Crystal Palace will be facing Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League. Their upcoming fixture is scheduled to be held on Boxing Day. Due to the ongoing covid scare, the premier league officials have decided to speed things up. Thus, Palace v Spurs will be the second-leg encounter.
The Spurs started the season with great enthusiasm. They performed brilliantly and garnered a number of wins. However, the honeymoon was soon over for the team. They failed to keep up with the consistency. As a result, the Spurs kept slumping down the league table.
Tottenham restored some respect in their last match against Liverpool. They managed to see off the resilient men of Jurgen Klopp for a mere 1-1 draw. However, that does not end their season of woes. A lot of expectations are at stake for Antonio Conte’s side. The likes of Harry Kane and Song are expected to deliver.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, would be a happier side. They have demolished the Spurs in their earlier encounter this year. Palace displayed a great brand of football that night. They found the net thrice in a span of fifteen minutes. Thus, Palace is very much confident of replicating their heroics once again. Let us learn more about the upcoming game in detail below.
Crystal Palace Hopes For A Miracle
Crystal Palace has had a quiet season so far. They are sitting pretty at the middle of the table. Palace has often played well but could not win. The players and the manager seem frustrated with the issue. They are looking to break the shackles against Tottenham.
However, Tottenham has begun to find its form lately. They were triumphant against West Ham in the Carabao Cup. Conte’s men are eager for a victory. It remains to be seen how Crystal Palace will face the Tottenham storm.
