Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to move three points clear at the top of the Premier League table on Sunday afternoon, when they take on Crystal Palace. 

Spurs are currently top of the table, but are level on points with Manchester City, after they were held to a goalless draw with local rivals Manchester United on Saturday evening.

Jose Mourinho made a number of changes to his side for their Europa League clash against Belgian side Antwerp in midweek, although Dele Alli was an unused substitute.

The midfielder has been named in the matchday squad, as well as Aurier, who starts, and fans were delighted.

Another player that was seen in the team was Serge Aurier, with the right-back missing their match against Antwerp in midweek, with Matt Doherty starting in defence for Mourinho’s side.

Spurs take on a Crystal Palace side that have shown improvement this season under the management of Roy Hodgson, and they head into this one full of confidence, after thrashing relegation-threatened West Brom 5-1 at the Hawthorns in their most recent match.

Alli has struggled for consistent game time this season, with the England international only making eight appearances in all competitions for Spurs this term, which will be frustrating for the 24-year-old, with only two of those being in the Premier League.

The Englishman will surely be desperate to prove his worth if he’s given a chance today.
