Spurs had to come from behind to draw with Brentford and then lost at home to Aston Villa. It has been an incredibly frustrating resumption for the north London club. Wednesday does not get any easier, with a trip across the capital to face a Crystal Palace team which has won three of its last five including a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth at the weekend.
Antonio Conte has some tricky selection decisions. Dejan Kulusevski is once again a doubt. Richarlison, Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Moura and Yves Bissouma are all unavailable.
Double Chance: Crystal Palace Or Draw
Consistency has been a problem for Crystal Palace, but they have won three of their last four at home in the league. Tottenham’s away record leaves a lot to be desired, and they have leaked goals on the road, with two or more conceded in four of their last five.
Palace have drawn with Newcastle and Liverpool this season. Spurs have won just three of their last 10 Premier League matches, making 4/5 a good price on the hosts to avoid defeat here.
Total Crystal Palace Goals: Over 1.5
In that 10-match run with just three victories, Spurs have conceded over 1.5 goals on eight occasions. Palace haven’t exactly been prolific in the final third, scoring one or no goals in eight of their last 13 matches.
The Eagles, however, are a more talented attacking team than their goal tallies suggest. Chance conversion and the final ball can be a problem, but they certainly have the ability to trouble a shaky Tottenham defence.
Most Corners: Tottenham
There might be scepticism about Spurs’ performance levels, but it still makes sense to back them to have more corners than Palace here.
The visitors average six corners in their favour per match.
Palace sit at 3.8, which is joint-third lowest in the Premier League. On average, Spurs win more than they concede, while the opposite is true for Palace.
