Stan Collymore predicts Tottenham v Crystal Palace
By Will Butcher
Stan Collymore has predicted an away victory for Tottenham against London rivals Crystal Palace as the two sides go head-to-head on Wednesday night.
Spurs will be desperate to get back to winning ways and maintain their Premier League title chase, after losing 4-2 to league leaders Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday evening.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, former Liverpool and Aston Villa star Collymore claimed Spurs would earn their 22nd league win of the season 3-1.
However, Collymore believes Spurs will not make up any ground on Antonio Conte’s side, who will keep their four-point deficit with a 2-0 win over Southampton on Tuesday night.
Chelsea 2 Southampton 0
Arsenal 3 Leicester 1
Boro 1 Sunderland 1
Palace 1 Spurs 3
City 2 United 2

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won their last seven Premier League outings and have reduced the gap between themselves and Chelsea from 10 points to just four.

However, with six games remaining, Spurs must look to earn maximum points from every match.
Spurs will be hoping for a repeat of the reverse fixture against Palace as they travel the short distance across London to Selhurst Park, after beating the Eagles 1-0 in August.
However, they will face a tough task beating Sam Allardyce’s side, who have won six of their last eight league games including triumphs against the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.
