Third straight league start for Bale as fit-again Zaha returns on Palace bench |

Gareth Bale has been handed his third Premier League start in a week, as the Welshman and his Tottenham Hotspur teammates prepare to face Crystal Palace in the final Gameweek 27 match of the day.

Kick-off in north London is at 19:15 GMT.

Bale, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were bought by a combined 635,000 Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of this encounter with the Eagles, placing them all in the top 11 for Gameweek 27 transfers in.

That trio are joined by Lucas Moura in the hosts’ attack, with Dele Alli making way.

Ben Davies and Tanguy Ndombele also drop to the bench, with Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks recalled.

Roy Hodgson has made one enforced tweak to the side that began their 0-0 draw against Manchester United on Wednesday, with the injured James McCarthy replaced by Jairo Riedewald.

That means that Wilfried Zaha has to be content with a place on the bench despite recovering from injury.

Hodgson said ahead of kick-off:

He could give us quite a lot of time if we feel that’s the right thing to do but I didn’t really want to change the team from the last two performances, which have been very good. Of course, Wilf has been out a long time and hasn’t done a lot of training.

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Doherty, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Reguilon, Winks, Hojbjerg, Moura, Bale, Son, Kane

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Ward, Kouyate, Cahill, Van Aanholt, Milivojevic, Riedewald, Townsend, Eze, Ayew, Benteke.
