Crystal Palace vs Tottenham prediction: Harry Kane looks to keep Spurs at top of the table

By Tom Phillips

Things are going well for Tottenham Hotspur as the north London look to keep their 100% record against a Crystal Palace who are yet to pick up a win this season.

Spurs are the favourites at evens with Grosvenor Sport while Palace are 3/1 and a draw is 23/10.

Both sides start the season with new managers who have had polar-opposite starts to the season. Nuno Espirito Santo has a 100% record to his name in the Premier League with a Manager of the Month award too while Patrick Vieira has scraped two draws and no wins so far.

For Spurs fans, some felt underwhelmed with the Santo appointment but with the squad responding brilliantly to his counter-attacking style of play, it is starting to rub off on his critics within the club now too.

For Vieira, their only highlight was a 2-2 draw against West Ham which showed impressive fight back form the Eagles to pick up a point but they are yet to demonstrate any conviction to control a match so far.

Their summer has been spent recruiting a completely new team, let alone backroom staff, so this will take time for everything to gel and work for the former Arsenal man - just not at the moment.
