Our football match prediction:
Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur face each other in the London derby at Selhurst Park. The Eagles aim to build on a thrilling 2-1 win over Liverpool at Anfield, while Spurs are eager to bounce back from the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea. Crystal Palace came from behind to beat Jurgen Klopp’s troops at the weekend and thanks to the triumph they moved one step closer to avoiding relegation to the Championship. Sam Allardyce is undisputedly the right man for the job, but his men will have a big fish to fry in Wednesday’s football game against high-flying Spurs. Tottenham Hotspur are after their eighth consecutive win in the Premier League and seeing that they are four points behind league leaders Chelsea in the standings, this has to go down as a must win situation for the visitors and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration.
Highlighted Player (Townsend):
Andros Townsend is an English footballer who plays for Crystal Palace. He started his professional career at Tottenham Hotspur (2009), but he played for a number of English clubs on loan in the past (Yeovil Town, Leyton Orient, MK Dons, Ipswich Town, Watford, Millwall, Leeds United, Birmingham City, Queens Park Rangers). On 26 January, 2016, Townsend signed a deal with Newcastle United for a fee of £12 million. However, following Newcastle’s relegation to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign, Andros joined Crystal Palace on a five-year contract as the Eagles decided to match his £13 million release clause. Andros Townsend plays as a winger and he made his England debut on 11 October, 2013. Back then England recorded a 4-1 win over Montenegro in the World Cup qualifiers. The Crystal Palace footballer was born in Leytonstone on 16 July, 1991 and he attended Rush Croft Sports College. Andros Townsend is a Tottenham Hotspur fan, but he couldn’t quite realise his potential while at White Hart Lane
