We continue to discuss the English Championship and now I would like to talk about the meeting between Tottenham and Crystal Palace.
Conte’s arrival allowed Tottenham to finally gain points consistently and win. In recent matches, the Spurs look and perform quite well. Moreover, the club did not limit itself to victories in the championship, West Ham was beaten in the FA Cup, thereby providing the Spurs with a place in the semifinals. Finally, in the Premier League match, Hari Kane scored, who could not score in the championship for more than two months. In general, Conte was able to give a result from the start, so the battle for the fourth, league-champion place will be very interesting to follow.
Crystal Palace is having a pretty good season with the exception of one tournament segment, when the team lost three matches in a row. Patrick Vieira has gathered around him a combat-ready team that plays open and attacking football. Crystal Palace scores a lot for a team that is on the eleventh line. They have good (by British standards) forwards, in the person of Benteke and Zaa, who are basically the main strength of the team in attack.
Spurs have scored very little this season, but that was before Conte came, and now almost every team match ends on horseback. Crystal Palace play very poorly away, and Conte’s players have gained a very good pace, so I have no doubts that Tottenham will win this match. My prediction for this meeting is Tottenham’s victory and the final total over 2.5. It seems to me that a match rich in goals awaits us.
