Tottenham V Crystal Palace Preview

What Price Success? The Bar has just been set higher, again!

If newspaper reports are to be believed Danny Levy has his work cut out now to keep his Manager and his best players, such is the price we have to pay for beating Real Madrid.

If we keep performing like this, and getting these kind of results, Contracts will have to be visited again before next summer. Whilst we sit back and listen to all the "hype" now being spoken about our club, our players and our Manager, we have a job to do on Sunday and that is to get 3 more points.

We can`t afford to let City get too far ahead.

We fell too far behind once before letting both Leicester and Chelsea get too far ahead and then playing catch up for half the season.

City are bossing it and for most are odds on favorites [to win the title] which leaves everyone else hoping they will hit a sticky patch that might trip them up on their seemingly inexorable march toward the Premiership title.

The goal difference between us and City is 17 and the points difference is already 9.

If Poch honestly believes we have a chance in the Premiership Title Race, we have to take all 3 points from the clubs below us and we have to win our away games; or at least get a result when we go to the likes of the Library [Emirates] - Stamford Bridge - The Etihad and Anfield.

The Real Madrid results should have given us the confidence that we have the ability to beat our peers in the Premier League at Wembley and that in the worst case we are capable of drawing on their home turf.

That is where the bar is now, anything less this season and we will be seen to being back to "Spursy"!

The most annoying thing about the Real result was the fact that, having seen how Sanchez played against Real, we should have and could have avoided defeat at United if we had played Sanchez in that game.

Sanchez is going to play an even more vital role for us whilst Toby is out.

Dier will end up in a back three for a while whilst we assume Winks will take the lion`s share of Defensive Mid over Moussa.

Moussa looks like he is going to be increasingly used as an impact player rather than a starter, however, of course Winks may be rested for this one and Moussa chosen instead, but I'd be surprised if Poch started rotating Winks so soon in the season; such are the permutations at Poch`s disposal nowadays.

Hopefully, Poch won`t play Kane up to the 88th minute and will give Llorente a chance to get some valuable match time that amount to more than just a few token minutes, he strikes me as still being short of fitness and needs to start upping his game to show that he could be an adequate Kane replacement for a few games if need be.

Davies may be rested giving Danny Rose a rare recent start and although Trippier played a blinder against Real he will probably be rotated with Aurier. (I have to say I am still waiting to see Aurier turn on the after burners and beat his opposition to the bye line and get in some decent crosses).

Son should get the nod over Sissoko so with Rose, Son and Aurier we should have some pace to get in, and behind the flakey Palace defence.

Whether the International break will be enough for Lloris and Davies we will see; it`s not looking good for Toby so we had better hope we don`t pick up anymore niggles before the Arsenal game on the 18th November. Our injury/niggle list is now giving genuine cause for concern.

Palace have a total of four points from 10 games which, along with their goal difference of minus 17, leaving Roy Hodgson's men with the sixth-worst record ever seen at this stage of a Premier League season.

You would have thought that their early season form marks Palace out as a basket-case and certainties for a season-long relegation battle; but before you do; Remember the 14th October: Palace 2 Chelsea 1.

That result alone should be enough to concentrate the minds in the Spurs dressing room, Roy has changed the way they play and most of all instilled in them a never say die attitude as they showed against West Ham, scoring in the dying seconds to grab a well deserved draw.

Zaha will have acres more space to play in than he does at Selhurst Park and he will want to turn it on. Zaha may want to raise his stock even higher in time for the January Transfer Window, assuming that is, if he is looking for a move then. One sideshow to all this is that there are some who seem to believe that Zaha to Spurs is all but a done deal!

A certain Andros Townsend will also be trying to make a statement or two so Vorm had better be prepared for some long-range shots coming his way. If Rose starts, he will know exactly how to handle him.

Other than these two speed merchants Palace are playing like a team that has just arrived from the Championship rather than a Premiership side and what we don`t want is to get in front and then take our foot off the pedal as we did against West Ham…. twice!

Palace look set to have Mamadou Sakho and James McArthur back on Sunday, while Patrick Van Aanholt faces a late fitness test. Benteke, Chung-Yong Lee and Sullay Kaikai are out injured.

I fully expect the majority of the game to be spent in their half moving the ball around whilst we look for cracks in their defence to get Harry in on goal.

We really should be capable of some goals here and should have no need to give the ever-increasing Wembley home crowd, [ticket sales have gone up since Wednesday`s result] one of those "the morning after the night before games"!

I'm going 3 or 4-1; what's your score?

Obviously Palace will pack defence and midfield and play balls over the top and wide for the pace of Zaha and Townsend to exploit and create 2 on 1 situations especially if our wing backs are up field. As Oyveh says they will not give up so if we do get ahead we cannot afford to try to “manage” the game rather than pressing for more goals. Need to be as focused as we were on Wednesday.

Can't see anything but a Spurs win tbh. Football is a funny old game though. As has been said, CP will park the bus and look to hit us on the counter with pace out-wide. They don't stand a chance if they try to take the game to us. I'm going for a 3-1 win. Kane to get a brace and Alli to score a cracker!

Dear Roy Hodgson's old man was a London bus driver and local to Crystal Palace (Croydon). So, parking buses around Selhurst Park is in Roy's blood.

I believe that, if we can get past their defence often enough and win a good few corners in the process we should beat them convincingly. Strange tactic I know, going for a high corner count. But, if we can get Harry to take them all, we'll be more than alright and should, (with a little luck) beat these South London lightweights, senseless.

It's one of those games isn't it! The rest of the top 5 playing each other, with at least 2 of the 4 dropping points, while we have what on paper looks like an easy opponent with 3 points gauranteed. These are the sort of games where we have failed to take advantage in previous seasons so I'm hoping to see a more ruthless Spurs side tomorrow reflecting the confidence they must have gained from the Liverpool and RM games.

Looking forward to seeing our intensity level in the first 15 minutes of tomorrow’s game. I hope it’s very high and not laissez faire. I’m kind of concerned about Dembele’s new Viking style over his last 2 appearances. Could have had a very unnecessary red against RM. he seems to be losing his temper very quickly and playing very aggressively. I wonder if he feels his place is under threat.

jvd, luckily for us Dembele has been a bit part player for some time now. But, I do defend him on his aggressive nature v RM as the likes of Ramos deserve it. Seems it's bred in to their dna to wind up the opposition and constantly seek bookings and sending-off's. Relieved that Dembele got away with a yellow only as with Dier moving in to defence, we don't want to be short in our midfield options.

As for the game tomorrow, nothing short of a high tempo will do....or rather need to be very incisive against the potential bus-parkers, at the same time be wary of leaving space for Zaha and AT to exploit. Furthermore, I note a number of posters have started using the words ' need to be ruthless'... something It'sMe and I have been banging on about. 2-0 is no longer a decent cushion (whilst 1-0 will do), but need to take leaf out of City's approach....keep going and you never know, we may catch up with their GD! I'll go along with Geof's expert prediction... COYS!

When all is said and done, we are playing a team who have amassed the grand total of 4 points from 10 games this season in the PL, with 1 win and 1 draw. If we can maintain the focus and the form from the Real and Liverpool games, we should not have too much problem beating Palace.

I agree that spurs players need to be more focused in finishing off teams, as 1-0 or 2-0 is not enough in PL now. So i expect Poch has drummed this attitude into the squad at Enfield training ground. Hopefully 3-0 as Geoff says... As I have a bit of a cold.. may not go to the game tomorrow.. :-(

Good points made by all, I'd say.... Agree we need to be ruthless (hope the team learned thatafter the West Ham game) and incisive, as stated, while also being brave enough to also see a forward, or switched flanks, ball played rather than often ending back to keeper.... Our passing can be a bit one dimensional / predictable and occasionally not early enough for teammate, which can really make a difference for the following pass. Trying to cut that extra touch out, I hope.... 4-0 to the clinical Spurs.

Very nice to see Winks showing the trust Poch has in him. Seems to have the better parts of Parker, Carrick and Modric in him, which really bodes well as to dictate tempo and rhythm as they're not Dier's forte and Dembele can slow it often enough.... Agree he could be "missing link" in the absence of Wilshere. Someone who sews it together as I think England (ahem, Spurs) are simply missing that. All the parts seem pretty good.

Before the Chelsea game, Mourinho laid out his definition for what it means to be a great football manager. The Man United boss believes greatest can be defined numerically: I think that probably 25 trophies is the line that people made about a successful manager. For some managers, they still need to reach one more trophy to reach that 25 level. Some others need 25 trophies to reach that level, some others need four, some others need 12, some others they need 15, some others they need 24. I have 25, but I still need one more [to go above the landmark]. So maybe when I win one more trophy than 25 I have a little bit of credit. But that’s not a problem. For the record, Man City’s Pep Guardiola and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger have both won 21 trophies in their careers so far. Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino has an empty trophy cabinet despite his brilliant work at Spurs. Of course, Chelsea’s Conte is also way behind Mourinho when it comes to lifting trophies.

In the PL, I think it's plain to see that having a very talented manager/coach helps. (of course it does). But, spending a hell of a lot of money more than most clubs (including THFC) can afford, also has a big say when it comes to success. (This too is obvious). palmover, I wonder if those guys would win as many trophies as they have, managing the likes of Brighton and Hove Albion? Or dare I say Spurs? Until Pochettino joined THFC he had managed only 2 clubs. Espanyol and Southampton. He was only at the Saints for just over a year but even so, he still had a big impact. But, how many trophies should we expect him to have won at those 2 clubs in that time? None would be a reasonable answer, I think.

It's not just the success of managers that make a team great. It's their total history. We are not a club devoid of trophies and, historically, we already have more than most. Given that, we have a 'trophy' foundation to build on in the future. I'm sure we will.

Son is a mercurial player. Nothing good for 60 mins, then bangs in a cracker. I don't think his general play is that good, but in and around the box, given time he's clinical. Although, a 1 goal lead is just an advantage in today's game, considering there's plenty of time to go.

Llorente reminds me of Berbatov, but without the extreme talent and sublime touch. I don't think he's good enough even as a deputy striker, but hopefully he proves me wrong. It will be difficult to find a striker who can push Kane, and is also willing to be on the bench a lot of the time.

Not a lot of positives about the performance, but good teams learn to win ugly and that is exactly what we did today.

In my top 3 of disappointing performances, Son (despite scoring) is up there with 2 shocking misses, Aurier for his overall game and Kane for his (uncommon) lack of impact. On to next week.

We were lucky and yet we won ugly. I thought over all GK did well, not played in how long, started jippy and made a couple of poor balls out towards the end but more than made up for it with three fine saves.

Jan and Dier and sanchez played well in what I thought was difficult due to a poor Aruier, he has a lot of work to do to get to Pl standard and our usual standard of Walker before and now Trippier. Sissoko still doesn't cut it for me, did nothing in frst half, yet he does makes some good tackles and runs but then also doesn't very little else and still cannot control a ball, how he gets in before Dembele is beyound me.

Son was very poor today other than his goal, he just couldn't control the ball and he messed up when he got free, but he scored the winner, he is not in form this season though.

Not a great game but I think he was carrying a knock, I think he was not able to push himself just in case so he wasn't as effective but not to concerned about him, be happy if he, Winks and Dele miss England games, be good for them to rest imo and not get aggrevated injuries on international duties.

Rose played well, ran out of steam but was effective for his first full game back. Overall not pretty, too mnay lose balls and not enough creativity. I still think lamela would add to this team and a Barkley would be a good enough addition going forward. Llorente, still not sure he is going to be adequate back up, too slow and I just cannot see him getting enough game time to bring him up to fitness and effectiveness. I think it's time to bring in a proper centre forward but a youngster. May be that is the way to go next season, keep Llorente but have a third young proper striker who can may be play a few games and be brought up to scratch.

Thing about this game was we won and we won at wembley again. The wenbley hoodoo is over and we managed to win without so many forst teamers and after a gruelling few weeks. Shame winks went off, he does retain the ball well even though he can lose it occassionally. When we get a fully fit squad we will be very good, but too many injuries causing us problems. Wanyama, lamela, Rose, all been out for so long and now Toby. Overall happy but it made me nervous. well done lads.

It'sME, excellent comment. Rose gives us a turn of pace and trickery down the left which Davies (although good) just doesn't have. He looked quality today. Its nice to win with our tails up, but we can't do that every week. Sometimes we have to grind out wins and we did that today, albeit with a bit of luck. I share your thoughts on Llorente, with most teams playing one up front the substitute striker position is becoming like the sub GK role. I agree that talented youth is the way to go. Llorente has a decent touch, but he's very slow.

We've beaten Palace 1-0 3x in a row I believe, but this win was different in that we could very easily have lost/drawn. There are injuries, forced changes, players not fully fit, but looking at the bigger picture, it seems we struggle to beat teams who park the bus in our home games and that was not the case last season. Scored 1 goal at home to Palace, Bournemouth and Burnley. Failed to score vs Swansea. 3 goals in those 4 games is below par. Its a problem.

Guys, First of all, an absolutely great 3points in a game we had to win regardless (as they all are). 1 the third string GK was excellent, 3brilliant saves. The Zaha chance was a must come situation as no one was going to catch Zaha. The pressure was helpful in causing Zaha to muff his simple shot. 2 Love how you want Trippier and Davies to start so HK can get service? I see rotation, nice for a change. How is Rose going to get match fit if he doesn’t play. Further I would hate to see Davies play against Zaha or Townsend. 3 Kane is still playing tentatively since his Hammy tightened and the knee further made him slower. 4 You will never get perfection but when you can win the games you should have lost, to me that’s as close as perfection as it gets.

Yes, Zaha had beaten his man but he was not in a central position. It's a tough one to defend but the rule always is that the GK only goes if he is sure to get there. Otherwise it's best to stay on your line and at least make the striker work for it. But that was his only wobble in an otherwise solid game.

Your going to have games like this and performances. It's not pretty but just wait when it happens to city and they say it's not at our best but still picked up the 3 points.

Man. city seem to be getting a lot of off side goals, however, they still have a suspect defence. Arse set up wrong against Man.city, not starting Lacozete was a major blunder by Wenger (he is losing the plot and becoming very hit and miss if i was an Arse fan i would want him replaced by a younger manager with new ideas it seems very stale at the moment). Man.city left a gaping hole on the left hand side where Delph was playing, however, Arse never exploited it. I think spurs and Man.u are both good enough to beat city, if kane is fit he will run stones ragged and i think the spurs defence is good enough to repel cities attacks. Coys PS: yesterday was a scarey win, however, i enjoyed the game as CP gave it a go and got their tactics right but not the execution, at least Spurs won it with a quality goal and that is the difference Spurs always had that quality whereas CP didn't.

Aurier, a bull in a china shop. Trippier's got nothing to worry about.

Critical - and that's a problem in itself. It's not like Trippier has been perfect either. For all those who thought we'd barely miss Walker, well it might put last year's performances in perspective. Maybe Kyle will end up getting the credit he was due.
