April 01, 2019
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - Premier League
Tottenham welcome Crystal Palace in Premier League midweek action, as the first visitors to their new home - the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
These two sides have beaten each other once already this season, with Palace winning 2-0 at home in the FA Cup and Spurs winning 1-0 in league action at Selhurst Park.
Spurs are unbeaten at home in their last seven Premier League meetings with The Eagles.
Tottenham have no new injury worries following their weekend defeat at Liverpool, with midfield pair Eric Dier and Harry Winks both still out of action for Mauricio Pochettino's side.
Palace also came through their weekend fixture at home to Huddersfield unscathed, with Max Meyer expected to shake off a minor knock to play. Defender Mamadou Sakho remains sidelined for Roy Hodgson's side, and he could miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Tottenham v Crystal Palace Preview and Predictions
Pochettino will be frustrated at his side conceding a last minute winner away at Liverpool over the weekend, and he will be demanding a big performance as they open their new stadium. With their top four hopes now in doubt, as Arsenal and Manchester United have now closed the gap, the Argentinian boss needs a win ahead of a crucial month of games.
Palace confirmed Huddersfield's long awaited relegation last weekend with a 2-0 home win, although the South Londoners should have won by a far bigger margin. Palace are likely to have done enough to have secured their own Premier League survival however Spurs have more to play for in this midweek clash.
Tottenham need all three points, and they are at 4/9 to pick up a valuable victory in their brand new ground on Wednesday night against their London rivals. Spurs will want to give their fans something to cheer in their new surroundings and they will want to make a statement to their top four rivals - and they are at 13/10 to score in both halves.
Tottenham to win 2-0 at 7/1
Spurs simply need to win this game to prevent losing any further ground to arch rivals Arsenal and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United, and Pochettino will have them ready to do just that. With a Champions League quarter final against Manchester City coming up, they need to have a strong domestic platform in place.
Harry Kane to score anytime at 8/13
The England captain has three goals in his lat four appearances for Pochettino's side and he will be looking to build on that in the coming weeks. He is in line to break the 20 Premier League goal mark for the fifth season in a row, with 17 so far in 2018-19.
