Tottenham vs Crystal Palace team news
Mourinho expects Serge Aurier to be fit. The right-back missed Thursday’s win at Fulham as he was feeling soreness in his calf following a recent injury, but Mourinho thinks he will be OK on Sunday.
Giovani Lo Celso (hamstring) is unlikely to be fit but could return in the Europa League next Thursday.
Spurs provisional squad: Lloris, Hart, Aurier, Tanganga, Doherty, Dier, Alderweireld, Rodon, Sanchez, Reguilon, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Sissoko, Ndombele, Alli, Lamela, Moura, Kane, Vinicius, Bale, Son.
Wilfried Zaha will return for Palace after a month out with a hamstring injury. While the Eagles’ top goalscorer is back, James McCarthy has returned to the treatment table with a reoccurrence of his previous groin issue.
The midfielder joins Nathan Ferguson (knee), Nathaniel Clyne (muscle), James Tomkins (eye), Mamadou Sakho (thigh), Tyrick Mitchell (muscle) and James McArthur (calf) in being absent for the trip across the capital.
Crystal Palace provisional squad: Guaita, Ward, Cahill, Kouyate, Van Aanholt, Riedewald, Milivojevic, Ayew, Eze, Townsend, Benteke, Butland, Dann, Kelly, Schlupp, Batshuayi, Mateta, Wickham, Zaha, Hennessey, Hannam, according to Standard.
Tottenham vs Crystal Palace Preview
While the Europa League can often prove to be a hindrance for teams, particularly one now so used to reaching the latter stages of the Champions League, for Tottenham it has helped to kickstart their campaign.
Jose Mourinho's men had lost five of their last six games before thumping Wolfsberger 4-1 in their Europa League last-32 first leg on February 18 and have followed that up with three wins in their next four games.
That includes a run of three wins in a row without conceding in all competitions, seeing them through to the last 16 of the Europa League and moving them to within five points of the Premier League top four.
Tottenham, who still have a game in hand to play on fourth-placed Chelsea, will now be looking for a third league win in a row for the first time in four months when they host a Palace side with little to play for.
The Eagles played out a 0-0 draw with Manchester United in midweek, three days on from drawing to city rivals Fulham by the same scoreline, leaving them 11 points above the relegation zone and 11 adrift of the top six.
Palace face an uncertain period given that half of their squad, plus manager Roy Hodgson, will be out of contract in the summer, but between now and then it will be a case of attempting to finish as high as possible in the league.
After drawing to Fulham last weekend, Palace are now winless in their last five Premier League London derbies, though four of these have ended level, including the reverse meeting with Spurs in December.
Tottenham's 1-0 victory against Fulham on Thursday, secured through a Tosin Adarabioyo own goal in the first half, saw them return to winning ways in London derbies after losing 2-1 to West Ham United in their previous-such outing.
Evening accounting for the draw when the sides last faced off, the Lilywhites boast an impressive record against Palace, going 11 Premier League games without defeat in this fixture - their best ongoing run against any side in the division.

Crystal Palace held Man Utd to a 0-0 draw last time out, their second successive Premier League game that has finished goalless. They will need to be equally as strong defensively in this game, as they travel to local rivals Tottenham. Jose Mourinho’s side desperately need victory to boost their top four ambitions and their last home league fixture saw them dispatch Burnley 4-0. Whilst Palace aren’t expected to be beaten as heavily as the Clarets were in North London last weekend, Spurs and their imposing frontline should have enough firepower within them to ultimately overwhelm Roy Hodgson’s men and lead the hosts to victory here.
