Preview: Crystal Palace v Tottenham

9 January 2015




CLICK HERE to join the debate in the Crystal Palace v Tottenham fanzone ahead of this Premier League clash. 

ABOUT
Tottenham arrive in south London on Saturday for the evening kick-off on an impressive run that has seen them win six and lose just one of their last nine Premier League matches 

In their last league encounter they beat Chelsea 5-3 on the opening day of 2015 at White Hart Lane and on the scoresheet that evening was Harry Kane, who has now scored five goals in his last five Premier League matches. 

This will be Alan Pardew's first game as Palace manager at Selhurst Park and he'll be looking at ending a run of eight Premier League games without a win.

Should his side go ahead then Pardew better beware as Spurs have recovered more points from losing positions than anyone else in the division this season (12), but they have also conceded five penalties this term, another league high.


TEAM NEWS
Crystal Palace: Mile Jedinak and Yannick Bolasie are away on international duty but James McArthur is available again after missing last week's FA Cup tie against Dover Athletic with a knock. 

Marouane Chamakh is still on the comeback trail after picking up a hamstring injury last month.

Tottenham Hotspur : The visitors will assess the fitness of Erik Lamela, who has a calf injury and Ryan Mason who is recovering from a hamstring injury. However Nabil Bentelab is away with Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations.

DeAndre Yedlin has completed his move from Seattle Sounders and could feature in the game.
