Confirmed Crystal Palace v Tottenham lineups: Son starts, Lamela on the bench

The Crystal Palace Eagle

Here is how Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur will line up at Selhurst Park this afternoon...

Crystal Palace will be looking to end a poor run of form today as they host title challengers Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park this afternoon.

The Eagles haven't won in their last five matches, and haven't even scored a goal during that time, with Alan Pardew's men struggling in front of goal.

The absence of Yannick Bolasie continues this afternoon, with the DR Congo international winger still out injured, but Connor Wickham leads the line as he searches for form.

Wayne Hennessey keeps his place in goal despite a string of recent errors, with a midfield trio of James McArthur, Joe Ledley and Yohan Cabaye starting today's game.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are searching for a third win in seven days, after beating Sunderland 4-1 and Leicester City 2-0.

The hero of the night against Leicester was winger Son Heung-min, and he has been rewarded with a place in Spurs' starting line-up in place of Erik Lamela.

Kieran Trippier continues at right back, whilst Danny Rose is in at left back ahead of Ben Davies, who is on the bench alongside Tom Carroll, Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli and the aforementioned Lamela.

With top players such as Toby Alderweireld, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane all starting, it's a full-strength Tottenham line-up - and they will be hoping to pile the pressure on leaders Arsenal with a win today.
