Julian Speroni targets Crystal Palace win v Tottenham Hotspur

Julian Speroni says that Crystal Palace are looking for a win, not a draw, against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League today.

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni has warned Tottenham Hotspur that his side are determined to win at White Hart Lane in the Premier League today.

The Eagles are currently 15th in the league table with 13 points from 14 matches, just a point above the relegation zone.

“After the Villa game I couldn't understand how we didn't get a point out of the game,” Speroni told Palace’s official website.

“We had so many chances but for some reason the ball didn't seem to want to go in so we ended up losing but I was pleased with the performance because we played really well.

“We've been creating a lot, especially against Villa, and we hope to do that against Tottenham too. Any point away from home is always a good point but if you go into games with that mentality then you tend to lose.

"You have to go out there thinking you can win, try to win and then see what happens.”

Palace will be the underdogs today, as Tottenham have a better team and home advantage.

Spurs will head into the game on the back of a 3-0 drubbing by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, but they will take inspiration from last weekend’s performance against Everton.

The North London outfit won that particular contest 2-1, but Palace are not going to make it easy for them today.

Tottenham have shown vulnerability at the back and, as Speroni says, the Eagles will be looking to create chances.
