Tottenham vs Crystal Palace: Zaha sent off as Spurs win 3-0

Harry Kane

Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son were on target as Tottenham continued their resurgence under Antonio Conte with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace, who had Wilfried Zaha sent off for two bookable offences in the first half.

The Eagles had asked for the game to be postponed after manager Patrick Vieira and several players were sent into isolation following a Covid outbreak, but the Premier League insisted they had not reached the necessary threshold, finally confirming the fixture would go ahead a few hours before kick-off.

Spurs duly capitalised on the apparent disruption to Palace’s preparations, with Harry Kane scoring for a second successive Premier League game when he converted Lucas Moura’s low cross to open the scoring in the 32nd minute.

Moura doubled their lead himself just two minutes later when he headed home Emerson Royal’s cross from close-range following another rapid Spurs attack.

Crystal Palace’s afternoon then went from bad to worse as Zaha, who had earlier been booked, received his marching orders for a shove on Davinson Sanchez as Vieira’s assistant Osian Roberts watched on from the technical area.

Tottenham’s dominance thereafter was such that Conte was able to withdraw Kane soon after the hour-mark with Tuesday’s trip to Southampton in mind, and Heung-Min Son wrapped up the victory when he flicked home another Moura cross in the 74th minute.

The win lifts Tottenham up to fifth in the Premier League table and means they have taken 14 points from a possible 18 since Conte replaced Nuno Espirito Santo as manager. Palace, meanwhile, slip to 12th.
