Team news

Palace's injured stars are still recovering from their respective issues with striker Connor Wickham nursing a thigh strain.

Centre half Scott Dann (knee), plus right back Joel Ward and midfielder Jonny Williams are still sidelined with muscle injuries. Front man Christian Benteke is recovering from his recent knee op.

Tottenham's Mousa Dembele is out after suffering ankle ligament damage at Wolves. Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen played against PSV in midweek and could be rested, while Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama are fit again.

Quotes

Roy Hodgson

"It’s important for the players to realise that the performances are important and that if we are to get points and are to win games then it will be because we are giving good performances.

"We are restricting opposing teams’ chances and ability to score against us while we ourselves are posing a threat.

"In the last two games I’ve seen that, so we have to keep going, knowing full well once again (that) the opposition in front of us in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur is going to be a very difficult one because of the quality of their players."

Mauricio Pochettino

"It was a tough game against PSV in the Champions League. Then they [Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli] are going to move to the national team I think. It will be tough to play two games.

"That is why we need to take care and send them really fresh. That is why we are thinking if they are going to play or not against Palace.

"Yes it is true if you said to me would you prefer all my international players stay here and rest for two weeks without competition, I would say yes. But that is impossible."
