Tottenham’s impressive Premier League form as of late has put them right among the race for the Champions League places once again, and they could find themselves in the top four for a couple of hours on Sunday.

Roy Hodgson’s men stand in their way and the Eagles will be looking to pick up their first win in five Premier League matches. The South Londoners could well start this game in the drop zone so both teams need all three points for different reasons. It will probably be a tight encounter like these games usually are, but the visitors should just come out on top.

The 2015-16 season saw Tottenham do their very best to make something of a title race as they stayed on the tails of Leicester throughout the season. This was thanks to impressive wins on the road and none more so than the one they earned at Selhurst Park. After going behind to a Jan Vertonghen own goal on the half hour, Mauricio Pochettino’s men would draw level thanks to Harry Kane. With the minutes running out it looked as if Crystal Palace would pick up a well-earned point, however there was still time for Dele Alli to score a sensational volley from the edge of the area. This deflated the home side as Nacer Chadli also found the net in injury time to give Spurs all three points thanks to a 3-1 away win.
