  • “Not like that Serge!!”

Roy Hodgson is without 12 players for Crystal Palace as they suffer an injury crisis.

In the second half, Palace were convinced they should have had a penalty of their own when the again impressive Alexander Sorloth raced through on goal, only to be stopped by Aurier.

Hodgson's problems increased this week when Yohan Cabaye picked up a groin injury in training.

Tottenham was two points behind second-place Liverpool, with fellow top-four rivals Manchester United and Chelsea meeting later Sunday. They passed the ball freely to each other setting up a golden chance at just 11 minutes in.

Further forward for Spurs, Erik Lamela partners Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, while Harry Kane begins as a lone striker.

The game settled down, losing its high tempo start when the away side had a penalty appeal denied on the half-hour mark.

Tottenham outplayed their hosts and missed several chances to score against Palace who were very poor in the first half. A lucky escape for Palace.

Eriksen did manage to carve out an opening in the 54th minute, only for Kane to volley wide from inside the six-yard box.

A late injury to Tomkins made things even more hard for Palace, with Aurier failing to tuck home into an open goal before Kane shot just wide. It was his 150th goal for Tottenham in all competitions.

But the deadlock was broken finally, much to the heartbreak of the home fans. "The three points are massive for us".
