Crystal Palace 0-0 Tottenham LIVE updates: Express Sport brings you the latest Premier League action from Selhurst Park
15: A flighted free-kick is met in the box by Tomkins but Lloris saves comfortably. You sense set-pieces will be the hosts best chance of scoring today.
12: Almost a catastrophic error from Van Aanholt! The full-back goes for a clearance but ends up passing it to Kane six-yards out. Everyone’s expecting the net to ripple but somehow Hennessey saves from point-blank range.
9: Close! Eriksen drifts a free-kick over to the overlapping Davies, who’s denied by a combination of Tomkins and Hennessey. Really clever set-piece, but what else would you expect from the Dane.
6: These Crystal Palace fans just don’t stop singing. Reminder to bring ear plugs next time I visit Selhurst Park.
Spurs getting into stride now with Alli, Eriksen and Lamela linking up nicely. Kane not had a touch yet. He only needs one I suppose.
3: Beautiful afternoon in south London. The decibel level rises a notch as Palace win their first corner of the afternoon.
Milivojevic whips a corner into the area and January signing Sorloth nearly flicks it in at the near post but Spurs scramble it away.
CRYSTAL PALACE 0-0 TOTTENHAM
1: My apologies for the lack of build-up this morning folks. It’s a mighty busy day at Express HQ and I’m woefully underprepared. Standard. Anyway, we’re underway.
11:50: Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson: “In the 11 games still to play there will be lots of twists and turns.
“I am thinking of the day when I will have a full Palace squad to choose from. For now, I am trying to get by with what I have. I still think the 11 players who start the game against Tottenham are more than capable.”
11:45: Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: “It will be a big battle. Roy and his staff are doing a fantastic job.
“We need to match them in the areas of motivation, ready to fight and then of course try to deliver our way and our game. Of course it will be very tough. It will be very important to win the three points, fighting for the top four. The three points are massive for us.”

11:00: Good morning everyone, welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Premier League.
We’re starting our jam-packed day at Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace entertain Tottenham.
Spurs struggled in the last three months of 2017, when they slipped out of the Premier League’s top four and were knocked out of the League Cup, but have since regained momentum and are unbeaten in their last 14 games across all competitions.
Feels like a Harry Kane kinda day to me… Let’s have some team news and line-ups.
CRYSTAL PALACE vs TOTTENHAM
Palace are without 12 injured senior players, with Yohan Cabaye (groin) the most recent casualty. Julian Speroni, Joel Ward, Martin Kelly, Scott Dann, Mamadou Sakho, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jason Puncheon, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Wilfried Zaha, Bakary Sako and Connor Wickham are all again expected to be absent.
Tottenham are likely to leave Toby Alderweireld out of their squad as a precaution due to a hamstring problem. Lucas Moura’s fitness will also be monitored after he started his first game for the club against Rochdale last weekend.
