Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace will play the fifth match of the Premier League season on Saturday, 14th September at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace meet this weekend at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the fifth match of the Premier League season. Crystal Palace have had a better start to the season, but this match is likely to pose a real challenge for them.
Tottenham Hotspur drew their last match, the North London derby with Arsenal 2 – 2 and before that they lost 0 – 1 to Newcastle United. However, they held Manchester City to a 2 – 2 draw at the Etihad and before that defeated Aston Villa 3 – 1. Crystal Palace drew with Everton at the start of the season and then lost to Sheffield United. However, they defeated Manchester United 1 – 2 at Old Trafford and then won against Aston Villa 1 – 0 in their last game.
The teams have played many times in recent years, most recently Spurs defeated Palace 2 – 0 in April this year but before that, in January, Palace overcame Tottenham 2 – 0 in the FA Cup. However, Spurs won the five previous games and Palace’s last win over them was back in February 2016. With Spurs playing at home, this match could prove tricky for Palace.
