The tough set of fixtures continue for Crystal Palace as they host Tottenham at Selhurst Park on Saturday evening, kicking off at 5:30pm local time. Crystal Palace haven’t won a competitive match since the middle of September, as they host a side who have the best away record in the table – Spurs.

Home Team: Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace were a side that were in deep trouble this time last season, with them being at the foot of the Premier League table. However, their season from November to May was impeccable, and were able to finish comfortably ahead of the relegation places. Many fans would have expected them to push on, especially considering they were able to keep hold of their best players like Wilfred Zaha. Unfortunately, their season has been underwhelming so far, winning just two matches out of their 11 league matches. Wins on the opening day at Fulham, followed by another away win at Huddersfield are their only two successes. Crystal Palace are yet to win at home all season, picking up just two points from a possible 15 – scoring just two goals in the process. Can they pick up their first win against a team who has the best away record?

Away Team: Tottenham Hotspur

tottenham hotspur betting.footballSpurs were able to bounce back following the setback at home to Manchester City last Monday, with an impressive win at Wolves this past Saturday night. Ideally, Tottenham prefer playing away from home at the moment, given their temporary home is the scene for two crucial defeats – to Liverpool and Manchester City – and the pitch is in poor condition. Everyone associated with the club will hope that their new stadium is completed sooner rather than later as that could have been the difference between them fighting for top four, and them fighting for the league title. Some Tottenham players who have had some injuries are starting to come back into the fold now, as Deli Alli and Christian Eriksen are likely to feature in the match at Selhurst Park.

Head to Head

Tottenham have been the dominant team in this fixture in overall and recent history, winning 28 matches compares to Crystal Palace’s 11 victories. There has been a pattern in the last four games, and that is ‘one-nil to the Tottenham…’. Tottenham have won 1-0 home and away in the last two seasons, and have won 6 Premier League matches in a row against their rivals from the South of London. Crystal Palace last beat Tottenham in the FA Cup in 2016, but haven’t beaten them in the league since January 2015, when they came back from behind to a Harry Kane goal, to win the match 2-1. This was their only success in the last 10 Premier League meetings.

Predictions and Betting Tips

Tottenham are favourites going into the match, as they are at 5/6 to get the win. Crystal Palace are at 3/1 to get a famous victory for them, or a draw is backed at 14/5. The worst home record against the best away record surely would mean an away win right? However, I can see Crystal Palace getting a draw in this match. Just as they did against Arsenal at home in recent weeks, I am going to back them to get a 2-2 draw at 12/1. There hasn’t been a draw between these two sides at Selhurst Park since 1995, but that run has to come to an end at some point. There hasn’t been more than 1.5 goals in the last 5 encounters, and once again I am going to back against history, and suggest there will be goals scored in this match – my final tip is to back there to be more than 3.5 goals at 13/8.
