Tottenham v Crystal Palace preview: It's a big game for Harry Kane

By Tottenham correspondent Paul Rayner
Football Insider looks ahead to the Premier League clash at the White Hart Lane with our Tottenham v Crystal Palace preview that details the players to watch, form guide, best bets, stats and recalls a key moment from this fixture in the past.
KICK-OFF TIME: Sunday, 1.30pm
TV: Live on Sky Sports 1
IT’S A BIG GAME FOR…
Harry Kane. Again. Scoring only for England won’t appease those at the Lane. Yet to score for his club this season, Kane needs to get this particular monkey off his back. And soon.  Crystal Palace have made a far stronger start to the season that most predicted and their defence is well-drilled, experienced and difficult to break down. Spurs have had a faltering start to the season and badly need their only established striker to get his goal account up and running.
PLAYER TO WATCH…
Dele Alli. Arrived as a relative unknown from MK Dons but is making waves with his pace, trickery and inventiveness. Still in his teens, the attacking midfielder has looked lively in his occasional Premier League appearances and caused mayhem against minnows Qarabag on Thursday night. Using the Europa League to establish a reputation and clinch a regular weekend starting spot. Remind you of anyone?
PAST MEETINGS…
Premier League: Crystal Palace 2 (Gayle, Puncheon) Tottenham 1 (Kane), January 2015
Premier League: Tottenham 0 Crystal Palace 0 December 2014
REMEMBER WHEN…
Jason Puncheon’s penalty went into orbit. Will he have the nerve to take one if awarded this time?  Has the ball landed yet?

Over and out: Jason Puncheon failed to hit target with penalty howler
