Palace struggled to create much going forward as the Eagles’ poor form in front of the goal continued. A win keeps Tottenham at 4th place, level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool.
Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings
Hugo Lloris (8/10)
Made two splendid late saves to deny Alexander Sorloth and Jordan Ayew. The Frenchman did well in this game after coming under increased scrutiny over the last few weeks.
Kieran Trippier (5/10)
The right-back lasted just the first quarter before coming off injured. He has been defensively energetic and Spurs will definitely be worried about his fitness.
Juan Foyth (8/10)
Made a nervy start but eventually grew into the game as time went on. He was strong in his challenges and started to look composed as well. Deservedly scored his first Premier League goal and handed Spurs three points.
Toby Alderweireld (7/10)
He made a number of important clearances, low and high. A calm and disciplined performance from the Belgian.
Ben Davies (7/10)
Though he didn’t offer much going forward, Davies was very fruitful defensively.
Victor Wanyama (7/10)
Palace found it tough to get going, with Wanyama guarding his team in the middle of the park. A confident performance from the former Southampton midfielder.
Moussa Sissoko (8/10)
The Frenchman really has made huge strides this season. His work rate was massive on the night and Sissoko helped his team at both ends of the pitch.
Lucas Moura (5/10)
Struggled to make an impact going forward and was substituted after suffering a bad knock in the second half.
Dele Alli (7/10)
He worked hard for the team. Alli was also willing to track back and offer defensive support too.
Erik Lamela (5/10)
He struggled to make an impact going forward in this game. The Argentine has otherwise been in blistering form this season.
Harry Kane (6/10)
Struggled to find space but he did force a good save out of Wayne Hennessey. Kane has failed to make an impact so far this season.
Serge Aurier (7/10)
Came on for Kieran Trippier and sent in a couple of dangerous crosses. He was defensively fruitful as well.
Heung-Min Son (5/10)
Had a late chance to seal the game but was unable to convert.
Harry Winks (5/10)
Didn’t have much to do and picked up a yellow card for a needless shirt pull.
