Tottenham Hotspur 2 – 0 Crystal Palace Football Highlights
Venue : Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 55′ Heung-Min Son 1 – 0
They’ve been knock, knock, knocking and finally the door opens. Son – who has carried the greatest threat of all the Spurs attackers – cuts off the right and fires a low effort from 20 yards. It takes a bit of a deflection on it’s way through off Milivojevic but the home fans don’t care. Guaita is wrong-footed and if you are a Spurs fan, all is right in the world.
Goal : 80′ Christian Eriksen 2 – 0
Kane drives inside the box down the left and powers past Kelly, who looks to have fouled him. The ball rolls across the six-yard box and all eyes are on the ref – apart from Eriksen’s – who plays on and scrambles the ball into net through the goalkeeper. It probably would have been a penalty but Eriksen’s played to the whistle and the goal is given

Man Of The Match :
- Tottenham will be playing their first ever match in their new stadium – they were unbeaten in their last 19 league games at the old White Hart Lane (W17 D2), winning the last 14 in a row.
- This match will see Spurs become the first club to play a home game at two different stadiums within a single Premier League season.
- Mauricio Pochettino’s have won their last seven Premier League meetings against Crystal Palace, six of them by a 1-0 scoreline – against no side have they won more consecutively in the competition (also 7 vs Man City and Swansea).
- Crystal Palace are winless in their last six away league games against Spurs (D2 L4), failing to score in their last five. Their last league win at Spurs was in November 1997, 1-0 courtesy of a Neil Shipperley goal.
- Tottenham have won 1-0 in each of their last five Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace, the longest run of consecutive identical results between two sides in the history of the competition.
- Crystal Palace are looking to secure three consecutive away league wins for the first time since August 2015.
- After a run of seven consecutive wins in Premier League London derby matches, Spurs have won just one of their last four such matches (D1 L2). Crystal Palace’s only away London derby win this season was at Fulham on the opening weekend – the last top-flight campaign that saw them win two away London derbies was 1997-98 (vs Wimbledon and Spurs).
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has scored in each of his last three away Premier League games (4 goals in total). No player has ever scored in four consecutive Premier League away appearances for the Eagles.
Tottenham Hotspur will be playing their first game in their new Stadium, which apart from making history are presently brawling with Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea for the last two available spots on the top four. This makes it a must win for Mauricio Pochettino’s men..
Crystal Palace will be hoping to solidify their status in the Premier League, further away from the relegation battle going onoat the bottom.
Eric Dier (hip), Erik Lamela, Serge Aurier (both hamstring) and Fernando Llorente (concussion) will miss out on the Spurs historic first game in their New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Mamahdo Sarko will be the only absentee on the Crystal Palace team heading to the Tottenham visit on Wednesday night.
