Playing at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Saturday on Premier League’s Matchday 5, Tottenham hosted Crystal Palace. With superb first-half performance, the Spurs dominated Palace and beat them 4-0, with all the four goals being scored in the first 45 mins. South Korean striker, Heung-Min Son was the man of the match, with two goals and a lot of chances created. Harry Kane once again proved that he is nothing without taking penalties. Erik Lamela and Patrik van Anholt scored an own goal to complete Spurs massive win.
Spurs initiated the game without giving Palace any kind of chances. The first goal came out quickly, at 10 minutes. After a Toby Alderweireld long ball, Son went in behind Palace’s defense, rounded Mamadou Sakho and slotted home. 1-0 Spurs.
The second goal came on 21 minutes when defender Serge Aurier received the ball down the right inside the box and crossed it. However, the ball deflected off Patrick van Aanholt and tricked the goalkeeper Vicente Guaita. 2-0.
On 23 minutes, the Spurs made it three. Once again through a Serge Aurier’s cross. This time, however, the ball found Son, who struck a superb half-volley into the corner. 3-0 Spurs.
The fourth goal came on 41 minutes. This time, Harry Kane created space for Erik Lamela inside the area, as the English striker received down the right and low-crossed it for the Argentine to score into the far post. 4-0 Tottenham.
Palace’s Veteran coach Roy Hodgson didn’t have much to do on the pitch with such a massacre. Crystal Palace had a good run in the league so far, with two wins, a draw and only one defeat before the Spurs game. However, they could not stand the fast-pacing rhythm imposed by the hosts. On the other hand, the Spurs overcame bad results in the league and reached eight points with this victory.
