Tottenham predicted the line-up against Crystal Palace

4

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Crystal Palace to their part of north London for a second day match.

Antonio Conte is still undefeated in the Premier League at the helm of Spurs and collects 11 points from 15 possible on his first five trips, which have been punctured heavily by snow and Covid-19.

Here is the XI that the Italian tactician can turn to to keep his spotless start on life in the N17.

Hugo Lloris (GK) – He may have scored three goals in his last game against the Eagles (a third of his total concessions against Tottenham’s future opponents) but Lloris has kept more zero against Palace than any other club in his career (nine).

Davinson Sanchez (CB) – The main beneficiary of Cristian Romero’s long-term injury absence does not have much time to prove that he is worth a starting place before his South Americans return.

Eric Dier (CB) – Backed by Conte to become “one of the best players in the world” in his position, Dier has enjoyed – especially when he is on the ball himself – as the defensive anchor in Tottenham’s back-three.

Ben Davies (CB) – One of three outfielders involved in every Premier League minute under Conte.

Emerson Royal (RWB) – With a bit of rare respite for the victory in the Carabao Cup in the middle of the week over West Ham, the Brazilian national team player may very well slip back into the league before Matt Doherty again.

Harry Winks (CM) – As impressive as his display against Liverpool may have been, Winks must quickly replicate the cut and the flawless decisions to maintain Conte’s high standards.

Pierre Højbjerg (CM) – A row of 52 consecutive Premier League starts was broken in Tottenham’s latest top match – although there is hardly enough reason to suggest a second straight spectator card for Hojbjerg.

Dele Alli (CM) – Enjoyed his best performance in a time against Liverpool by fulfilling the groundbreaking midfield blasts that Arturo Vidal and Nicolo Barella have previously been entrusted with in the Conte line-up.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) – After being relieved in the crease from an ankle injury before Tottenham’s Covid break, Ryan Sessegnon’s fitness concerns have cemented a starting berth that Reguilon would always take back.

Son Heung-min (ST) – Only two Premier League players have directly contributed a larger share of their team’s goals this season than Son (scored or assisted half of Tottenham’s 18 league goals).

Harry Kane (ST) – Tottenham’s ten have had their only two goals of the season limited to the second best team in the division (Liverpool) and the second worst (Newcastle) – Palace fall in the middle of these extremes in eleventh place.
