    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      That should do it! Bamford does well to win a header and spring Mutch through on the left. The substitute has options in the centre but his cross is too close to Lloris who collects.
    • 90'
      Spurs have alleviated the pressure on their goal. The get the ball high up the pitch and when Palace do play it back, Bamford is penalized for a foul as he tries to win possession. Time running out for Pardew's side.

      FULL TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-0 PALACE. Heung-Min Son produces the lone goal in his Premier League debut as Spurs secure their second victory of the season, with Alan Pardew's side dropping their first away points. Palace will feel hard done by having twice rattled the woodwork on either side of half time,
    • 0'
      HALF TIME: TOTTENHAM 0-0 PALACE. Spurs started brightly and have enjoyed the better of play after 45 minutes, but the visitors have grown into the game since the opening kick and produced the best chance of the match through Cabaye just moments before the break. It remains anyone's guess as to what
    • 0'
      Joel Ward is forced to miss out again, though Damien Delaney has recovered from a pelvic injury and returns in defence at the expense of Scott Dann. It's the lone change made by Alan Pardew following their defeat against Manchester City last weekend, as they stick with a front four that promises to

      Kyle Walker, Jan Vertonghen, Nacer Chadli and Harry Kane are reinstated in the starting lineup after starting on the bench - or missing out altogether - against Qarabag. Ben Davies also comes into the team, replacing Danny Rose. Yet another start is given to teenager Dele Alli, while Heung-Min Son m

      Crystal Palace’s road form is the envy of the Premier League at the moment – except perhaps for that of West Ham. They’ve enjoyed a lovely start to the season – boosted by some superb dealings in the transfer window – and could jump into a three-way tie for second place by picking up three points to
    • 0'
      Tottenham’s subsequent victories over Sunderland and Qarabag will have done them a world of good, but goals continue to be a problem for them. It remains to be seen if Harry Kane is simply in a slump or crashing back down to earth following an unsustainable breakout season. Regardless of the answer,

      Good day Premier League fans around the world, and welcome to North London! White Hart Lane is our venue this evening as Tottenham look to string together a third consecutive win against a Crystal Palace side still unbeaten on their travels. I am Alex Moretto and I will be your in-game host, guiding
    • 1'
      And they're off at White Hart Lane!
    • 3'
      Still early, but for now it looks like Son is playing just behind Kane, with Lamela on the right. The Korean international gets his first chance to make the crowd roar, cutting into the middle and looking to shoot from range, only to see his effort deflect miles behind for a corner.
    • 4'
      DREADFUL HEADER! Kane peels off the far post, unmarked, to meet the subsequent delivery, but shockingly sends his effort a few feet over the bar under no pressure at all!
    • 6'
      Palace have yet to manage much possession in the attacking half. So far they have been limited to playing balls over the top for the likes of Bolasie and Sako to chase. The duo appear to both be playing in striking roles, with Puncheon and Zaha on the flanks.
    • 8'
      STAT ATTACK: Since Alan Pardew took over in January, Crystal Palace have lost just twice in the league on their travels, while winning the other eight contests – which includes victories at Anfield, the Boleyn, the Britannia and Stamford Bridge.
    • 10'
      Lamela is deputizing on set-piece duty with Eriksen still absent. The Argentine stands over a free kick from 30-yards out and sends an inviting ball in towards the back post, but Delaney heads clear.
    • 12'
      The tempo is picking up in a big way here. Puncheon fails to pick out a pass for Bolasie, which Kane cuts out and continues the hosts forward on the counter. The ball is worked around well, though everyone seems a bit reluctant to have a shot before Son finally listens to the crowd and sends an effo
    • 14'
      Damien Delaney, only just back from injury, is down and being looked at by the medical staff as he picks up a knock. It's a worrying site for Pardew, with Dann already out injured, but the centre-half appears to be alright to continue.
    • 16'
      Tottenham have enjoyed a very strong start to the match. They're looking capable in attack, but what is even more impressive is their ability in midfield to make it difficult on Palace to transition into attack. The visitors need to figure out a better way to keep the ball here.
    • 18'
      GREAT HIT! Lamela takes a pass just in front of the defence. He turns smartly and has a look up at goal before unleashing a nice strike back towards the near post. McCarthy does well to get across and make the initial stop, before Kane senselessly finds himself offside in attacking the rebound.
    • 20'
      STAT ATTACK: Tottenham have won just one of their last five Premier League matches at White Hart Lane (D2, L2), being held goalless three times over that span.
    • 22'
      Much better from Palace! That's the first time they've pulled together collectively in attack and it puts the Tottenham defence under legitimate pressure. Puncheon controls well and plays Sako through on the left, but his ball across the face of goal is turned behind by Alderwiereld.
    • 24'
      Chances at both ends! Delaney gets an effort on target after a bit of a scramble, following a corner kick. Lloris makes the save and starts Spurs forward on a break, but the final effort from Chadli is weak and never really troubled McCarthy.
    • 26'
      SUPERB FROM BOLASIE! Such great footwork to dribble his way past a pair of defenders en route to the top of the area. It's a dazzling run, but he can't produce an appropriate finish as his strike deflects behind for a corner.
    • 28'
      Needed a better finish! Dier picks out a delightful ball for Chadli down the left. The Belgian cuts inside and draws to defenders close, which allows him to pick out Son in open space atop the area. The Korean's final shot takes a slight deflection as it sails over, but it never did look like testin
    • 30'
      STAT ATTACK: Tottenham have not scored a first-half goal against Crystal Palace in their last 10 Premier League meetings, since a 3-1 success at Selhurst Park in January 1993.
    • 32'
      Son picks up the ball in midfield and shows impressive pace as he runs at the Palace defence. He bursts into the area, but passes up the initial shot and seems to bite off more than he can chew as Hangeland is able to break up the move.
    • 34'
      WONDERFUL FROM McCARTHY! Alli latches onto a pass atop the area and sends a lovely effort at goal, but the Palace keeper gets down brilliantly to keep it out at the near post. The rebound comes to Kane but he fails to pick out Lamela with his delivery across the face of goal.
    • 36'
      End-to-end action! Puncheon sends a tremendous diagonal ball across to pick out the run of Bolasie. The winger takes it down well and changes his route of attack as he cuts into the centre, but his final effort is sent straight at Lloris. Back the other way come Spurs, but Kane can do nothing to fin
    • 38'
      LOVELY STOP! Davies concedes a free kick for a foul atop the area. Sako is the preferred choice to take it on his favoured left foot, and curls a lovely effort in at goal that Lloris is able to tip over the bar.
    • 40'
      STAT ATTACK: Crystal Palace have won three consecutive away matches in the top flight for the second time in 2015. They have never made it to four in a row.
    • 42'
      The tempo has fizzled out as we approach the break at White Hart Lane. Son concedes a free kick at the halfway line which Palace perhaps not-so-surprisingly opt to float into the penalty area. Hangeland wins it, but with the aid of a foul as the chance comes to nothing.
    • 44'
      Chadli does well along the left and releases a cross-cum-shot that puts McCarthy in a bit of a tricky spot. The keeper diverts the effort away from goal, but the danger isn't dealt with until Souare heads behind for a corner - which eventually results in nothing.
    • 45'
      M. Kelly receives a yellow card.
    • 45'
      OFF THE WOODWORK! Absolutely tremendous hit from Cabaye who picks up the ball inside the area from a tight angle, but with the outside of his foot he gets that out to in spin on the ball that sees his effort rattle square off the post!
    • 46'
      SI F. Campbell SO W. Zaha
    • 46'
      F. Campbell enters the game and replaces W. Zaha.
    • 46'
      Back underway in North London! Palace bring on a recognized striker in Frazier Campbell, with Zaha giving way.
    • 48'
      Great work from Vertonghen to skip past two challenges in midfield before playing Son forward on a promising attack. The Korean links up with Chadli, but the Belgian puts too much behind his return pass which sees the chance fizzle out.
    • 50'
      Palace are struggling to pass their way out of defence and it's largely in thanks to Tottenham's sound pressing high up the pitch. Spurs manage a good period of pressure, but Dier concedes a free kick for a cynical challenge on Puncheon which brings it to a close.
    • 52'
      STAT ATTACK: Tottenham boast the youngest average age of their starting lineups in the top flight this season at just under 25 years of age (24 years, 355 days).
    • 54'
      Needless challenge from McArthur who lunges into the back of Alli atop the area with the Spurs midfielder's back turned to goal. From just a yard outside the area three Tottenham players stand over it, but Lamela's effort is too close to McCarthy who punches it over the bar with ease.
    • 56'
      DISALLOWED! Son drives into the penalty area via the right channel and test McCarthy with a low strike. The keeper is up to the task, but Kane needlessly intervenes with the rebound from an offside position, causing the flag to go up and deny Davies a goal as his header sends the ball into the back
    • 58'
      The tempo is starting to pick up with Tottenham again enjoying the better of play in attack. Palace do look bright when they get forward, but their inability to transition into the Spurs half has really limited their chances in attack.
    • 60'
      Tottenham are seeing their possession go to waste as they fail to make the most of their attacking threat by finding an opening goal. Christian Eriksen and Clinton N'Jie are waiting in the wings and you get the sense that it won't be much longer before Mauricio Pochettino opts to make a switch.
    • 62'
      Y. Bolasie receives a yellow card.
    • 62'
      STAT ATTACK: Harry Kane has yet to score a Premier League goal this season, or a goal in any competition for Tottenham since the start of the new campaign. He has just two goals in his last 13 league games following a run that saw him net 17 in 15 before this drop in form.
    • 64'
      For everything he's been lacking in goals, Kane has made up for it with a tremendous work rate. The striker provides some wonderful defensive cover and he's at it again as he helps Davies halt the run of Sako down the right. That's not what they're paying him for, of course, but it certainly helps m
    • 66'
      SI C. Eriksen SO W. Zaha
    • 66'
      C. Eriksen enters play, replacing N. Chadli.
    • 66'
      POST AGAIN! Palace find a bit of a spark in attack and it nearly sees them break the deadlock yet again! The ball comes to Sako in the right side of the penalty area and his volley at goal is struck with real venom. Lloris does brilliantly to get a touch to it, but he's gotten lucky here as the wood
    • 68'
      G Heung-Min Son Assist W. Zaha
    • 68'
      Assist by C. Eriksen.
    • 68'
      TOTTENHAM HAVE THEIR BREAKTHROUGH! It's very cruel on Palace, but Spurs have a new hero at the lane in the shape on Heung-Min Son! Eriksen makes an immediate impact playing the Korean through on the left. He takes a touch past a defender and drives a shot through McCarthy at the near post! The keepe
    • 70'
      Palace have their work cut out for them now, but they shouldn't get discouraged. They've not had the better of play, but what they have had are the two best chances of the match through Cabaye and Sako. Tottenham have let leads slip twice before this season already, so this one is far from decided w
    • 72'
      STAT ATTACK: Crystal Palace have scored 15 second-half goals in their 10 away matches since Alan Pardew took over as manager.
    • 74'
      Great block from McArthur! Eriksen causing problems again with a penetrating run down the left flank. He lifts a decent ball in which Palace only partially clear. Dier meets it on the follow up, only to see his effort blocked fearlessly by McArthur.
    • 76'
      SI J. Mutch SO W. Zaha
    • 76'
      J. Mutch enters the game and replaces J. McArthur.
    • 76'
      Lamela goes into the book for a cynical challenge in midfield. The resulting free kick amounts to nothing and Tottenham break on the counter. Alli bursts forward with confidence and drives the ball across the face of goal, but both Kane and Lamela fail to attack it with any conviction.
    • 77'
      A second change here for the visitors and it's a necessary attacking switch from Pardew. Jordon Mutch, who should provide plenty of support with his lovely work rate, replaces McArthur.
    • 79'
      SI C. N'Jie SO W. Zaha
    • 79'
      Applause around the ground for Tottenham's new hero! Son is withdrawn having played 70 minutes on Thursday, but not before getting his third goal in four days for his new club. On in his place is another Premier League debutante Clinton N'Jie.
    • 81'
      STAT ATTACK: Tottenham have just one victory over Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane in the Premier League era (D4, L1).
    • 83'
      Palace need to up the tempo and start committing bodies forward. They continue to struggle getting the ball forward and it's all been a bit static from their attackers off the ball. Bolasie finally finds space to sprint forward and he wins the visitors a corner.
    • 84'
      SI P. Bamford SO W. Zaha
    • 84'
      Patrick Bamford is the third and final Palace player introduced off the bench. The Chelsea loanee arrives to quite a few boos around the ground as he replaces Sako for the remainder of the match.
    • 86'
      Poor decision from Campbell! The striker has the ball played into his feet 10-yards out from goal. Puncheon is crying out for a pass atop the area, but the striker doesn't spot him, instead looking to lay it off for Bolasie who can't get on the end of it.
    • 87'
      SI T. Carroll SO W. Zaha
    • 87'
      E. Lamela is replaced with T. Carroll.
    • 88'
      Pressure starting to mount here as Palace make a late push for the equaliser. Bolasie plays a good ball in for Campbell at the far post and he tries to square for Puncheon with his header, but Vertonghen is wise to it.
    • 90'
      The board goes up to indicate four minutes of stoppage time and it promises to be a nervy conclusion for Spurs who are being pinned inside their own end here.
