Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Tottenham will have a chance to extend their early advantage at the top in the first Premier League game of the weekend when they travel to face Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace have two points from their first three games this season, earning an impressive draw at West Ham prior to the international break.

Twice behind, loanee Conor Gallagher scored a brace, Palace’s first goals of the season to earn the Eagles a point.

Tottenham secured a third consecutive 1-0 win when they edged past Watford last time out.

Heung Min Son’s free-kick was the difference, with Dele Alli missing their best chance of a second goal.
