Crystal Palace vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Saturday 11th September 2021
Kick off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
Tottenham will be the favourites to win this game and the surprise league leaders will be hoping that the international break will not have upset their flow.
Crystal Palace are in 14th place and are waiting for their first win of the season but have drawn their last 2 in a row. After a shaky start it was expected that Patrick Vieira’s team would struggle against West Ham in their last game but they struck back twice to draw that game 2-2. It showed some fighting spirit from the team.
Tottenham are in 1st place and they have won each game so far by the same score of 1-0. They beat Wolves in their last game and they are the only side not to have conceded yet and that includes beating the current champions Manchester City.
With the other teams playing later in the day Tottenham could stretch their lead out to 5 points with victory at Saturday lunchtime.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Head to Head
- Last season the clubs drew this fixture 1-1.
- It’s been 4 games at Crystal Palace since Tottenham recorded a win going back to 2018.
- The last 3 meetings in a row has witnessed both sides to score.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Prediction
This should be a lively game and Palace will not be an easy opponent even if Tottenham has the better players.
There will be extra incentive for Tottenham to win given that Palace’s manager is a former Arsenal great in Vieira and he caused a lot of misery throughout the years for Tottenham.
This could be a close game but we will opt for an away victory. Tottenham are playing well and looking very confident but they will have to dig really deep for victory here.
