Spurs v Palace - Mauricio's preview
20 September 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Mauricio Pochettino is well aware of Palace’s away record as we prepare to host the Eagles at the Lane this afternoon (1.30pm).
Alan Pardew’s men have won eight of their last 10 on the road in the Premier League going back to January. They have two out of two this season including a win at Chelsea in their last away game.
“Palace have improved a lot from last season and it’s a team that has won eight of their last 10 away matches, so we need to be focused for this game,” said Mauricio.
We go into the game unbeaten in five matches and with two wins in a week after we followed last week’s first victory in the Premier League at Sunderland with a 3-1 success against Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday night.
“We expect a tough game but we can be confident and we’ll try to win,” added Mauricio. “Now we have to try to play better than Palace and show that we deserve to win this game.”
