Team Form Palace LLDLL ______ Spurs DLWWW ( All Competitions)
Palace have lost all their last 6 EPL games against us scoring just across those matches. Against only two teams have we had a longer EPL winning run than against Palace (6 wins) and that is 7 against Man City between (2004 and 2007) and Swansea City between (2012 and 2015) . Palace have never lost 7 consecutive top-flight matches against an opponent as they also lost 6 in a row against Arsenal between 2005 and 2015. 25 of the last 26 goals scored in EPL between us and Palace have been netted in the 2nd half, there has been one 1st half goal scored in the last 14 meetings.
We have won our last five EPL London derbies - we last had a longer such run in the top flight between October 1950 and August 1951 (8 in a row). We have won more away EPL games in 2018 than any other side (11). Only once have we won more top flight away games in a single calendar year (17 in 1960). Poch has won 8 EPL games against Crystal palace - against no side has he won more (also 8 against Swansea).
Kane has scored 24 goals in 37 games in London derbies in the EPL, at a ratio of 0.65 per game - of players to play in a minimum of 5, only Thierry Henry (43 in 59, 0.73) has a better ratio. Only Teddy Sheringham (32) has scored more EPL goals in London derbies for us than Kane (24). Kane is joint - second on the list, alongside Defoe who also netted 24 times.
