Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Crystal Palace In The Premier League

Tottenham will clash against bottom feeders Crystal Palace in gameweek 11 of the Premier League, at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

After last week’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United, our boys bounced back brilliantly, thrashing European champions Real Madrid 3-1 in the midweek UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night at home. And manager Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that his team continues in the same vein of form against Roy Hodgson’s side come Sunday.

Team News 

In what could be a major setback for Tottenham, captain Hugo Lloris will be ruled out close to two weeks due to a thigh injury he picked up against Madrid. Defensive mainstay Toby Alderweireld is unlikely to be involved after succumbing to a hamstring injury in the midweek game. Midfielder Victor Wanyama and winger Erik Lamela are confirmed absentees for Spurs.  

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino 

Formation: 3-4-2-1 

Michel Vorm (GK) 

With captain Hugo Lloris sidelined for the game, Dutch shot stopper Michel Vorm is all set to make his first Premier League appearance of the season.

Eric Dier (CB) 

With Alderweireld not likely to feature for the North Londoners, Eric Dier should start in the three-man backline on Sunday. 

Davinson Sanchez (CB) 

The Colombian centre-half is proving to be a brilliant piece of investment for the club. Should once again take the field in the heart of the defence.  

Jan Vertonghen (CB) 

The Belgian centre-half has been the proverbial rock at the back for Spurs. Will look to continue in a similar fashion on Sunday. 

Serge Aurier (RWB) 

The Ivory Coast international might find a place in the starting XI, despite Kieran Trippier’s brilliance against Real Madrid, as Poch might look to rotate.  

Moussa Sissoko (CM) 

With Dier moving into the defensive line, Frenchman Moussa Sissoko should start in the middle of the park on Sunday afternoon.  

Harry Winks (CM) 

The young academy product is growing in stature with every passing game for Tottenham. Should start once again ahead of Mousa Dembele.  

Danny Rose (LWB) 

Having returned from injury, a game against bottom side Crystal Palace could be the right time to reintroduce Danny Rose to Premier League football.  

Christian Eriksen (RAM) 

The Danish playmaker got himself on the scoresheet against Los Galacticos in the midweek game and will be keen on putting in a similar display against the Eagles.  

Dele Alli (LAM) 

The English midfielder was absolutely sensational against Madrid in the European fixture. Expect him to cause some serious damage to the Palace backline.  

Harry Kane (ST) 

Shook off injury concerns to feature against Madrid and was brilliant, even if he didn’t find the net. A definite starter against Palace.

Incidents of alcohol and drug abuse surface among workers at Tottenham’s new stadium



Construction News (h/t Independent) claims to have first-hand accounts of workers under the influence of alcohol and drugs at our new stadium.

Tottenham’s £850m new home has been hit by numerous delays and the club haven’t shared a final date for the launch of the stadium.

A source speaking to Construction News (h/t Independent) said:

“I’ve not worked on a site like that in a long, long time.

“There were people off their heads, drinking cans first thing in the morning before going on to site and snorting coke in the toilets.”

However, Mace have denied such claims and a company spokesperson claimed that tests were carried out regularly to ensure the safety of the staff.

The personnel was quoted by the Independent saying:

“We carry out regular random drugs and alcohol testing to ensure that our rules are enforced throughout our supply chain. Any concerns about specific health and safety risks should have been flagged to Mace health and safety staff on the project.”

Our new stadium was expected to be completed for the game against Liverpool on 15th September but Tottenham will continue playing their home games at Wembley.

This latest report will be a further blow to Tottenham as the stadium is behind schedule and we had reported that the home might not be ready before 2019.

“The season is saved”, “This is the signing you make?” – Some Spurs fans unhappy with latest deal by club



Tottenham haven’t done all that well in recent games with three losses on the spin. The Premier League loss against Liverpool was tough to take but the 2-1 defeat at Inter Milan was even worse.

We were leading till the 85th minute before Mauro Icardi and Matias Vecino got the goals at San Siro.

Tottenham bounced back with a win against Brighton & Hove Albion but prior to that, the team had time to pose for a new range of apparel from Hugo Boss.

A post from the Spurs Twitter account revealed that our first-team squad would be sporting suits from the company from the ‘Create Your Look’ line.

Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and a host of other players and staff were pictured in the dapper suits.

It isn’t a surprise that teams are being sponsored by brands but this deal does come a little late, given that our season is well over a month in.

Some fans, however, were upset with the deal and here are some of those reactions from Twitter.

Lamela stars: Player ratings from Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion



Tottenham got back to winning ways after three successive defeats, thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela.

Glenn Murray handled the ball late in the first half which allowed Kane to score from the spot. The home team came at us with all they had in the second half and Paulo Gazzaniga pulled off a great save before Danny Rose crossed in for Lamela to slot in our second.

Anthony Knockaert pulled one back in stoppage time to make it a nervous last minute or so but we held on for all three points.

There were a few heroes on the pitch today and here are the player ratings from the game.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 6.5/10

The youngster did pretty well and made one good save to deny Knockaert. He couldn’t do much regarding the goal he conceded.

Kieran Trippier – 6/10

Trippier didn’t have the greatest time as he struggled a bit and even got a yellow card for a needless foul.

Toby Alderweireld – 7.5/10

The Belgian had a great chance to score early on and did a great job at keeping things tight for Spurs.

Jan Vertonghen – 7/10

Vertonghen didn’t have a lot to do at the back but he helped us to an important win in the final few minutes of the game.

Danny Rose – 7/10

Rose got the assist for the second goal but didn’t have the greatest of games for us. The Englishman should have done better for the goal we conceded.

Eric Dier – 5.5/10

This was another poor performance from the Englishman as he kept on making the wrong passes and losing possession.

Mousa Dembele – 7/10

The Belgian had a decent outing as his passing was good and kept things ticking for Spurs in the middle of the park.

Son Heung-min – 6/10

This was a quiet outing for the South Korean and he should have done more to help Spurs get all three points.

Christian Eriksen – 6/10

Another player who seemed to be out of touch was Eriksen. He must do a lot more if he is to keep his place in the team.

Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

The Brazilian tried to do things but they weren’t coming off. He did have a role in the second goal and was later subbed by Dele Alli.

Harry Kane – 6.5/10

Kane scored the penalty but couldn’t get another shot away as Brighton did well at keeping him quiet.


Erik Lamela – 7.5/10

The Argentine changed things as he provided an attacking outlet. He did well for the goal and maybe should start more games.

Dele Alli – N/A

The Englishman didn’t have a lot of time to make a difference to the game.
