    Spurs to Continue Winning Run in London Derby

    The final match to be played on Sunday the 7th of February in the English Premier League is between Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    The hosts begin the weekend in 8th place on 42 points while the visitors are in 13th place on 34 points.

    Spurs come into the game having recorded a narrow 1-0 victory at Fulham on Thursday night. Fulham had a goal controversially disallowed by VAR for handball and Spurs can feel somewhat fortunate they came away with maximum points.

    However, that result means Spurs have won each of their last 3 matches in all competitions, with additional victories coming at home against Burnley in the Premier League and Wolfsberger AC in the Europa League.

    Trends show Spurs have been difficult to beat at home and they are unbeaten in 22 of their 26 most recent home matches in all competitions. However, they have picked up only 2 victories from their 5 most recent home league games.

    Spurs have won by 2 or more goals in their last 3 home matches in all competitions plus they have kept a clean sheet in each of those 3 games.

    That includes each of their last two home matches in the Premier League, a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion and a comfortable 4-0 victory over Burnley.

    Crystal Palace travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium having picked up a point in a 0-0 draw at home with Manchester United on Wednesday night. It was a disappointing game with very few goal scoring chances but Crystal Palace will feel as though they should have nicked it at the end with a great chance to score the winning goal.

    Nonetheless, it was a decent point for Crystal Palace and means they come into this match on a 3 game unbeaten run in the Premier League. They defeated Brighton and Hove Albion 2-1 away from home followed by a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park with Fulham.

    Away form in the league shows Crystal Palace struggle to win matches. They have managed to win only 3 of their last 10 away Premier League games. Scoring goals has become a problem on the road and Crystal Palace have failed to score in 4 of their last 6 away league fixtures.

    They have also failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 4 away Premier League matches.

    Team news and Tottenham Hotspur have just the one injury concern, with Giovani Lo Celso struggling with a hamstring injury. Jose Mourinho could go with the same starting XI from midweek, meaning another start for Dele Alli.

    Crystal Palace will be without James McCarthy, James McArthur, James Tomkins, Mamadou Sakho, and Nathan Ferguson due to injury. Tyrick Mitchell, Nathaniel Clyne, and Wilfried Zaha are doubtful.

    This match is the perfect opportunity for Spurs to put the pressure on the teams above them in the table. We expect to see the hosts record a comfortable victory, scoring a couple of goals and keeping a clean sheet in the process.
