Andy Gray states his prediction for Tottenham v Crystal Palace
Andy Gray looks ahead to Tottenham's FA Cup clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday
Andy Gray is tipping Tottenham to beat Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane on Sunday and book their place in the sixth round of the FA Cup.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have been in fine form this season and head into Sunday’s game on the back of their 1-1 draw with Fiorentina in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Spurs have won eight of their last 10 Premier League games and beat Manchester City 2-1 at The Etihad last weekend to move up to second place and two points behind Leicester heading into the final 12 matches of the campaign.
Gray has been thoroughly impressed by what he has seen from Spurs so far this season and is tipping the Lilywhites to see off the Eagles on Sunday.
Writing in his blog for Paddy Power, Gray said: “Everyone is looking at Spurs as title contenders.
“They’re in so many competitions, so I think they need to decide on what their priorities are.
“I believe Pochettino has the squad capable of winning any of the tournaments they’re still in. I don’t think they’ll go into this game with every one of their big hitters playing.
“Palace’s form is poor, their defeat to Watford was a kick in the teeth and they’ve only got 1 point from the last 18 available. It won’t be a classic, but I think Spurs will sneak it.”
Tottenham’s next Premier League game is a home clash against Swansea City at White Hart Lane on Sunday 28 February.
