Crystal Palace host Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park as they look to continue their winning streak intact in the league following wins over Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpoolover the past few weeks.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 8pmBST. Live coverage of the game will be on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD.


Palace have a host of injuries in defence as James Tomkins was substituted with a serious ankle injury during their 2-1 win at Liverpool. Fellow centre-back Scott Dann is yet to recover from a knee ligament problem and he has been out of action for the past three weeks. However, on-loan defender Mamadou Sakho is available after missing the game against the Reds.

Manager Sam Allardyce has turned their season around and is looking for a late surge in the top half of the table. They are currently on 38 points and occupy the 12th position in the league and are unbeaten in their last four games at home, having lost only one of their last eight games. A win here will be their third consecutive win in a London derby, which would be their first in history.

Tottenham do not have any injuries to worry about and have Danny Rose back in full training after the right-back missed three months with ligament damage. Michel Vorm is also recovering from a knee injury and should be fit before the end of the season. Manager Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to recover from their 4-2 defeat to Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and close the gap on them, who won against Southampton on Tuesday (25 April).

Spurs are on a brilliant run at the moment and have won seven league games on the trot, scoring 22 goals and also keeping four clean sheets in the process. A win here will close the gap down to a mere four points with the Blues and keep them in the hunt for their first title in over 50 years.

What managers say

Sam Allardyce: "We needed that (run) to get ourselves out of trouble, but we're still not mathematically out of trouble. It shows great fight and desire from the players to get ourselves out of that predicament. They've grasped it in the end superbly well and done an outstanding job. It has to be one of the best run of results in the long career I've had as a manager in the Premier League."

Mauricio Pochettino: We start to compete in the last two seasons. Last season we finished third, the best place in the Premier League for Tottenham, now we are second and fighting with the big sides with a completely different project. The mentality is fantastic - to win always. But when you compete with Chelsea, Man United, Man City, Liverpool - come on. The players deserve full credit and (you should) remove that idea because it's not true. They are winners. Another thing is to win titles, but they are winners." (via BBC)
