Palace win proves Spurs can be kings

West Brom will look to put end to a poor run as they host Leicester City on Saturday.

"When we saw pics of Mamadou Sakho it looked terrible", he said.

"That result gives us a confidence boost for the last five games".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp suggests that defender Mamadou Sakho - now on loan at Crystal Palace - has been given the best possible diagnosis after a knee injury.

While it is hard to argue that a side who have now won eight Premier League games in succession, at home, with their visitors struggling for form and forced into experimenting with a variety of systems such are their issues, will not win, to state that it will be comfortable is perhaps a little shortsighted.

Needing just a point to finish above Arsenal for the first time in 21 years, Spurs were beaten 5-1 by already relegated Newcastle - allowing Gunners fans to celebrate "St Totteringham's Day" for yet another year.

The FA found the former Rangers man guilty of breaching their betting rules and fined Barton £30,000 as well as suspending him from all football activity.

Meanwhile City manager Pep Guardiola - due to finish a season trophyless for the first time in his managerial career - told the BBC: "Every game until the last game now will be a final". "It was good to get the three points and be alive in the race for the title".

It's a huge game for both sides, however, with Palace's recent run of form, I can see Palace winning comfortably. The only team to have won fewer points away from home in a complete Premier League season are Derby County in 2007-08 (3).




The Clarets go to sellhurst park on the back of just one win in 11 games.

They have scored twice in their last six games, including a penalty.

Burnley have lost 13 of their 15 Premier League visits to London (W0 D2).

Sell total goals at 3.1 with Sporting Index.

Eriksen came to the rescue with 12 minutes to play, gathering Harry Kane's pass and arrowing a glorious shot into the bottom-left corner to secure an eighth successive league win.

Six of those 14 goals have been headed - no Premier League player has more this campaign (level with Fernando Llorente, Romelu Lukaku and Michail Antonio). He was a lot younger then than he is now, and he has had a really good career, but he just had that moment where he could lose it then.

The Denmark global has been a key player for Tottenham in the current campaign and his performances have even seen him linked with a potential move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
