Paul Merson is tipping Tottenham to continue their fine form with a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Wembley in the Premier League on Sunday.

Spurs head into their home clash against their London rivals fresh from their brilliant 3-1 win over Real Madrid on Wednesday night in the Champions League.

Two goals from Dele Alli and one from Christian Eriksen handed the home side all three points against the Spanish giants.

Spurs now turn their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their home clash with Roy Hodgson’s Palace side on Sunday.

The north Londoners are currently third in the table and eight points behind leaders Manchester City in the race for the title after 10 games of the new campaign.

And Arsenal legend Merson admits that he cannot see anything other than a Spurs victory against the Eagles on Sunday.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Merson said: “Palace were fortunate the other day.

“They were 2-0 down and I know Roy [Hodgson] said they deserved to get a draw in the end, but we can all play when we are 2-0 down when there’s nothing to lose.

“You have to do that when it is still goalless and I expect Tottenham to carry on with the confidence they have been playing with. They have just beaten the European champions, so I will go 3-0 Tottenham.”

Tottenham are aiming to improve their Premier League form this season and go one better after their second-placed finish in the top flight last term.

Spurs, who finished in third place in the 2015-16 campaign, are yet to win a trophy under Mauricio Pochettino since his appointment back in May 2014.
