Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Spurs, the Premier League leaders after three games, will look to maintain the last remaining 100% record when they visit Selhurst Park on Saturday (Watch live at 7:30 am ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have claimed three consecutive 1-0 victories before the first international break of the 2021-22 Premier League season, but Tottenham could do without a handful of key players this weekend due, in largely, new travel restrictions for players who left the UK for international service. Center-backs Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez, as well as midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, are would have face fines upon their return to Tottenham because they traveled to join their respective national teams against the club’s wishes. Son Heung-min also suffered a calf injury while playing for South Korea.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, are still chasing their first win of the season after winning back-to-back draws just before the break. Patrick Vieira’s side were beaten by Chelsea on Matchday 1, but the Eagles rebounded to draw Brentford and West Ham United. New Chelsea player Conor Gallagher scored both goals in the 2-2 draw with West Ham.

Even without the aforementioned quarantined and injured players, the overall quality disparity is significant. Harry Kane is quickly approaching full form and sharpness after scoring a goal in three straight games for England this week, and that bodes incredibly badly for Saturday’s opponents. Crystal Palace 0-2 Tottenham.
