They've won just two matches, one for each bank of four - and both of those were away, which is a surprise for a team with arguably the best home support in the league.It's been a bit of a odd season for Spurs, too.

However, the England captain has faced criticism this season, leaving Pochettino to wonder whether the English football public truly value him.

Crystal Palace go into the London derby off the back of a sorry run which has seen them fail to pick up a Premier League win since September.

Ahead of one last big effort, Winks said: "We played them around this time past year at home and it was a physical test then and we only just beat them 1-0 (on November 5)".

"Kane is English and sometimes you push him to the sky and paradise and then you put him on the outside".

The contest was as good as over for New Zealand after Bates' dismissal and India kept up the pressure on their opponents. Hemalatha and Poonam Yadav finsihed with three wickets apiece for India , and there were two for Radha Yadav.

"If Harry Kane is Italian and he's playing for an Italian side he's going to be a bit more protected, because the Italian people are more protective of their players".

While talking about Kane, Mauricio Pochettino told "He is a killer, an assassin, a killer", and added, "He always in practice in everything he wants to kill the goalkeeper, everything".

'Now after six years here I understand a little bit. It's similar in Spain.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson: "If we are to get positive results, it will be because we are giving good performances and restricting the opponent in terms of chances and their ability to score goals against us, while we ourselves are posing a threat". If you didn't score, you are criticised. I know Batistuta very well - he was my team-mate - and I know Harry Kane.

Despite Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose, and Jan Vertonghen also missing significant spells this season, Tottenham are off to their best-ever Premier League start, which has seen them take 24 out of a possible 33 points.
