Crystal Palace 0 – Tottenham 1
Tottenham experienced a frustrating day at Crystal Palace on Sunday in the Premier League.
Pre-game, most believed that Spurs would triumphed over the injury-ravaged Eagles.
With Mamadou Sakho still unable to return to action through injury, Palace lined up a brand new backline against Spurs.
Roy Hodgson sprung a surprise giving a Premier League debut to 20-year-old Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Yet Tottenham struggled to find a breakthrough at Selhurst Park as the the Eagles rode their luck.
That was until the 89th minute, when Harry Kane scored a back post header from a corner.

Harry Kane missed a sitter
Tottenham had good chances to win the match before Kane’s late goal.
The clearest opportunity came in the second half, when Harry Kane had a chance from point blank range.
Kane collected a cross from the right in the Palace box, but he steered his effort wide of the post when it seemed easier to score.
Everyone laughs at Serge Aurier
Yet the Tottenham player would attract the most ridicule against Palace was Serge Aurier.
Having played for PSG And the Ivory Coast, you’d have thought that Aurier could master some the basics of football.
But not once, not twice, but three times at Selhurst Park, Aurier was guilty of a foul throw.
How does that even happen?!

Aurier now on a hat-trick of foul throws, which would surely be a record outside of under-13s football.

Pochettino needs to ban Uno from the training ground until Serge Aurier knows how to take a legal throw-in.
