If you’re not one of the lucky 36,000 or so people who have a ticket for today’s FA Cup fifth round clash between Tottenham and Crystal Palace, there are still plenty of ways to watch the game.
Whilst there are plenty of column inches devoted to the general apathy that is creeping in to the coverage of the FA Cup, both sets of supporters are extremely keen to see their sides progress at White Hart Lane this afternoon, with the quarter-final draw looking as open as ever before.
Given Spurs’ current fixture congestion, demonstrated perfectly by their trip to Italy on Thursday to face Fiorentina, we are likely to see a slightly tweaked starting XI from Pochettino against Palace this afternoon, drawing upon the impressive depth at his disposal to navigate his way into the next round.
With Bolasie, Sako and Gayle back in contention for the Eagles, the travelling band of 5,000 fans will be hopeful of seeing a solid performance from the team, although no one would pretend that we’re set for an easy afternoon against a squad who are in the form of their lives.
