy opponent for a Tottenham side who are looking to maintain an impressive recent home record.
Tottenham injury concerns: Etienne Capoue has a knock but has a good chance of making it but Andros Townsend’s ankle injury could keep him out. Emmanuel Adebayor has a back injury and Danny Rose has a rib problem.
Tottenham absences: Kyle Walker still lacks match fitness and is unlikely to feature for another few weeks.
Palace injury concerns: Dwight Gayle andJoe Ledley have good chances of playing despite both suffering from knocks.
Palace absences: Adrian Mariappa and Damien Delaney are both unavailable.
Predicted starting line-ups:
Tottenham Hotspur – Lloris, Chiriches, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies, Mason, Bentaleb, Lennon, Eriksen, Soldado, Kane
Crystal Palace – Speroni, Kelly, Dann, Hangeland, Ward, Puncheon, Jedinak, McArthur, Bolasie, Chamakh, Gayle
