Following a rare fortnight with no Premier League football, we grace the North London soil again on Saturday afternoon, hosting near neighbours Crystal Palace in a capital derby. We went down 1-2 to wolves two weeks ago, while the Oliver Glasner era at Selhurst Park began with a 3-0 of Burnley last weekend.

Spurs
On account of Chelsea's unsuccessful endeavours in the EFL Cup final - which led to the postponement of their scheduled London derby with us - we have endured two weeks of reflection after emulating the Blues with a humbling home defeat to Wolves’ counter-attacking masters on February 17.

After Kulusevski poked home through Joase Sa’s legs at the near post to cancel outGomes’s opening header, the latter left his mark on the our Stadium turf again, lashing in from Neto's ninth assist of the top-flight campaign to hand Spurs their first Premier League loss of 2024.

In truth, an eventual defeat was on the cards for us if our displays against Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion - whom we only defeated by virtue of a last-minute winner - were anything to go by, and er have now relinquished fourth place in the EPL to Aston Villa once more.

With a game in hand, we - whose quest for top-level European competition has not been helped by an eight-game run without a clean sheet in the Premier League - have a five-point gap to make up to the Lions and are also just three points better off than Manchester United.


In addition to our defensive frailties, we have already been bested in two home London derbies this season - going down to Chelsea and West Ham United - but Kulusevski's consolation versus Wolves means that our exceptional scoring streak in the Premier League now stands at 37 matches.

Palace
Following Postecoglou's flying start to life in English football, his fellow Premier League novice Glasner revelled in a dream Selhurst Park debut at the Crystal Palace helm, having taken the reins from the infirm Hodgson following the 76-year-old's decision to step aside.

After taking his seat in the stands to witness Palace's new three-at-the-back system frustrate Everton in a 1-1 draw, the former Eintracht Frankfurt head coach masterminded a resounding beating of Burnley on February 24, where they all made the net bulge in an 11-minute flurry.

Whether the Eagles' soaring success is a catalyst for change or simply down to the famed new manager bounce only time will tell, but thanks to just a seventh Premier League win of the season, the 13th-placed visitors boast a comfortable eight-point advantage over 18th-placed Luton Town.

With a debut win already under his belt, next on Glasner's agenda is snapping an unsightly eight-game winless run on the road for Crystal Palace, who have not prevailed on their travels since coincidentally beating Burnley on November 4, and their streak without a London derby triumph on enemy territory now stands at nine matches.


That sequence includes a 2-1 loss to us at Selhurst Park on October 27, where we registered their fourth straight win over Crystal Palace, whose last success away to us came in the fifth round of the 2015-16 FA Cup thanks to Martin Kelly's first and only goal for the Eagles.
