Tottenham vs Crystal Palace: Match Preview

Emmanuel Adebayor will inevitably be the focus of attention as he attempts to oust from the FA Cup the team that continues to pay a decent percentage of his wages, and with the home defence weakened by the absence of Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen. Tottenham coped well without them at Fiorentina on Thursday, when they drew 1-1 in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie.
