Tottenham vs Crystal Palace: Preview

Tottenham form analysis

The Lilywhites have found mixed results and struggled for consistency in recent Premier League matches. After a thrilling 2-2 draw away to Manchester United on January 14th, Tottenham edged past Brentford 3-2 in an exciting back-and-forth game on February 1st. They followed up with a 2-2 draw at Everton on the 3rd, twice taking the lead through the brilliance of Richarlison but getting pegged back both times, including in the 90th minute. At home against Brighton on the 10th, it was another come-from-behind 2-1 win thanks to second half goals from P. Sarr and B. Johnson after conceding a controversial first half penalty.

However, their inconsistencies returned in a 1-2 loss to Wolves on February 17th, requiring a second half equalizer from D. Kulusevski just to gain a temporary point before allowing the winner late. Overall, Tottenham have the attacking threat and spirit to trouble any opponent as evidenced by their fightbacks. But defensive issues and concentration drops have cost them leads and points. Greater organization and discipline at the back would best position them to close out wins when scoring first instead of draws.

Crystal Palace form analysis

It has been an up and down stretch recently for Crystal Palace in Premier League play. After an exciting 3-2 win over Sheffield United on January 31st, Palace was brought back down to earth in a 1-4 thrashing away to Brighton on February 3rd. They responded well to earn a statement result in their next match, beating Chelsea 1-3 on February 13th behind goals from J. Lerma and a brace from C. Gallagher before a late consolation. However, Palace failed to build momentum from that performance, needing a late equalizer from A. Onana to draw Everton 1-1 at home a week later on the 20th after a defensive lapse.

Most recently finding strong form, Palace won comfortably 3-0 over Burnley on February 24th with a balanced scoring effort from C. Richards, J. Ayew and a J. Mateta penalty. Overall, Palace has proven dangerous on their day but also prone to concentration drops, particularly on defense. Maintaining maximum focus and organization for 90 minutes will be crucial towards translating their evident talent into more consistent results week to week. Their ceiling is among the highest in the Premier League when firing.
