Predicted XI: Spurs could make 11 changes for second week running vs Crystal Palace

Tottenham travel to Selhurst Park to take on Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

On Friday, the Spurs boss revealed Toby Alderweireld could miss the trip across the capital after suffering a “small” injury in training.

Lucas Moura will also be assessed prior to the game – the Brazilian could be forced to wait to make his Premier League debut.

With those issues in mind, there’s a good chance Pochettino will opt to make 11 changes to the team that drew 2-2 at Rochdale in the FA Cup last weekend.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the exact line-up that played against Juventus replicated here.

That means Serge Aurier and Ben Davies will return in the full-back spots, while Erik Lamela will start in an attacking midfield trio behind Harry Kane.

However, Pochettino might prefer to pick Heung-Min Son over Lamela in order to provide some width in the final third.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Palace – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments.

Spurs XI vs Palace Away


  1. I think he should play Lucas Moura, and drop Son. Spurs should try and improve their goal average, and with Palace decimated by injuries, they should win at least 4-0.

    • I fully agree son has been scoring and bring alot more with his play than lamela when kane is not on the pitch 9 out of 10 times you would back son to score …. still can understand why lamela is even still at spurs and not sold as yet
