Picking the Best Potential Crystal Palace Lineup to Face Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday

​​Crystal Palace welcome ​Tottenham to Selhurst Park in the Premier League this Saturday. Palace are six games without a win and will be hoping to claim all three points in the London derby to edge away from the relegation zone, currently sitting two points above.


In contrast, Tottenham are coming off the back of a nervy 3-2 win against Wolves at Molineux and will be buoyed by their last gasp 2-1 victory against PSV in the week. 


Spurs will be looking to pick up three more points in what is already their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.


We take a look here at how Palace could potentially look on Saturday evening.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Wayne Hennessey (GK) - The Welshman has solidified his spot as the number one this season and has performed well since Vicente Guaita was brought in during the summer to provide competition.


Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB) - A really promising young talent for Palace, one of the team's best performers this season and will be looking to look after Spurs' wingers.


James Tomkins (CB) - The centre back will need to put in a strong performance alongside Sakho to martial Spurs' main man Harry Kane.


Mamadou Sakho (CB) - A defender who never fills you with total confidence, but on his day can be immense. He can be somewhat erratic but the south London side will be hoping for a top performance.


Patrick van Aanholt (LB) - A real attacking threat for Palace, has linked up with Wilfried Zaha to good effect in recent weeks and is known for popping up with a few goals too.

2. Midfielders

James McArthur (RM) - Into his fifth season with Palace now, has built himself a reputation of consistency and will be trusted to nullify the threat from Spurs' right hand side on Saturday.


Luka Milivojevic (CM) - A fan favourite after signing in the January transfer window in 2017 from Olympiakos. A strong midfielder who likes a tackle, is also Palace's trusted penalty taker.


Cheikhou Kouyate (CM) - Another strong player with a fantastic engine, surprised many by moving from West Ham in the summer for just £9m, a snip in the current market.


Max Meyer (LM) - A real coup for Palace after managing to sign the German on a free from Schalke in the summer. On huge wages, we have yet to seen the best of him so far.

3. Forwards

Andros Townsend (ST) - A former Tottenham player, Townsend will be wanting to show what they lost. Scored a fine goal against Chelsea last weekend so should be confident in front of goal.


Wilfried Zaha (ST) - The main man. Seems to be involved in everything good that Palace do. Will be looking to cause the Tottenham defence problems with his pace and trickery.
