Spurs are heading into their match at Selhurst Park with incredible moment. Their unbeaten run has them sitting top of the table, and with a win today they could go five points clear of City before the weekend’s action.
Tottenham will of course be the favorites against Palace, and their task may have just gotten easier.
The Eagles have struggled to find the back of the net this season, with only seven goals across their first nine games.
Now, with two of their most crucial players in the attacking third looking unlikely to feature, the goals will be even tougher to come by.
Making matters worse for them, the Tottenham defense has been revitalized under Ange Postecoglou.
Spurs’ left back Destiny Udogie picked up a small knock halfway through Monday night’s game and is still being assessed, but other than that the team’s backline looks ready to continue their hot streak, coming off back to back clean sheets.
In other news related to injury, Brennan Johnson should be fully fit for the game after making his return to the pitch late last match. With Richarlison’s recent uptick in form to take into consideration, Ange should have plenty of attacking options to pick from for his starting XI.
The task is never easy when facing an away opponent, no matter the opposition’s form. Nevertheless, Ange will surely be looking to walk away with three points from this one.
