Tottenham Hotspur will face off against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening hoping to build on their UEFA Champions League win over PSV Eindhoven. However, it won’t be an easy task for Spurs to come away with maximum points from Selhurst Park as the Eagles are quite strong and hard to beat in front of their home supporters.
Mauricio Pochettino is expected to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might make a few changes to his side for this vital league encounter.
4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace
Hugo Lloris will resume his goalkeeping duties for Spurs versus the Eagles on Saturday despite making some high-profile mistakes in recent weeks. The centre-back duo of Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez will line up at the heart of the Tottenham defence in the absence of Jan Vertonghen who is still sidelined due to an injury.
Kieran Trippier was rested in midweek so he will start at right-back while Ben Davies would look to put in a tireless shift on the left side of Pochettino’s backline. Danny Rose is still out with an injury which ensures Davies’ place in the Spurs first-team for now.
The Tottenham defenders have conceded three goals in their past two league outings so they would need to improve on that record and keep things stable at the back to stop the Palace attackers from scoring this weekend.
The Spurs midfield might be comprised of Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks who have both been impressive in recent outings. Eric Dier is currently out of form so he might be a part of the Tottenham bench.
The talented trio of Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, and Lucas Moura could be unleashed in the opposition half as they look to pose a threat for the Palace defenders. Heung-min Son could be a potent weapon for the North Londoners from the bench.
Harry Kane will lead the lines for Spurs once again after scoring against PSV Eindhoven in midweek. The English centre-forward is currently in a rich vein of form so we can expect him to find the back of the net this weekend.
