Mauricio Pochettino has been full of praise for Crystal Palace ahead of the London derby with his Tottenham side this evening (Wednesday).
Pochettino brings his Spurs side to Selhurst Park for what is being perceived as a “must-win” game for his side as they look to try and hunt down Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.
But the north London side’s boss is aware of the threat posed by the Eagles, who have won six of their last eight games in the Premier League, including Sunday’s win at Liverpool.
“It will be a tough game. In the last months, Crystal Palace are playing so well, they won against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, beat Arsenal at home and then on Sunday they beat Liverpool,” said the former Southampton manager.
