As Alan Pardew takes charge of his first Premier League game in charge of Crystal Palace the question is will Tottenham Hotspur spoil the party in Selhurst Park tomorrow? Tottenham's win over Chelsea was their first win over a top four side in a long time. Manuel Pochettino has taken a while to get his system in place but Christian Erickson , Harry Kane and co are finally adapted to the system and look like they may be able to bring Tottenham into the top four while implementing it. With Hugo Lloris in goals Tottenham are generally alway going to keep it tight and have a chance of winning games such is the French internationals brilliance.
With Crystal Palace strugglng they sacked Neil Warnock and appointed Alan Pardew. Pardew is a brave man taking the job as Palace lie in the relegation zone and in my opinion have the poorest squad in the league. Signings will be needed in January, but I am not sure if they will be able to attract the goalscorers they need. The main problem for Palace has been scoring goals they havent won a Premier League game in eight and they need to start winning games, turning draws into wins and picking up three points wherever they can. This is going to be a tough ask for Palace with Jedinak , Bolasie missing due to International commitments with the Asian Cup and African cup of nations.
I am going to take Tottenham here. I think they have enough quality to win this one even if it is away from home. There is some value in this play given Tottenham's very strong form and the fact that they have won four of their last five away games.
