Tottenham must put their Champions League heroics against Real Madrid to one side on Sunday and focus their attentions on Premier League London rivals Crystal Palace.




Spurs bounced back from domestic disappointments in the EFL Cup against West Ham and League rivals Manchester United to stun Zinedine Zidane's Real, with Dele Alli (two) and Christian Eriksen sealing a memorable 3-1 win at Wembley.

While Spurs may have swept aside the Champions League holders with it, it is games against the likes of Palace that could well define their season in terms of a credible title challenge.

Palace, meanwhile, head to Wembley with growing confidence after snatching a late 2-2 draw against West Ham, and Roy Hodgson's Eagles have already shown they can surprise the big boys by beating Chelsea this season.

Tottenham host Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium with kick-off scheduled for 12pm on Sunday, November 5.

Team News

Tottenham will be without Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld. Lloris sustained a groin injury and Alderweireld a hamstring strain against Real Madrid on Wednesday, but Harry Kane came through the match unscathed after shaking off his own hamstring problem.

Erik Lamela is not yet ready to return, however, after a year-long issue with his hips while Victor Wanyama also remains out with a knee injury.




Mamadou Sakho and James McArthur will both be in contention for Palace.

Defender Sakho and midfielder McArthur both returned to training following their respective calf and ankle injuries.

Patrick Van Aanholt is a doubt because of a hamstring injury, but could yet train on Saturday. Chung Yong Lee (hamstring) has been ruled out and the game will come too soon for striker Christian Benteke (knee).

Toby Alderweireld will miss out after picking up a hamstring problem against Real Madrid, though his likely absence of a few weeks will be tempered by the upcoming international break.

Pochettino has Moussa Dembele back, and will likely start alongside Harry Winks - who was superb against Madrid's midfield - with Eric Dier slotting into defence to cover Alderweireld's absence.




Mamadou Sakho is pressing to be fit in time for the trip across London, while Christian Benteke remains out. Patrick van Aanholt also came off injured early against West Ham, and should miss out.

Predicted line-ups

Tottenham starting XI: Lloris; Dier, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Aurier, Winks, Dembele, Rose; Eriksen, Dele Alli; Kane



Crystal Palace starting XI: Speroni; Ward, Dann, Tomkins, Schlupp; Loftus-Cheek, Cabaye, Milivojevic; Puncheon, Zaha, Townsend
