Festive EPL Face-Off as Spurs Seek to Smash Down Palace!

Crystal Palace make the short trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Boxing Day, for a massive London derby. Which players will get the nod and what will the scores be at the final whistle?

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Crystal Palace to North London on Sunday, seeking to extend their five-match unbeaten streak in the English Premier League (EPL).

While Spurs currently sit seventh in the EPL table, Palace are languishing in 11th place, after just one victory from their last six matches.

With the home side’s Italian manager, Antonio Conte, likely to go back to a 3-4-3 formation, Tanguy Ndombele and Dele Alli could both be forced to step down from team which drew with Liverpool last time out.

Sergio Reguilón should feature ahead of Ryan Sessegnon, while Harry Winks and Lucas Moura also look odds on to be named in the starting XI.

Despite having a good game against West Ham in the EFL Cup, Steven Bergwijn will probably start this encounter from the bench.

Joachim Andersen is poised to return to the Palace backline, after recovering from injury, something which would result in James Tomkins making way.

Palace boss, Patrick Vieira, must decide whether to give a recall to Vicente Guaita between the sticks, or to hand a second successive outing to Jack Butland.

Tottenham should earn all three points in this showdown. Our prediction is 2-0 to the home team, with a goal in each half.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting XI:
Lloris; Sánchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Winks, Højbjerg, Reguilón; Moura, Kane, Son

Crystal Palace possible starting XI:
Butland; Ward, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Hughes, Kouyaté; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha
