England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 7 March 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Stadium, London
Three loses in the last five league matches and a massive 4-0 win against Burnley in their last match followed by a scrappy 0-1 win away at Fulham, tells the tale of Tottenham’s season so far as their inconsistency has seen them drop altogether from the Champions League places in the league. They will be going into this game knowing that a win is crucial to propel them back into contention for the top four spot.
Crystal Palace currently occupy the 13th spot on the league table, they come into this fixture on the back of a three game unbeaten run in the league after playing a 0-0 draw with second placed Manchester United in their last match.
Spurs have been unbeaten by Crystal Palace in their last four meetings with the reverse fixture for this game ending in a 1-1 draw. However, with the Spurs team putting their injury worries behind them and a surge in form for Dele Alli and Gareth Bale, Mourinho now has more arsenals at his disposal to grind out required results. While Crystal Palace is goal shy in the league having scored just 29 goals and conceded 43, Tottenham will be looking to increase their goal tally and remain tight at the back having scored 42 goals and 27 conceded.
