Mauricio Pochettino has named his Tottenham Hotspur side ahead of this afternoon’s FA Cup fifth round clash against Crystal Palace.
Spurs face their third London derby in the space of seven days when they will take to the field at Selhurst Park in under an hour’s time, looking to put behind their Carabao Cup heartbreak behind them.
The last six matches between Crystal Palace and Spurs in all competitions have all ended 1-0 (five Spurs wins, one Palace win).
Spurs are looking to reach the FA Cup fifth round for a fourth consecutive season for the first time since doing so in five seasons in a row between 1978-79 and 1982-83.
Crystal Palace and Spurs last met in the FA Cup in the fifth round in 2015-16, with Palace winning 1-0 at White Hart Lane on their way to reaching the final that season.
This is who starts:
Crystal Palace: Speroni, Ward, Kelly, Dann, Van Aanholt, Meyer, Kouyate, Schlupp, Townsend, Zaha, Wickham
Subs: Tupper, Wan-Bissaka, Sakho, Riedewald, Milvojevic, Benteke, Ayew
Tottenham Hotspur: Gazzaniga, Trippier, Sanchez, Foyth, Vertonghen (C), Walker-Peters, Dier, Skipp, Nkoudou, Lucas, Llorente.
Subs: Lloris, Aurier, Rose, Wanyama, Winks, Lamela, Sterling
