Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Crystal Palace (FA Cup 4th Round)


Tottenham transfer rumors

Tottenham Hotspur head to Crystal Palace on Sunday for a FA Cup clash that the bookies have surprisingly regarded to be quite evenly matched. This London derby is not a pick’em per say, but it’s not very far off from that status either. When you look at how Spurs are currently 11 places ahead of Palace in the Premier League table, it’s bit surprising.

Or maybe not when you consider how Tottenham are without their two best players right now, and some other key players on top of that. Mauricio Pochettino, the boss of the north London side, will have to kind of cobble together a sort of patch work first team lineup for the Sunday matinee affair.

  1. They’d better sign a player soon!

  2. Lamela? I hope not.

  3. Run out Daniel as a holding midfielder and if things fall apart in the back pooch can fit in as center back…joe can be on the bench..

    Daniel holds on to the money so well he would do good there

    Pooch is so adept at defending Daniel bullshit he would help clean it up on field

    As for joe..receives a pay for just sitting back and contributing nothing to the game..sounds a good sub.
