Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur

Selhurst Park will play host this Sunday as Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur go head-to-head in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup. Palace tumbled out of the FA Cup in the third round last season when they narrowly lost out to Brighton, while Tottenham made it through to the Semi-Finals where they would be knocked out by Manchester United. Tottenham are clear favourites for this cup clash, but with them suffering from multiple injuries and missing players they are a much weaker side which should make this an interesting game and one you won’t want to miss.

Crystal Palace have been terribly inconsistent this season with their performances which have, in turn, held them back. After 23 games they sit in 14th with 22 points which places them just three points clear of the relegation zone. Palace faced Liverpool in their previous match and came close to securing a point against the league leaders when the match finished 4-3. This defeat marked their 13th loss of the season. The Eagles have already faced their opponents this season and were unlucky to lose 1-0 and will be hoping for more success this time around. Palace can be backed with SkyBet for a price of 7/4.

If Palace can produce a similar performance against Tottenham that they did against Liverpool, then they are in with a great chance of securing a win and progressing onto the fifth round. Andros Townsend bagged his eighth goal of the season against Liverpool which places him as Palace’s joint top goalscorer alongside Luka Milivojevic. Bet365 have Townsend to score anytime priced at 11/4, while Milivojevic sits at 7/2. Palace’s last two games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and Betway have there to be over 2.5 goals priced at 19/20 for this fixture.

Tottenham Hotspur remains up in third place in the Premier League but Pochettino may have to prepare to drop places with him missing multiple key players. Both Harry Kane and Dele Alli are out injured and are expected to return during March and they are also without Son Heung-Min who has joined his nation in the Asian Cup. Spurs scraped through their first game against Fulham with their missing players and clinched the three points in the dying minutes thanks to Harry Winks. The North London side are priced at 7/5 with Bet365 to win.

Tottenham passed their first challenge with their weakened side, but their performance was from their usual that we have seen this season. Kane and Son have been directly involved in 45 goals between them this season showing there importance to their side’s success this season. Lucas Moura is the next highest scoring player in the side with eight goals this season and is priced at 11/5, with Bet365 to score anytime.
