The Spurs players and backroom staff including Ryan Mason have arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ahead of this afternoon’s match against Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace are certainly the form side out of the pair having won four of their six league games since Roy Hodgson returned as manager, as many as they had in the 20 matches before that under Patrick Vieira.

Tottenham are looking to bounce back from yet another disappointing defeat where they conceded not only three goals in the opening fifteen minutes against Liverpool, but were unable to hold on for a point in the final stages of the game after bringing themselves level at Anfield.

Any hopes of a Champions League finish have well and truly gone and in reality, Europa League football looks to be a long shot and will instead have the prospect of a battle against Aston Villa for Europa Conference League next season.

Among the players spotted arriving in north London were Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, however, more interestingly was the presence of Emerson Royal who has not featured since picking up a knee injury while on international duty.
