Tottenham and Crystal Palace will face each other in a 100% London duel this Saturday afternoon from 15:00, the game being part of the Premier League second round.
Spurs started their new campaign with a draw at Goodison Park, 1-1 vs Everton. They fought for the title last season, but now this is more difficult, as their rivals strengthened their squads. However, Spurs need three points with any price here and they are clearly in pole-position. Tottenham won both league matches with Crystal Palace last season, 1-0 and 3-1.
Crystal Palace lost both EPL duels with their opponents last campaign, but they managed to eliminate Spurs from FA Cup, winning 1-0 at White Hart Lane. The visitors failed to get something in the first round when they faced West Brom, losing 0-1 on the own ground.
