The Lilywhites finished in third place in the Premier League table last season after a four-game winless run to end the campaign allowed Leicester City to win the title and Arsenal to hoist themselves into runners-up spot.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side had to come from behind to rescue a point at Goodison Park on the opening weekend of the Premier League season after a 1-1 draw with Ronald Koeman’s new-look Everton outfit.
Tottenham’s opponents on Saturday are Palace as Alan Pardew looks to turnaround the Eagles’s fortunes after a miserable 2016 so far.
And former Arsenal midfielder Merson is confident that the north London side will get their much-needed win at White Hart Lane tomorrow afternoon.
“Spurs were disappointing in the first half against Everton, who should have been out of sight at half-time, but they improved after the break,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“Palace had a shocking result at home and it looks like they need a forward. Dwight Gayle has gone, Yannick Bolasie just went and they fired blanks against West Brom so it’s a bit of a strange one.”
Tottenham signed two players in the summer transfer window as Pochettino looks to improve on last season’s third-place finish.
The Lilywhites landed Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama before signing Vincent Janssen from Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar.
