James Buckley reacts on Twitter to Crystal Palace draw, makes Tottenham prediction

Crystal Palace will face Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round of the FA Cup this season.

Well-known English actor James Buckley has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the FA Cup draw.

Buckley supports Crystal Palace, who have been drawn against Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round of the prestigious cup competition.

'The Inbetweeners' star has predicted Spurs to win the tie and the FA Cup, and has also backed the North London outfit to maintain their form in the league.

The FA Cup fifth-round tie between Tottenham and Palace will be at White Hart Lane, which means that Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be favourites.

However, Palace’s chances of winning the game cannot be written off, as manager Alan Pardew has a good squad and the players have shown that they can take on the big teams.

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 42 points from 23 matches.

The North London outfit are just five points behind leaders Leicester City and are very much in the running for the league title this season.
