Crystal Palace will be at home at Selhurst Park as the Eagles play host to Tottenham. Both these sides are from London meaning that we are going to be treated to another London derby. London derby games always result in good football so I am interested to see how this game turns out.
Crystal Palace have massive injury issues with their star player Wilfried Zaha out injured. The winger will be back in a few weeks but until then it will be the like of Benteke and Townend that will need to step up and get the job done for the team. The Eagles are a good team but they have found themselves in a relegation battle so they will need to fight hard if they wish to get survive at the end of the season.
On the other side of the coin, Tottenham also needs to win this game. The Spurs are in a heated battle for a spot in the Champions League meaning that every point counts. This is a game that Tottenham will expect to win but it is never easy traveling to South London since the Crystal Palace crowd do a good job at making Selhurst Park a fortress.
Having said all that, I think Tottenham should still be good enough to get a win. Crystal Palace have too many injuries and that will make this game too much for them. As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good price so betting on Tottenham to win is not worth the bet. I think this will be a low scoring game since Crystal Palace will defend well so I am going to suggest that the under 2.5 goals is the best bet for this fixture.
