Crystal Palace vs Tottenham LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates plus how to stream and watch on TV, prediction, form guide, odds and more



Crystal Palace play Tottenham Hotspur in an all-Premier League clash in the FA Cup on Sunday.

After beating Grimsby Town with a late Jordan Ayew winner in round three, Palace have lost two on the bounce but were unfortunate to come away with nothing last week at Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Tottenham will have to recover quickly after missing out on a place in the Carabao Cup final on penalties to Chelsea. They did beat Palace 1-0 at Selhurst Park in November though, via a Juan Foyth header, and thrashed Tranmere Rovers 7-0 in the third round of the FA Cup. Follow it live:


KICK OFF


Erik Lamela is indeed introduced. Jan Vertonghen shorn from the back three, which will presumably now become a back-four.

 

​The second half is underway.


Team News – Chelsea vs Sheffield Wednesday

 

Gonzalo Higuain and Callum Hudson-Odoi both START for Chelsea.


It should be noted that Kieran Trippier had to wait a while before stepping up to take that penalty. First VAR had to confirm the foul (although such was the stonewall nature of the penalty that that didn’t take long) and then the wind blew the ball from the spot.

 

A delay is not what you want when you’re down on your luck and the thoughts are swirling in your head, particularly if you aren’t a typical penalty taker.

 

There’s hope for Tottenham still. Plenty of time left, and it sounds like Erik Lamela may be introduced at half-time as they plot a route back in to the game.

 

Crystal Palace will be hoping for more of the same.


A poor week for Tottenham continues. Connor Wickham returned to goalscoring form as Palace took an early lead, before their wing-backs each had a moment to forget as the half went from bad to worse.

 

First Kyle Walker-Peters’ extended arm batted the ball away from Connor Wickham to allow Andros Townsend the second from the penalty spot, before Kieran Trippier continued their penalty woes from the Carabao Cup defeat at Chelsea, side-footing wide from twelve yards after Patrick Van Aanholt fouled Juan Foyth.

 

Without Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son AND Christian Eriksen, Trippier was the option from the spot for Spurs, but he continued a very disappointing season with another disappointing moment.

 

 

HALF TIME


2-0 to the hosts at half-time.

 


45 minutes

 

Two added minutes at the end of the half.


HE MISSES! Julian Speroni guess right, is right, but isn’t required! A yard wide from Trippier. Poor pen, and it remains 2-0 to Crystal Palace.

 

An awful week from 12 yards for Tottenham.


PENALTY! Juan Foyth goes down under the challenge from Patrick Van Aanholt and Kevin Friend again points to the spot!

 

That’s a penalty, too. VAR is checking but Foyth has turned marker Van Aanholt, and the Dutchman has caught the Spurs centre-half.

 

VAR confirms as such.

 

Kieran Trippier will have the opportunity to get Spurs back in it…


41 minutes

 

How has Georges-Kevin Nkoudou not scored?

 

With Palace a man down he is left completely alone level with the wall away from the free kick taker Kieran Trippier.

 

Trippier feeds him and Nkoudou should sweep home, but twice Julian Speroni denies two lacklustre efforts from the Frenchman.


39 minutes

 

Before the free kick can be taken, there is a hint of blood on Joel Ward’s nose and he’ll have to go off to have it seen to.

 

Palace have to rearrange their wall, and Ward will be off the pitch as the free kick is taken…


38 minutes

 

Lovely interplay from Tottenham on this occasion, and Luca Moura is moving dangerously onto Fernando Llorente’s deft ball inside.

 

Max Meyer brings him down right on the edge of the box centrally. Chance…


36 minutes

 

Nearly three!

 

A flowing, quick move from Crystal Palace and the ball is cut back to Townsend again, but his left-footed strike from the penalty spot curls powerfully against Paulo Gazzaniga and away.

 

A let off for Spurs, who need to get back in things swiftly.

GOAL!


GOAL! Crystal Palace 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Andros Townsend, 34 minutes)

 

​And Andros Townsend converts against his old club!

 

Straight down the middle, well-taken by Townsend. No celebration against the club where he forged his career in the academy and latterly the first team.

 

It is an absolutely certain penalty. Kyle Walker-Peters misjudges the flight of the ball and extends his arm with Connor Wickham waiting behind him. No need for VAR…


PENALTY! Kyle Walker-Peters handles in the box and Kevin Friend points to the spot…


32 minutes

 

Fleet footwork from Wilfried Zaha, bamboozling a trio of Tottenham defenders as he moves into a wide area.

 

Palace pressing…


30 minutes

 

Kyle Walker-Peters’ right-footedness is a hindrance at times as Tottenham look to profit in wider confines, and the packed Crystal Palace structure has been largely comfortable so far.


28 minutes

 

A lovely pass from Joel Ward just evades Connor Wickham looking to move down the channel between two of the Tottenham back-three. A great idea from the right-back, just overweighting the clipped diagonal. The space was there.


27 minutes

 

With the box loaded, Spurs peculiarly take it short to Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, who is dispossessed and Palace can counter.

 

They have more pace in their break than the recovering Spurs defenders but Andros Townsend’s heavy touch wastes a four-on-three opportunity, with Oliver Skipp again stepping in well.


26 minutes

 

Eric Dier’s diagonal is delectably collected by Kyle Walker-Peters, who invites the challenge and wins a free kick in a dangerous area by the corner flag.

 

Kieran Trippier to deliver…
