Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace

Tottenham will be aiming to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton when they take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League round 27. Spurs are eager to move closer to the Champions League berth and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the fellow capital club. All Pedro Porro, Destiny Udogie, and Manor Solomon are major doubts, but there are no suspended players in the home team.

The Eagles, on the other hand, outclassed Burnley 3-0 in their last league match, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Heung-Min Son and Co. As Tottenham emerged triumphant in each of the previous eight meetings with Palace at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, we are tempted to put our money on Ange Postecoglou’s troops. As for the away side, both Eberechi Eze and Will Hughes are major doubts, while all Marc Guehi, Michael Olise, Nathan Ferguson, and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi remain in the recovery room.

How the bookies view it

Tottenham Hotspur are heavy favourites with home advantage and their best price is just 13/25 at Unibet. Crystal Palace are as big as 11/2 with Wjcasino while the draw pays 7/2 with most firms.

Tottenham Hotspur x Crystal Palace

Recent head to head

Spurs won 2-1 at Selhurst Park earlier this season and have held the upper hand in this fixture of late, winning five of the last six meetings. The Eagles have a poor record away to Tottenham, losing seven in a row since an FA Cup win in 2016.

Players to watch

Son Heung-min would have enjoyed the two-week break more than most in Tottenham’s squad after the exertions of being with South Korea at the Asian Cup. The forward scored against Crystal Palace earlier in the season and is 6/5 at BoyleSports to repeat the trick,

Spurs leave space in behind their full-backs and Glasner will be hoping Jordan Ayew can exploit that. The forward has netted in his last two outings and looks overpriced at 6/1 with Unibet for another goal.

Anything else catch the eye?

Tottenham Hotspur are usually good value for goals at both ends and they’ve kept just one clean sheet since the turn of the year. Glasner is renowned for setting teams up to attack as well so it bodes well for a decent game. Combining BTTS with over 2.5 goals pays 19/20 at Ladbrokes while over 1.5 first-half strikes is 27/20 at Coral.

Postecoglou’s high defensive lines makes offsides another good option and backing over 3.5 Crystal Palace offsides pays 5/4 with SkyBet. Betting on over 5.5 match offsides also appeals at evens with the same firm.

Tottenham Hotspur’s defence always gives the opposition chances so it could pay to back some Eagles players for shots on target. Ayew looks good at 6/4 with Wjcasino to test the keeper while centre forward Jean-Philippe Mateta is 10/11 at Paddy Power for the same bet.
