*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Tottenham are the expected winners of this game with a probability of 66.7%, and we agree with the bookmakers on this selection.

Tottenham's form has been hit and miss of late and the the club will be looking to bounce back from their surprise defeat at home to Wolves last time out. Palace have picked up four points from their last two league games but have been poor on their travels so will be expecting a tough 90 minutes at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Player to watch – James Maddison

James Maddison provides the creative spark in this Tottenham side and the England international could play a big part in a Spurs victory this weekend.

Maddison has not only chipped in with six assists in the league this season, he has also scored three goals as well. With Richarlison and Son in front of him, Maddison should have plenty of options to pass to in the final third this weekend against a Crystal Palace defence that hasn't been very convincing so far this season.

Playing the role of playmaker

We're backing Maddison to put in another impressive performance this weekend which should guide Tottenham back to winning ways.
