Tottenham Hotspur host Crystal Palace in a London derby as part of the Premier League’s schedule for the second day on Sunday afternoon.

Palace’s first victory under Patrick Vieira happened to cause Tottenham’s first Premier League defeat during the current campaign. Three and a half months later, Spurs have parted ways with their coach that day – Nuno Espirito Santo – while Eagles fans have become increasingly in love with their boss.

Here’s everything you need to know about the opposite of the September Palace win.

Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte says Cristian Romero’s injury suffered by international service is “very serious” and rules him out until next year.

Tottenham flew back into the Premier League with an exciting 2-2 draw against title-chasing Liverpool last weekend that disappointed the hosts with just one point.

Antonio Conte was able to hire a number of his first-team players after Tottenham’s extended break from Covid, but will continue to be denied the chance to select midfielder Cristian Romero until the new year.

Palace have only had one Premier League match (so far) postponed via Covid and that was due to an outburst in Watford’s squad, rather than their own.

The Eagles may be able to welcome back their beloved midfielder James McArthur after almost two months on the side. However, Nathan Ferguson’s return is a long way off.

The Palace’s 3-0 triumph after the national team break in September was the club’s biggest over Tottenham since they recorded the same result line in 2005. That victory broke a six-year wait for three Premier League points against Spurs.

The Eagles have not beaten Tottenham in the top flight away since Neil Shipperley scored the only goal at White Hart Lane in 1997 – Palace’s top scorer this season, Connor Gallagher, would not be born in three years.

If the Spurs can replicate the blisters that made Liverpool grateful to come from north London with part of the change, there is no doubt that they will go into Sunday’s capital match as favorites.

Although Palace avoid giving Tottenham the same abyss of space to gallop into as Liverpool’s high line, Vieira’s team will no doubt face a tougher test than the toothless offer Espirito Santo could offer at the start of the season.

Prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Crystal Palace
