Crystal Palace hosts Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur
Crystal Palace hosts Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur at the Selhurst Park in London. This is a game from the 12th round of the competition. Let’s discuss it a little bit more.
Crystal Palace approach this round from 11th place in the Premier League. Roy Hodgson’s team have won 16 points so far and they have a record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses. That’s some balanced performance we should say. Crystal Palace’s main goal this season is going to be staying on a safe distance from the relegation zone – something they are doing well right now.
Last week Palace celebrated their 5th win for the season. The Londoners traveled to face West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns and they enjoyed a solid 5-1 win. It was one of Palace’s best performances this season. Wilfred Zaha shined with two goals for the visitors while Christian Benteke scored two times as well.
Tottenham Hotspur are leading the Premier League standings with 24 points won so far. Spurs are on par with the leader Liverpool, but they are ahead because of a better goal difference. The manager Jose Mourinho does not admit it, but it seems that Spurs are contenders for the title this season.
Last week Tottenham achieved their fourth win in the last five rounds. Spurs faced Arsenal in the great derby of Northern London and celebrated a 2-0 win at their own Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The dynamic duo Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane scored Tottenham’s both goals in the game.
That’s our preview for the Premier League fixture between Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur at the Selhurst Park in London. Can Tottenham continue with their brilliant performances since the beginning of the campaign? Spurs are great so far, but Palace could be really tough. Mourinho’s team must give one hundred percent at the Selhurst Park.
