Jose Mourinho has confirmed his starting XI for Tottenham’s London derby at Crystal Palace this afternoon.
Spurs can move three points of Liverpool with three points at Selhurst Park, and have made just one change from last Sunday’s north London derby victory – with Tanguy Ndombele back from injury, replacing Giovani Lo Celso in the starting XI.
There’s a familiar back-line – with Sergio Regulion the only survivor from the Europa League win over Royal Antwerp as Serge Aurier, Toby Aldeweireld and Eric Dier are all recalled.
Ndombele gets the nod over Lo Celso midfield, whilst Steven Bergwijn is handed his fourth Premier League start on the bounce.
Heung Min Son and Harry Kane are both back following their brief run-outs in midweek, although there’s no place in the 18-man squad for Gareth Bale or Carlos Vinicius.
However, Dele Alli has been included in the squad, and could make his first league appearance since the 6-1 win at Old Trafford more than two months ago.
