Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has shared his prediction ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Crystal Palace.
Jose Mourinho’s side host the Eagles in North London tomorrow night in the Premier League where they will be looking to take all three points to continue their push for a top four finish.
Since winning 5-1 at West Brom in December, Crystal Palace have scored just five goals in their subsequent seven Premier League away games. The Eagles have averaged just 4.8 shots per game in their last four away league games, compared to 12.1 in their first nine this season.
Owen believes that Tottenham are in the process of coming out of the back of a poor run of form and will record their third successive top flight win.
Defensively, Spurs have looked better in recent outings having kept a clean sheet in three successive matches in all competitions, following a run of just one in their previous 11.
He told BetVictor: “Tottenham look to be turning the corner after a poor run. Their win against Wolfsberger in the Europa League was the perfect springboard, and last week’s win against Burley reminded me of the side that got such high praise early in the campaign.
“They welcome a Crystal Palace side that got a credible draw at home to Manchester United midweek. The Eagles have shown improvements in their last few matches, so hats off to Roy Hodgson once again.
“That said, Spurs look like they could be going though the gears right now, so I’m siding with them to just edge it.
“Tottenham v Crystal Palace 2-1”
