Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen believes that there will not be more than two goals in the match.

Spurs were as ordinary in the first half as they were good in the second half at Goodison last week but, whilst I think the hosts will nick it, I don’t think there will be many goals in the game,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Under 2.5 goals at 39/40.”

Palace could struggle to score goals and may not even find the net once at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon, but Spurs are unlikely to have any problem in that regard.

Tottenham have one of the best strikers in the Premier League in Harry Kane.

The England international did not have a great time at the 2016 European Championship, but one should not be surprised if the 23-year-old bags a goal or two against Palace.

Argentina international attacker Erik Lamela is in great form at the moment, and he will fancy his chances of finding the net against the Eagles.

Then there is Christian Eriksen, who is a set-piece specialist and will be dangerous with free kicks.
