Friday night throws up an all-London affair as Premier League frontrunners Tottenham Hotspur make the trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.

Spurs have been showing there is life after Harry Kane following the England international’s high-profile move to Bayern Munich at the close of the summer transfer window.

Sitting pretty at the top of the table after the first nine games of the season, Ange Postecoglou’s side will take their unbeaten record to a somewhat inconsistent Palace side that have had three wins, three draws and three defeats so far.

Football Bet of the Day – Friday 27th October

  • Tottenham to win to nil @ 11/5

Spurs have been impressing with their attacking football this season, with 20 goals already notched up at this stage of the campaign.

Son Heung-min has made the central attacking role his own since Kane’s departure and the South Korean international will certainly be a player to look out for in the goalscorer markets.

However, it’s their defensive work that has also been key to Postecoglou’s start south of the border following his successful spell in Glasgow at Scottish champions Celtic.

Conceding just eight goals in their first nine league games of the campaign, only reigning champions Manchester City have conceded fewer than Tottenham at this stage.

After a 1-0 win at Luton Town, Spurs made it two clean sheets on the bounce last time out with a 2-0 victory over Fulham on Monday night.

Tottenham look capable of a third successive shutout against a Crystal Palace side that have only scored seven goals in their first nine outings of the league campaign.

Only 19th-place strugglers Bournemouth have scored fewer goals than Roy Hodgson’s Eagles.

Palace 16/5, Draw 11/4, Spurs 4/5

Looking back at the recent meetings between Tottenham and Palace highlights even more reasons why Tottenham to win to nil is the Football Bet of the Day for Friday at 11/5.

Tottenham to win to nil @ 11/5

Spurs are on a three-game winning streak against the Eagles and in all of those three encounters, Palace failed to score.

Tottenham ran out 3-0 winners at home in the 2021/22 campaign, before a 4-0 victory against Palace in at Selhurst Park last season.

The last meeting between the sides was in May, with the Lilywhites winning 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Palace have been toothless in attack in recent weeks, scoring just one goal in their last five games in all competitions.

Former Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has been their standout goalscorer with four to his name in the Premier League this season.

However, with the likes of Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze out on the sidelines, Palace have been lacking creativity and attacking threat in recent weeks.

The pair of Olise and Eze are still expected to be absent once again for the arrival of Postecoglou’s confident side on Friday night.

Considering Tottenham’s current form and their last three meetings against Palace, all signs are pointing towards a Spurs victory to nil.
