Tottenham can go five point clears atop the Premier League table with victory away to Crystal Palace tonight.
A remarkable start for Ange Postecoglou has seen Spurs remain unbeaten and rack up 23 points from nine games. Monday's comfortable 2-0 home win over Fulham confirmed Postecoglou's record as the best start of any manager in Premier League history.
It's another London derby just four days later as Palace welcome their city rivals to Selhurst Park looking for just a second win since early September. The Eagles have been pretty lifeless so far this season, and a 4-0 hammering at Newcastle saw them drop to 11th in the table.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Friday October 27, 2023.
The match will take place at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham prediction
This could be considered the first test of Tottenham's supposed title credentials. Under the lights at Selhurst Park is still a fixture to fear - just ask Arsenal and Manchester United in recent years, and Spurs themselves - and a win will take them five points clear, so the pressure is there.
But this Spurs team are also to be feared, and this Palace team is lacking in that area. It will be a close affair, but the visitors should kick off the weekend with a win.
Spurs to win, 2-0.
