  • Former Southampton keeper Paulo Gazzaniga started his first Premier League tie in 687 days

South Korea global Heung-Min Son got the only goal of the game with a well-struck effort from the edge of the penalty box, however, Palace had their own chances to take the points back to Selhurst Park.

Son Heung-min not only scored the victor for Tottenham on Sunday but also made Premier League history.

Mauricio Pochettino's side, fresh from beating European champions Real Madrid in midweek, found Palace a tough nut to crack at Wembley and could have trailed before Son curled in the victor.

Dier's main position is playing as a defensive midfielder but the versatile player can be utilised in several different positions. He said: "When we look at the table we're still on four points and we're getting further away from the teams that are just outside of the relegation zone, and our task gets harder with every defeat".


Indeed, Palace fashioned a couple of decent chances in the game, with Wilfried Zaha firing wide of an open goal after rounding the Lilywhites" "keeper.

Spurs were without Dele Alli, scorer of two goals in the 3-1 win over Real, while goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and his deputy Michel Vorm were both unavailable, handing a debut to 25-year-old Argentinian Gazzaniga, who made crucial saves to earn the Man-of-the-Match vote.

Said Hodgson: "Spurs' goal was a painful blow".

That miss would prove costly for the visitors, as Son scored the only goal of the game soon after - curling the ball past Julian Speroni.
