    Be nice to start the campaign with a win and to be honest I would be disappointed if we slipped up against a team we really should beat.

    By Simon Brotherton Match of the Day commentator

    Tottenham have confirmed Real Madrid transfer target Gareth Bale will not play due to a foot injury.

    Jan Vertonghen is doubtful, Lewis Holtby is out injured and Emmanuel Adebayor will not feature as he has been away on compassionate leave.

    Crystal Palace's Jerome Thomas will have to wait for his debut as he has not yet recovered from an ankle injury.

    Paddy McCarthy is back in training but is not yet fit, while Glenn Murray and Yannick Bolasie are also out.
    MATCH PREVIEW

    In many respects it's been a good summer for Tottenham, with Andre Villas-Boas turning down the chance to head for Paris Saint-Germain and the signing of some real quality in the transfer market as they look to break into the top four, but it's all overshadowed at the moment by someone who won't even be at Selhurst Park for this one: Gareth Bale.

    The saga of whether or not he'll go to Real Madrid has towered over everything else for Spurs and it's no surprise they are reluctant to sell. He's a difference maker even in a good team, as we all know.

    As a neutral observer, it'll be a shame not to see him out there against newly-promoted Crystal Palace, but I'm sure he won't be missed too much by the home crowd as they hope for a positive start to the new season.

    Spurs have spent some big money this summer with the probability of further activity before the window closes. Chairman Daniel Levy has broken the club's transfer record twice, with midfielder Paulinho coming in from Corinthians for £17m and then striker Roberto Soldado arriving from Valencia for £26m.

    It's Crystal Palace's lot to be mentioned by all and sundry as relegation candidates following their latest elevation to the big time via the play-off final at Wembley.

    It's true that each of their four previous campaigns in the Premier League have ended with a fall through the trap door, but it's also true that Ian Holloway's team will relish the chance to have a go against the best at Selhurst Park and maybe cause an upset or two on the road.

    They'll miss the talent of Wilfried Zaha, now with Manchester United, and the goals of Glenn Murray, who is recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury, but Holloway has strengthened where he can and will continue in that vein right up until the window closes. Striker Dwight Gayle is the club's record signing from Peterborough for an initial £4.5m and was at Bishops Stortford just over a year ago.

    He scored 13 goals in 29 appearances for Peterborough last season and could prove to be an astute signing. Marouane Chamakh will be glad to emerge from the wilderness at Arsenal and another player to keep an eye on is Jose Campana, the captain of Spain's Under-20 side. The deep-lying midfielder has twice won the European title at Under-19 level with his country.
    MATCH FACTS

    Head-to-head

    Palace have scored in all but one of their previous eight Premier League fixtures against Tottenham. In fact, they have scored more goals (10) against Spurs than against any other side in the division.
    The Eagles have lost only one of their last six Premier League games against Spurs.
    Both teams finished last season on 72 points and finished fifth in their respective leagues. Spurs finished fifth in the Premier League after 38 matches, while Palace were fifth in the Championship following their 46 games.
    In eight previous Premier League encounters, both teams have identical records having won two apiece with the other four matches ending in draws.

    Crystal Palace

    The Eagles won 16 penalties, more than any other side, in the Championship last season, including the one in the play-off final that took them to the Premier League.
    The last time Palace opened up a Premier League season with a home match at Selhurst Park, they lost 6-1 to Liverpool in 1994-95.
    Both Palace and their opposition have scored in all four of the Eagles' opening-day fixtures in the Premier League.

    Tottenham

    This will be the 16th time Tottenham have played away from home in their opening Premier League game, a competition-record. They have only managed to win two of their last 12 opening-day fixtures (W2, D4, L6).
    Tottenham scored 16 goals from outside the box in the top-flight last season, the most in the top flight. Gareth Bale was responsible for nine of them.
    Their total of 72 points last season was the highest ever Premier League total recorded by a team finishing outside the top four. In the 2010-11 season that would have been enough for Spurs to finish second.
    Tottenham and Swansea were the only clubs not to be awarded a single penalty kick last season - the first time this has happened since Charlton Athletic in 2004-05.

    Crystal Palace Match Thread _69349008_tottenahm_soldado_cele_getty

    Tottenham's record signing Roberto Soldado scored on his debut as Crystal Palace were defeated in their first top-flight match since 2005.

    The £26m signing from Valencia coolly side-footed a penalty past Julian Speroni after Aaron Lennon's cross was handled by full-back Dean Moxey.

    Spurs were without Real Madrid target Gareth Bale but were rarely troubled.

    Palace had their best chance at the end, with Kagisho Dikgacoi firing straight at Hugo Lloris.

    Soldado, 28, scored 24 goals in 35 appearances for Valencia last season and had the perfect start to his Premier League career.

    Tottenham duo Kyle Walker and Aaron Lennon consistently linked well down the right - and their running eventually proved decisive just after half-time.

    Lennon found space in the area but his cross clattered into Moxey's outstretched hand. Tottenham did not win a penalty in the whole of the 2012-13 season but referee Mark Clattenburg pointed to the spot and Soldado kept his cool, slotting home as Speroni dived the wrong way.

    Palace frustrated Tottenham in the first half, with Andre Villas-Boas's team reduced to shooting from distance.

    Mousa Dembele fired over the bar from 25 yards and Gylfi Sigurdsson's clipped effort from a similar distance was tipped over by Speroni.

    Palace's passing was particularly wayward and they needed a set-piece to create their first chance on target, as Aaron Wilbraham headed straight at Lloris from Owen Garvan's free-kick.

    With half-time approaching, Walker played through a scuttling Lennon, who evaded the defenders, only for Speroni to thwart Soldado's attempt.

    The best chance of the first half came from the final piece of action. Lennon chipped a cross to the back post, where new signing Nacer Chadli duly headed the ball into the crowd.

    In the second half, Palace boss Ian Holloway made a treble substitution after Tottenham's goal, bringing on Jonathan Williams, Marouane Chamakh and veteran Kevin Phillips.

    Sigurdsson should have sealed the match but side-footed wide after Walker had found Soldado in the penalty area.

    Moments later, 40-year-old Phillips sprung the offside trap and almost found himself in on goal. Lloris raced out to intercept Dikgacoi's ball over the top, sliding outside of his box and only just managing to hack the ball away.

    Palace looked a different side after the changes, with Phillips a constant menace and Dwight Gayle finally free to show some pace up front.

    Phillips had another good chance but his shot dribbled wide from 25 yards.

    Substitute Jermain Defoe had an opportunity to seal the match, racing past four Palace players, only to shoot wide.

    Palace then had their best chance as the ball dropped to Dikgacoi in the area, but the South African could only shoot directly at Lloris.

    Ian Holloway: Refs favour certain Premier League clubs

    Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway says some referees favour certain clubs, following his side's 1-0 defeat by Tottenham at Selhurst Park.

    Referee Mark Clattenburg gave a penalty after Aaron Lennon's cross hit Dean Moxey's outstretched arm - but Holloway thought an earlier foul was missed.

    Holloway believes Tottenham's Nacer Chadli fouled Stephen Dobbie in the build-up.

    The 50-year-old said: "I've got to learn what a foul is because I thought Chadli deliberately body-checked Dobbie, smashed him down, and ran off with the ball.

    "If the referee didn't see that, the assistant should have. You have to ask if he's good enough if he didn't see that. I don't see how he can miss it.

    "A minute and a half later, we're arguing over whether it was deliberate handball."

    Holloway was also unhappy with decision to award the penalty.

    "I don't understand how it was a penalty, or how Moxey could have got out of the way of it," added the former Leicester, QPR and Bristol Rovers boss.

    "Do I think I would have got that at Tottenham? No I don't.

    "Tottenham will feel decisions like that if they play Man United.

    "I just want a bit of fairness. I want a foul like anyone else would have got one. I've got a horrible taste in my mouth after that."

    That's right Mr Holloway and Spurs are so favoured that was the 1st penalty we have been awarded in over a year . . . . .

    The good thing is we can play better and I am sure we will. Chadli played well second half and Soldado looked sharp and how calm was he taking that penalty? . Was also impressed with Capoue. Nice to see Kaboul back albeit as a sub. Can't wait til him and The Beast are back in the team regularly.

    Did we really miss Bale today? OK we were a touch flat at times but it was the 1st game so excuses can be made and we seemed comfertable & in control for most of the game and took the 3 points . . . .

    Roberto Soldado: Tottenham striker will get better - Villas-Boas


    Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado can only get better, according to his manager Andre Villas-Boas.

    The Spain striker cost Spurs £26m in the summer and scored a penalty against Crystal Palace on his league debut.

    Soldado, 28, netted 24 goals in 35 appearances for Valencia last season.

    Villas-Boas said: "Roberto's a real out and out striker. He's not been here a lot because of the Confederations Cup but he'll get fitter and sharper and will be even better."

    The Tottenham manager was pleased with his team's performance against newly promoted Palace, especially as all four of his summer signings - Soldado, Nacer Chadli, Paulinho and substitute Etienne Capoue - each had a run-out.

    He added: "It's very important to open with a win. Palace are a team we don't have so much information about and there is always a surprise factor.

    "It was a tough game but, in 90 minutes, we deserved to win. We always had that edge.

    "Overall, our football was excellent and our new signings did well. They were surprised at the intensity of the Premier League.

    "We should have put the game to bed but I'm generally very pleased to come to a difficult ground and get the three points."

    Tottenham's players conceded they should have scored another goal.

    Defender Jan Vertonghen said: "We should have killed the game earlier but three points is a good start. Last season, it was always 1-0 or 2-1. Next time we have to score more goals."

    Debutant Chadli, who joined from Twente for £7m in the summer, added: "The most important thing is the three points. The pace is quicker than in Holland but I like how we play, getting the ball forward quickly."
