Tottenham were slightly more dominant in the first half of this game as they enjoyed a lot more of the ball.

Forster did not need to do much in the second period as Tottenham saw the game through with ease, securing a one-goal victory.

H. Kane
45' + 1' GOALL!!! 1-0 TOTTENHAM!! KANE!!! Spurs take the lead right before half-time as Kane heads the ball past Johnstone! Porro picks up the loose ball on the right wing and sends in a cross towards the far post, where the Tottenham skipper beats Ward in the air to score.

11' Palace are struggling to break Tottenham down in the final third of the pitch as they defend deep and with a lot of numbers. Zaha is not being allowed a lot of room to work with.
9' Tottenham are starting this game slightly better than the visitors as they are doing a better job in keeping possession.
7' Zaha plays a good reverse pass to get Schlupp into the box, but the midfielder loses his balance when attempting a cutback and Spurs have a goal kick.
5' Tottenham are playing with a very wide shape when attacking. This means the switch to the other wing is always on for them as Palace overload the ball side.
3' OFFSIDE! Richarlison has a chance to score after a flick-on from Kane, but he shoots straight at Johnstone. The linesman raises his flag for offside, much to the relief of the forward.
1' Palace get the game underway at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!
The players are making their way out of the tunnel and onto the pitch!
Tottenham's Kane has been involved in 10 goals in his last seven Premier League appearances against Palace (seven goals, three assists), while teammate Son has been involved in seven in his last seven against the Eagles (five goals, two assists).
Mason makes two changes from Tottenham’s defeat to Liverpool as Emerson and Richarlison replace Perisic and Kulusevski. Hodgson keeps the same starting 11 that beat West Ham.
SUBS: Vicente Guaita, Luka Milivojevic, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Jean-Phillipe Mateta, Nathaniel Clyne, Will Hughes, Odsonne Edouard, Chris Richards, Jairo Riedewald.
CRYSTAL PALACE (4-3-3): Sam Johnstone; Joel Ward, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi, Tyrick Mitchell; Eberechi Eze, Cheick Doucoure, Jeffrey Schlupp; Michael Olise, Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Zaha.
SUBS: Brandon Austin, Davinson Sanchez, Ivan Perisic, Eric Dier, Arnaut Danjuma, Dejan Kulusevski, Lucas Moura, Pape Sarr, Yves Bissouma.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Fraser Forster; Cristian Romero, Clement Lenglet, Ben Davies; Pedro Porro, Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Emerson Royal; Son Heung-Min, Harry Kane, Richarlison.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, have won four of their last six games, including a 4-3 win over West Ham last time out. Roy Hodgson has turned things around since replacing Patrick Vieira as manager of the Eagles, and a win today could see them two points off the top half of the table. Palace will be heading into this game with a lot of confidence.
Tottenham are looking to get back into the race for a Champions League place after falling down the league table in recent games. Ryan Mason’s side have won just once in their last seven Premier League matches, a controversial 2-1 win over Brighton. Spurs have conceded 14 goals in the past four games, something they will need to fix going into their final few fixtures.
