Palace Preview: Eagles face Spurs seeking further league success

13 September 2019

Crystal Palace make the short trip to north London today with high hopes of continuing their fine start to the new Premier League season against Tottenham Hotspur.

Although Roy Hodgson’s men fell 2-0 the last time they met Spurs at the newly-built Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Palace will be determined to retain their high position in the league table and kick-start September in the same way they ended August.

Palace's most recent win over Mauricio Pochettino's men came in the FA Cup with a solid victory at Selhurst Park thanks to an early goal from Connor Wickham followed up by a first-half Andros Townsend penalty.

This season, Tottenham started their league campaign on a high with a 3-1 win over Aston Villa. However, the Champions League finalist's winning start to the season quickly declined following league draws against Manchester City and Arsenal and a loss against Newcastle United.

The previous three results for Spurs mean they will be raring for a victory on home turf this Saturday and the Eagles remain without an away Premier League win against Tottenham since November of 1997, which came thanks to Neil Shipperley's only goal of the game.

However, on the road, Palace’s last five league games against ‘big six’ sides have seen them pick up wins against Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United, while they were also the last Premier League side to win away at Anfield.

Team News

Tottenham have made a few changes since their last meeting against Palace, with departures including right-back Kieran Trippier moving to Atletico Madrid, forward Vincent Janssen heading to Monterrey and Georges-Kévin N’Koudou to Besiktas.

Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon, Kyle Walker-Peters and Eric Dier have all returned to training and were being assessed for selection before the weekend.

For Palace, Hodgson had stated that Martin Kelly and Wickham are unavailable to play and Scott Dann and James McArthur will need assessing. Find out what Hodgson said on the injuries by clicking here.

Ones to watch

Tottenham’s playmaker Christian Eriksen has been directly involved in seven goals in 10 Premier League appearances versus Crystal Palace (three goals, four assists), scoring and assisting in this exact fixture last season.

Palace’s Jordan Ayew has scored in each of his last two Premier League appearances and could become the first Ghanaian to score in three in a row since his brother André in 2016.

Tactical overview

Mauricio Pochettino has used two different formations in the Premier League this season – three times the Argentine has opted for a 4-2-3-1, despite having set Spurs up for their first league game of the campaign in a 4-3-1-2.

Despite the Aston Villa game on the opening day providing the Lilywhites with their only victory of the season so far, Pochettino hasn’t used it since overcoming the Villans.

With Dele Alli returning to the side as a substitute against Arsenal, playing the last 30 minutes in the 2-2 draw, Pochettino may well opt to bring in the attacking-midfielder from the start.

Match Reports

Report: Palace fall to four Spurs hits

Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Crystal Palace

14 September 2019

After a dominant first-half performance by the hosts, Crystal Palace fell 4-0 to Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon in north London.

  • Mamadou Sakho starts with James Tomkins on the bench
  • Spurs bag four in the game’s first-half; Heung-min Son netting twice and Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela claiming one each
  • Palace look more composed through an uneventful second-half

With the referee’s whistle sounding out, Tottenham Hotspur made their intentions clear from the off, forcing Vicente Guaita into a save within 30 seconds of play commencing.

Digging up the afternoon’s first flecks of turf, Christian Eriksen worked his way along Spurs’ left-wing and fed an unmarked Son in the penalty area. No doubt earlier than he had expected to, Guaita lay holding the ball with relief following the South Korean’s soft effort from 15 yards.

The same could not be said when Son received his second chance 10 minutes later, however. Latching on to a lofted Toby Alderweireld chip from deep within Spurs’ half, Son tried his luck from the opposite flank and overcame the experienced pair of Sakho and Gary Cahill to hit the ball past Guaita.

A while later, the Spurs talisman nearly struck his third attempt in 15 minutes as he raced towards a smart Harry Kane lay-off, however Guaita was not to be foiled and out-paced his adversary to suffocate the loose ball.

A damaging spell for Palace then followed, with Aurier - coming in for the injured Davinson Sanchez - orchestrating two goals in as many minutes.

In near-mirror images, the Ivorian looked to cross from the right before skewing the ball into the goal - his deflected mis-hit deceiving the Palace defence.

Just moments after the restart, Aurier found himself back on the right-wing, but this time his cross found its intended target and, looking remarkably sharp, Son was only ever going to bury Spurs’ third when he met the ball at the far post.

The home side’s fourth came shortly before half time after a period of relative inactivity, with Kane drilling a ball across the box for Lamela to strike home at the back post.

In the face of their opponent’s momentum, however, the Eagles did unsettled goalkeeper Hugo Lloris on occasions throughout the opening half, as Cheikhou Kouyate, Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Zaha all attempted chances with promise, though none would truly trouble the Frenchman.

Opening the second-half, Palace looked regrouped and better settled than they had ended the first and almost kick-started their account within minutes as Lloris was forced into a reaction save to deny Cahill at close range. 

Picking up the still-live attack and seeking to catalyse some momentum, Ayew then headed into the hands of Lloris before, minutes later, falling hard in the penalty area under the unconvinced eye of Craig Pawson.

But for all Palace looked stronger in the second-half’s first 10 minutes, they were still a way off pulling one back against their hosts and Mauricio Pochettino’s men remained a dangerous opponent.

Patrick van Aanholt was alive to their threat around the 70th minute, blocking a Moussa Sissoko effort from just yards in front of the line.

By the end of an uneventful second spell, though - Spurs having won by the half-time break - Palace would have to end the day on the end of a 4-0 loss, the game fizzling out without a glimmer of a visiting comeback.

Spurs: Lloris, Rose (Davies 76), Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Aurier, Winks (Ndombele 67), Lamela, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Kane (Moura 84).

Subs not used: Gazzaniga, Wanyama, Dier, Alli.

Palace: Guaita, Ward, Cahill, Sakho, Van Aanholt, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Kouyate (McCarthy 76), Townsend (Camarasa 85), Zaha, Ayew (Benteke 71).

Subs not used: Hennessey, Tomkins, Riedewald, Meyer.
