Tottenham is called for after bad start
Many expected more from the third best club from last season. The season opener didn’t go as well as hoped for and so now the Ponchetti-Eleven is called for against Crystal Palace. Their opponent also wasn’t satisfied with their first game. Kick.off is Saturday at 4 PM.
Current form Tottenham Hotspur
When Tottenham plays at their home court at White Hart Lane on Saturday, it should boost the players’ confidence immediately. After all the “Spurs” were a force at home last season. Only a few teams were able to succeed against Kane and Co. at home. Something similar is expected this season. Their start into Premier League didn’t go as expected though. Unlike other top clubs like Manchester or city rival Chelsea Tottenham wasn’t able to win and had to content themselves with a 1:1 draw against Everton. They want to play better in their first home game. It will be crucial to be concentrated in the first couple of minutes. Against the club from Liverpool they already got a goal after five minutes. Problem area especially was Tottenham’s offensive play. Even though they have some great offensive players they were only able to shoot at the goal five times in 90 minutes against Everton. Striker star Harry Kane was often left in midair, one reason why Coach Pochettino brought another attacker after only 56 minutes with Vincent Janssen. But he wasn’t able to turn things around either. Tottenham is still the favorite against Crystal Palace.
Current form Crystal Palace
They have a roster full of prominent players and still weren’t able to succeed in their first game of Premier League. Crystal Palace was the favorite at home against West Bromwich Albion, Coach Alan Pardew’s team wasn’t able to bring that to the court. Instead they lost with 0:1 and currently occupy a relegation place. That doesn’t necessarily mean much now, but with Tottenham the opponent doesn’t get easier, especially since the “Spurs” need to make up for their season opener. Crytsal Palace especially showed weakness in standard situations. For example West Bromwich was able to score out of a free kick. Other than that the team tried hard, played good defense, but wasn’t determined enough in offense. They were only able to shoot at the goal three times. It might very well be possible, that Coach Pardew will start Yohan Cabaye in midfield against Tottenham. The Frenchman could bring more creativity to the game. Against West Bromwich he only came from the bench. On defense they mainly need to take care of players like Kane, who are strong at heading.
Tottenham and White Hart Lane, a love relationship that’s exceptional in Premier League. That’s why we are counting on compensation for the messed up season start by the “Spurs” against Crystal Palace. Our recommendation: Tipp 1.
