Crystal Palace Clash Just As Vital As Real Madrid Game - Mauricio Pochettino

A late Wilfried Zaha goal against West Ham United last weekend saved Crystal Palace from suffering a ninth Premier League defeat of the season, as they bagged themselves a 2-2 draw, but the Eagles still sit bottom of the top-flight with a measly four points, and they face the unenviable trip to Wembley on Sunday lunchtime to face a Tottenham Hotspur side, who were seen in midweek blitzing European heavyweights Real Madrid 3-1 in the Champions League. Pep Guardiola's side host fifth-place Arsenal on Sunday, while Manchester United visit Chelsea. "But we must work hard to get another good result on Sunday". It's true the challenge now is to be focused, massive opportunity to forget the Real Madrid game and start to think that Crystal Palace is another final for us.

Spurs, of course, have had the division's best defence for the last two seasons and this term they have conceded just seven league goals while keeping five clean sheets.

Palace were fortunate to avoid defeat against West Ham at the weekend and have managed only one win from 10 matches so far.

As for Alli, he added: "He is not a player in a specific position".

"He can start on the left or go to the right. That is so important for him to keep that character in his career". "We try to translate here that in football it is never enough".

"It's now 6-7 weeks since he did it, so we hope he will be able to train with us in the worldwide break. For the under-23s or against Real Madrid, it's so important to keep that in his career".

Spurs will be without captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and centre-half Toby Alderweireld, both injured against Real Madrid. Victor Wanyama (knee) has returned to individual training but Pochettino refused to set a return date for the midfielder.
