England Premier League
Sunday 26th July 2020
Kick off at 4pm BST
Venue: Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace have not played their best football since knowing they were safe, losing 7 consecutive games, they are well and truly in holiday mode. However they have enough dangerous players to give most clubs a game and would love to beat their London rivals in their final game of the season.
It helps that Palace will be at home however they have lost plenty of games at Selhurst Park but they are sure to raise their game for the visit of Tottenham.
Tottenham will keep fighting until the last game, and their form is very good, dropping just 2 points in their last 5 matches but overall this has been disappointing season for the club who reached last seasons Champions League final. Jose Mourinho will want a full proper season under his belt before being judged though, and will want his team to get a good win in the final game of the season, especially as it could result in a Europa League place.
For Tottenham it is about ending this season on a high now and thinking about the next which could become Mourinho’s most important season ever. There will be a magnifying glass on him that is for sure. Tottenham have been poor away from home this season even with Mourinho in charge and this visit to Selhurst Park could be quite a battle.
Crystal Palace: Palace have numerous long term injuries, Luka Milivojevic is also doubtful for this game.
Tottenham: Dele Alli is once again doubtful, whilst Tanguy Ndombele remains unavailable.

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Prediction:
Until recently Tottenham had looked rusty since the restart but their recent form has been very good and they will be pushing for a win against holiday mode Crystal Palace. One player who needs to step up more is Son, everyone knows the quality of the South Korean player and he could well be worth backing here, he loves playing against Palace and in the past has scored a few goals against them. This is a tough game for Tottenham but they will want to finish on a high with a Europa League place they and have a fantastic record against Roy Hodgson’s team. So whilst the game could be a close affair we will be backing the away side to get all three points here.
