Spurs’ resurgence – is it to be prolonged enough for them to stick with Jose Mourinho, or it a flash in the pan much like the time you tried to make your own fry-up on a Saturday morning? After putting together just one win in their previous six games in the league, Tottenham have now landed consecutive wins-to-nil which is very much their early-season template.

And when you consider how spluttering every team around them in the hunt for the top four seems to be, it feels like this is the most exciting top-four hunt we’ve had in years. Admittedly it’s a bit of a comedown from when they won the league by December but time and better teams winning games do tend to catch you out eventually.

But let’s not be rude here – Palace themselves are now unbeaten in three games which matches their season-best in that regard. Spurs need to win this game which greatly concerns me, but I also maintain that Palace haven’t the smallest desire about taking three points here – so it could be more one-sided than we’d have anticipated beforehand.

This really is set up for an embarrassing, grand collapse, isn’t it? Here’s a Bet Builder to soften the blow or reinforce the comedy.

Spurs to Win

Look, no matter how much I’d like to sit here and tell you that they won’t win this game, the form of Gareth Bale gives them yet another difference-maker – more than any other team in the league possess at the moment – and all that does is tell you how big a disappointment this year has been for them.

But as they’re all starting to click into gear, it becomes more and more apparent that they will just win games by default – like they did when they started the season on fire and when Kane and Son seemed to be battling it out with each other for PFA Player of the Year.

Under 2.5 Goals

But this won’t come easy. Not only do Spurs still not operate like a top side in as much as they don’t actually like possessing the football – they’re woefully lacking creation against teams who won’t try and keep the ball against them. Harry Kane made the point that they could barely run against Fulham and it’s only for the fact that Scott Parker made sure they didn’t have to be creative to beat them, that they actually landed the three points.

Having 60% of the ball against Spurs when you, yourself, don’t have the players to score numerous goals is asking for trouble. But what happens now when Palace are happy to watch Ndombele do 180 after 180 and pass the ball left and right without any thought? A snorefest.

Spurs Not to Score in the First Half

It’ll be a snatch and grab. There’s going to be absolutely nothing easy about this game for them and the fact they’ll be allowed keep uncontested possession will be welcome respite for the players as they can feel their way into a game rather than anything else.

Harry Kane to Score First

But ultimately the best striker over the age of 25 in world football will find a way to grab a victory for Spurs have people dissecting how shrewd a game manager Jose Mourinho is again. Jesus wept.
