Tottenham Hotspur continue their FA Cup campaign this afternoon when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the fourth round.

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.

The last six matches between Crystal Palace and Spurs in all competitions have all ended 1-0 (five Spurs wins, one Palace win).

Since eliminating four Premier League teams on their way to the 2016 final, Crystal Palace have lost their last three FA Cup matches of this kind.

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.

Since winning the competition in 1991, 25 of the 27 teams to knock Spurs out of the FA Cup have been in the top-flight, with the exceptions Leicester City in 2005-06 and Leeds United in 2012-13.
