Preview: Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur

25 February 2018

Palace aim to end a five-game losing streak against Tottenham Hotspur on Sundafternoon, however that’ll be a tough ask against a side that haven’t tasted defeat in any competition since the middle of December.

While recent history against the Lilywhites is against them, Palace have lost just one of their last 10 league games at Selhurst Park, which came against Spurs' neighbours Arsenal. In fact, they have only failed to find the net once in that run, and that was against league leaders Manchester City.

Despite being the only club in the top-flight to remain unbeaten in 2018, Spurs have picked up just nine points from the last 27 on their travels, giving another boost to Roy Hodgson and his Palace players.

Spurs' silverware search still intact


Mauricio Pochettino’s team have won eight and drawn six of their last 14 games in all competitions since being humbled 4-1 by Manchester City in the lead up to the festive fixtures, but none of those victories would have tasted any sweeter than their last Premier League encounter as a solitary Harry Kane goal beat Arsenal.

Victory over the Gunners increased the cushion between the north London rivals to seven points, allowing Spurs to cling onto the coattails of their rivals for a UEFA Champions League spot.

Spurs hope to enjoy more memorable nights in that competitions such as the one they had against Juventus nearly two weeks ago. Having found themselves 2-0 down after just nine minutes against the Italian champions, goals from Kane and Christian Eriksen gives them the edge going into the second leg at Wembley next week.

However their FA Cup run has proved anything but easy, as after requiring a replay against Newport County in round four, last weekend saw them held by Rochdale, with the extra fixtures providing Pochettino with further headaches as he aims to end a decade-long wait for silverware.

View From The Opposition

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino: "For me it will be a big battle. Roy and his staff are doing a fantastic job. It will be good to see them again. But for me it will be a battle. We need to match them in the areas of motivation, ready to fight and then of course try to deliver our way and our game.

"Of course it will be very tough. It will be very important to win the three points, fighting for the top four. The idea is to win, the idea if to fight, to be ready. The three points are massive for us."

Palace go into the game with 12 first team players unavailable through injury with Mamadou Sakho, Joel Ward, Jeffrey Schlupp and Martin Kelly are closing in on returns, but won't make this game.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Julian Speroni, Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon and Connor Wickham are all out long-term, while Wilfried Zaha is a few more weeks away from a recovery.

Matchday Stats

Spurs will be looking to win three consecutive away league games against Crystal Palace for the first time in their history.

Palace have kept just one clean sheet in their last 27 top-flight London derbies.

Palace have scored five Premier League penalties this season, with no side scoring more (level with Everton and Man City); Spurs are one of three sides yet to concede from the spot.

Since his debut last February, Luka Milivojevic has scored more Premier League penalties than any other player, and more than all-but one of the 16 other teams to compete in both seasons.

Harry Kane's two goals in seven league appearances against Palace for Spurs is his second-worst record against a side he has played on at least seven occasions for the club in the league.

Christian Benteke has been directly involved in six goals in his last nine league games (two goals, four assists).

Only Manchester City and Watford (nine) have scored more goals in the 90th minute or later than Palace's four in the Premier League this season.

Tottenham have scored a joint-league-high seven goals from free kick situations this season, although none of these have come from directly.

Only Everton (13) have picked up more points from losing positions this season so far than Palace (12), level with Arsenal and Bournemouth. However, Spurs have lost a joint-league low two points from games in which they’ve been ahead.

Match Reports

Report: Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

25 February 2018

It went to the final minutes, but Palace’s battling performance against Tottenham Hotspur ended in defeat.

Up against it, the Eagles put their bodies on the line to deny the visitors for 88 minutes and were inches away from a big point until Harry Kane struck.

Spurs had two early chances to take the lead but failed to take them. The first saw a Ben Davies cutback cleared for a corner.

Minutes later a chance fell to Harry Kane after Patrick van Aanholt’s attempted clearance, but the England striker was denied from point-blank range by Wayne Hennessey in the Palace goal.

The first half was spent largely in the Palace half, but Spurs struggled to fashion any clear cut chances against a drilled and determined backline. All of the Eagles’ defensive players were called on throughout the first 45, with debutant Aaron Wan-Bissaka impressing.

It was all square at the break and the second half then continued in a similar vein to the first, Spurs enjoying much of the possession and Palace looking to exploit openings on the counter.

Kane could – and should – have notched the game’s opening goal on 55 minutes, but somehow stabbed the ball wide, unmarked, from five yards out.

Despite their dominance of the ball, Spurs struggled to break through the Palace lines. McArthur, Milivojevic and Riedewald ran themselves into the ground to deny the visitors space, protecting the backline and harrying the opposition.

Serge Aurier had a golden opportunity on 84 minutes, arriving on to a low cross at the back post, but the ball got caught in his feet and he somehow failed to convert. Kane then flashed an effort across goal and wide as Palace weathered the storm.

In the end it was late, late heartbreak for the Eagles. A deep Spurs corner found Kane at the back post and he guided a cushioned header back across the face of goal and into the far side of the net on 88 minutes.

The final minutes passed by without incident, leaving Palace without a point to show for their hard work.

Palace: Hennessey; Wan-Bissaka, Fosu-Mensah, Tomkins (Delaney, 84), Van Aanholt; Milivojevic (c), Riedewald, McArthur; Townsend (Lee, 86), Sørloth; Benteke.

Subs: Henry, Souare, Kirby, Rakip, Lokilo.

Spurs: Lloris (c); Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Wanyama, Dembele (Son, 80), Eriksen, Alli, Lamela (Lucas, 66); Kane.

Subs: Vorm, Trippier, Rose, Foyth, Sissoko.
