Confirmed: Tottenham and Crystal Palace line-ups

WH Lane

Here is how Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace will line up this weekend:

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Crystal Palace to White Hart Lane this afternoon as the two sides go head-to-head in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Tottenham are currently flying high in the Premier League and fighting hard in three competitions, but with the business end of the season approaching it will be a tough ask for Mauricio Pochettino’s side to maintain their challenge in this competition as well in the league and in Europe.

That said Spurs certainly have the strength in depth to have a very good go on all three fronts.

Palace are currently 13th in the Premier League table and they will know that this competition will give them a great chance to have something to play for over the next few months, yet they will have to be at their best to overcome Tottenham in their own backyard.

These two sides have met five times previously in the FA Cup with Spurs winning the last two encounters 4-0 and 3-0 respectively.
