Premier League 2022-23: Tottenham vs Crystal Palace: Predicted lineup, injury news, head-to-head, telecast
Spurs look to keep Top 4 Race Alive As Eagles play Lilywhites at home
Tottenham Hotspur will host Crystal Palace this Saturday at their North London home, seeking their first Premier League victory in nearly a month. Over the past few weeks, Spurs’ chances of finishing in the top four have diminished as they have suffered three defeats in their last four games, including a 4-3 loss against Liverpool in their most recent outing.
Currently occupying the sixth spot in the standings, Ryan Mason’s team are trailing Manchester United by nine points in fourth place, with the Red Devils holding a two-game advantage over them.
Their opponents on the other hand are in 11th place on the points table with 40 points to their name and will be looking to make a push into the top half of the Premier League standings. Crystal Palace are coming off a huge 4-3 win against West Ham in their previous encounter and will hope to spoil Spurs’ chances of finishing in the top four.

Players to watch
Tottenham Hotspurs: Hugo Lloris
Big news for the Spurs fans as shot-stopper Hugo Lloris is likely to make his return after a short absence following his hip injury against Newcastle United. The player will be hoping to put on a remarkable performance and guide his team towards a top 4 finish.
Crystal Palace: Michael Olise
The Crystal Palace number 7 has produced some stunning performances this season and the player will have to put on his best game if the Eagles must upset Spurs at their home. Olise has been amongst the top suppliers in the league with 9 assists to his name and will be hoping to add more to his tally.
- Tottenham have lost just 1 of their last 15 outings against Crystal Palace, with the defeat coming in an away fixture from last season.
- Crystal Palace have not managed to defeat Spurs in their last 7 away outings, finding the back of the net just once in the 7 games.
- Tottenham have the highest clean sheet percentage against Crystal Palace (52%) out of any team who they have faced at more than 20 occasions.
Injury and team news
Spurs could breathe a huge sigh of relief with an expected return for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who was injured during the first half of the 6-1 drubbing against Newcastle United. Emerson Royal and Rodrigo Bentacur continue to be an absence from the team list with the players yet to recover from their respective injuries. Similarly Ryan Sessegnon, Olivier Skipp, and Yves Bissouma will be unavailable for selection in the game against Palace.
Wilfried Zaha picked up a knock and is a doubt after his goal against West Ham, so we could see Edouard start in his place. Apart from Zaha, Nathaniel Clyne and Nathan Ferguson could also miss out following their respective injuries, the remaining of the squad remain available for selection.

Prediction for Tottenham vs Crystal Palace
Tottenham will be eager to secure Ryan Mason’s inaugural home victory, having suffered a devastating defeat in their previous game, where they went three goals down in the first 15 minutes, only to level the score at 3-3 before ultimately conceding a last-minute goal.
Despite demonstrating impressive resilience during the match, the failure to see games home cost Spurs the win. Nevertheless, their star striker Harry Kane managed to score his 25th league goal of the season, and he could potentially extend his scoring run against a Palace backline that recently let in three goals against West Ham.
Crystal Palace, under Roy Hodgson’s tutelage, have managed to steer clear of the relegation zone in the remaining games after briefly getting pulled into it.
Prediction: Tottenham 2 – 1 Crystal Palace
