Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace
Tottenham will be looking to begin life at their new stadium by beating Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
After spending the whole of the season to date playing at Wembley, Spurs will finally begin life at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against London rivals Palace.
Spurs could certainly do with a boost after picking up just one point from their last five Premier League games, a run that has seen them go from the cusp of the title race to being in danger of missing out on a top-four finish all together.
The north Londoners do have an impressive recent record against Palace in the league, as they have won the last seven top-flight encounters between the two sides, with each of the last five ending in 1-0 successes.
However, Palace did secure a 2-0 victory when the two teams last met in the FA Cup earlier this year and the Eagles are in decent form, losing just two of their last eight games and they now look virtually assured of Premier League survival for another season.
Spurs, who could still be licking their wounds following their late 2-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield last time out, will once again be without midfield duo Eric Dier and Harry Winks due to respective hip and groin injuries, while full-back Serge Aurier remains sidelined with a hamstring complaint.
Palace's only confirmed absentee will be centre-back Mamadou Sakho, who is on the comeback trail following knee surgery, but that means James Tomkins and Scott Dann are likely to remain at the heart of Roy Hodgson's defence.
