Crystal Palace – Tottenham (Betting tips)
A duel involving London clubs opens Sunday’s schedule, February 25, of the twenty-eighth round of the English Premier League in its 2017/2018 season. At Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace hosts Tottenham. The kickoff is scheduled for 9am (Brasília time).
The recent performance of Crystal Palace
As the previous weekend was dedicated to the games of the Glass of England, Crystal Palace has not been acting for two weeks. His last match took place on February 10. On the twenty-seventh day of the Premier League, it took 3 to 1 of Everton in Liverpool.
It follows, in this way, near the relegation zone. He has 27 points (six wins, nine draws and 12 losses). It started the twenty-eighth round with just one point more than Southampton, eighteenth and first place in the sticking region. Bad situation, of course, but much better than the one in which the team was at the beginning of the tournament, when it was plunged in the flashlight suffering defeats in a row and unable to score a goal.
Responsible for modifying this scenario, coach Roy Hodgson now has a different challenge. Deal with the many concussion problems in a not too numerous cast. The goalkeeper, Julian Speroni (11 performances in the 2017/2018 season of the English Championship) is handed over to the care of the medical department and physiology department; defenders Scott Dann (17 games, one goal), Martin Kelly (11 games, no goal) and Mamadou Sakho (11 games, one goal); Ruben Loftus-Cheek (16 games, one goal), Jason Puncheon (ten games, no goal) and Bakary Sako (16 games, three goals); and attackers Jeffery Schlupp (19 games, no goal) and Wilfred Zaha (20 games, four goals).
The current form of Tottenham
The Tottenham stage is far superior. The team did not lose 14 matches, although the series is not the most impressive. There were eight wins and six draws. Equality in the most recent was disappointing. By the last 16 of the England Cup, the Londoners did not go from 2 to 2 with Rochdale, of the Fourth Division. Now you have to put one more game on your tight schedule. The replay will be held on February 28.
That means the team will not have much time to train in the next two weeks, when it will make five matches. For Sunday’s duel, however, that should not be a big problem, as coach Mauricio Pochettino has mounted a mixed team to face Rochdale.
So you can put the best you have in your hands to try and get the team to the qualifying zone for the English Champions League. With 52 points (15 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses), Tottenham occupy fifth place in the Premier League. The berth in the main continental tournament is awarded to the top four. This block is closed by Chelsea, with one more point.
The big doubt at Tottenham for this Sunday’s duel is precisely in relation to his most important player. Striker Harry Kane (26 matches in the 2017/2018 English Championship, 23 goals) played just 15 minutes against Rochdale, scored a penalty in the penalty shootout but injured his ankle. The tendency, however, is to be released to face the Crystal Palace.
