Tottenham Hotspur closed the gap between themselves and the Premier League summit to two points thanks to Juan Foyth’s headed goal. In a performance typical of Spurs’s season so far, Mauricio Pochettino’s side grafted away against opposition set up to stop them playing and eventually found enough to win.
Foyth was a fitting matchwinner. The young Argentinian only made his league debut last week and gave away two penalties against Wolves. This week he dealt with Palace’s limited attacking threat and was on hand to poach a goal from six yards halfway through the second half.
