Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace Match Analysis & Prediction
06/05/2023 5:00 pm
Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Crystal Palace in Saturday’s Premier League London derby.
While Ryan Mason’s side were beaten 4-3 by Liverpool at Anfield in their most recent game, the Eagles won by the same scoreline against fellow London rivals West Ham United.
Despite Mason’s insistence that his side were superior ‘ by a country mile’, the scoreline is the only statistic that matters, and Tottenham’s fourth successive game without a win leaves them down in sixth in the standings, nine points behind Manchester United thanks to the Red Devils’ defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion on Thursday.
While there was a lot for Mason to feel proud about at Anfield, 15 goals conceded in Spurs’ last four games is alarming to say the least, and since their goalless draw with AC Milan two months ago, Tottenham have scored and shipped at least one goal in each of their last eight games.
Thanks to a fourth win from six matches since Roy Hodgson’s homecoming, Palace have leapfrogged Chelsea into 11th place in the standings on the coveted 40-point mark, and the Eagles’ Premier League safety could be assured this weekend if results below them go their way.
Hodgson’s impact in such a short span of time has been impressive, but two clean sheets in 10 Premier League matches is not all that reassuring before a trip to Tottenham, who beat the Eagles 4-0 at Selhurst Park back on January 4.
Boxing Day 2021 was also a pleasant affair for the Lilywhites, as they claimed a 3-0 home victory over Crystal Palace, who suffered seven consecutive defeats away to Spurs and are without a win on Tottenham’s territory since 1997.
