Tottenham predicted line up against Crystal Palace

Tottenham travel to selhurst park to face relegation threatened side, Crystal Palace. It will be a great encounter as both London clubs will want to fight for their place in the league. Tottenham fighting for a top four finish while Crystal Palace also fight to stay in the league. So, but sides have something big at stake. This increases the rate at which the sides will want to get maximum points and as such Spurs will have to put out their best team.

Hugo Lloris will continue in goal for Spurs and will help his side stop in-form Crystal Palace attack. The French captain will also be eyeing a clean sheet in this encounter.

Spurs have some injury concerns in this department. Jan Vertonghen is out of this encounter as he picked a knock in training while fellow centre back pairing, Toby Alderweireld has been ruled out with a hamstring complaint. These two misses are big blow for Spurs but they still have to put out a team. Eric Dier and Davison Sanchez will have to pair now at centre back while Serge Aurier and Davies play full back positions.

Since the return of Moussa Dembele from injury, he has always started games. He will be in midfield alongside fellow combative midfielder, Victor Wanyama. Eriksen makes the third man in midfield and will be driving the ball forward most times and play very close to the striker.

Since his return from injury, Eric Lamela have been getting games under his belt and that might continue in this match as Pochettino is expected to start him ahead of Son. Both players can fit in the system but playing Lamela makes Spurs more direct and a good crosser of the ball from the flank is needed. Dele Alli and Harry Kane lead the attack and will be charged with the responsibility of getting the goal for Spurs.

Predicted line up: Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Wanyama, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Lamela, Kane.
