Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur will face Crystal Palace this afternoon.
Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League this afternoon when they take on Crystal Palace at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs will head into the London derby against Palace on the back of a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the North London derby.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are aiming to challenge for the league title this season, and they simply have to pick up all three points against Palace.
The Eagles are doing well at the moment and have actually picked up more points than Spurs.
This is how Tottenham and Palace will line up at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League this afternoon:
Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Ward, Cahill, Sakho, Van Aanholt, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Kouyate, Townsend, Zaha, Ayew
Subs: Hennessey, Tomkins, Riedewald, McCarthy, Camarasa, Meyer, Benteke
Meanwhile, former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has predicted Pochettino’s side to win against Palace.
Redknapp has also backed Spurs to finish third in the Premier League table this season, but does not expect them to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the title.
The former Spurs boss has changed his opinion about the team since the start of the season about their chances of winning the title.
Redknapp said on talkSPORT (7:41am, September 13, 2019): ” I would have to fancy Spurs [against Palace], I think Spurs are due to go on a run. I see Spurs finishing third again this year.
“I did say at the start that we would get a lot closer this year, but looking at the top two, I don’t think that they will. The top two look different class, Man City, Liverpool.”
