Wandsworth Guardian: Loves the underdog: Rocky star Sylvester Stallone is backing the Eagles Loves the underdog: Rocky star Sylvester Stallone is backing the Eagles

Sylvester Stallone is backing Crystal Palace to beat the odds and grab a win against Tottenham this weekend.

The famous actor, who starred in the Rocky movies, backed the Eagles as he pitted his wits against BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson in this week’s Premier League predictions.

Lawrenson went for a 2-0 win for Tottenham but Stallone, in true Rocky fashion, has put his faith in Tony Pulis’ team who are the underdogs for the game.

He said: “Crystal Palace!? I love that name.

“So, it is a bit like when you go to a horse race and go 'I love that horse's name but I don't know anything about the horse'.

“I am going to go for a Crystal Palace win.”
