Tottenham Hotspur face Crystal Palace on Saturday as they attempt to continue their fine start to their Premier League campaign.

The north London outfit are the only team in the division yet to drop a single point, and while Crystal Palace don’t represent the toughest challenge Spurs have faced, this could be a tough fixture.

Indeed, Tottenham come into this one with a depleted squad. The likes of Davinson Sanchez, Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso are unavailable due to their late returns from international duty, while Heung-Min Son and Steven Bergwijn are doubts due to injuries they picked up during the last fortnight.

With that in mind, we’ve had a go at predicting Tottenham’s starting XI for this one…

Ranking EVERY Premier League Team’s Record Sale

We think that Tottenham will line up in a 4-3-3 for this one.

We expect Emerson Royal to make his debut as Japhet Tanganga shifts to centre-half to cover for Sanchez and Romero’s absences.

One player we do expect to recover in time for this game is Oliver Skipp who limped off for England’s U21s earlier this week.

Indeed, Skipp is reportedly hopeful of being fit for this one, while he’s also been pictured back in training, so things are looking good for the youngster.

The front-three has also been affected by injury as Son and Bergwijn drop out, meaning that Lucas Moura is back in the side, while Bryan Gil is handed a full Premier League debut.

As ever, Harry Kane is the man chosen to spearhead the Tottenham attack.
