Crystal Palace could include new signings Will Hughes and Odsonne Edouard in their squad for the visit of Tottenham on Saturday. The pair signed late in the transfer window but have spent the last week getting accustomed to their new surroundings and life under Patrick Vieira. Tottenham will be without Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez, who will not return to the club until next Saturday.

The trio are currently in Croatia, having defied Premier League rules to travel to South America for World Cup qualifying matches last week. Argentinians Lo Celso and Romero and Colombian Sanchez are able to train outdoors in Croatia and then return to England without quarantining, rather than having to do hard quarantine in a hotel in this country if they had come straight back.

The Eagles have scored just four goals in this run, failing to find the net on eight occasions.

Tottenham have only failed to score in one of their 12 Premier League away games against Crystal Palace (W7 D3 L2), doing so in a 3-0 defeat in January 2005. Spurs have netted exactly once in each of their last five league games at Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace are set to become the first side to start a top-flight campaign with four consecutive London derbies. However, the Eagles are winless in their last 11 such games in the Premier League (D6 L5).
