Tottenham's Premier League season kicks off Sunday afternoon in South London with a trip to Crystal Palace.

The match marks the first step in the club's annual pursuit of a top-four finish and the Champions League berth that comes with it.

After the past three seasons saw Spurs fall agonizingly short of the cut-off line, supporters are desperate to see the North Londoners find their way back into Europe's top competition.

Further, with some high-profile players and potential superstars now at White Hart Lane, earning a place in the Champions League this season could be vital to Tottenham's progression.

On the other side, Crystal Palace enter the season with far more humble hopes.

After scraping through the Championship playoffs last season, the Eagles would probably be happy to just survive the season and keep their spot in the Premier League.

However, Palace is still a dangerous side and will surely be looking to get their season off on the right foot in front of a home crowd.

So what should one expect heading into this match?

Here are six things to watch for in Tottenham's Premier League opener with Crystal Palace on Sunday.
