Tottenham Prediction

Following back-to-back defeats away at Southampton and Liverpool in recent weeks, Tottenham have dropped down to 4th place on the Premier League ladder and now trail arch-rivals, Arsenal by two points in the race for a top four finish.

Tottenham are level on 61 points with 5th placed Chelsea ahead of Wednesday night’s important fixture with London club Crystal Palace, and having now gone five matches without a win in the top flight, the hosts will be desperate to record three points here in order to stake their claim for a place in the Champions League next season.

Four defeats from these last five matches with losses to Burnley and Chelsea in addition to Southampton and Liverpool now make this a ‘must-win’ game for Spurs, but it should be noted that all four defeats were handed to them away from home.

At home, Tottenham hold a fairly decent home record of 9-1-4 25/13 which includes winning three of their last four matches on home turf with wins against Watford, Newcastle United and Leicester City.


Key-Facts – Tottenham v Crystal Palace

  • Tottenham have won 3 of their last 4 home matches in the EPL
  • Tottenham have won the last 2 home meetings against Crystal Palace
  • Crystal Palace have scored in each of their last 7 away matches


Crystal Palace Prediction

Crystal Palace’s inconsistent sequence of results continued on the weekend when they registered a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield Town, which followed on from a 2-1 loss at home to Brighton. However, two defeats from their last eight matches make Crystal Palace a potentially tricky opponent for Tottenham, especially as the visitors have made a significant improvement away from home in recent times.

The Eagles have suffered just one defeat from their last six matches on their travels which was a 4-3 loss away at Liverpool, but wins at Manchester City, Wolves, Leicester City and Burnley from Christmas to date have helped Crystal Palace avoid any late relegation dramas.

The visitors hold a comfortable eight point margin ahead of third from bottom club, Cardiff City prior to their relatively close visit to Tottenham on Wednesday night, and they bring a 6-2-7 25/24 record into this encounter with them.

Midfielders Milivojevic (10 goals) and Townsend (4 goals) along with Zaha (8 goals) look to be Crystal Palace’s most likely goalscorers for this clash.

Crystal Palace have also scored in each of their last 7 away matches which includes 3 goals at both of the title rivals, Manchester City and Liverpool, so they’ll certainly fancy their chances of hitting the back of the net at a wobbling Tottenham outfit here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Tottenham need a win here while Palace are dangerous on the counter – both teams to score in this one.
