History of the Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur fixture

Crystal Palace play host to Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 3 of the 16 games played, and losing 9.

The last time the two teams met at Crystal Palace was back in March 1998, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-3 winners in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Crystal Palace's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 3 goals have been registered in this time, with 5 in the wrong end.

Tottenham's away form is pretty tasty, tasting just one defeat in their last six, and picking up four good wins. Spurs have knocked in 7 goals in these games, and only a measly 1 have been let in at the wrong end.

Crystal Palace are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 18 points from 23 matches. Tottenham's 33 points from 23 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 8th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Little seems to be going right for the Eagles at home recently, and I can see no immediate upturn in fortunes as the Spurs come away with an easy victory. Away win
