33) while team-mate Son Heung-min is available at 6/1 (7. 00). Adler Nascimento is waiting to make his first appearance for Crystal Palace's senior team but he is the joint lowest-priced player to break the deadlock at 13/2 (7. 50) with Odsonne Edouard and Wilfried Zaha set at the same price. Crystal Palace vs Tottenham previewTottenham have had a bit of a dip in form recently, having won just one of their last five matches in all competitions. The team's form has upset coach Antonio Conte, who said the squad is too thin to continue to fight in multiple competitions.
Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV Info and PreviewMichael Regan/Getty ImagesEven when he's not even playing, Gareth Bale is still dominating the headlines. With speculation over a transfer to Real Madrid continuing to run rampant, the Guardian's David Hytner reported Bale will miss the first three matches of the season as a result of him having missed most of the preseason due to injury. That means the winger will miss the opener against Crystal Palace, a Europa League fixture against Dinamo Tbilisi and the critical North London Derby. Even without Bale, Tottenham should be able to get by just fine.
At Arsenal, he had to adapt to an attacking style where the ball was played on the ground through the middle of the pitch. Now having moved to Crystal Palace for a full season, this could be a big year for Chamakh, at least big by the standards he set at Arsenal. Ian Holloway used a pretty direct style at Blackpool and has done the same at Crystal Palace. That should be a major benefit to Chamakh. He was on loan to West Ham last season but didn't have much opportunity to get in the side.
“Last season we made a miracle, I continue to repeat, ” he said. “It happened why? Because we played only one competition, we played with 12 to 13 players and they didn’t have injuries in the last 15 games and we played with the best players every game because, I repeat, we played only the league. The situation is clear and I think you can see our situation from the start of the season. " They are now three points behind United in the race for a top four finish and still have Liverpool and Brentford breathing down their necks. Crystal Palace vs Tottenham tips and predictionsDespite Spurs' recent struggles, Conte will have his team fired up to win this one and they could prove too strong for Palace in this game.
With the Eagles, he'll be the main target man and major focus of the attack. Given the strength of Tottenham's defence, Chamakh might have a hard time making much of an impact. Spurs will be sure to key on him. If Crystal Palace are to get anything, Chamakh will likely be the guy to make it happen. Tottenham Player to Watch: PaulinhoOn the whole, Tottenham have done very well in this summer's transfer window, perhaps the best in the Premier League.
Antonio Conte's team slipped up against Aston Villa after drawing 2-2 with Brentford in their last two matches, seeing them drop behind Manchester United and into fifth.

They've had a great summer and recently confirmed the purchase of Etienne Capoue (h/t Tottenham's Instagram account). Meanwhile, Crystal Palace's biggest signing of the summer has been Marouane Chamakh. Palace have been hit hard by Wilfried Zaha finally moving to Manchester United. The winger was a huge part of the Eagles' promotional campaign. Without him, they lack a creative presence in the attack who can get his teammates involved. This could be a tough season for Palace fans, as the club will struggle to stay out of the relegation zone. Here's a quick preview for this Sunday's clash. When: Sunday, August 18, at 8:30 a.
m. ET (13:30 BST)Where: Selhurst Park, London, EnglandWatch: NBC Sports NetworkLive Stream: NBC Sports Live ExtraCrystal Palace Player to Watch: Marouane ChamakhMarouane Chamakh is one of the biggest symbols of Arsenal's failures in the transfer market. The 29-year-old did very well for Bordeaux but was a flop at the Emirates. The biggest problem for Chamakh is that while in France, he benefited from what was a more direct style of play. He received a lot of service from wide areas.
The crown jewel of the transfer purchases is Paulinho. The 25-year-old was one of the best players at the 2013 Confederations Cup as Brazil romped to a title. It's never good to base your judgment of a player off just one tournament, though. Fortunately for Spurs, Paulinho has demonstrated his skills in both the Club World Cup and Brasileirao for Corinthians. With the signing of Etienne Capoue, as confirmed by the Guardian, Paulinho should have a little more creative licence in midfield. He's not going to have to be the sole midfielder sitting in front of the back four. During Brazil's tremendous run in the Confederations Cup, Paulinho displayed how good a of link he can be in midfield. With Luiz Gustavo behind him and Oscar up closer to goal, he was the perfect link between the two.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Predictions, tips & betting oddsBetting 09:00 GMT 03/01/2023 Antonio Conte's men need the three points to ensure they get back in the fight for a top four finish Tottenham hope to get back in the fight for fourth place in the Premier League on Wednesday when they come up against Crystal Palace.
At Spurs, he can be that conduit between Capoue and somebody like Gareth Bale, Moussa Dembele, Lewis Holtby or Gylfi Sigurdsson as the season goes on. Against Crystal Palace, Paulinho should have a nice welcome into the Premier League. The Eagles lack a lot of talent and strength in midfield, so the Brazilian should have an easy time threading the ball through to his teammates and may even have an effort or two on goal. PredictionThis one is gonna be Spurs, Spurs and more Spurs. They outmatch Crystal Palace in just about every aspect of play. Even without Bale, Tottenham will cruise to victory. With the new signings Andre Villas-Boas has made, this is a nice opening match of the season.
