After a poor run of five defeats from six outings in all competitions for Spurs when including extra time between late January and mid-February, they’ve since won four of five.
That upturn in form has coincided with the return of Harry Kane from injury, who missed their defeats against Brighton and Chelsea, but they can perhaps count themselves lucky to come away with all three points during the week at Fulham.
They face a Palace side that look incapable of scoring on a consistent basis without their talisman Wilfred Zaha.
It has become common knowledge the extent to which they miss him now, as they’ve gone W3-D3-L19 from their last 25 without him in the starting line-up, failing to score in 19 and seeing fewer than three goals in 16.
He does have a low chance of returning for this encounter though, but even with him, they haven’t exactly been that prolific and at first glance this game has got the makings of a low scoring one.
Under 2.5 Goals
The ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ is the shorter of the two goal to our surprise, as although they put four goals past Burnley in their last outing here, this Eagles outfit know a thing or two about playing the better sides away from Selhurst Park.
Dating back to the end of the 2018/19 campaign, the visitors have earned 12 of their total 16 points against the traditional ‘Big Six’ on the road, and so you’d imagine them to put up a fair fight.
It should be noted though, they have netted just one goal from their last six outings this term against those top sides after a 0-0 draw with Man Utd during the week.
Spurs To Win To Nil
Eight of the Lilywhites’ 13 matches at their new stadium this term have seen fewer than three goals. Jose Mourinho is known for his defensive prowess, but they’ll be up against another master of that art in Palace, and they might have to go searching for a goal.
Still, nine of their last 12 clashes at all venues against the bottom half of the table have seen them have a maximum of two goals, winning to nil in six of their eight such victories, and if their recent 1-0 victory over Fulham is anything to go by, we could be in for another tight encounter.
It could be worth considering the home win to nil too. Palace have gone W3-D10-L19 against last season’s top-half finishers and the current top-half this term, failing to score in 15 of those defeats.
In fact, other than two fortunate goals against Brighton last Monday, they’ve failed to score in all their last four outings dating back to early February.
You only have to look at their previous clashes to see a trend of where this game might go. All but one of their nine meetings since the start of the 2016/17 season have seen fewer than three goals, as Spurs remain unbeaten over that period and won to nil in seven.
