After back to back wins following the draw in Austria, Tottenham are back in Premier League action sitting pretty at the top of the table and having topped their group in the Europa league following the 2-0 win over Royal Antwerp. More good news yesterday as Jose was named manager of the month for November after remaining unbeaten in the league throughout the month with 3 wins and a draw scoring 5 and conceding only 1 with 3 clean sheets, 2 of them notably coming in the win over Man City and the draw against Chelsea. With no Europa league games until 2021, the busy festive period has certainly started with some tough fixtures with the toughest being against current champions Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday. But, make no mistake, the game at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace will be tough. Palace are coming off a 5-1 demolition of West Brom with Wilfred Zaha in great form this season having scored 7 goals in 9 games. This London Derby away at Selhurst Park has always seemed to be a tough fixture for Tottenham with no wins in their last 2 visits; a draw on the last day of last season and a 2-0 Crystal Palace win in the FA cup in January 2019. Tottenham come into this game not having lost in the league since the opening day and our last loss coming against Royal Antwerp. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have won 2 of their last 5 games.
