Tottenham 1-0 Crystal Palace: Son Shines for Spurs!

So Palace faced up to reality on Sunday as Tottenham Hotspur controlled large swathes of the game against Palace as the Eagles lacked a fulcrum upfront with Bolasie taking the role on in the absence of a recognised striker since Glenn Murray's sale and Connor Wickham's injury.

Tottenham's goal came from Korean Heung-Min Son who has now scored four goals for Tottenham in five games.

Palace played very well and Cabaye hit the post twice. Indeed Palace's performance was mediocre and lacklustre going forward as spurs made sure of the victory via collective attacking and Palace looked off the pace despite Pardew bringing on Frazier Campbell to give more bite to the Palace attack.

Yet Tottenham controlled large parts of the game with Eric Lamella and substitute Eriksen, who came on for Chadli, were very effective for Spurs. A reality check for Crystal Palace due to a poor performance and the punters expecting Palace to make Europe definitely need a reality check as it is a long way off given the experience of other Premier League teams.

So we move on to a London derby against Charlton, which should be spicy. Then Palace travel to Vicarage Road to play Watford.
