In the English Premier League, Tottenham are set to host Crystal Palace in North London. 

Tottenham have had a very poor start to the season and the team looks to be lacking in many areas of the pitch. As it currently stands, Tottenham only have 5 points from their 4 games. In their last outing, Tottenham managed a 2-2 draw against Arsenal. While the result was satisfactory, Tottenham looked very poor and were lucky not to lose the fixture. Tottenham only had 45% of the possession and allowed Arsenal to have 26 shots. There seems to be tension between the board and the manager and it is unclear how settled the players are feeling. This is set to be a challenging fixture since Crystal Palace have had a very strong start to the season. 

On the other side of the coin, Crystal Palace have had an outstanding start to the season as they sit in 4th spot with 7 points from their 4 games. In their last match, Crystal Palace defeated Aston Villa 1-0. It was a professional performance by the Eagles as they controlled 53% of the ball and had 22 shots. Jordan Ayew was the star performer for Crystal Palace as he scored the only goal of the game. Crystal Palace have already beaten Manchester United and the team will be confident as they enter this match. 

Crystal Palace and Tottenham last played each other in April. The match was won 2-0 by Tottenham. Tottenham and Crystal Palace also played each other in January in the FA Cup in a match that was won 2-0 by Crystal Palace. 

This should be a close match since Tottenham are playing very poorly while Crystal Palace look in good form. I see Crystal Palace getting a draw from this match. Winning at Tottenham seems too much for the Eagles but looking at recent form, a draw seems like a very realistic outcome.
