There is a great day of Premier League action on Sunday with a London derby and a huge clash at the top end.
Tottenham have a tough looking capital clash as they travel to South London to take on Crystal Palace, and victory would take them above Chelsea and to within a point of Manchester United – which is of particular interest as those two meet at Old Trafford.
With leaders Manchester City in Carabao Cup action, United would have the chance to close the gap at the top back to 13 points, and they will need to take something from the game to move back above Liverpool into second.
See below for a preview on each game, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray and our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
