Tottenham vs Crystal Palace Predictions: Tottenham Line-up

Tottenham will look to bounce back from Sunday’s disappointing loss at Liverpool when they host Crystal Palace at the brand new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday.

The game on April 3 will be the first at the club’s new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which was originally meant to be ready to open at the start of this season. Mauricio Pochettino will hope the new stadium brings good luck to his side, who at the moment have lost four out of their last five league games.

Spurs’ opponents, Crystal Palace have been in mixed form of late as Roy Hodgson aims to get to the 40-point mark as quickly as possible.

Team News

Harry Winks, Eric Dier and Serge Aurier are the only players currently on the sidelines for Tottenham.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 3-4-1-2

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris has let Tottenham down a no. of times this season and made another very costly error against Liverpool that granted the hosts’ all three points on Sunday. The Frenchman will look to redeem himself against Palace.

Toby Alderweireld (RCB)

Alderweireld was excellent at Anfield, barring the own goal. He will keep his place in the team on Wednesday.

Toby Alderweireld 1

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

The Colombian has been a bit shaky in recent games and was taken off at Liverpool. He will have to put in a dominant display and help Tottenham get out of the rut.

Jan Vertonghen (LCB)

One of the most consistent defenders in the Premier League, Vertonghen will have to be at his best to stop Wilfried Zaha and co. on Wednesday.

Kieran Trippier (RWB)

Trippier has had an underwhelming campaign despite enjoying an excellent World Cup campaign. He should, however, keep his place in the team due to an injury to Aurier.

Danny Rose (LWB)

Rose was one the few positives in the defeat against Liverpool and is likely to get the nod ahead of Davies at left wing-back.

Moussa Sissoko

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

Just like Rose, Sissoko also had a good game but his inability to find the back of the net in the second half on Sunday cost Tottenham big time.

Victor Wanyama (CM)

Pochettino could resort back to two holding midfielders against Palace and call Wanyama to the starting XI to add more robustness and energy to the engine room.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

Eriksen had a really poor outing against Liverpool at the weekend. The Dane will be desperate to put things right and deliver a top performance on Wednesday.

Heung min Son

Harry Kane (RS)

Kane is Tottenham’s talisman and remains an undoubted starter under Pochettino.

Son Heung-min (LS)

Son has arguably been Tottenham’s best player this season. The South Korean could be handed a start ahead of Lucas Moura, despite the Brazilian netting against Liverpool.
