Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Crystal Palace


Tottenham Hotspur, who need a win and maybe help too in order to get into the Europa League competition next season, are facing the right opponent at the right time. Spurs visit Crystal Palace, who they have beaten in 11 of the past 13 league clashes. They haven’t lost at Selhurst Park since January of 2015.

They also come into this one finishing the season on a strong note while the Eagles have lost their last seven. It’s a London derby where all the momentum is with the visitors. Although Spurs will finish outside the top four for the first time in five years, Jose Mourinho knows he can salvage something from his first season in charge at White Hart Lane if they better Wolverhampton Wanderers result this weekend.
