Spurs will want to get back to winning ways starting with victory against Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane on January, 11.

In Tottenham’s previous game they lost 2-0 to fierce rivals Arsenal in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Eagles will be hoping they can achieve a surprise result as they currently sit in the relegation zone.

Palace have lost 7 of their 9 away matches this season, and will need an upturn in fortunes soon.

Spurs boss Tim Sherwood has made a positive impact on his club's league form since taking the reign.

He has achieved 10 points from his first four premier league games, though he has also overseen Spurs' elimination from both the domestic cups.

Under the management of AVB the North Londoners ran out 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture at Selhurst Park in September thanks to a Roberto Soldado penalty.

The North London side were fortunate on the day, as a debatable penalty cost Ian Holloway a positive start to the top-flight campaign.

There is renewed optimism among Crystal Palace supporters since Tony Pulis replaced Holloway.

Pulis has won three of his matches  in charge and has brought stability to the side.

They look harder to beat and gave Manchester City and Chelsea tough challenges, so Spurs know they will be no pushovers.

The White Hart Lane faithful will demand all three points as their club are just two points off a Champions League place.

Will Tottenham’s superior quality prevail or will Pulis’ men show more fight and desire to potentially lift them from the relegation places?
