Key moments

  • Michael Olise whips a great ball in from the right hand side but Wilfried Zaha can’t quite reach it.
  • Eberechi Eze has a perfect opportunity to place a through ball to Wilfried Zaha but his pass is too heavy.
  • CHANCE! Wilfried Zaha makes a piercing run into the Tottenham box, slips the ball to Jordan Ayew who strikes the ball hard but it’s a good stop from Hugo Lloris (£5.5m).

  • CHANCE! Crystal Palace defender Joachim Anderson (£4.5m) slams a long range attempt on goal which whisps past the post.
