Michael Owen predicts the outcome of Crystal Palace v Tottenham
Michael Owen tips Tottenham to secure a win at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday
Michael Owen is tipping Tottenham to secure victory over Crystal Palace in Saturday’s Premier League clash at Selhurst Park.
The Lilywhites returned to winning ways in the top flight last weekend as they beat Sunderland 4-1 at White Hart Lane to keep them in fourth place in the table.
Spurs head into this weekend’s round of fixtures just five points behind leaders Arsenal and having won five of their last 10 Premier League games.
And former Liverpool and England striker Owen is tipping Spurs to secure victory at Palace on Saturday.
Owen wrote in his column for Bet Victor: “Whilst Leicester disappointed, Spurs impressed, with manager Mauricio Pochettino juggling his pack nicely to turn the Foxes over 2-0 despite the spine of the team left on the bench at the King Power.
“The quartet of Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane should all return to the side and ensure Spurs complete a third straight win in all competitions at the Eagles’ expense.”
Spurs, who were beaten last season’s League Cup final by Chelsea, booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday night thanks to an impressive 2-0 win away to Leicester City.
Mauricio Pochettino has been tasked with guiding Spurs back into the top four after they finished fifth under the Argentine last season.
