Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Crystal Palace FC



Tottenham Hotspur will head into the November international break after a Saturday London derby at Selhurst Park where they will face Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace. The Eagles will head into this one starving for a victory, but held back by a slew of long term injuries.

Tottenham have had their fair share of injuries too, and they added a new one (Mousa Dembele) to the list today. It’s yet another challenge for the north London side this season in a year that has had plenty of adversity (some due to their own design, but most of it well out of their control) already. Yet here they are, off to as good a start as ever in club history during the Premier League era.


Let’s take a look at who Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could slot in his first team for this one. It’s certainly a very fluid situation and arguments could be made for plenty of different lineup formations.
