EPL: Tottenham v Crystal Palace

Tottenham and Crystal Palace lock horns today

Take note that Tottenham should be bitterly disappointed to suffer defeat on Sunday

And now given they had been 3-0 down inside 15 minutes

Then yet thought they had snatched a point with Richarlison’s 93rd-minute equaliser.

However, Diogo Jota went straight up the other end to put Liverpool back in front

For sure, Spurs will be looking to take all three points today

We know that both Tottenham and Crystal Palace were involved in seven-goal thrillers in their last Premier League match and the London rivals should serve up plenty more entertainment.

And while Spurs were edged out 4-3 in the final moments against Liverpool at Anfield, Palace were celebrating success by the same scoreline in a classic with West Ham at Selhurst Park.

That topsy-turvy encounter came on the back of another lively clash at home to Manchester United, when they trailed 2-0 before second-half goals from Pedro Porro and Heung-Min Son salvaged a draw.

Slow starts are becoming a common theme for Tottenham, who were also 5-0 down in only 19 minutes against Newcastle at St. James’ Park prior to that.

Spurs went on to lose that game 6-1, which came on the back of a 3-2 defeat at home to Bournemouth.

Now acting head coach Cristian Stellini was sacked on the back of the hiding from Newcastle and was replaced by Ryan Mason, who overseen their draw with Manchester United and high-scoring defeat to Liverpool.

Of course those performances under Mason were a slight improvement on those before them but defensive deficiencies remain, something Roy Hodgson’s Palace can exploit with their pace on the break
