Tottenham Hotspur managed to hold on to a solitary goal to snatch all three points off Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace this weekend. The Eagles managed to hold on to a point for most of the game but Heung-Min Son’s strike was enough for Spurs to seal the deal.
Called on to cover for injuries, Gazzaniga made a nervous start to the game but slowly settled in and made a number of saves to keep his side in the lead.
His usual self on the flank where he was ever available in attack and was quick to stop any attacks at the back.
Took up the lead role in Alderweireld’s place and hardly put a foot wrong on a rather comfortable night.
Was caught out of position but the likes of Zaha consistently but did well to recover on most occasions, helping his side to a victory.
Used his pace and strength well to dominate his flank and give Palace no chance down the wing.
Started as a part of the back line and slowly shifted out and put in a shift at both ends of the field, adding versatility and balance to his side.
Started in the middle of the park but was hardly effective, and was lucky to stay on the pitch until the end.
Started the game confidently but slowly faded away and was replaced at half-time.
Played a free role in the attack and created half chances consistently but was not as effective in front of goal as he usually is.
Failed to help add width to Spurs’ attacks regularly but was alert to the opportunity that fell to him, which put Spurs in front. Did well late in the game to see off Palace’s late surge.
Was rattled early in the game and failed to have the kind of an impact he usually does in front of goal. Came close to scoring once, in what was an off-day for the English ace.
Added some strength and creativity to the midfield which allowed Spurs to push on and break Palace in the second half.
Came on for Kane with 10 minutes to go and did not have enough time to stamp his name.
Replaced Danny Rose in stoppage time.
