Tottenham Hotspur will look to overtake Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League table when they lock horns with Crystal Palace in the final gameweek of the season on Sunday. The Lilywhites are currently seventh in the league, but have an opportunity to finish sixth should they win this weekend while Wolves must at least draw with Chelsea on the same day.
Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Crystal Palace
Serge Aurier has chosen to continue playing for Tottenham Hotspur despite having his brother murdered this month. It has served as a massive boost for Jose Mourinho, who doesn’t have any other viable option in the right-back slot.
The same applies to the left-back slot where Ben Davies is the only option. Fortunately for Mourinho, the Welshman has done really well over the past three matches and is guaranteed to start ahead of Jan Vertonghen.
The central defensive combination of Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez has clicked well for Spurs in recent matches. These two are more than guaranteed to start at the heart of the club’s four-man backline, although Mourinho does have other options including Japhet Tanganga and Juan Foyth.
Finally, Hugo Lloris is expected to retain his place in between the sticks. The Frenchman needs to be at this toes against a sharp Palace attack.
With Tanguy Ndombele unavailable, Moussa Sissoko is expected to retain his place in the side. The Frenchman’s dynamism and work-ethic should be key in dealing with a hard-working Crystal Palace unit. He will form the double pivot alongside Harry Winks this weekend.
The Englishman has the temperament and the technical prowess that offers Tottenham a new edge and more versatility in the middle third of the pitch. But, dealing with Palace’s strong second line of press is always a challenge.
With Sissoko and Winks operating in double-pivot, the onus will be on number ten Giovani Lo Celso to provide the creative inspiration going forward. The Argentine plays a key role in Tottenham’s transition play and it will be interesting to see how he combines with fellow attackers this weekend.
Speaking of fellow attackers, Lucas Moura should retain his place in the side, ahead of Steven Bergwijn while Son Heung-Min is pretty much a guaranteed starter. They will look to provide supply to Harry Kane, who is in a fine run of form, having notably scored a brace in the 3-0 win over Leicester City.
