Crystal Palace 0-4 Tottenham: Harry Kane doubles as Spurs run wild in second half


It wasn’t a very comfortable half of the night when Spurs were down before half-time and showed the timid style of play that their fans are all too familiar with.

But things changed after the break as the visitors went wild. Kane set them up with a quick brace before Matt Doherty extended their advantage and Son scored his first Premier League goal since September to cap a perfect night for Antonio Conte’s side.

Tottenham started very well at Selhurst Park, at least by the standards they have set recently, as Brian Gill failed to capitalize on a number of half-chances.

After a cautious 20 minutes, Palace woke up and tracked Spurs for the remainder of the half. Jordan Ayew made a superb save from Hugo Lloris and Joachim Andersen had a shot from distance.

The likes of Michael Oliseh and Wilfried Zaha caused the visitors real problems in wide areas, but the Eagles failed to assert their dominance as they went in scoreless at half-time.

It’s clear that this is Conte’s team talk. Three minutes into the restart, his side took the lead as Ivan Perisic headed a cross at the back post and Kane rose above the rest to nod it wide.

He quickly grabbed a second when he finished superbly into the bottom corner, Brian Gill providing the assist, as he began to show what he could do from the side.

Doherty made sure his side didn’t have a nervous moment as he fired home a third, before Son was too strong for Mark Guehi as he got on the end of Kane’s cross to score for only the second time in a Premier League game this season. .
