LONDON DERBY TO ROUND OFF THE WEEKEND
Good evening and a very warm welcome to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Spurs welcome Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s men are enjoying a mini revival after three wins on the bounce – with three clean sheets in the process.
They rode their luck to a certain extent on Thursday night as they beat Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage.
Josh Maja looked to have drawn Scott Parker’s side level on the hour-mark before VAR ruled that goal out for an accidental handball in the build-up.
The following day, a change was announced to the handball rule for next season.
A late push for the top four is very much alive for Spurs as they sit five points behind Chelsea in 4th win a game in hand.
Liverpool’s latest shocker at home – losing 1-0 to Fulham – earlier today comes as another boost for the North Londoners ahead of this.
That win just keeps Crystal Palace in the relegation picture though they will be looking up instead of behind them, you’d think.
Two 0-0’s back to back against Fulham and the latest against Manchester United backed up a 2-1 win at rivals Brighton.
Will Jose have one eye on the Europa League in midweek? We’ll find out shortly with his team selection.
Stick with us as we bring all the build-up ahead of kick-off from 7:15pm!
