Next Saturday at 1:30pm GMT, on matchday 4 of the Premier League, we will see Palace play Spurs at Selhurst Park.

Champion’s League hopefuls Spurs, travel to Palace on Saturday, as first takes on fourteenth in the League.

Crystal Palace arrive at this fixture, having secured two points so far this season

Palace have been inconsistent in their previous two games, drawing 2-2 at West Ham United and 0-0 at Brentford, so a win in this fixture must be the focus.

With two draws in two games, Manager Patrick Vieira has plenty to ponder, going into the next game, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. They currently sit in fourteenth place, with a total of two points drawn two meetings and lost one game.

When Palace host Spurs, they will do so on the back of one draws on their own ground.

Victory for Crystal Palace would take their points tally to 5 so far this season.

Injury and illness have depleted Patrick Vieira’s Palace and they will likely be missing four key personnel for Saturday’s match.

League leaders Tottenham Hotspur will seek to win every game, this fixture is no exception

With two wins in a row under his belt, Nuno Espirito Santo takes his Spurs team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

They are the current League leaders with nine points having won three fixtures.

Spurs will travel to Palace with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory.

The ultimate prize this season will be for Tottenham Hotspur to finish top of the Premier League and secure automatic qualification for the Champion’s League. However, they must play each game as it comes and secure the points, if that is to be achieved.

Spurs’s squad has depth, but even so, Nuno Espirito Santo is likely to be missing two of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.

Spurs to win – odds are 51.81 percent in favour.
