Tip Reasoning

  • Tottenham have drawn with Liverpool and beaten West Ham since returning to action.
  • Spurs have won six of their nine home games in the Premier League.
  • Crystal Palace have lost four of their eight trips in the league.
  • Palace have failed to score in all five of their away losses in all competitions.

Spurs starting to surge under Conte

Tottenham take on Crystal Palace in a Premier League London derby on Boxing Day and the hosts look good value to secure all three points.

Spurs returned from a coronavirus enforced two-week break with an encouraging 2-2 draw with Liverpool at home. Antonio Conte’s men then played West Ham in the EFL Cup and booked their place in the last four courtesy of a 2-1 win, so they look a side in form after their time off.

Palace’s schedule has also been hit by Covid-19 and their game at Watford last weekend was postponed. That means that Spurs have played twice since the Eagles’ last game, a 2-2 draw at home to Southampton, but I doubt fatigue will be an issue for the hosts given they had a two-week layoff themselves earlier this month.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium a stronghold for Spurs

Spurs have been dogged by inconsistent form throughout the season but they have improved under Conte and have been strong at home all season.

Tottenham have won six of their nine home games in the league and have lost just twice – and both of those defeats have come against sides in the top six. The fact Spurs managed to take a point against Liverpool and then beat West Ham also suggests they should be able to get the better of poor travellers Palace.

The visitors, who sit in 11th spot in the table, have lost four of their eight away games in the league and have lost their last two on the road without scoring. As such, a home win looks a good option for our main bet in this match-up.

Goals an issue for Palace away

Palace have failed to score in all five of their defeats away from home in all competitions and that pattern may well continue on Boxing Day. Prior to conceding twice against Liverpool, Spurs had managed back-to-back clean sheets at home and they have three shut-outs in their last five league games so they may well be able to keep Palace at bay. Spurs have scored at least two goals in each of their last four home league matches so a 2-0 win for the hosts looks the way to go in the correct score market.
