Tottenham Hotspur should be able to record their third consecutive Premier League win this weekend, as they welcome strugglers Crystal Palace to White Hart Lane. Tim Sherwood's side went down to Arsenal in the FA Cup last time out, but would quickly forget about their third round disappointment if they leapfrog both of the Merseyside clubs into a Champions League spot on Saturday.
Palace have certainly improved since Tony Pulis took over from Ian Holloway, but are currently still inside the bottom three. Having lost eight of their opening ten away games in the Premier League this season, they're going to find life difficult on Saturday.
The Eagles are still without Glenn Murray, Jerome Thomas, Jack Hunt and Adlène Guédioura, while Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul and Paulinho are all definitely sidelined for Spurs. They could be joined in the stands by a string of other doubtfuls, including Lewis Holtby, Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela.
Tottenham Hotspur injuries and suspensions
Out: Jan Vertonghen (ankle), Younes Kaboul (hip), Paulinho (ankle). In doubt: Sandro (calf), Roberto Soldado (calf), Kyle Naughton (hamstring), Erik Lamela (thigh), Gylfi Sigurðsson (calf), Lewis Holtby (knock).
Crystal Palace injuries and suspensions
