Crystal Palace Preview – Hodgson benefiting from refreshed Zaha?

For the second league game in the last four, Crystal Palace (W5 D1 L5) found the back of the net on at least four occasions – a feat they had previously achieved only three times in 117 matches under manager Roy Hodgson – as Wilfried Zaha also reaffirmed his importance to this team with a brace and assist in last week’s 5-1 hammering of West Brom at The Hawthorns. The Ivorian having sat out their last two results (D1 L1).

It was also the first time Palace scored five in an away fixture in the Premier League, while you know it was something truly unprecedented when Christian Benteke is on target twice. The Belgian netting more in that one outing against the Baggies than in his past 31 league appearances combined. The ultimate goal now, though, will be another three points that would see them return to the top half of the table.

Palace only managed one in this same fixture last season, however, that 1-1 draw brought an end to their nine-game losing sequence against Tottenham, who have reigned supreme at Selhurst Park on four of the past five league meetings. Moreover, Opta inform us that The Eagles have tasted defeat in 18 of their last 22 games against teams beginning the day in the top-four of the Premier League.


1-1 Draw (Correct Score)



Tottenham Preview – Jose has Spurs at peak of their powers?

The local bragging rights in North London belong to Tottenham (W7 D3 L1), who maintained their slender advantage at the top of the Premier League with a disciplined and well-drilled performance in their 2-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur stadium against Arsenal. Two moments of real quality came to define the contest last Sunday; Son Heung-min finding the net from 25-yards before teeing up Harry Kane in a deadly counter.

Speaking after the game, Kane spoke of how he and strike partner Son were approaching the peak of their careers, which would suggest Spurs’ title credentials are more credible than some want to believe. The duo have now combined for 11 Premier League goals so far this season, and are now two shy of the all-time record, set by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton in 1994/95, in a single campaign.

Jose Mourinho’s side appear to be peaking as a collective, too. It is now five wins in six league games having not lost in ten (W7 D3) since Everton inflicted a 1-0 defeat in London on the opening weekend. On the road, Spurs remain unbeaten in their last eight league fixtures, winning all but one held this season (W4 D1) – stopped in their tracks another of their London rivals, drawing 0-0 at Chelsea.
