2 Key Players Set To Return For Spurs vs Palace
By Harry Hotspur -

Tottenham faces another examination on Sunday evening as Crystal Palace arrives in Haringey, looking to see what they might achieve against a ‘top-flight side’. According to Pa Sport’s Jonathan Veal, our squad will be boosted by one.

Spurs will be pleased to see Serge Aurier return. Whilst the Ivorian does have a monumental blunder in him, on balance he’s an infinitely more interesting proposition than Matt Doherty is ever likely to be.

As for Crystal Palace, Roy Hodgson will be pleased to welcome back Wilfried Zaha after a month tending to a hamstring injury whom they may need, as Spurs are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League encounters with Palace. Spurs have kept a remarkable 11 clean sheets in the last 15 times these two have met in the division.

A rather unsettling fact for Palace fans is that they find themselves in the midst of a goal drought – since thumping West Brom 5-1 back in December – Hodgson’s boys have only scored 5 times. Paging Dr. Tottenham?

This one should be one for our flat track bullies. CP were delighted with their nil nil against Man U and listening to Cahill and Hodgson after the game you’d swear they were after drawing with Bayern Munich. If Spurs are in the zone we should win comfortably

I feel a lot more confident with the dynamic duo of Reg and Serge returning for this game. Palace are a hugely boring outfit, though Zaha makes them a different proposition. Deal with him and we should be winning comfortably.

Zaha is talented and shows that sporadically but is also a moany ‘all about me’ indulged drama queen for Palace in most games – find it tiring to watch the bloke doing his thing, so as a result I do like to see Palace get beat each week for that reason alone.

There was a time I liked the idea of Zaha at spurs but no thank you now.

Palace bored the pants off a lackluster Man Utd in the week, so expect more of the same. Our attackers have to be on point. Would be nice if our defenders would pass to a team mate and not the opposition.

OT Do watch Hojberg in his positioning when we have the ball. He makes NO attempt to lose his marker and provide a central channel for the ball which mans that it yoyos back and forth between CDs and FBs until an opposing player dies of boredom then we pass it down that wing. I have noticed this on multiple occasions and it may even be intended but if so it is wrong, that is, unless Jose has no faith in him as playmaker Curious.
